Moving on Up

Good morning fans.  I’m currently in the process of switching from wordpress.com to a self-hosted blog.  I’m hoping the changes will be seamless and you will enjoy my updated site.  You can see a preview of the new site in the picture.

Travel Journey of the Week: Rhine Valley

I’d like to dedicate this post to my Aunt Lori.  She is having dreams of cruising down the Rhine and taking in the German countryside.  Today we will take a journey to the river valley.  Here is how you can contribute: 1. Each Sunday, a place will be set as the theme (it could be…

Online Travel School

One of my many ambitions is to start an online travel school.  Maybe it is the geek in me, or perhaps the teacher, but how engaging would it be to take a reasonably priced class online about the sights to see in Rome, the architecture of Barcelona, or the best markets in Paris?  It would…

I came across a website yesterday that I am super excited about.  Do you ever find that you are different person when you travel?  You take more risks, you try new things, you meet new people?  Why can’t I do that at home?  I do live next to the 3rd largest city in the US… …
