BIKING TOUR OF BELGRADE

By now, you probably know that I do most things spontaneously. So when on Wednesday afternoon felt I needed a break from editing the videos from our amazing INAUGURAL BELGRADE “SOIRÉE MUSIQUE” the night before I decided to take a short walk to an electronics store at Terazije in the heart of downtown Belgrade.  Well, almost three hours later, I returned from the "short walk" with a plethora of pictures which rekindled some old memories and created some new discoveries. Care to join me?

WALKING TOUR OF BELGRADE

TOUR OF THE ROCKIES SIERRA NEVADAS, GRAND TETONS – TOC

Our Tour of the Rockies road trip was inspired by the sizzling Arizona summer heat. Or more precisely, trying to get away from it. After 3 months of 105F to 115F weather, and barely three cooler monsoon days in between, we decided to head straight north into presumably cooler mountain areas - all the way to Canada. Alas, that was not to be. Hot weather and smokey haze generated by widespread forest fires in the western states, stayed with us all the way to Wyoming. That's where and when we decided to change our plans and do a turn-about-face. Instead of a Tour of the Rockies, our trip became a Tour of the Grand Tetons and the Sierra Nevadas.

EUROPE 2017: THE GRANDEST OF THE GRAND TRIPS

The idea about this entire trip was conceived last fall (2016) as a possible cruise down Europe’s longest river. When that did not pan out, Placido Domingo’s AIDA became the magnet that drew us to Vienna. Spending some quality time with my family there was an extra special bonus. And then when we sold my Rainbow Shower property in Maui, having worked like slaves for a month to make it happen, Elizabeth and I decided to go on this European trip and take this “cruise on 4 wheels” as our “reward” for all the hard work. We have traveled around the world many times in the last 9 years. And all of those trips were wonderful in their own way. But this month we have spent in Europe is not only the longest but also the grandest of them all.

NEW YORK, PRINCETON… BUT MOSTLY “AIDA”

The main reason for this short trip is the performance of AIDA at the Metropolitan Opera. This is something I had been planning long before we left Maui. And now it is coming to fruition. We are finally going to see the "grandest of the grand operas" performed by one of the world's top opera companies.
