Evans Escapades in Baltimore

Baltimore ended up being one of our “bust” day. . .

every once in awhile that happens, I guess!

 

This summer trip was devoted to seeing and focusing on Maine

and Acadia National Park. . .and we should have left it at that. . .

rather than trying to cram a few more things in

when it’s really just going to be a rush,

with no time to slow down and appreciate. . .

 

I think that’s what happened with Baltimore. . .

we were on our way to Annapolis to see the State House. . .

we had to pass through Baltimore. . .

Baltimore Maryland

so I just HAD to see the harbor area. . .which is fabulous! 

I highly recommend going down there and enjoying it. . .

and had we stopped with that, given our time restraints,

everything would probably have been fine. . .

 

but NOOOO. . .we do have a couple of hours. . .

we could cram in a trolley tour. . .MISTAKE!

 

Bad Tour. . .BAD, BAD Tour. . .

you can’t cram that much stuff into one tour. . .

they seriously need to take out

about half of the stuff they tried to show us,

and just focus on the really great

highlights of the city. . .

 

add to that the poor communication skills of the guide,

due to age I’m afraid. . .

very, very knowledgeable about all the stuff. . .

just could not translate it into coherent sentences. . .

by the time he would tell us what we were seeing. . .

we were LONG past it. . .it was just sad. . .

sad, sad, sad. . .


I started out taking notes, as I usually do,

so I can remember what the pics are of. . .

that didn’t last long. . .I was so confused!

 

Anyway. . .as we did when we had a horrible tour in Boston,

we will return, and give Baltimore another shot,

when we have a LOT more time to explore. . .

 

Just hate that we basically wasted $26 pp for the tour. . .

plus $26 for parking. . .plus a tip. . . (courtesy only)

and two hours of our time. . .

 

Okay. . .enough whining. . .on to Annapolis. . .
