    Madrid, Spain: A Step Back in Time

    $0.00

    As a young teen, I spent my first three high school years in Madrid, Spain. My father was a career USAF officer and we were stationed in Madrid.  I always dreamed as a young woman of returning, not realizing that once my sons flew away to college, I would fly away as a flight attendant for a major airline.  My first assignment as a new graduate was to Madrid! I was thrilled, not only to visit Madrid but also to Barcelona, Seville and many other Spanish cities.

    The Queen Mary 2 Voyage - Everything You Hoped for in Luxury Cruising: Part 3

    $0.00

    The everyday food onboard ship is absolutely amazing!  Kudos to the Executive Chef, his sous-Chefs, and “the lines”,  plus all the kitchen workers who so diligently produced fine food at every meal.  Breakfast is a wonderful mixture of choices – the traditional English fare, solid, well cooked and tasty (bacon being the biggest treat it seemed!).  There were the Continental breakfasts more on the French style, and then the hearty German ones laden with processed meats and cheeses.  It seemed that everyone subscribed to the English tradition of eating a hearty breakfast to set you up for the rest of the day.

    Athens, Greece: Birthplace of Democracy

    $0.00

    On a first visit to Athens, one will be surprised to find ancient relics intermixed with new construction of a cafe, hotel or boutique!  I was amazed to enjoy an early morning cappuccino alongside an ancient Roman statue! To build a city among ancient ruins reminds me of just one other city – Jerusalem.  I am amazed that city officials can keep tourists from pilferage these ancient ruins!

  12. Dive Right In: Cobalt Coast Resort & Suites - Grand Cayman Islands

    Dive Right In: Cobalt Coast Resort & Suites - Grand Cayman Islands

    $0.00

    You can thank the wind and Christopher Columbus for discovering the Cayman Islands. His ship blew off course on his final voyage to the New World and he landed on two islands filled with turtles, which he named “Las Tortugas.” The Caymans are a British Overseas Territory located south of Cuba and Northwest of Jamaica. They are known for their diving, so I decided to fill you in on a Dive Resort that, for this area, is a value. The Islands are a financial center, so this is not a bargain destination, but the Cobalt Coast Resort and Suites won’t break the bank.

This is the mantra of LEGO.  Yes, those famous LEGOs!  You probably played with them when you were a kid; then your kids played with them, and now, if you have grandchildren, they are playing with LEGOs too.  I love LEGOs. There is something so creative and personal about them. As Jorgen Vig Knundstop, Head of LEGO’s Corporate Management explained on YouTube: “There are many solutions to the same problem, and you have to imagine your own solution.”

    London’s Food, Glorious Food

    $0.00

    Remember when… English food was considered abominable? Except for we English who loved it, didn’t know better, and it wasn’t until the advent of the early Chinese and Indian cafes that we knew any other cuisine or cooking.  But over the years, especially with the EU making crossing borders easy, the wonderful influx of young chefs from France, Italy, Spain, Germany, etc., has brought fine dining to an Art form in London and beyond.  Let’s take a look at some of the venerable restaurants in London, and it’s all about adapting tried and true establishments adapting to the “latest” trends
