Mykonos, Greece. My New Home…..For Now

Finally, I am on the island! And now that I am here, I think I will stay……5 weeks! Mykonos is my last stop on the year-long tour around the world and I want to stay put. Traveling can be very exhausting, especially when you are alone and managing all of the luggage, the bookings, the […]

Athens, Greece and the Week of Anti-Austerity

I took the ferry ride from Sardinia to the Civitavecchia port, caught the first train into Rome and headed to the airport to board my flight to Greece. I will be entering my 20th country in the past 11 months and one I have only dreamed about. I didn’t know much about Athens or anything about […]

Sardinia, Italy

I made a quick stop in Sardinia since I had to travel from Barcelona over to Rome to catch my flight to Athens where I would be meeting up with more friends from the US. Lucky me, a friend I knew from California was there vacationing with her family. Sardinia is beautiful. I was only […]

Barcelona, Spain

It was all about Gaudi for me in Barcelona. From the first building I saw of his, I was hooked and began to search for more of his creations. What an amazing creator and innovator. I’ve never been more impressed with architecture and creation then when in Barcelona. Barcelona is such a special city. From […]

Villefranche and Monaco, France

We only had a short amount of time, but we made the most of it by visiting Villefranche and Monaco.   Travel Tips Villefranche-sur-Mer

Corsica, France

We were so exhausted by the time we arrived in Corsica from our speed tour of the Mediterranean, we decided to take it easy and enjoy a simple drive along the coast.     Travel Tips Corsica

Pisa and Florence, Italy

Another speed tour through two cities, Pisa and Florence, in a day. This trip is getting exhausting!

The Colosseum


Our 8 hour speed tour of Rome. We made it to the Sistine Chapel, The Trevi Fountain and the Colosseum, albeit, we were white knuckled to catch the last train back to the port. We BARELY made it! As the saying goes, if you throw a coin in the fountain, you are sure to return […]

Positano, Italy

Naples, Pompeii, Positano and Sorrento, Italy

The first of our rapid tour days. We stepped off of the boat in Naples and negotiated with the first taxi driver to give us a tour of Naples, Pompeii, Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast. The best decision we made the whole trip. If you are going on a cruise and want to hire a […]

Palermo, Sicily

Palermo, Sicily

One thing I know for sure is I have a good sense of direction. You could place me in the center of a foreign city, point me North and I will be able to find my way, wherever I need to go. I thank my Dad for this sense. I have always loved reading maps […]

10 Day Mediterranean Cruise….First Stop, Malta!

For the next 10 days, I will board a cruise ship with my Mom and my niece for a tour of the Mediterranean. It’s not my favorite way of exploring and traveling, but seems to be my Mom’s vacation of choice. I prefer to get to know each city I visit by taking my time […]

Ibiza, Spain

Ibiza, Spain

After being in Formentera for six days, I don’t know how Ibiza is going to fare. I was pretty impressed with Formentera. I had a lotted for three days and two nights in Ibiza and was graciously hosted by my new friends, the two Albertos from Milan. Ibiza is known to be a party town […]
