Chasing the Light in Norway

Chasing the Light in Norway

As you know, we do not consider ourselves on vacation. Full time travel is our lifestyle for now. But on 28 March the DaMClark’s embarked on an honest to goodness vacation to the top of the world on a Hurtigruten Ferry 3,000 miles along the coast of Norway for 12 nights. One could say - when we take a vacation, we really take a vacation.

Houston, the Damclark’s Have Landed

After our enjoyable Tyler stay, it was time to mosey on down the highway. On February 17, we meandered the backroads to Seabrook, Texas, a community on Clear Lake south of Houston. We’re here specifically to visit NASA Johnson Space Center/Space Center Houston and to hop over to Galveston Island while we’re in the area.

We left Ghent, Belgium on 19 August, and boarded what was supposed to be an uneventful, no connection changes train ride to Lille, France. After we settled ourselves for a 90-minute ride, and arrived at the trains first stop, the train agent walked around checking tickets – no worries, this always happens. When he checked ours, he told us that this train splits and we are in the compartments going to the wrong city.

On 12 August, we spent a long travel day to Gent (Ghent), Belgium with what was supposed to be 3 train changes. As happens from time to time, one of our connections was cancelled so D figured out a different one while we were traveling, but it made for 4 train changes and a very, very long day to Ghent.

Surprising Capitol Reef National Park

We left Moab on April 25 for Torrey, Utah. Last year while traveling through Salt Lake City, Keith and Kami, our Airbnb hosts, mentioned we should visit Capitol Reef National Park and that it’s their favorite. We hadn’t heard of Capitol Reef and since then have found we aren’t the only ones.

Ahh, Sorrento

Ahh, Sorrento

We boarded the train for the one-hour ride to Naples and picked up our rental car nearby. When we left the Europcar rental agency, the clerk mentioned that our car was covered for theft anywhere outside of Naples and that we would need to pay (Euro) 500 if stolen in Naples. We told her we would be going to Sorrento and she said Sorrento – good, Naples – not safe!

Picturesque Regensburg

Picturesque Regensburg

We took a scenic drive from Bamberg south to Regensburg, located on the northernmost section of the Danube River and known for its well preserved medieval core. We stayed at an Airbnb within the old town for the next 3 nights. After dropping our bags, we stopped into a brauhaus (brew house) around the corner from where we were staying. We could already feel the great vibe in town and looked forward to wandering the next day.
