Re: Inspired to travel by a song?

Gaël ·
Yes, I must confess that Loreena's music has triggered some trips for me. Or, at least that I have been to places where it seems that Loreena has been inspired by. When I decided to travel to Ireland (in 1997 or something), I fist asked some advice to members of newsgroups alt.music...: where to go in Ireland to listen to good irish music in pubs, best places for landscape, etc. Which made me choose a trip in Connemera and Kerry [West coast], with some hill climbing, an incursion to Aaran...

Re: Where/how do you all live?

Very Old Elf ·
I voted in a city because, even if my town is not very big, it's so close to Paris that it's absorbed by the capital and all the towns arround, making a huge "thing". But, the problem here, in France, and particularly in big cities, is to find a place to live: rents are so high, it a nonsens. It's more and more difficult to live decently. I'm really thinking about living the country to go to ... Canada ... It's a place I've always think about to go (to stay for some months or years) and a...

Re: Vrahon Theatre in Athens?

Hi Warren, I have the same problem in that I haven’t been able to locate the venue on a detailed map of Athens clearly showing the location and its surroundings. So far I’ve managed to find that the theatre is located in the Vyronas district in the south-east of Athens, and there don’t seem to be any hotels in its vicinity (or at least none available that I've managed to find). So I for one will keep my initial reservation (relatively close to the Lycabettus hill and Omonoia, which has easy...

Re: Hello from Sydney's Northern Beaches

Hi Anxious 2, Warriewood is a beach suburb of Sydney (Australia), along the Northern Beaches about 35 kilometres from the central business district. Originally the area was called "Sheep Station Hill" but was given a more English sounding name to spur land sales around 1900, when the original estate was sub-divided. Locals had your (and our favourite royal) Princess Mary visiting nearby recently. Cheers Turimeta

Thankfully DAR Constitution Hall didn't allow drinks in the concert hall. Just bottled water. The audiance was definitely a mix of people. Young and old, sophisticated and um, unique. I like to think my husband and I were some where in between. But then, we're just simple country folk who journeyed to DC from Richmond. It was well worth the trip! I hope the drunkard didn't ruin the shirt. But I'm glad you were able to rise above it and enjoy the concert.

In DC the DVD and tour shirts were $35 each. And by the way, the DVD is definitely well worth it! We finally made time to watch it Saturday night and it took us back to the concert we attended the Tuesday before. If you have an opportunity to purchase it, I recommend it. And when you watch it, watch the version with the commentary! It's not only inspirational, but it adds so much insight to the music as well.
