It’s been said that I am always on “cruise control” — either planning my next trip or coming down from my last one. I love to travel because I love to experience new things and see places I’ve dreamed about all my life.  For a long time, I did not travel — mostly because I thought I could not do it on my own.  Finally, I just got tired of waiting for someone to join me on my journeys and I headed out.  My first trips were cruises — I thought it would be an easy way to see a number of places, be able to unpack once — and not really travel alone because I would meet people on the ship.  Also, if I liked a place, I would feel more confident about going back on my own and staying longer.  This plan is working well for me — in the past 4 years, I’ve been to Spain, Italy, France, Greece, Turkey, Egypt, Malta, Tunisa, Croatia, Montenegro, Portugal and now I’m preparing for trips to South America.

In this blog, I will share some of my trips (many have been shared with my Facebook friends who say they like to live vicariously through my adventures) as well as some amazing things that I have been able to do and see.

I hope you enjoy my stories!
