    Day Trip To Montserrat

    For almost a thousand years believers have made pilgrimages to see the Black Madonna of Montserrat.  For most of those years the pilgrimage involved days, weeks or even months of walking up into the serrated mountains about 35 miles northwest of Barcelona.  Once there the pilgrims would stand in long lines for a glimpse of […]

    Koalas, Kangaroos and More! A Visit To Featherdale Wildlife Park

    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 […]

    8 Tips For Frugal Cruisers

    We love to cruise and since we’ve retired we cruise a lot; having cruised over 66 days since January 2012. We pride ourselves in being frugal cruisers and many of our friends have asked how we do it. We love to share our tips with them and we thought some of you might be interested […]

    12 Tips for Organizing Multiple Trips

    This is a guest post written by Mona.  Her first post was on organizing clothes and how to pack.  This post is how to organize travel plans and documents.   I’m not saying she’s OCD but she’s certainly organized! When traveling it is important to stay organized. This is especially true if it requires airline […]
  • Kangaroo Quest!

    Kangaroo Quest!

    One of the primary objectives of our visit to Australia was to see kangaroos in the wild.  However, it didn’t look like that would be possible since we would be in Australia for just a week and since we were based in downtown Sydney.  All that changed when we found Claire Robinson’s post on her ZigZagOnEarth blog […]

    7 Reasons We Fell In Love With Sydney!

    Recently, we spent a week in Sydney, Australia.  Of course, we did a lot of reading about Sydney and Australia, but we really didn’t know what to expect.  Our visit began with a late-night arrival at the airport and then a taxi ride to our hotel: the Sydney Harbour Marriott Hotel at Circular Quay.  From the […]
  • Istanbul


    The year was 2011 and we had just had an incredible week in Greece.  Next on our itinerary was a week in Istanbul, Turkey.  We really weren’t sure what to expect as we had never spent much time in a Moslem country other than a day in Tangiers, Morocco.  Would we feel out of place? […]
