Friday Photo: Eilean Donan Castle – Scotland

Eilean Donan Castle – Scotland

I really like this photo and I realize I never posted it!  Good thing too as I wanted to originally post some photos from my recent India trip but other life issues, weather issues, etc prevented me from actually going through all of them.  I have some good stories to share from India but until that I hope you enjoy this lovely photo from … [Read more...]

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: Cathedral - Mont Saint-Michel

It was a not so gorgeous morning but it was lovely finally ticking off one of those random bucket list items I had to go and visit Mount Saint Michel in France.  It is like a dream place a place that (formerly) becomes an island several times of the day.  We nearly had a tour to ourselves as we were the only two who showed up for the English tour … [Read more...]
