TikiHula I didn't think I was jet lagged but I couldn't sleep until 1 am and then I was awake and ready to run at 4 am. So I had a diet coke with breakfast so I'd stay awake all of today. It's worked really well. I even started going through my trip photos selecting those I'll post here.

lunavideogames I am so excited to be in his book. I love Sven's books. The Book of Tiki and Otto's Tiki News is what got us started collecting.

I didn't know I'd moved up to #1 on Cool and Current. You all are so good to us. THANK YOU.

This has been the best year ever. If I hadn't volunteered for a heart study and found out I was due for a heart attack I could have missed all this fun. Now I'm healthier and Dan and I are planning one adventure after the next. I just love all my tiki buddies, you rock my world. Wendy

Welcome back you two! I am not sure if I will make it to Tiki Kon or not. Bad news is the money is dwindling, good news is I landed a small art job, so time will tell I guess. I'd love to see you two again.

TigerTail, You have a very creative website. I like the use of the movie projector.

tigertail777 how far from the hotel is your studio?

MaukaHale glad to be reminded to visit tigertail777's site.

TikiHula a total surprise and I love surprises.

===============================================================

Since I'm just getting back to work on Tiki Art today I will just HAVE to post photos of our trip. I kept our Cyber Free activities a secret because we didn't want GROG throwing a party in our home while we were gone!

We went on a trip of a lifetime. My first European trip ever. Dan had freshened up his Spanish and started working on his Italian just in time. It was fun to hear him converse with our tour guides.

Our trip was three weeks so I'll be catching up on art while I post a day by day journal until I have some art to share.

We started our journey by getting up at 4 am. Hours later we were on our first flight. We always laugh at the tikis for sale on the plane.


Near the end of 30 hours in flight we were no longer laughing.


It was a long way from California to Madrid Spain. We never slept.


This was the view from our hotel window. We later walked the tree lined street and found a Starbucks for dinner.


The next morning we started our first tour in Spain with a stop at a Don Q. statue. I can't remember the spelling for the famous book. I carried the Tiki Magazine with us for three weeks. I sure hope we make it into an issue someday. Dan just told me it's
Don Quijote. The staue is of Quijote and Sancho.


The tour stopped at little towns. This one had a bar full of cow heads.


Out the window of the bus I spotted a McDonald's sign as well as the crowds that would be with us throughout our journey.


We were starved for tikis so even a mermaid in a gift shop got our attention.


Now we were off to the walled town of Toledo, Spain. This would be one of our favorite stops. It was built in 1200 and looks the same today except for all the tacky tourist items sold in the shops. We walked for hours in this village.


This church was the main stop. To see what artists and architects could do so long ago was inspiring.


This is the front of the church.


The town on a postcard.


A view as we left.


The next day we boarded a bullet train for Barcelona. Wow what a smooth ride at 150 miles an hour.


We could watch our progress on a monitor but most of the time we watched out the window. Spain looked like Southern California.


I had so much fun seeing all the signs that pointed the way. How considerate that they did that just for me Wendy Cevola aka WC.


After a night in a hotel in Barcelona we were off on another tour.


Looking out over the city you could see Sangrada Familia on the left. I had read of the church in National Geographic. I didn't know we would visit this marvel.


We whipped out our TM in front of the church.


Looking up was so much fun. They hope to finish the church 100 years after it's start.


Inside it is a forest. The trees support the ceiling of branches.


Stained glass glowed behind Dan. Take your own ear buds on trips. None would fit in my ears and shoving them in was painful.


This is what the overall structure will look like when finished.


I found graffiti in every city but it wasn't in English.


We walked a street fair that was miles long. We never reached the end before we turned around.


We paid to go to the top of a shopping center by elevator. While we went for a city view I know what you guys are looking at and it's not Dan!


Our last night in Barcelona took us to the beach for a


farewell dinner for our tour group.


There was rioting on the streets so our bus was blocked by the police. We eventually got back to our hotel.


The next day we will board the ship and sail away.

I took 3000 photos but I'll choose just enough to tell the story of our trip. Thank you always for the visit. Cheers, Wendy

Too late. GROG not have enough time to throw a full party, so it was just GROG and a few strippers a couple of nights.

Great pics, glad you guys are back-Just not the same without your daily posts. Tigertail lives close to me so come visit both of us if you decide to venture out. We are about 30 miles east of Portland.

Yep what cy said. We both live pretty close so you could hit us both.

Thanks for the comments on the site, MaukaHale! Yeah I was trying to give a 1940's tiki dive feel, it sort of actually tells a story if you pay attention all the details.

Looks like you two had fun traveling to Spain. Can't wait to see more details.

I gotta run and get ready for my own trip right now. We are heading down the coast to Coos Bay again for the grand re-opening of the Egyptian Theatre... they want me to talk about my painting and stuff. Catch you later!

GROG you naughty boy. So that's where all my whipped cream disappeared too. Now Dan has to wait for his banana cream pie!

littlegiles not only did you guys do a great job here I spent hours copying 61 of the photos into a save file.

cy a visit this year sounds like a fun plan. We could add a visit to those we have planned with family. How does the 9th sound for you and tigertail777? What time are you two home on this day?

hang10tiki not all in planes. We had a 6 hour layover in Dallas Texas. It was the trip of a lifetime.

tigertail777 I want to hit you both but not hard.

===============================================================================================
Back to the ship. On this day we made it to the Port of Barcelona to board the Celebrity Equinox.


This is our itinerary while on the ship. Three times in Italy and three times in Greece.


Leaving Barcelona behind on our way to De VilleFranche.


Many times on the trip we had to take a small boat to get to shore.


This is the main street and where tourists shop and eat.


We took a little train ride to the top of a hill to


look back at the bay and our ship.


Now we took the real tour of the day to the country of Monaco.


This man was our tour guide.


We arrived close to the palace. On the walk there the guide pointed out the apartment where Princesses Caroline and Stephanie live.


For a Beatles festival the Yellow Submarine had been brought there. The Princesses could see it from their apartments.


We hiked up a hill to reach the palace. I made friends with this bird.


This was the view from the patio at the palace. Prince Albert was in attendance but didn't come out. His wife is pregnant so the monarchy continues on. In the future a woman will be allowed to inherit the thrown. Imagine that!


Can you think of a caption for this photo?


Here is the front of the palace and


a couple of cars parked out front.


All we tourists took photos of these cars. To leave them unprotected was interesting.


We passed this church where Prince Rainier and Princess Grace are entombed.


We now drove on to Monte Carlo. They were busy setting up for the Grand Prix. This is the box for Prince Albert and his family. It's at the start line. It would be better to watch it on TV. This reminds me of Jack in the Box.


I'm in front of the Monte Carlo casino. It cost 15 Euro to go in and no photos allowed. So we skipped it and


went into a high end shopping mall.


In addition to high end treats they


had a skull chandelier.


Here's a close up of a head.


That skull art must be popular there because we saw


lots of skulls on clothing and used as decorations.


Now it was back to the ship. Nope I didn't even buy a postcard.
=======================================================================================

We waited to exchange our anniversary gifts until yesterday. I bought Dan one of zerostreets statues. It's terrific and Dan loved it. Thank you Robert.


I love coincidences. After trying to spell the names of the men in the statues yesterday I started to read again in the book I'd bought in Italy. This is what I found on the first two pages I read.


Dan said that j and x sound the same and that's how he got it wrong.

He did remember the friends name correctly. What are the chances I see these on the same day we needed them?



Cheers, Wendy
