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,

Barcelona the Amazing!

Our 3 nights, 4 days in Barcelona were wonderful!  It is an amazing city, with culture, history, arts, beauty and distinction.  The picture below was taken almost outside our hotel Hotel 1898 on the La Rambas.  it is a busy street with lots of places to buy gifts and things.  It was 3 different "acts" by incredible artist and if you places a coin (or more) in their pot, they did their stunt for you.  Rialey, the little guy was so taken with them.  Layla enjoyed them as well.  It was an amazing city to vacation in.  I highly recommend taking the hop on hop off buses.  They can take you to so many places and you just hop off and do your thing, then hop on the next bus when you're ready.  The buses run about every half hour.  We should have done this before the last day, but we enjoy what we did anyway.  Enjoy the pictures.  Some I remember, others I don't remember what I took.

These are people in here and they won't move unless someone puts cash in their box

This was at the square where you get the hop on hop off buses

Kids really liked the Hard Rock Cafe, we ate lunch and purchased some gifts

The circles are some of the Christmas decorations
