    One fun thing to do is the Warsaw Zoo - not too far from Hotel Bristol. It is where the "ZooKeeper's Wife" originated. House is now a museum. We are planning on doing this a day before trip starts.

    We were just notified that there is space on this trip! I am so excited. Usually I have months in advance to research and plan everything. I have several questions that hopefully can be answered by someone that has taken this trip. I like to be prepared! (I have read Tauck's what to pack) * Wet landing shoes - should the water shoes be sandal-like or completely closed in? * Wet landings - do you get soaked or just wet from the knees down? * Waterproof/underwater camera - suggestions. I'm interested in a reasonably priced camera that can be used while snorkeling. It doesn't have to have a lot of bells and whistles as this will probably be limited use. * Bug repellant suggestion? * Altitude Sickness Medication - what kind? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    We did P&G last April. 1. Some of the wet landings have VERY deep, soft sand in the shallow water that will fill a water shoe in a heart beat. Keep that in mind. If the landing is followed by a walk, you'll want to dry your feet, get the sand off, and put on dry shoes! 2. Knees down, UNLESS . . . . . You fall over or trip. 3. First I have been a diver and over the years have shot a lot of UW still and videos- it ain't easy to get good shots. Read my earlier posts- unless you shoot in very shallow water, where there aren't many fish, all you will get is photos of blue/green/gray looking fish instead on seeing there true bright colors! The water filters out most of the colors- more and more for every foot deeper you go. Also, many shallow spots like where we swam w/20+ green sea turtles will have significant surge so you and the turtles will be moving in and out 3 to 5 feet ever 10 - 15 seconds. Makes it hard to shoot photos. If you aren't a strong, experienced snorkeler and/or U/W photog forget the camera and just snorkel and enjoy yourself. Finally, most inexpensive U/W cameras Sony, GoPro, etc. etc. have fixed focus, very wide angle lenses so you need to get VERY close for a good pic. You might try a pole, but you'll need to practice with it because in can be hard to control and has other issues, like wobbling as you swim. 4. Any of the usual products with DEET. Treat clothes with Permethrin. We didn't have much issue w/bugs. 5. See a doc- my wife and I took different medications both worked fine with no side-effects. 6. Read the P&G archives.

As a child I came across a book in my mother’s bookcase that she had brought with her from England called “How Much Do You Know?” It was an old, tattered volume that she must have had since she was a child. It was a little treasure chest of questions and answers about all sorts of fascinating facts. It was there that I first encou...

My wife returned home the other day with a handful of packages, breaking into conversation as she came through the doorway. “I stopped at that store we don’t like,” she told me. I knew what she meant. The little convenience store a block from our home had been our go-to place for a generation. We saw it pass from father to son. We...
