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,

Beautiful Egypt

One of my first looks at the Pyramids
We were here in Egypt, Dec 2010. The poverty was horrendous but the people are awesome. Driving in Egypt, you would have to be out of your mind, unless you're from there. We were in a four lane road going one way (yet there were 7 cars across), when this car was coming towards us, trying to drive down the street we were driving up!! I handed out many dollars to the people on the street. The people are so nice and kind. The canal was littered with garbage and people were searching through it. The riches of Egypt has not been given to its people. I love Egypt and I'll be back and maybe the next time, I won't be so afraid of riding a camel again. Enjoy the pics.

Garbage along a canal

The small Pyramids were for the wives

I love the sun setting in this picture with the Pyramid

Kids picking up sand so we could get all the Pyramids in the picture

I just love this picture!!

This was a camel ride and it looked so cool, so I took a picture.

Another one of my first looks at the Pyramids.

Looking at Cairo from the Pyramids

Egyptians offering camel rides.

The busy streets of Cairo

Lots of uses for horse and buggy.

Another fab pic of the Sphinx & Pyramid

This is what we saw when we looked out the back of the hotel
These people were living in these conditions behind a 5 star hotel.

This car was going the wrong way on a one way street, coming towards us!
