  1. Looks like you'll be buying the drinks! Oh, wait a minute. You're off the hook. I agree with you on the Silver Note Beehive. Interesting presentation, lackluster flavor.
  2. Outstanding! May I ask what camera/lens/settings you used? And where was the taken? We're sailing the Scottish Islands and Iceland next year. Hope I can do as well as you with the birds!
  3. Vivid description of last minuteness, Davey! Soon, you'll have a little nip and be dozing on the plane on the way to a wonderful Alaskan adventure. Cheers!
  4. Someday, I'll have one of those gizmos. The views from above are so fabulous.
  5. Can't wait to see the drone videos. enjoy the splendor of Alaska, Davey!
  6. I feel your pain. My dentist specializes in "wallet extractions"
  7. Have an awesome cruise, Davey! Did you ever connect with Captain Paul in Sitka?
  8. I'll keep a count and let you know. I've scoped out photo op places, and there are many. One of my main goals is to get a Milky Way photo in the Dolomites. The timing is good, and I just hope for clear skies. Something like this.
  9. Well, I think in Alaska last year I averaged 100 per day. Maybe more in these great places. Time to get an extra memory card!
  10. We start with 5 nights in the spectacular Dolomites, then fly to Switzerland for five nights in Murren and Lauterbrunnen, then make our way to Lake Como for 3 nights, then off to Cinque Terre for 3 nights, then 5 nights at a villa/winery in Tuscany, then Florence and finally Venice for a couple nights prior to our Oct. 18 sailing on the Spirit. At least 1,000 pictures, for sure.
  11. Yes, Terry, this is also an amazing picture, as are your leopards, elephants and that funny-looking bird! With your eye and experience, I'm really looking forward to seeing what you capture in Alaska. In Sitka, Denali, etc., you're sure to have plenty of opportunities. I have over three months until we fly to Venice for our 4-week pre-cruise land vacation in Italy and Switzerland, so that will give me plenty of time to dive back into the wonderful world of Terry's Travels. I'm sure you're counting the days until your northern sojourn. Enjoy the anticipation! I've always thought it's half the fun.
  12. Thanks for the detailed camera settings for that epic lion shot. You really nailed it! I hope you have a large framed print of it at home in Terry's Photo Hall of Fame. I once knew a guy (you may know who I'm talking about) who killed big game in Africa and displayed his "trophies" mounted on the wall. This is so superior to that! As for your 2016 Africa thread, this is epic as well! It's going to take hours to get through the entire post, but what I've seen so far has been wonderfully written and photographed. It will be a valuable resource as we consider Africa for our 2021 mega-trip. Thanks! Of course, while reviewing your blog, I had to take a few "detours" to view your posts about Venice, Dubrovnik and Athens, all of which we'll be visiting in October on board the Silver Spirit. So much information and great pics. After two hours, however, I need a break! Thanks, as always, for sharing.
  13. Gosh, Terry, amazing photos from Botswana! The lion shot is epic. What lens were you using? Mrs. and I are looking into Africa for 2021. Did you do a cruise or a regular safari?
  14. Most definitely. I'm going to write to Silversea with my thoughts. If you're going to offer high-end Asian dining, decent chopsticks are a must. Al least they didn't pass out fortune cookies!
