A super blood wolf moon eclipse — the peak of which began at 12:16 in the morning Eastern Standard Time on Monday, January 21, 2019 — had occurred for a total of three hours and 17 minutes in what is to be the only total lunar eclipse of 2019; and I decided to capture it in photographs as best as possible.

Let us start off with a composite of all of the photographs included in this article.

My camera and equipment were…

Sunrises and Sunsets From Around the World

Attractions, landmarks, food, architecture, topography and people are only a few of the reasons why people travel to different places around the world — but sometimes the best part of the day while traveling is either when the sun rises at dawn or when the sun sets at dusk.

Sunrises represent the beginning of a brand new day through which adventures and experiences await — but sunsets signal the end of a day with a time to be a night owl and go out on the town before retiring to the evening slumber which recharges your batteries, so to speak…

TAP Air Portugal: My First Flight

To travel from Barcelona to Lisbon, I had a choice of airlines. Vueling Airlines was one of the choices; but my experience with Vueling Airlines was less than stellar. Another flight operated by Transportes Aéreos Portugueses — an airline better known as TAP Air Portugal — was similarly priced; so I chose to travel as a passenger on that airline.

The Airbus A320-200 R airplane on which I was to fly as a passenger arrived at least an hour late. It was named after…

3 Countries at the Same Time: Drielandenpunt

When I was in Amsterdam for a meeting back in September of 2018, I decided to rent a car to take a side trip to Luxembourg — about which I intend to write a trip report — and when I was searching for places to visit on the way back to Amsterdam, I found Drielandenpunt — literally translated from Dutch for three land point — which is where the borders of the Netherlands, Germany and Belgium meet…

…so I decided to visit. This is the…
