Let's talk about the Grand Canyon! One of my nieces recently posted a picture of her kids standing next to the edge. I have so many great memories of this national park! When I was young, my Uncle Jim and Aunt Dixie lived in the park, where he worked as a park ranger. Some of... Continue Reading →

Number 1 on my bucket list is to go on an African Safari. This would be the exploring kind, not the hunting kind. Not that I'm against responsible hunting- it's just not my thing. I'll hunt with my camera instead. Number 29 on my bucket list would be to swim with dolphins. I have heard... Continue Reading →

If you've ever met me, you'll know that I love music, especially country music. This is the genre that I was raised on, mostly. When I hear the right song, I'm reminded about growing up in southern Arizona, and I feel more at home. Bucket list item number 21 is to attend a country music... Continue Reading →

Number 71 on the bucket list is to visit Neuschwanstein Castle. According to Wikipedia- Neuschwanstein Castle is a 19th-century Romanesque Revival palace on a rugged hill above Hohenschwangau's village near Fussen in southwest Bavaria, Germany. This is also said to be the castle that inspired Disney's 'Cinderella's castle.'  This exact item was supposed to be... Continue Reading →

10 years ago this past September, I checked off number 28 on my bucket list, which is to go to Dollywood. I haven't until now, however, posted the pictures or stories from this adventure. The good news: I just came across all of the images and videos from that trip. The bad news: I can't... Continue Reading →

I'm sure that many of you have been seeing what is happening in the airline industry right now. Covid-19 has undoubtedly taken its toll. I searched for the known impact, and I found this Wikipedia entry. It is so sad to see what is happening at the moment. One way my employers are trying to... Continue Reading →

I guess I'm allowed to cross number 37 off of my bucket list. Well, technically, that is. The goal was to buy a Eurail pass, and that's one of the things that I did for this last trip. Even though I didn't actually get to use my pass (waste of money), I still purchased one.... Continue Reading →

Scotland 8: Day 24, The Conclusion

03.25.20 | Home | 23:47 I woke up after about nine hours of sleep! Nine hours isn’t usually something that my body requires, but I think lugging my backpack all around London wiped me out. I got all my things ready and checked out of the hostel. One night is not enough time to spend... Continue Reading →

Scotland 8: Day 23

03.24.20 | London, England | 20:53 When I got to Glasgow Central Station this morning, I couldn’t see my 08:00 train listed on the board. I noticed that there had been an earlier one to London that had been canceled. I admit that I was a little bit worried that all the trains may be... Continue Reading →

Scotland 8: Day 22

3.23.20 | Glasgow, Scotland | 20:53 Today was a bittersweet feeling. Sweet because it’s always nice to be in this country that I love so much. Bitter that today is my last full day in Scotland. Also, I’m having to cut my trip short. As I mentioned in an earlier post, this was only the... Continue Reading →
