#259492 And how was your day???

Posted by Bj1 on 08 January 2019 - 03:52 PM

A few years ago when I was thinking about retiring, I signed up on a bunch of last-minute/cheap-ticket airfare websites.  Usually I just delete them with the junk emails I get, but the other day one caught my eye ...


$288 roundtrip, Boston <--> Paris.  Available flights as far out as October something.  I have seen cheaper, but not in a while, and not with a two week stay in September.  Mazatlán summer is still brutal in September, so someplace else is a perfect place to be.  I've always wanted to go to Europe, but have said I want to stay for a couple of months and do it right.  Well, this is a couple of weeks.  I wouldn't be able to fit everything that I want to do/see in, but it does get me there, and I can see a LOT of things in a two week period (travel between major cities/countries is often just a few hours).  I have over 200,000 airline miles racked up so getting to/from Boston isn't much more of an expense.


I bought tickets.  September 17 through October 1.  I'm thinking of trying to visit these cities:  Paris, London, Brussels, Amsterdam, Munich or Berlin, Vienna and Budapest.  I'll probably have to drop one or two cities out of the mix when I get to the point of checking train timetables.  Budapest is out of the way, but my paternal natural grandparents were from Hungary, so I'd like to go.  London is probably the spot that will be on the chopping block first, and I won't spend too much time in Paris as I am really only interested in seeing the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre (I know, the Louvre could take days to see properly).


So, question for those who have been, or who have planned on going - what would you see/do and why.  Places easy to get to, and centrally located would be best.  I'll be visiting major cities only, staying in hostels, and taking subways whenever possible.  Davy suggested I only ride the high speed trains between each place, so that'll cost me a little more, but give me more time to wander.  I'm also going to only travel with my small backpack and 3 days worth of clothes, so I won't be doing anything requiring me to play dress-up :)

Don't cheat and steal from cheaters and thieves.  Unless you want to find yourself taped to a lamp pole.  I think it's more effective than the beatings/killings.

A few more pics from Mazatlán....





And a video of the fireworks display last night! I could see much of it by leaning out my apartment window. Next year I'm going to spend the $200 pesos and get a seat at one of the tables on the malecón.

Chadcox - My login is working through a desktop/laptop browser, just not on the phone.  Strange :)   You never know when you'll be out shopping and have that urge to pound one out in the baños!

It's hard to believe that Nolan Gould was only 10 years old when Modern Family premiered 10 years ago :blink2:



He definitely has turned into a very sexy young man  :rosslick:




I keep waiting for them to have him come out on the show.  Someone start a write-in campaign!

When I try to access any of the AEBN sites (Jocks, Twinks, Military, Fetish, ...) on my phone (using android chrome) it won't recognize that I've logged in as a member.  Anyone have this issue and solved it?

was this on fb????


Yes, in one of the timeshare forums for Pueblo Bonito properties (I don't own there, but they have two places in Mazatlán and I like to stay informed.  Plus, I might trade into one of the properties at some date, so I like to know the in's and out's).

The other day I read a post from someone saying that their gay friend was concerned about his safety if he was going to Cabo San Lucas.  The poster was asking if anyone knew of any problems.  MANY of the replies were just horrific.  One in particular said that the gay friend should "act normal to avoid trouble".  I went off.  I'm pretty sure my outburst resulted in the post being deleted (by the poster, not an admin - who SHOULD have done it).  


We might have the ability to get married, but we still have a LONG way to go.


And, just for the record, México may be 90% Catholic, but that doesn't mean they aren't respectful of other people.  One of the things I appreciate about the culture here.
