I recently posted a blog about how we were all packed up and highly anticipating our cruise on the Sky Princess, October 20-November 3. We had planned the first 7-day Inaugural cruise and the next 7-day as well.

We had our big cruise bags stuffed with our formal wear (w...

For once in my life, I’m a little ahead of myself.

It’s a miracle, really.

We are (mostly) packed and ready for our voyage on the new Princess Cruises Sky Princess next weekend.

My schedule as a busy marriage and family therapist means that the weeks before I go on vacati...

Sometimes we get caught in reading and thinking about the same old same old when it comes to London. So many people have come and gone, and have written about it, that it's hard to find something new.

Several days have been 10 miles-plus, and I expec...

Visiting a country is, in itself, an adventure made even more so when you decide to do something you’ve never done before...like drive. Most of our previous international trips have been on cruises where ship excursions or other travel arrangements made a car unnecessa...

In 1996 I got a Master's degree. And, no, it's not the one that qualifies me to be a licensed marriage and family therapist.

This one is in history. My specialty: medieval history. My area of interest: medieval warfare. My thesis topic? “The logistics, diplomacy and mus...

One year after our initial visit to the shores of Normandy and its history, we returned, determined this time to become more familiar with the area and the impact the D-Day invasion had on our world then and our world now.

Our cruise-led tour last year was interesting,...

Apologies for not posting sooner, but it's been, well, a rather strange trip. For those of you who regularly read this blog, you know that we have had some wonderful excursion. This trip, so far, has been more misadventure than adventure.

It started with going to the...
