Quote from: Greg on September 16, 2023, 05:53:15 PMSwitzerland is the top choice for now.I'd like to go to Yosemite but the flights are too expensive.In a few years I might also take everyone to Iceland. Currently my youngest two are still too young to fully enjoy it. Also really interested in seeing Iran before I die.
Quote from: Instaurare omnia on September 16, 2023, 08:34:01 AMGo to Switzerland. If you stay in Chelsea NYC, you'll regret it. Manhattan has devolved into one of the levels of Hell. There is nothing there anymore worth seeing or doing that would outshine the rudeness, noise, pollution, general decay, and hordes of "recent arrivals" sleeping rough on the sidewalk. And you do know that the denizens of Chelsea are overwhelmingly preening sodomites?

Quote from: Greg on September 25, 2023, 03:43:42 AMJust went to Rye in E.Sussex this weekend.The Latin Mass Society had a mass at St. Augustine's Church which is a 13th Century Church on Romney Marsh in a tiny hamlet called Snave, which was Anglican, (originally Catholic of course), I imagine and fell into disuse. It is now owned and maintained by an historical buildings society and they let the LMS have a mass there once per year. In fact the historical buildings man attended the mass and made a very nice speech afterwards. I was wondering why Fr. Diaz gave a notice before communion about only Catholics in a state of grace receiving communion. I could not imagine anyone else driving more than an hour to rural Kent to attend mass on a Saturday.Afterwards I took my oldest and youngest boys to Rye and we had one of the best fish and chips I have eaten in ages. Rye is a pretty amazing town. It is chocolate box pretty, relatively easy to park and very much like the best of the Cornish fishing villages, without the bother and expense of going to Cornwall.I always think of Rye as Kent, but it is just over the border in East. Sussex.If you are ever visiting from America then consider taking a train from London. It is like going back in a time machine. You can visit the site of the Battle of Hastings at the same time.
