A Tidbit: Alaskan Reflections

  This week’s WordPress Photo Challenge of Reflecting put me in mind of a charming Alaskan cruise the folks and I took in 2010!  As we were making our way back to Vancouver after a week of stunning views of wilderness, waterways and wildlife, a clear day afforded these blurred reflections of the coastlines we were gliding […]

A Tidbit: Joshua Tree

Accepting the WordPress weekly photo challenge for the first time and this week’s theme is Earth!  Recently drove through and only scratched the surface of California’s Joshua Tree National Park.  Getting to experience its unspoiled landscape (which has only a few amenities/compromises here and there) was absolutely breathtaking!  It was also relieving to see that, while we […]

The Night Before Christmas Bit

‘Twas the night before Christmas when all through my place (One bedroom apartment – a cute little space), Not a creature was stirring – good thing in my rental; Cuz if I had a mouse?  I’d go totally mental! Despite all the quiet, sleep still was in vain, For something annoying kept nagging my brain! […]

The “Doin’ the Ruins” Bit

“Doin’ the ruins.” That’s what Dad called the trips he and Mum took around the Mediterranean.  And twice I got to along to see firsthand (among many other amazing things) just how far the vast arm of Ancient Rome used to reach – including to a once posh neighborhood on the island of Cyprus.  It […]

A Tidbit

Greetings!  My next post will mainly be about my visit to this island!  Legend has it that if you swim three times around one of these rocks off its coast, you’ll find true love – guess I need to go back and give that a try!  Know which island it is?

The Fluid State of Grace Bit

Over several roamings around Alberta, Canada, I’ve been thoroughly charmed by the spectacular scenery – especially by the lakes and rivers!  And through visits in different seasons, I’ve gotten to enjoy them in a variety of states (well, provinces, technically).  There’s so much geologic beauty there to take in and learn about!  While in the […]

The “Into Each Life” Bit

So Mr. Longfellow pretty much called it – we all get rained on now and then.  And when bad weather happens on a sightseeing trip, it can actually add to the atmosphere of a place.  It can heighten the romance.  Or deepen the drama.  Or – who am I kidding?  It can also be a total […]

THE ICE BUCKET LIST BIT

Never thought I’d get to say something this obnoxious – but among a lifetime’s worth of travel gifts from Mum and Dad are not one but two Mediterranean cruises!  I knew these excursions couldn’t help but be full of priceless moments.  What I didn’t figure on was how many would simply come from drinking in the wide […]

A TIDBIT

Caught this from our “stateroom veranda” on a cruise a few years back.  One of those times where you figure life can’t get any more magical – and then it just up and does!  Like Bogart will always have Paris, I’ll get to hold onto amazing moments like these!
