Top 5 Memorable Places I Want to Visit Again

We have been blessed, and have been able to travel quite a bit. Not as much as we would like, but definitely more than a lot of people I know. No matter where we go, or how long we are there, it never seems to be enough time. I always leave sad and wanting more time to explore and learn to appreciate what the country, city or area has to offer. Sadly a week, or even two weeks is not enough. While we have traveled a lot, there have been a few places that grabbed me, and I find myself day-dreaming about being able to visit again one day.  Today, I want to visit these 5 cities and countries again.  There is so much more to see and do  🙂  Continue reading Top 5 Memorable Places I Want to Visit Again

Our Amazing Pineapple Experience at the Dole Plantation

While we were on Oahu we decided to do another local tourist thing and we visited the Dole Plantation. It was a lot different than what I was expecting. Then again, I guess I really didn’t know what to expect. What I was expecting was the beautiful scenery around the plantation. I wasn’t disappointed.

Blogging is like a Diary for Adults

DiaryUltimate Blog Challenge Day 21 — I have always loved to write and like most little girls, it was in a pink little diary with a lock that only I had a key for. Little did it matter that my mom probably knew where the key was and would have been able to read anytime she wanted. I don’t know if she did or not, but at the time I felt safe writing down all my secrets, thoughts, dreams, frustrations, excitements, etc.  Continue reading Blogging is like a Diary for Adults

Fear of Flying? Justified or Just Plain Silly?

Fear of FlyingMany people have a fear of flying and I feel some are justified and some are just silly. There are people who are afraid of heights, claustrophobic, have panic attacks, stomach issues (or other medical issue), or merely had a traumatic issue on a previous flight which can make them nervous of flying again.  These are all understandable and legitimate reasons to have a fear of flying.  Continue reading Fear of Flying? Justified or Just Plain Silly?

Top Four Places Currently on our Bucket List

Bucket List Writing my post My Childhood Dream of Being a Flight Attendant reminded me of my bucket list I created when I was a young child. Happily I have been able to mark a few of these off my list. However, as I have gotten older and Gene and I have traveled more, it has only made my bucket list pages and pages. Seems like a never ending list, lol.  Every time we travel, we speak to someone else and learn of another place that we want to visit. Of course there are a few places which are on the top of our bucket list. I’d like to share 4 of them today, and why they are high on our list.  They are not in any particular order.  Continue reading Top Four Places Currently on our Bucket List

My Childhood Dream of Being a Flight Attendant One Day

Flight Attendant When I was little I had made a list of all the things I wanted to do by the time I was a certain age and what I wanted to be when I grew up. On the top of my list was to visit places like France, England, Greece, Germany and Italy. I thought that being a flight attendant and seeing the world had to be the best job ever! They got to see everything I wanted to see and get paid to do it. Little did I know than that most flight attendants don’t ever see much more than the airport and the hotel where they get shuttled off to for a few hours’ sleep. Continue reading My Childhood Dream of Being a Flight Attendant One Day

Ala Moana Center – Largest Open Air Center in the World
