Dateline September 2008 Location(s) United Kingdom – London, Brighton, Oxford What? Did you think going to Spain would stop me from taking another UK trip later the same year? No way! As usual, I don’t remember when the wheels started turning for this trip, but I have to assume Ruth Ann and I were already […]

Dateline April 2008 Location(s) Spain – Barcelona & Valencia If you have even a basic understanding of Spanish (or if you read the dateline above), you’ve already figured out that the new country I visited in 2008 was…Spain!

This blog is my way of bringing together something I love (traveling) with something I’m pretty good at (writing). I haven’t turned traveling into a full-time career (yet), but I do take at least one international trip each year, in addition to some trips around the US. I love to travel anywhere, but London (and […]
