When I decided to visit Barcelona Spain in January 2016 I looked at photos on the Internet to make my decision as there were other places that I was considering visiting instead. It was photos of Guell Park that made me most want to visit Barcelona over other cities. I... Continue reading

I've always said that I believe very little of what I hear and only some of what I see. The same goes for photographs as I know now that they can be edited and manipulated in many ways. I still often get asked by many of my friends and people... Continue reading

Thank you for the Flickr tip! I like the external hard drive BUT, Ive known of some that have crashed :( I have learned to have at least two back ups the hard way foe important photos. Sorry to hear you lost some of your photos too! Yes, Facebook is not the best way to store photos for sure, but I will say that I found some photos that I thought were gone for good that way and they were better than nothing. Happy New Year!
I'm glad that I'm not the only one whose lost important photos as I felt really bad about it. I'm sorry you lost some photos too. I know that I'm taking chances on any site which is why I will always TRY to have some other back up as well. Thanks for stopping by. It's always great to hear your thoughts and experiences!

Everyone thinks I'm crazy for wanting to visit Vermont in the wintertime. It's true that I have friends and family that I want to see regardless of the time of the year. The truth is I miss the seasons now that I have lived in Florida for eight years. I... Continue reading

This post is just a look back at my travels during 2015. I chose my top five trips and a few of my personal favorite photos. I do believe that Oahu and Vermont made the list only partially because I have friends there and that tends to make vacations more... Continue reading

While visiting Florence I chose to go on the "Tuscany in a Day" tour. It was very good tour but it was also very long. It started at 7:00 AM in Florence and ended back in Florence at 9:00 PM. Perhaps it would not have seemed so long to me... Continue reading

It's become a tradition for my husband and I to visit the Gaylord Palm's ICE exhibit in Kissimmee, Florida during the holiday season each year. I really like staying at the hotel. There is so much to do at the hotel itself as well as the Kissimmee area. The Ice... Continue reading

Thank you for the compliments and visiting. I hope you get to travel soon too!
I understand completely. I had my daughter while in college and didn't travel a lot until the last few years.
Not yet. I hope to go this Spring. Thanks for visiting.
