197910 Jordan Syria Israel Trip

Oscar, our old (70 years) and funny guide with a strong German accent, amazed us because he knew perfectly this region of the world to-day in war! We discovered the wonderful Palmyra after unexpected powerful flash floods under blue skies that passed suddenly over our car by chance charged and heavy!

199311 World Tour and USA04

Self prepared adventure with 3 airliners (Cathai Pacific from Paris to Tokyo, Northwest from Tokyo to Paris, Aloha Airlines for hawaian flights), 5 rental cars (one in Taiwan, 3 in Hawaan islands, one in Washington Seattle); Driving has been very difficult in Taiwan because no panels in our languages except airport ( a plane drawing!); A great adventure mostly to always be in time!!!

199306 USA03 NP The Initiation Trip

So many natural wonders discovered all along these 8.000 km traveling aboard a magnificent Buick completely new (0 Mile at counter when leaving Seattle airport); We had an accident in Yellowstone NP: a big tree on my right collapsed in a turn across the road so I made a very brutal escape on left to pass on thinner trunk and branches, by chance no other car was arriving in front; Our Buick was enough heavy to break trunk and branches and we had no injuries and same for the car!!! A great luck!!! Nothing was…
