My many adventures

Hi Folks, I want to dedicate this first part to all the Houston people and now the Florida folks who were and are in the path of dangerous hurricanes. I pray for you, your family and your pets to get through this terrible time in your life. Some countries all around the world are facing flooding, mud slides and war, please send help, relief and prayers their way.

I survived 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 still want to visit.

I've been to Scotland, England, Vancouver, Victoria BC, an Alaskan cruise, Yukon, Alaska (Ketchikan, Juneau, Skagway), a fab Mediterranean cruise which took us to Barcelona, the Vatican & Rome, the island of Crete, Izmir & Sulcuk, Ephesus 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...

BLOG POST OF THE MONTH: September 7, 2017

Hi Folks! My daughter and her new husband have been married one year. WOW that went fast. Was invited to Toronto in July to receive an Honorary Membership award from my union PSAC/USGE. They even brought my grandson up with me. We visited Niagara Falls, CN Tower and went to Medieval Knights dinner theatre. We had such a fabulous time!

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 just love summer! I hope the winter will be gentle to us.

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.

My granddaughter Layla moved back in so now the family is together again for a while. She is a musician and is going to Community College for a Certificate in Music Finance. She also wants to cook for a living because she just loves food and boy can she cook. I wanted to help her to go to Culinary School but we will have to wait to see when she finally makes up her mind.

My little guy Rialey is now 14 and is 6'1 1/2 ". He is so thoughtful of me and helps me a lot.

I really wanted to travel this year but since retirement, the money is too tight. I'll have to save up but I have all those beautiful memories to keep me smiling for now. Thankfully I have posted most here on my blod.

Take care my blogger friends.

Thanks friends,

Catalonia National Art Museum area pics, Barcelona

When in Barcelona, on our last day, we traveled on the Hop on Hop Off Bus and it is worth it.  So much cheaper and the tour takes in lots of places to see.  When you see something or want to go somewhere, you just hop off and when you're ready, you hop back on when another bus comes along.

We toured the Gothic area we were staying in.  We went up to the Catalonia National Art Museum which was unfortunately closed, but we took great pics of the scenery.  It was breathtaking!  It was during this ride that we also discovered the sky ride up the mountain.  We should have done it earlier in our stay, but that will have to be done on another visit to Barcelona.  We also didn't get to go to the beach.  I didn't realize how close we were.

So folks, that shows you how NOT to plan your trip.  It is really best to do lots of research on what to see and how to see it before you go on your trip.  Watch out for thieves, they work in groups.  Keep valuables hidden or in the hotel safe.  Remember to keep your kids close.  Don't trust anyone.  One woman on our cruise lost all her luggage, documents and passport.  She fly to Rome to meet our ship and had to apply for a new passport.  What a mess that was.  Sorry for so many pictures, but the view from the Museum was astounding! SO BEAUTIFUL!  Barcelona has so many things to do and to see. I wish we had more time to see a lot more but next time we will.  Sorry I can fix the side pictures, perhaps your computer can.

I hope you enjoy these pictures, as I have lots more.  Thanks for sharing!!
