Where to Travel in 2014

Marrakech, Morocco

With 2014 just starting up, it’s time to start planning your year of travel.  I pulled together a list of great destinations to check out in the new Year with recommendations on when to go there.  I pulled these from lists of places I have visited personally to make sure the recommendation is not simply just a rehash of other lists.   Here is … [Read more...]

Friday Photo: The Edge of the Waterfall – Australia

The Edge of the Waterfall - Australia

Yeah well maybe it’s not the safest place to find yourself, but we were careful.  Or at least we try to be careful.  We wandered over the street and across the boulders to get closer to the edge of the waterfall and see what there is to see.  It was quite a long drop down to be honest, and I was not going to push myself to the edge for anything … [Read more...]

I have heard about the race for years, but never had the chance to attend it.  Honestly this was my first ever Horse Race!  I don’t think I’m going to get into horse races perhaps, but it was interesting getting the chance to see the 152nd running of this iconic … [Read more...]
