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! I have been away from posting because my 40 year old daughter finally got married Aug 27th 2016. It was tiring but the wedding was wonderful and very happy in the end. I sent them on a 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. Apparently when the drove back home to Halifax, they started arguing and it lasted all the way over four provinces. Now she feels the argument wasn't so bad. 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.

We had a fabulous summer with little rain, although the farmers and rural residents were not too happy. Some people had to pay for water since their wells went dry. This rainless weather is not something we experience so it was a little frightening.

I've been busy 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.

Well, be on the look out for my various posts. I also have a few products I want to write about as well.
Thanks friends,

Hotel 1898 Spa Pool

  This is a picture from the site of Hotel 1898 in Barcelona.  It is still hard to believe we were actually here in December 2010.  The pool spa is totally awesome!  You can see the luxury waterfall that relaxes your total body as you stand beneath the water.  We also relaxed in the pool lunge chairs right in the water. The water is soothingly warm.  The atmosphere is so relaxing, soothing and inviting!  I miss this lovely hotel, the spa and the staff and can't wait to return one day.  It is right on the La Rambla with the busy markets, shops and narrow streets.  The wonderful rooftop pool is warm and the view from the roof is incredible. Room service was excellent, including the food and prices.  We liked it much better than the actual restaurant and bar.  The room has a safe, coffee machine and the bathroom has a warming towel rack and a bade.  The little guy ask why do we have two toilets!  We laughed.  The stairwells are the most beautiful I've ever seen, designed in colours of black and white. The rooms have incredibly comfortable beds, bathrooms of marble and breathtaking balcony views.  I encourage you to visit their website and if you ever book your stay there, you could never regret it.  It is a definite for your bucket list.
