A Great Day in Washington D.C.

March 3, 2020 We saw so many amazing things today. We went to the Lincoln Memorial, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial ... let’s just say we saw a lot of memorials before going to Arlington National Cemetery. My group had a wreath laying at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and then we got access to... Continue Reading →

Back to Work – New York City

February 29, 2020 Almost a week since returning from my Westerdam adventure, and it is Back To Work! Reflection inside the Vessel in Hudson Yards The day after I returned home I received several phone calls from the Center for Disease Control, Virginia Department of Health, and the Fairfax County Department of Health. They knew... Continue Reading →

UK – Day 9 of 37

Thursday, October 31, 2019 I thought I was going to kill us both at least 4 times today. These are NOT streets, lanes or anything other than something a man on a horse can drive down. Certainly NOT a sprinter van! A fucking mobile home was coming towards us so I had no choice but... Continue Reading →

UK – Day 8 of 37

Wednesday, October 30, 2019 Ok, so sleeping in a Campervan, as wonderful as Bonny is, can be a little disconcerting. Strange noises outside: is someone going to steal the car with us inside snoozing? Today's adventures: Long Man of Wilmington, Arundel Castle and gardens (AMAZING!), Arundel Cathedral, and Petworth House and Park. Town of Arundel... Continue Reading →

UK – Day 7 of 37

UK – Day 6 of 37

Monday, October 28, 2019 SO many things we saw today! We had to pick up our Campervan, Bonny, today at 2pm, so we had to high-tail it over to the last few spots in London before hitting the road. The Horse Guards, the Horse Guards Parade, the Banqueting House, Buckingham Palace, Bonny the Van, driving... Continue Reading →

UK – Day 4 of 37 (London)

Saturday, October 26, 2019 The Queen Victoria exhibit at Kensington Palace was incredible! Tea in the gardens, then Notting Hill, Harry Potter gawking at King's Cross Station, then a long ass walk in the rain along the Thames bank. St. Pancras International Winchester Palace The Globe Theatre

UK – Day 3 of 37 (Still London)

Friday, October 25, 2019 Saint Paul's Cathedral, 7 miles of walking, a few bridges, the Gherkin, many underground and bus rides, The Shard, the Queens Mews at Buckingham Palace (really freakin' awesome!) coffee, more coffee, and then some coffee. Feet are very angry. The Gherkin Buckingham Palace Gates Thames River and The Shard

UK – Day 1 of 37 (London)

Wednesday, October 23, 2019 Jet Lag: the struggle is real. 3 flights: OGG-LAX-IAD-LHR. 7,232 miles. The Plan: several nights in a super tiny London hotel room so we can conquer the city, and then we pick up Bonny, our Quirky Campervan, to tackle the whole of the United Kingdom in a little over a month....

Maui, Hawaii

Hiking, snorkeling, sleeping, swimming, reading, sunning, burning, aloe-ing, driving, more hiking, sunrise at 10,000 feet, sunsets at zero feet, relaxing, cooking, drinking, and more sleeping. Amazing 10 days.

Reykjavik, Iceland

September 29, 2019 Again, this country is just exquisite. Spending time here is just so relaxing. The people are so kind, helpful, and just gorgeous!

Monument Valley

July 12, 2019 The Navajo Nation is nearly the size of West Virginia, 27,000 sq. miles. It occupies pieces of 4 states and has a population of almost 375,000. Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park, in southern Utah, is where I took these photos. It is quite the drive to get here but it is well... Continue Reading →

A Canyon SO Grand

July 10, 2019 Breathtaking. Every time I'm here I noticed something different. The sky has different clouds, or none at all. The 50 Shades of Red radiating from the rocks change by the minute with the passing sun. The sound of the trees being lightly jostled as the storm moves in. Or, more likely, it... Continue Reading →
