• A 9000 Mile Road Trip! and Other 2016 Highlights

    Jan 29, 2017

    The year 2016 was a different kind of travel year for us. Rather than living out of suitcases in foreign lands, we spent the majority of the year traveling in North America. Much of it was in the comfort and convenience of our RV. (You only unpack once in an RV!) We still managed to make 4 trips to other countries, including Canada, as part of our road trip. Here is a recap of our 2016 travels. Read on, too, to find out which of the 7 continents we are off to next.  « Read More »

  • A Child Learns “Living” History

    Aug 28, 2016

    When we left Florida on our RV Road Trip up the Eastern Seaboard, our goal was simply to see what we could see. Neither of us had been as far north as New England and, after a lot of international travel, we wanted to see more of North America. Most importantly, we’d get to have our 8-year-old granddaughter with us for part of the summer. What we didn’t know was how much fun that would be. See if you can figure out who had the most fun….

Read on, and I’ll let you in some of the wonderful things I love about visiting this island country.  « Read More »

  • Rome By Night

    Nov 17, 2015

    Roaming around Rome at night is like enjoying the finest of theater. The Eternal City puts on a show for you. The Romans have wisely chosen to light their famous monuments in a soft orange glow that doesn’t glare the way most city lights do. Rome is safe at night – all the Romans are out – and the restaurants and bars are bustling. What could be better than to grab your camera and join the fun.  « Read More »

  • Merrie Olde England

    Oct 11, 2015

    What’s the best way to travel from Paris to London? Take the “Chunnel”, everyone said. That’s the tunnel that was dug 250 feet under the English Channel. While that in itself seems miraculous to me, I couldn’t believe how easy it was to make this trip. All we did was go to the station, get on a high-speed train, kick off our shoes, and voila! 35 minutes later we were in London. We had crossed the Straits of Dover, underwater.  « Read More »

  • A Day In Paris – Market, Masterpieces And Midnight

    Jun 28, 2015

    Just how good can one day be? In Paris our days have been spectacular and filled with variety. On one particular day we went to an outdoor food market in the morning, viewed world class masterpieces at the Louvre later in the day and watched from a sidewalk cafe as the Eiffel Tower lit up for the evening. It was a pretty darn good day for these two Americans in Paris.  « Read More »
