Belgium… what do you know about this country that sits right beside France and Germany? We knew very little, but we were going there for a race at the world-famous Spa-Francorchamps racetrack. Since we’d never been to Belgium before, we thought we’d spend some time after the race doing a quick tour of the area. With only about 2 ½ days before we were scheduled to be in Germany, we took in as much as we could in that short period of time… and nobody does speed-touring like us!
It’s been a while since we posted – life changes, health and work gets in the way – but we still have that wanderlust, the desire for adventure … even if we’re not currently able to get out and experience it all ourselves! That said, we’re here today to share … because we can’t keep this to ourselves! We love living vicariously through the lives and stories of friend and author, Nick Harvey and his wife Cheryl.

From our base just outside of Speyer/Hockenheim in Germany, we did a number of day trips that are easy to get to and worth the time and effort. Our trip to Tübingen – just outside Stuttgart, was just over an hour-and-a-half south of our base. We combined the trip to Tübingen with a visit to beautiful Lichtenstein Castle which is close by – about 40 minutes by car, making it an ideal double adventure easily done in one day.

~ An Interview with Author Nicholas Harvey about his Cayman Islands-inspired novel, “Twelve Mile Bank” We’re pleased to introduce you today to a new author, an old acquaintance of ours from the motorsport corner of our world.

While Nick currently works for Chip Ganassi Racing in the NASCAR series, he and his wife always manage to squeeze every last minute of life out of each and every day.
Barbados has not been hit by a hurricane since 1955 and has not been affected by either of the recent mega-storms, Irma and Maria but it is still suffering from their impact. According to Petra Roach, director, USA for the Barbados Tourism Marketing Inc., confusion with the island of Barbuda, and general lack of knowledge about Caribbean geography, has had an impact on its tourism outlook. “We are totally empathetic with the victims of these storms and are very proud to be part of the Caribbean region,” Roach told TMR, “but travel agents should recognize that we are not in the hurricane belt.”
