Highlights of my Week in Sydney Australia

Highlights of my Week in Sydney Australia

Highlights of my Week in Sydney Australia My trip to Australia was ten years in the making.  In December 2006, I had a plane ticket to Sydney.  I canceled it because I felt overwhelmed with the planning process and I was only going to stay for two weeks.  I realized it wouldn’t have been enough time.  This will be the first of several posts and photos of my 4...

Goodbye 2016 – My end of year review.

Goodbye 2016.  2016 is one year that I am glad is over.  There were some highs and a whole lot of lows. I use to believe that how you start the first day of the year is a sign of how the rest of the year will go.  The first day of 2016 I was sick from treatment, but I was with someone I cared about, and I felt optimistic about the future.  It wasn’t a good sign...

Today is My Cancerversary!

Today is my Cancerversary.  I can’t believe it’s been a year already.  November 4, 2015, was the day I got the call. I can still hear the doctor’s voice telling me I have breast cancer.  I don’t remember much after that.  I was at work, and she asked was it the good time to talk.  Of course, it wasn’t a good time, but I had to know.. The...

What I did during my 14 hour London Layover

It took me a decade to go back to London.  Not because I didn’t want to.  Life happened, and my plans changed.  Unfortunately, I was only there for the day on my way to Bangkok.  I left Friday, August 7, 2015, at 6:20 pm and arrived in London at 8:05 am on Saturday.  My next flight didn’t leave London at 10:05 pm on Saturday.  My total travel time to...

Highlights from my trip to Rome Italy

Highlights from my trip to Rome Italy I instantly feel in love with Rome.  I love the streets.  I loved the food.  I loved the history.  I thought to myself; I could live here.  So many of the streets remind me of being back in New York.  I can’t believe I only had five days.  I didn’t go to any other city in Italy.  Just Rome. And I’m glad I...

Eight of My Favorite Travel Quotes

Eight of My Favorite Travel Quotes   I love Pinterest.  It allows me to do trip planning, collect recipes, save links to dream destinations and organize different ideas.  If your like me, before I discovered the online bulletin board I would bookmark all the websites I wanted to keep and scribble things in notebooks.  I still do some of that but when I see a...

Seattle Wishing Chair – Do Wishes Come True?

Seattle Wishing Chair – Do Wishes Come True? On my first day in Seattle, I took an Argosy 3 hour cruise on the Puget Sound.  I was able to see the city and get suggestions of things to do.  Now everybody knows about the views on top of the Space Needle, but the guide suggested to go to the observation deck of the Smith Tower.    Not only is this building known...

Trip to Maui Hawaii 2005

Trip to Maui, Hawaii October 29, 2005 thru November 6, 2005   I had never traveled so much for pleasure in one year.  In April 2005 I got my first passport and my first stamp in London.  Then in September flew off to Paris, my dream destination.  Then 2 weeks later I’m back on the plane to Hawaii.  This was a dream.  People often wonder where I get the...

Dreaming of Paris

Trip October 20, 2005, thru October 25, 2005   If you asked me as a teenager what country I dreamed of visiting it would have been Paris.  I was in love with Paris so much that I took two years of French in high school.  Now how much I remembered is another thing.  Learning the language is not as easy as I thought it would be.  I thought my love for the country...

On my own in Seattle

Trip June 5, 2013 – June 12, 2013 Seattle was my first solo trip that I planned from start to finish.  This was going to be my test trip.  I wanted to see if I could travel alone.  Although I traveled to London and Paris on the plane alone and saw some of the sights by myself, I still relied on my friend for certain things.  Now I did save money by staying in...
