My Solo Walk Across Cuba -Part 3 – Making Friends

The Walking Dead   I woke up still giggling at where I was and what I was doing.  I was in the love nest with me, myself and I, the three of us in a tiny town in eastern Cuba.  And last night I did something I had never done before.  Nope, not in the […]

Around the World, Making A Dream Come True

So, today we returned from the most astonishing journey of our life…a 26 day, around the world odyssey by private jet. It was a job that we were sought out to do. I hadn’t really given it much thought about how it came about until this morning.

Where in the World Are We? Mid-Year Update

Where’s Waldo… always comes to mind when I begin writing a “Where in the World are we?” post because the character Waldo is often elusive, something we often are ..often so much so that we can’t seem to find ourselves. I know I’m perpetually lost…and I love it. This is why I do recaps. It […]

Today is our anniversary, over 23 years sharing dreams, successes, sweatshirts and spit.

Hating Mondays ~ What a Bad Rap

the adventure couple

  I feel Mondays get a bad rap. Poor Monday. The word itself, Monday, has come to mean more than just a day of the week, it’s become synonymous with something we dread, shun and despise. Even if it’s not Monday but it’s the beginning of a workweek, we hear, “Ugghh, It’s my Monday”. Monday […]

My First Time…….Underwater

I was messaging with a friend of mine after my last post went up (5 Responsibilities of a Certified Diver). He told me he was going to recommend my blog to his new Open Water class tonight. So we started talking about how cool it was to be an instructor and watch students take their […]

Five Responsibilities of a Certified Scuba Diver

certified diver responsibility

  The issue of responsibility has certainly been my kick lately and I’m really not sure what brought it up, probably listening to people shirk responsibility in everything. No longer is a traveler responsible for anything that happens when they travel. Blame it on the travel agent. No longer is a parent responsible for his […]

Raja Ampat, Indonesia ~ Perhaps the World’s Best Diving

“A truly fantastic diving experience . I have never been anywhere else that rivals the health of these reefs and the amazing diversity of marine life on every dive. It is a bit of a haul to get to Papua but it is more than worth the effort and a photographers dream. As always all […]
