The November Rambling Bit

Lately, I’ve been gobbling up a collection of recorded Rick Steves travel shows like I’ll soon be gobbling Thanksgiving dinner!   Maybe it’s because even though this time of year I tend to dig in and stay close to home and loved ones, I still have this insatiable hunger for travel!   A keen observation […]

The Sporting Extremes Bit

“Sporting Extremes”?  Nope.  Not talking today about extreme sports like BASE Jumping or Extreme Pogo (which is a thing!).  As I joyfully settle in for another NHL hockey and college football season (the best time of year in my opinion), I’m thinking more of the extremes to which we fans go – or find ourselves […]

The Journeys with Shakespeare Bit

Good morrow to ye!   I’m still feeling slightly Elizabethan-y after a pleasant rendezvous last weekend with a couple friends – and with my all time favorite playwright!

The Bit in “Plane” View

I just love a good view – from the higher up the better! Earlier this year when I flew from LA to New York, I took advantage of the opportunity to grab a few high elevation shots along the way! Afterwards, I was inspired to take a stroll through my photo collection in search of […]

The Travels With My Dad Bit

Yup – summertime is here!  Time for barbecues, beach days, and from the days of my youth, time for hitting the road!  I devoted my last post to trips I took with dear Mummy, so I thought it only fair to shift my focus for Father’s Day month to travels with my dad!   Of course, […]

The Travels With My Mum Bit

Springtime greetings!  For the month of May – Mother’s Day month! – I’ve been sifting through photos and memories from amazing trips I’ve shared with my mother over the years!  It got me quizzing Mum about whether as a kid growing up in the Midwest, she ever imagined she’d travel to places like Australia, Greece […]
