  • Türkmenabat - MaryHaving taken an early night last night, I wake up with a jolt at 01:30, panicking that I can't breathe and sit bolt upright in bed. Feeling extremely nauseous, I quickly rush to the bathroom, only to stumble straight from Posted by Grete Howard in Grete's Travels | Sep 17, 2019
  • Mary - TürkmenabatI slept well last night, until 5am this morning, although I did have lots of strange 'fantasy' dreams. David's leg is worse today, despite spending some considerable time last night with it elevated.

  • Mary City SightseeingDespite being up three times in the night, I managed to get nine hours sleep last night. I still feel tired though. After a breakfast of egg, salami and bread, we head out to explore the town of Mary. [img=https://photos.travellerspoint.com/435774 Posted by Grete Howard in Grete's Travels | Sep 15, 2019
  • Dashoguz - Konye-Urgench - DarwazaWith David still being unable to put weight on his leg to walk, we take a serious discussion about the programme this morning; and when Meylis and Artem arrive, we tell them about our suggestion for Plan B: Instead of driving Posted by Grete Howard in Grete's Travels | Sep 12, 2019
  • Turkmenbashi - DashoguzI don't know what I ate last night that didn't agree with me, but whatever it was certainly aggravated an already unsettled tummy. I won't go into detail, as I am sure you don't want to know. Suffice to say Posted by Grete Howard in Grete's Travels | Sep 11, 2019
  • Balkanabat - Yangikala - Gözli Ata - TurkmenbashiContinuing the trials and tribulations of a cloth napkin this morning, the waitress surprises us by NOT removing it when she brings our breakfast out. She does, however, make a big point of giving us paper serviettes. We let sleeping Posted by Grete Howard in Grete's Travels | Sep 10, 2019
  • Serdar - Kopetdag - Magtymguly - Mollakara - BalkanabadBreakfast this morning in the guest house here at Serdar consists of yogurt, cherry jam, cheese, tomatoes and the ever-present bread. There can't be many nations on earth who eat as much bread as the Turkmen do. [img=https://photos.travellerspoint.com Posted by Grete Howard in Grete's Travels | Sep 9, 2019
  • Ashgabat and NisaAs he dropped us off at the hotel last night, or rather early this morning, Meylis (our guide for the trip) suggested meeting at 11:00 today, allowing us time to catch up on a little sleep. We are therefore rather Posted by Grete Howard in Grete's Travels | Sep 7, 2019
  • Bristol - Gatwick - Dubai - AshgabatAt this point I will admit that I put very little thought into this trip. It was only much later it became obvious that at the time of booking, I was a little scatterbrained, my mind still very foggy following Posted by Grete Howard in Grete's Travels | Sep 6, 2019
  • Mucumbili - - Santana - Agua Ize - São João dos AngolaresWe wake to the sound of the waves and the chirping birds this morning, and sit on the balcony for a while just taking it all in. Laughing Dove [img=http Posted by Grete Howard in Grete's Travels | May 11, 2018
  • São Tomé - Agostinho Neto - Mucumbili===Memorial dos Heróis da Liberdade=== Yesterday, at Trindade, we saw the memorial at the site of the Batepá Massacre where hundreds of natives were killed by Portuguese forces in 1953 during a rebellion, and Agostinho was telling us how they Posted by Grete Howard in Grete's Travels | May 10, 2018
  • São Tomé city tour and Monte Café I set the alarm for 06:30 this morning for some bird watching in and around the hotel grounds before breakfast. I am not disappointed. Yellow-billed kite Posted by Grete Howard in Grete's Travels | May 9, 2018
  • MuscatHaving arrived at the hotel at 03:30 this morning, we miss breakfast totally and sleep through until we are woken by Housekeeping at 11:00. I am sure this is a sign of getting old: some 30 years ago we would Posted by Grete Howard in Grete's Travels | Feb 13, 2018

  • Moroni - Dar es Salaam. Or maybe not. Some of you may remember the [[https://grete-howard.travellerspoint.com/380/|saga]] we had with our international tickets before we left home: 1. The Precionair cancelled tomorrow's flight from Comoros to Dar es Salaam, and re-booked us on Air Tanzania Posted by Grete Howard in Grete's Travels | Aug 25, 2017
  • Grand Comore Island TourAfter a good night’s sleep, I feel ready to take on Comoros: today we have a tour around the main island, Grand Comore. ===Breakfast=== But first, time to fill our bellies.

  • Dar es Salaam - Moroni (Comoros)Much as I love Tanzania, this trip is something totally different. Today we are continuing to the small island nation of Comoros. “Comoros? Where’s that?” has been the common refrain when I tell people where I am going. [img=https://photos.travell Posted by Grete Howard in Grete's Travels | Aug 17, 2017
  • Danube Delta - Galati - Moldova - ChișinăuSetting the alarm early to see if I can catch the sunrise was well worth it – the river is bathed in a beautiful light this morning as the sun peeks up through the mist. Posted by Grete Howard in Grete's Travels | Sep 10, 2016
  • Danube Delta After the wine and moonshine last night, we both slept well. A little too well I think, as David wakes up with a bad back this morning. Breakfast consists of a typical con Posted by Grete Howard in Grete's Travels | Sep 9, 2016
  • Galați - Tulcea - Crișan (Danube Delta)I have a rude awakening from a nightmare this morning, but it’s time to get up anyway. We wander down to breakfast at the Vila Belvedere and are soon joined by Andrei. Posted by Grete Howard in Grete's Travels | Sep 8, 2016
  • Sucevita - Voronet - Târpeşti - GalațiAfter all the beer, home made wine and double distilled moonshine yesterday evening, I slept deeply last night; and woke up feeling deservedly groggy this morning. I sit on the balcony for a while, hoping the fresh air might make Posted by Grete Howard in Grete's Travels | Sep 7, 2016
  • Tiraspol – Causeni – Et Cetera – RomaniaAfter last night's debauchery, I am in a deep sleep when the alarm goes off this morning. Unfortunately not mine.
