Some Down Time in Hong Kong

It was time for me to adventure out in my own since Leslie had to go to work. I decided to take the day and head to Kowloon and conquer the Ladies Market. I had a friend that requested a few items and I took my negotiation skills and pictures to the market to find…

It Seemed Like a Good Idea…

I was heading to Maui and looked at a map and thought to myself, Maui is on the way to Asia, let’s find some good airfare. Good airfare was found but the route was out of hand! Note to self, check the route prior to purchasing the ticket. After a glorious 8 days in Maui…

Maui!

Where does one start after 8 days in Maui? With a story I guess. A few years ago (20) I met some amazing girls in high school. 20 years later we are still friends and decided on a girls trip to Maui. A few years ago (3) I met this girl in Rome. We became…

London for the Millionth Time

Jumping across the pond tends to be easier to do in/out of London. There are so many flights and then all of Europe is open to explore! It seems that every time I travel I meet about 4,000 new people that live in London. I had plans for a few nights but I wanted to…

Mallorca = Perfection

Many people are fully aware of the island of Ibiza and all it has to offer. For those who don’t want $30 cocktails and crazy parties, there are the islands of Mallorca and Menorca that offer a calm and relaxing seaside environment. The sunsets were truly amazing and not something that should be missed. I…

The Last Bit of Barcelona

Barcelona really is one of the cities where you could spend a month in and still not experience everything. However, after a few days in the city it was time to move on to the next stop of Valencia. The downside to staying in a hotel is the lack of a kitchen or anywhere to…

Barcelona is all about Gaudi

There is no way you can visit Barcelona and not visit a few of Gaudi’s architectural wonders. I visited Casa Mila for my second time and you can see what I thought of it last time here. This time I listened to the guided tour a little bit more and just took in everything with…

My Tour of the PNW…Seattle

I have been a bit MIA lately but the travels are starting up again. Living in the United States I think I take for granted everything that is within a short flight from me or even a short drive. I took a few weeks to visit friends and family in Seattle, Fairbanks and Portland. The…

A Summary of My Mini World Tour

My last mini around the world trip was pretty random.¬†82 days. 27 cities. 9 countries. 15 flights. 10 different airlines. 12 books. 5 buses. 4 ferries. 2 trains. 1 Blabla! I am exhausted just thinking about it. I picked up books as I went along and left them wherever I finished them. Some I really…

Books travel just like people

When I travel I always have an actual book with me and not just a nook or a tablet. When I finish the book I leave it wherever I finished it and I leave my email address in the book with a little note. I have probably left over 50 books around the world and…
