Slowly, broadcasters will present their entry for the Eurovision Song Contest (ESC), which this year takes place in Tel Aviv, Israel. If you haven’t already, mark 14, 16 and 18 May 2019 in your calendar.
Welcome, 2019. A special year. Fifty years ago, in June 1969, patrons of The Stonewall Inn in New York grew tired of yet another raid by the police. Gay, lesbians, bisexuals and mostly: transgenders, transvestites and dragqueens fought back. Those were the Stonewall Riots.
Where next? We have been travelling together since 2013. Together or separately, we have fallen under the charm of some cities we didn’t expect to.

In October, the Independence of the Seas terminated its Summer season in Europe. The Independence was recently renovated in the context of the ‘Amplified‘ programme. Royal Caribbean International is investing 650 million euros (738 million US dollars) between 2018 and 2021 to refurbish ten cruise ships.
After Chicago, the California Zephyr, San Francisco, Sacramento, Vancouver, Seattle, and the Coast Starlight we ended our 2016 America Tour in Los Angeles.
Planning a big rail trip is a cumbersome process, it all starts with finding inspiration about where to go.
Seattle followed Vancouver on our 2016 America rail adventure. It’s main attraction for us was the Museum of Flight, also known as ‘the Boeing museum’. We’ll cover that one separately. But it made me think of a theme for this blogpost: past future.
On Royal Caribbean‘s Northern Europe cruise in the Baltic Sea, Steve and I booked in advance the ‘Ultimate Dining Package‘ and drinks package. We were so glad we did.
Travelling on and with a cruise, you sometimes get only a few hours in a city. Surely, we had time to spare in Helsinki, the capital of Finland, but we felt we had seen what was doable.
