Our 17-Mile Drive in Scenic Pebble Beach, California

17-Mile DriveWhile on one of our trips in Northern California we were lucky enough to drive the breathtaking 17-mile drive through Pebble Beach and Pacific Grove on the Monterey   Peninsula. It is absolutely beautiful and follows the Pacific coastline and passes famous golf courses, mansions and scenic attractions, including Spanish Bay Cove, the Lone Cypress, Bird Rock and the 5,300-acre Del Monte Forest of Monterey Cypress trees. Before we went I knew it was 17 miles. duh, but I didn’t know it had four primary entrances, the main highway entrance at California State Route 1, and entrances in Carmel and Pacific Grove.      Continue reading Our 17-Mile Drive in Scenic Pebble Beach, California

Robin Williams – The Man Who Gave So Much To So Many People

Robin Williams has been gone since August of 2014, but I still find it hard to believe he is gone. Every now and then I will be scrolling through on the tv remote and come across a movie or something he was in and it give me a moment of both sadness and happiness. Such an incident happened yesterday when I happened to come across and episode of Mork and Mindy. Found myself watching them rest of it laughing at the antics that was Robin Williams. Thus I decided to share a post about his and how he has touched us through the years. Continue reading Robin Williams – The Man Who Gave So Much To So Many People

Top 4 Destinations on Our 20th Anniversary List

I am having a major case of wanderlust and can’t help day dreaming about our 20th wedding anniversary next year. We have some trip planned for almost every month this year, but I can’t stop thinking about spending two weeks in Europe somewhere next May. We are going to use miles, so I can’t actually start looking until June (they start booking 11 months out). This might be part of the issue, as I keep thinking of places on our bucket list, then I read a post, or blog about another amazing place, and now it’s in the mix, lol. But we have narrowed it down to the top 4 places that are on the top of our list. Continue reading Top 4 Destinations on Our 20th Anniversary List

Travel Vaccinations – Worth the Hassle and Expense?

I am looking forward to visiting Thailand and a few others places in Southeast Asia one day, and it made me think about what shots if any are suggested or required before visiting. After doing some research it looks like I am good to go, with a few suggestions.  There are a lot of questions about vaccinations, however this doesn’t only apply to travel. We have friends who had never vaccinated their child who was turning 5 and getting ready to go to school. I don’t know how it all worked out, as they moved out of state. However I don’t think people are able to get around the “medical reasons” or religious reasons anymore. I may be wrong, but it won’t work when trying to travel. Thus I wanted to share this post about getting or not getting vaccinated before traveling to certain countries. Continue reading Travel Vaccinations – Worth the Hassle and Expense?

Hello Spring and the April Ultimate Blog Challenge

April Hope you are enjoying spring so far. I like Fall the best, but spring is a close second 🙂   Earlier this year I took part in the January Blog Challenge and had a good time. For those of you who are not familiar with the Ultimate Blog Challenge (UBC), it is a virtual event for bloggers held every quarter with a goal for bloggers to write a new blog post every day during the challenge month.  I posted 28 days out of 31 as I was still on vacation until the 3rd. However I made it the rest of the month, and felt very good. Thus I have decided to do the April Ultimate Blog Challenge. Thus I will be sharing a post every day for the next 30 days! It seems like a lot, but I know I can do it if I stay focused and set goals. Continue reading Hello Spring and the April Ultimate Blog Challenge

Wonderful Indoor Farmers Market at Hyatt Regency, Waikiki

Farmers Market One of the cool things about being at the Hyatt Regency in Waikiki is being able to enjoy the Farmers Market they hold every Tuesday and Thursday nights from 4-8 pm. We hit it right after watching the amazing Hula Show on Kuhio Beach. We should have gone earlier, as we only had an hour after the show. It still worked out well though. I was happy that they not only have great food, they also have craft tables. Continue reading Wonderful Indoor Farmers Market at Hyatt Regency, Waikiki

Breathtaking Red Sandstone Formations in Sedona, AZ

Sedona To say Sedona is beautiful or gorgeous is a huge understatement. It has to be one of the most exquisite places in the southwest. It’s something you have to see for yourself. The locals say there is magic in the handsome red-rocks, and I believe them. I was definitely smitten from the first time I saw them. We got there at night, so we didn’t get to see them until we woke up. What a site to wake up to. I thought I had died and gone to heaven when I opened the room blinds.  We stayed at the Sedona Summit, which was part of our time share we had at the time. It is a quiet resort and everyone was very friendly. Unfortunately we only had two days there.  Continue reading Breathtaking Red Sandstone Formations in Sedona, AZ

DIA Has the Fastest Wi-Fi of all U.S. Airports

DIA - Faster Wi-FiWe are going to be flying a lot this year and it made me start thinking about all the time sitting in airports, and what we do with that time. Like most people we rely on the airports Wi-Fi and jump our laptop, phone or tablet to check email, update our Facebook status, Twitter feeds, or just web surf. It is a great way to spend some of the annoying and wasted time because of security.  Continue reading DIA Has the Fastest Wi-Fi of all U.S. Airports
