Come one - come all - to review, peruse, be amazed by and otherwise go gaga over the re-launch of the new and improved travel blog from The Nomad Architect. We have changed the graphics & colors, the lead photograph & logo, which was taken by a new, creative photographer, one Lauren Stafford, of a small chapel on the southern coast of Portugal at dusk. We have also made the site more interactive by adding a SLEEP page with clickable links to dozens of hotels, an EAT page with links to restaurants and a DESIGN page with clickable book, website and blog lists - even links to to an Itinerary Planning Site & a Travel Budget Site. We still have all the links on the BLOG  Home page plus the YOU TUBE VIDEO ARTIST OF THE WEEK link.

So I hope you like the new look, as well as the page additions with all of the links. My goal with this blog is to introduce people to the idea of independent travel to places that are unique and generally off the main road. If you have any suggestions on how to improve the blog, or if you have been to a hotel , restaurant or unique place which meets our criteria of good design and great spaces, E-mail me at I have just begun to write about the places all over the world, so stay tuned. We will also have some guest posts from other wandering vagabonds to keep it real.

Next up, I will post about the third leg of our UK Roadtrip to Keswick in The Lakes District and the best restaurant in all of England. John Ruskin said Keswick was almost too beautiful to live in. I think my next post will bear that out.

This week's Video Artist - Steely Dan.  Lead by singer Donald Fagen and guitarist Becker, these purveyors of Post Modern jazz, funk, R&B, rock and pop have been laying down the tightest tracks and intriguing lyrics since the early seventies.

See You Soon
