There is a big difference between traveling and vacationing as travel implies total immersion, while vacationing is more about relaxation and indulgence. I am not sure what prompted a change in us from the former to the latter, but for the past couple of years, our travels have become vacations. That is not a bad ..read more

Uncle! The universal term for surrender. Uttering that simple word means that you have had enough, done, finished, kaput. I cried ‘uncle’ a few times these past weeks and I meant it every time. Moving stinks! But, the alternative wasn’t great, so here we are again – an inflamed shoulder (Malcolm) and several aches, and ..read more

I am pre-supposing with this post that you already know whether or not you are a fan of cruising.

With our one-year apartment lease coming to a close on May 15th, we started feeling pressure in late February to make a decision about extending the current lease or moving on. We are still not ready to build our ‘forever home’, and for a variety of reasons, we have elected to move on. We devoted ..read more

Today is day seven of our ten-night Caribbean cruise with Regent, and there is actually, no place I’d rather be.
