    Caving with Carlin Part 3

    $0.00

    Anita and Carlin joined me in the small space and had just enough room to crouch together in the space to catch our breath while we waited for the next direction.   Anita and I both admitted that while we were having a marvelous adventure there was no way we were going to do this again!   We really admire the skills of Carlin and other adventure cavers (spelunkers) and explorers even more!   This is not an exercise for the timid!

  12. Cliffs

    Caving with Carlin Part 4

    $0.00

    Carlin led us along a scenic hike along the base of a cliff, clambering over a multitude of rocks and the occasional root.  Looking up, there were always towering walls of rock soaring up towards the sky.   We reached this place called “the Anvil” and here we looked up and saw a giant rock formation hanging precipitously over our heads!   I looked around and saw no place to go from here and wondered what Carlin had in mind for us now!  As we took a moment to catch our breath he told us about the rock climbers and how there are several routes up this steep cliff!   In my mind I am saying “are you expecting us to climb up there?”

    A Charmer in the Heart of Knoxville - The Oliver: Knoxville, Tennessee

    $0.00

    Knoxville is a city filled with southern charm, history and hospitality, so staying in a chain hotel would be out of the question. However, there is one boutique hotel in town and it’s a gem. Visit The Oliver, located on Market Square in the heart of downtown. Built in 1876 by German immigrant Peter Kern, it was a bakery and retail outlet of sorts. Peter was a man with a vision, and he is remembered today by the bar located in the hotel. It’s known as the Peter Kern Library Bar. It has a speakeasy vibe that serves up old school cocktails. The drink menus are hidden in old World Book Encyclopedias (Boomers will remember those – I still have mine!) This alone is a reason to stay here.

    Balloons over Bagan – Myanmar (Burma)

    $0.00

    There is a well-known saying, “Bagan is (the) spirit of (the) history of Myanmar” and to fully understand the importance and complexity of the Buddhist influence over Myanmar then you really should treat yourself to a hot air balloon flight over the ancient city of Bagan. Although not yet awarded a UNESCIO World Heritage listing, this area is home to the highest density of Buddhist architecture anywhere in the world and stretches across 42 square kilometers of the Irrawaddy plain. I had already spent two leisurely days exploring the area by electric moped, where I  was amazed by the craftsmanship of the builders dating back to the 11th and 13th centuries, however, I needed to experience a “birds eye view,” to really appreciate the historic and cultural wealth of this site.

We chose the Everglades City Rod and Gun Club as our place to land. It is the Western Gateway to The Everglades National Park.
