    Texas Road Trip!

    We always like to travel on our birthdays and since August is my birthday month I got to choose our destination. I have many places I want to go but Texas is always calling my name. It’s not that I haven’t been to Texas; I commuted to Houston for work the four years we were […]

    Cruising the Pacific on the Carnival Legend

    We have had a long-standing goal of crossing the Atlantic via ship, but for some reason we didn’t have a similar goal for the Pacific. All that changed when we noticed that Carnival had a separate division in Australia and one of their cruise offerings was an 18 day cruise from Sydney to Honolulu visiting […]

    Sagrada Familia

    One of the highlights of Barcelona is the incredible Sagrada Familia designed by Antoni Gaudi.  Construction of this huge church began in 1882 and it’s estimated that it will be completed in 2026; the hundredth anniversary of Gaudi’s death.

    One of the highlights of a day trip we took while in Sydney was a visit to Featherdale Wildlife Park.  This is a relatively small zoo, close to Sydney and dedicated to exhibits of Australian animals…over 1700 of them in fact! The fun started as soon as we entered the park because we immediately met some […]

    Haunted Decatur!

    In our travels we have visited many haunted places, but for some reason we’ve overlooked one of the most haunted cities in the Midwest: our home city of Decatur, Illinois.  There’s a lot of information in old newspapers and local legends about Decatur’s ghosts and most of it has been studied and documented by author […]

    Luckenbach, Texas – A Texas State of Mind!

    We were on a day trip out of Austin, Texas and we had visited some wineries, spotted some longhorns and ended in Gillespie County near Fredericksburg, Texas.  We still had several hours before “bat time” in Austin so we decided that it would be fun to get “back to the basics of love” and visit […]
