Great Pictures!

Thanks for sharing them with us!

Beautiful pictures. As per your comments on my blog, yes you are right. George spends much more than Bill ever did, and if I have my facts in order, when Bill Clinton left office we had a 300 billion surplus, which George quickly spent.

RC -

Thank your lucky stars you don't live here in LA. I take zillions of photos on my trips and then bore my friends to death with them upon my return. :-) You are getting the abridged version. If you have any interest in reading about some of the places, check out my archives in May and June of this year. I blogged my way through 2 months of travel.

Adrianne, you work fast! My comment was probably 2 minutes old. :-)

It's not that I work fast it's that I have WAY too much time on my hands. On that note, I see my husband in the other room trying to rearrange furniture and pictures on the wall, so I better hurry and stop him before he dents the wall:)

Wow - you don't go in for the beach and suntan trips, do you?

BTW, you've inspired me to finally post some New York pictures; been meaning to do that for a while.

:-), StS

StS -

Not too much sun and tan. I need adventure and culture. I do have cool pics from Australia and the Galapagos Islands when I went SCUBA diving with Stalin's family, but that was before I went digital. :-( I'll check out the NY pics. I love that city!

I thought I have been to some far out places, but you pretty much take the cake. I have a friend that just returned from Moscow, and he was astounded by the way people drive there. I've always stayed away from Asia for fear of boredom. Short of Tienanmen Square, what's to see? I know that may be short-sighted, so please feel free to correct me. I just feel like everyone will confuse me for Air Jordan the whole trip. :-)

BOB - people will definitely think you are an athlete. You will get love. China has a lot to see. The Great Wall, Terracotta Warriors, the Bund in Shanghai. More importantly, however, it is the culture that you have to experience. And China is pretty neat because of its political relevance. Cambodia has Angkor Wat and all the surrounding temples and Thailand has some of the most beautiful beaches in the world.

Those pix are so good I thought you were kidding and that they were professional post cards. You really took them. Wow.

11 07 05 Whoa! You have been many places. Interesting how diversity in travelling keeps ones mind lubricated and on point! Great pics!

Cranky & MSR - Thanks for the compliments. I take my photos with the hope that sharing them will inspire others to travel to places off the beaten path.

MSR - you are so right that traveling is a critical ingredient to keeping the mind lubricated and on point. It always amazes me that people with very strong opinions about the world and of other cultures often have never left the country.

ii--stunning! I like to think I have an eye for the lens, but you have shown me just how amazing photography can be.



Very well done.

At the risk of reapeat; amazing how travel and the taste of other cultures can open the mind.

Whenever I travel the thing I look forward to the most is food! And a lot of good food...how awful is that?lol

Hey II
I put one of your posts on my blog, I hope you don't mind!

 
At 7:25 PM, November 07, 2005 , Blogger Adrianne said...

Sorry I must have accidently signed in as anonymous that last post was from me!

 
At 8:04 PM, November 07, 2005 , Blogger Intellectual Insurgent said...

I don't mind at all. Thank you for that compliment and I can't believe you read that far back in the archives. :-)

II very nice. You are truly lucky to travel so much.

I see your picture from Dubrovnik, Croatia.

Did you by chance get to Split, Croatia?

 
At 10:46 AM, November 08, 2005 , Blogger Intellectual Insurgent said...

JJ - I did make it to Split, but my pictures from there weren't as impressive. Have you been? Which did you like better? I preferred Dubrovnik.

 
At 11:39 AM, November 08, 2005 , Blogger jj said...

No not yet. I have heard a lot about it though. Why did you preffer Dubrovnik?

 
At 12:05 PM, November 08, 2005 , Blogger Intellectual Insurgent said...

Dubrovnik is far more charming. It has so much character compared to Split. You can go to the marina, catch a boat to the many islands off the coast, there are old churches and temples, cute gelatto stands, FANTASTIC food and I went to a photo exhibit of the Iraq war that every pro-war person should be forced to see.

Split is wierd because there is the remnant of a Roman palace, but the towns people built a facade onto the palace walls. Depending on where you are walking, you can't tell the palace is there. There are beautiful beaches and a great hike to the top of the city, but it's not as cozy as Dubrovnik. You go to Split if you want to get drunk on the boardwalk or go shopping at any store you can find here in the U.S. We enjoyed it because we did a homestay away from the tourist areas, shopped at the local markets and cooked our own food at home. But I'd go back to Dubrovnik any day. Slovenia is also one of the most beautiful countries I have ever visited (up there with Turkey). Most people haven't even heard of it, but it's great for outdoorsy people.

ii,

Great pics. Love to travel and am glad I have been to many over seas.

Guess when you are an "Army Brat", (My Dad was a Major in the Army), you don't appreciate the travel as much as you do when you get older.

But, I do remember and cherrish my travels overseas and have had quite a few more when I was in Upper Management in some of my Carrers after my service in the military.

As V.P. of Marketing for the worlds largest metal detector manufacturer (over 200 employees), I got to send myself to Greece, Australia, England, France, Canada, and other nice places.

Korea, Austria, Italy, Germany and other nice places were thanks to my Dad and his assignments in the Army. I am sure I missed a few we went to but, I am envious of the trip you just took because when I retire I want to just travel and Golf, (oh, and blog).... :)


FAR.
