No Graceland today, off to Tupelo instead

When we got up this AM it was grey and looking like thunder storms. We decided to make our reservation at Graceland for Tuesday, as the weather looked much better for then. It was about then that we had a huge hail storm. The news showed photos of hail that was 5 inches across. Glad we were not outside then. Barry suggested to check out online for any driving tours of Memphis we could check out. Well, I found out […]

On my way to Memphis

We left YVR early, our flight was gone by 9 AM ish and we were on our way. First stop was Dallas Fort Worth a short 3 1/2 hours later. Pretty uneventful flight. In Dallas, Barry and I were lucky enough to get upgraded to 1st class, which made the short 59 min flight very enjoyable. But only after the flight was delayed a short period of time while they located a Dog that was suppose to be on the […]

We headed down to find some lunch. We checked out a […]

Manarola, Riomaggiore and Corniglia

Vance found a new way down to the main street of Manarola, it is much easier. Only about 70 or so steps and the rest was a long ramp. It made the trip down and up much less intimidating. The plan was to head to Riomaggiore and look around, then catch the train to Corniglia and look around, have lunch and then head back to Manarola. We started out by walking along the Via del’amore, which is a flat walk […]
