High on Life, high on love, high on The Highline walk and High in rooftop bars Twenty-five years ago (March 26, 1994) we were married barefoot on a glistening white sandy beach in Barbados listening to the intoxicating roar of the ocean waves surrounded by good friends and family. Banks beer and rum drinks flowed and island music played. At that time we vowed to attempt to celebrate our bigger wedding anniversaries on an island. On our 5thanniversary we went back to Barbados to celebrate, our 10thwe spent it in Fiji on Matamanoa Island, our 15thwas on Sanibel Island, Florida, we were off to explore Ireland for our 20thanniversary. We decided our 25thanniversary should be spent on one of the more famous islands in America so here we are in Manhattan. No regrets is our motto. ... read more

North America » United States » New York » Lake George March 18th 2019

Lake George has been a favorite vacation spot in our family for years. My parents have been there four times, but they say it’s a magical place regardless of how many times you visit. Before the actual vacation part started, my family and I visited Bard College for my brother college applications. As the younger sibling, I don’t really get a say when it comes to going on college tours. This time though, the weather was good, so I didn’t have much to complain about during the tour around the campus. Soon after, we were well on our way to Lake George. On the first night of our trip, a childhood dream of mine came true. I had ice cream for dinner. Nothing else; just sweet, sweet ice cream. Martha’s Dandee Creme was one of my ... read more

Nov 6, 2018 – March 9, 2019 I know it has been some time since I updated on what we have been doing since being back in the US but time seems to have been flying by. Now that our daylight is starting to get longer each day and the temperatures are rising (not on all days, but some) we are realizing that our time back here is getting shorter. This is causing us to start looking at places to go in the Mediterranean this year, check our list of things that we wanted to buy to take back to Tsamaya and prioritize what needs to get done before flying back to Tunisia. November was full of activity – We had a wonderful but short visit with friends Kay and Dan – thanks for taking the ... read more

North America » United States » New York » New York » Manhattan February 24th 2019

Over the past 15 years or so I’ve been to NYC on a good number of occasions but mostly for day trips and rarely for a weekend. My family and I have enjoyed many Broadway plays, Radio City Music Hall, the ballet, a museum or two, and some fun restaurants. One event I’ve been wishing to attend has always been just out of reach for one reason or another. That event is the “New York Times Travel Show,” and this year my wish was fulfilled! Now a fixture on New York City’s winter events calendar, each January brings the much-anticipated travel show to those of us seeking travel destinations inspiration. Staged in the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, this marked the 16th year that this 2-day event has been held. Last year's show topped 30,000 in ... read more

North America » United States » New York » Alexandria Bay February 23rd 2019

We'd been planning our trip (sort of) for months, but it still seemed that departure day came upon us suddenly. We had been shooting for Thursday Feb 14, but we got a pretty heavy snowfall on the 13th, and we needed some time to dig out. Looking at the weather forecasts for the cities along our route, the next likely day was Saturday the 16th. So Friday was spent doing the final packing, and then hooking up the rig. All went well until the light check -- no taillights on the trailer -- boo! It was by that time starting to get dark, and it was very cold, I had no heart for slithering under the truck with a volt meter to diagnose our troubles. So we decided to wait till morning to figure it out, ... read more

Given the fact the average American vacation is only 3.8 days; you want to get the most out of them. But your plans can easily backfire when you become sick, like I did when I visited New York. After talking to several friends, I found out the Big Apple is notorious for making people sick. Literally!

It looks like some of the bugs got worked out of the travelblog system. Which means it is time for me to update my blog I guess! First stop: New York City to meet with the Captain. I wanted an upgrade for the 13- hour flight and asked at check-in. No complimentary ones available because she said the flight was not very full. I asked if there was at least the middle seat was empty and she said yes, so I figured I'd rough it. Well, the flight was almost completely empty and after a bit of shuffling, I wound up with a whole row to myself! So I actually got some decent sleep by laying across the three seats and I was not the only one. I actually wound up on the same flight as ... read more

We were afraid you might be getting a little lonely and bored. We sure don’t want that. Lulu suggested compiling another blog that has just a bunch of various people and places for your perusal. Oh, lucky you! It is the giving season! I belong to several groups on Facebooks. Two I follow on a regular basis and often share my own finds. One group is called “Old Farms and Barns”. It is a wonderful group if you enjoy beautiful and unique farm and farm related pictures. My “Santa & Tractor” photo is a recent submission of mine. The tractor wasn’t my photo..but I put Santa in his place ...Go,Tractor, Go! The other group is called “Weird Second Hand Finds that just need to be shared”. I’m addicted to this group. I spend hours just looking ... read more

Yes, dear loyal followers....this blog (#474 - are you kidding me? I have to admit I must be a quite a blabbermouth) actually brings us up to date with all our doings. Whew! (I’m wiping the beads of sweat off my forehead as well as Lulu’s - she’s been so stressed out). The blog site is still not working and we don’t know who is receiving our blogs or not. Those of you who use Goggle Chrome (like us) receive the blog with a warning that says it is unsafe. Our Verizon manager reassured us that it is nothing to fear or be concerned about. If you get that message and are nervous, let me know and I’ll send it a different way to you. When I went through my “follower” list, I did delete a ... read more
