  • From the moment I know the trip has been planned, my mind anticipates the relaxation, and when I see the low, aquamarine median wall out of the car window on U.S. 1, I know I’m close.

  • On April 15, 2012 I visited the Fakahatchee Strand Preserve in beautiful Naples, Florida. Some people would consider this place a big swamp, but no not me! Personally, this preserve was beautiful and majestic! Enchanting and mysterious, and thats coming from someone who isn't really an outdoors...

  • The anticipation of finally arriving at your vacation spot seems to grow as the month, week, day, hour, minute & second near. I won't forget the way the way I felt and the excitement that seemed to be racing through my body on our final train ride to our destination. Vernazza, Italy. I didn't...
