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,

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!!
