Hello everyone and welcome to the first edition of the John and Anna Travels Travelogue - a blog about travel based on our experiences (both good and bad). It’s also a place where our friends and clients can post their information and pictures. Best of all, it’s a great way to stay in touch with family and friends.
Anna and I try to travel 3 – 4 per year, with one trip being sort of the epic trip and the others a bit more low key, like a beach, mountain, or driving vacation. It all depends on the time of year, amount of time off we have, and our budget.
Before I start writing, I’d like to say that the way Anna and I travel might be a bit different than you might expect. I am British by heritage and my Mom taught me to be frugal (if you had met Marge you would know exactly what I’m talking about). Anna is originally from Poland and is particularly European in her views; she likes to buy the best but pay the least. Together we share the love for good quality stuff, but at the lowest possible price. We love gourmet food but also eat from street vendors; we like excursions but not the price charged by the cruise lines or the hotels. We can be very creative and adventurous. We like to see, do, and eat everything!
For the purpose of this travelogue, I will be breaking this one trip up into bite-sized pieces in an attempt to keep you sane. The Travelogue is quite interactive so please feel free to comment and contribute.
