My many adventures

Hi Folks, sorry I deleted my paragraph where I tell you all about all the places I've been to.
I'm blessed since surviving breast cancer, to travel around the world to some of the many places I've always wanted to go. There are lots more places I want to visit.
I've been to Scotland, England, Victoria BC, an Alaskan cruise, a fab Mediterranean cruise which took us to Barcelona, the Vatican & Rome, the island of Crete, Izmir & SulcukEphesus Turkey, Egypt and Malta. I have been to Las Vegas, Hollywood LA, Cabo San Lucas, Orlando, Daytona Beach, Tampa, a Disney Cruise to Bahamas and Disney's Castaway Cay island, all over Canada and Hawaii and Pearl Harbour. We can add Cozumel, Costa Maya, Mexico, Belize City and Honduras. What a fabulous way to see the world!
Take the time to do the things you want to do because life is too short and if you wait until you can afford it, you'll likely never go. So get your plans ready and pick a place and start booking your trip. It is so worth it.
Thanks for dropping by. I have lots of posts to put up so stay tuned...


Hi Folks! My daughter and her new husband went to their beautiful honeymoon to Calabogie Lodge in Ontario. The resort was all wood interior with two bedrooms and the master suite with a bed so big. Glad they enjoyed their first vacation ever! His brother loaned them his BMW which drove like a dream.

I still have a great deal of travel posts to put up. I want our vacations and travel to be shared with you all. I'm not sure of what our travel plans will be for 2017, but for 2016, I rested all the time. Retirement is so awesome!! I was able to take pictures of the summer's Totally Eclipse of the Moom, which I'll share with you here on a post. It was incredible for sure.

I had my annual cancer check up and everything was great! It makes me so happy unfortunately, my doctor had to retire due to illness and I am trying to get a family doctor. It is horrible when you don't have someone who looks after you and knows you.

So looking forward to the summer with fresh air & warm summer nights. Spring here is pretty good too.

Still trying to find my ancesters with the Foran/Forhan name. Apparently two brothers came over from Dublin, one was name Edward who had a son named Edward born in Prince Edward Island and he had a son named William who had my father. I love doing ancestry but it is very frustrating when you can get no further without the "parents" names.

I have so many posts to write about so please keep patience with me. I received a great posting from which looks to be a great animal site. Hope you enjoy it.

Thanks friends,

Gander Hotel in Gander, NL/Labrador

It is my last day at the Gander Hotel in NL.  It was a pleasant stay with very friendly staff. 

The lobby area is very nice with a welcoming living area with an electric fireplace. The business centre for guests is tucked in the corner for some privacy.  The dinning area is quite lovely but unfortunately is closed between 2 to 5 pm. The food and prices are very reasonable and the food is delicious!  The only other negative is the main doors to the hotel do not have an wheelchair access button to open the doors automatically, but the back door does.

The rooms are your normal type hotel room, but very homey and inviting and it has air conditioning.  Many front rooms have a view of the lovely Gander lake.  The mattresses are Simmons Beauty Rest and surprisingly very comfortable!  I do a lot of travel and am very fussy about my sleep and I must admit, I had a great, comfortable rest, even the pillows were good (they weren't my favourite feather pillows but still were very good to sleep on).  Some rooms have two double beds and others, like mine, had one bed with a small sofa and chair, which is what I preferred.  The TV had sufficient channels to watch.  I watched the 9/11 remembrance last night and the movie Flight 93.  It still saddens my heart to this day.

The city of Gander has a few taxis and they are very friendly.  Gander also has a memorial to the people of 9/11.  This was one of the Canadian cities that hosted people while their planes were grounded on that fateful day.  The people of Gander are very friendly.

Enjoy this post and remember to leave a comment,  Thanks a bunch!
