    Multigenerational Ski Vacation

    $0.00

    Our family has been traveling together during the winter ski season for the past twenty-five years.  Yes, every year we look forward to leaving the snow and cold at home to vacation at 8,000 feet above sea level in the snow and cold of the Rocky Mountains.  Of course, now, we are three generations…from ages 4 to 66…who, for a week, live together under one roof and share some fun that is ripe with laughter, camaraderie, and bravado.  As you can imagine, the planning and preparations start several months before that first burst of chilly air comes.

    Volunteer for an Adventure!

    $0.00

    If you want to experience a life-changing adventure, I highly recommend you combine travel with volunteerism! It’s one of the best things I’ve ever done! I’ve traveled to many beautiful, historic, and tourist friendly places, but volunteering gave me a deeper, richer, and more rewarding experience. It’s a great way to be completely immersed in a new culture, visit places you’ve never have been before, give yourself a new perspective on your life back at home, and have the added feel-good bonus of feeding your soul while helping those in need.

    Japanese Ukiyo-e, which translates to “pictures of the floating world,” is a genre of art that flourished in Japan from the 17th through 19th centuries. Thanks especially to the advancement of woodblock printing, Japanese artists such as: Toyokuni Utagawa 1769-1825 and his disciples Kunisada Utagawa and Kuniyoshi Utagawa, Kitagawa Utamaro 1750-1806, Ando Hiroshige 1797-1858, and Hokusai Katsushika 1760-1849, became famous both in Japan and abroad. They heavily influenced the Impressionist and Post-Impressionist artists of France and America, with their expressive curves, bold use of colors, and liberal designs.  Ukiyo-e subjects included: female beauties, kabuki actors, sumo wrestlers, historic scenes, folk tales, travel scenes and landscapes, flora and fauna, and erotic.

  16. 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.

Well, that is all well and good, we had our time to party, but we still want to experience Spring Break, just perhaps not in the same way we did in our twenties. Winter has had its way with us, so we long for some sun and fun, but don’t necessarily want to be where the “kids” are. Well, I have just the spot for you!
