Adriatic Cruise - by Philip Lee Yung Kin

We started our European trip in Venice with a cruise in the Adriatic. As I wanted to relive my memories of Venice we arrived at the city a day earlier. It was over 18 years ago that I visited Venice with my wife Magdalen and our teenage children so we were surprised that the city hadn't changed all these years. I guess it is this timelessness that people want to come to see. There are no cars in Venice and people have to get around the island on foot, in boats, ferries and Gondales. There were hundreds of bridges joining the city blocks together and idyllic streets with boutique shops and restaurants dazzled the tourists with the famed operatic masks outside shop windows everywhere gave the city a sense of culture and atmosphere of a carnival. San Marco was just magical. The Square was packed with tourists from all over the world who wanted to share the history of this city. And would you believe that some of the most beautiful basilicas are build on stones foundations sitting on top of hundreds of thousands of wooden poles embedded under the water! If you Google the history of Venice, I'm sure that you will be amazed by the genius of the Venetian Republic in Medieval times.

64 Classmates at the WYKAAO 2012 Spring Banquet

The spring banquet for WYKAAO (Wah Yan College Kowloon Alumni Association of Ontario) was held on Mar 3 Saturday. To our ‘64 classmates  in Toronto, it was another excuse to get together and we did.  We had a good turnout including  David Wong, Philip Chan, Frederick Chow, Francis Kwong, Roger Leung, Raymond Ng, Raymond Liu, Dominic Chan, and our spouses. David Wong being the chairman of WYKAAO gave the opening speech but on top he also presented a featured talk '趣談-龍年四吉四凶'. Roger and Dominic both brought wine. Food was good even though to us it was only secondary.  It was a fact that we always had fun getting together. Here are some pictures taken,

Orlando is not just about Disney

 

     Orlando is world renowned for the Disney theme parks.  There is plenty to do and see at these interesting places, and adults can have as much fun, if not more so, as kids in enjoying a variety of activities.  In February of 2012, Chan Ming Sang and I, together with our respective spouses, Helena and Margot, vacationed in the Orlando area.  We spent a full day each at EPCOT (Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow), Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studio.   If you like this kind of entertainment, Orlando also offers Sea World, Discovery Cove, Universal Studio, and a number of water parks.  After 3 days of Disney, we decided to head out of Orlando to catch some other sights.  These short excursions are the ones I am writing about.  To me, they are the little gems which most tourists tend to forget when they travel to Central Florida.

Driving, Italian style

The first thing to consider when renting a car in Italy is to get one just big enough for your needs. We learned it the hard way when we were faced with the daunting task of driving an eight-seater (for seven people) in the country roads in Provence last year.  The small Fiat we had this time was just fine for the two of us.  It was easier to manoeuvre in the narrow and winding roads in the Lake Como district in the north of Italy and finding a snug parking spot was not an impossible dream anymore.

On the whole, Italian drivers were no worse than their counterparts in North America. Surely, they used their horns much more liberally and many would whiz past us in full speed when we were picking our way gingerly along the single lane mountain roads, but that happened here too.  The biggest adjustment we had to deal with was their road signs.  Even in a tourist destination like Lake Como, the Italians still did not want to divulge too much information.  Signs were posted on the points of entry and departure to tell us where we were then but that was about it.  Without a map at all times, we would have no idea as to where we were heading next.  You would think they had to do better in the highways.  Think again. We drove about 120 kms to Verona one day from Como.  That particular highway ended in Venice.  If we didn’t know that was the right way according to the map, we would be really worried because they gave no indication that Verona was on the same route.  Only the name of Venice and the distance to it was occasionally posted. We had to gauge for ourselves the approximate mileage to any other city along way.  They did put out little signs on the left when we were close to Verona and fortunately we did not miss them.

From our London experience, we learned to return our car prior to going into Milan and used their subway. We bought day passes which would allow us to make unlimited trips within the city boundary.  For a two day pass, we only paid 5.50 euros.  It was a good deal.  The subway system was fast and efficient and not difficult to figure out at all.  We found that driving in the country but taking public transportation in the city yielded the most flexibility.

Driving Around in England

We recently came back from a trip to England and Italy where we rented a small car and did a self-directed free style tour.

Driving in the English countryside is a breeze as long as one overcomes the psychological hurdle of having to drive on the left in an automobile with manual shift gear. The roads were good.   North American style road signs were clear and well positioned; even roundabouts were easy to manage as long as we treated them as ‘yield’ signs and not just to charge ahead.  The beauty of the roundabouts is that we could go round and round once we are in them until we are sure of where we are going.  Parking in the small towns and villages was never a problem too.  By and large, the English drivers were courteous and would not use their horns arbitrarily and that made driving a pleasure.

Driving in London is a very different story though. We definitely do not recommend it.   Around the clock traffic congestion and one way streets could drive a visitor not familiar with the city literally round the bend.  Parking was not only hard to find but expensive.  There were other traps and pitfalls too.  We were very unpleasantly surprised when we received a letter from the car rental company after our return when they advised that they had paid a hefty fine on our behalf to the City.  Our sin?  We had “the use of a vehicle on a road in the charging area to which a charging scheme applies without payment of the appropriate charge”.  Heaven forbid!  We were totally unaware that there was a charging area and our unfamiliar eyes did not notice any signs at the time.   We should have returned the car before going into London and not the day after and thus would have avoided this penalty and the risk of putting our marriage into jeopardy.

London is well serviced by its public transportation system. We strongly advise getting an “Oyster card” from any underground station.  It is similar to the “Octopus Card” in Hong Kong in that it is a smart card and the small deposit which we paid to get it could be redeemed at the end.  It surpasses the Octopus card because the system would only charge a daily maximum of 5.6 Pounds.  On top of that, the lowest fare is applied.  To give an example, our trip to Heathrow from our hotel would cost 3.4 Pounds if we were to get a single ticket.  The charge to the Oyster card was only 1.3 Pounds.  Using their underground system is hassle free and one could get from point A to point B without regard of the horrific road condition above.  We now know better next time.

The tour of Kent that we did in England turned out to be very nice even though the weather was a bit on the chilly side. Canterbury was a pleasant surprise and so were some small towns which we visited during the tour. We made a video of the tour and to watch the video, click here.

 

 

Provence, France

We, three families from our class of 64 spent a happy week in Provence in May of 2009. The villa we rented was built in the 1850s, located in the picturesque village of Ansouis. Everybody vowed that we would go back on a minute’s notice.

Mediterranean Cruise: i non sanno niente = I know nothing

Dennis called me one day and explained the benefits of taking a Mediterranean cruise with him. We were going to visit Greece, Turkey, Italy, Monte Carlo and Spain.

The conversation started with us but the decision making finished with the wives.

This is when the wisest saying of “I know nothing” came about. These 3 little words are the backbone of all sanity. The wisdom behind cements happy marriage, absolute tranquil life, reduction of noise level and most importantly, this is our fortified shield against everything. You will work less if you know nothing. You will put out less money if you know nothing. I can go on forever with the benefits of knowing nothing.

Decision was made, money was paid and we were on our way to a cruise.

While I know nothing, the good doctor knows everything (I know, it is a dirty job but somebody has to do it.)
