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's Markets in the Gothic Area

Hey everyone!

Sometimes I wonder which pictures I should write about. I have so many fabulous places to blog about. Some of the blogs may likely affect a person's view on whether to visit a place or buy a product or have the same feelings on a service.

Today, I went to my photo gallery to choose what to write about.  I decided to write about the Markets in Barcelona.  They were really different and awesome!  Barcelona knows how to show off a great Market.

Some of the articles in the Market shook me up a little.  I couldn't look at the little pigs on display or the hanging dead animals. However, they did have awesome fruits, veggies and other good food.  We came across a display of kitchen ware and we purchased a pizza cutter.  It was a long orange knife like item with jagged edges.  It still works great today!

There were other specialty stores around the Market off the La Ramblas, scene below.  It was a very big market.  We strolled around the market looking at all the different items for sale from food, to fruit, kitchen goods, meat, and so much more!  I have never seen markets like these.  The biggest one is immediately following my writing and the smaller market was down from our Hotel 1898 and in back of buildings.  The little narrow streets still amaze me! I love so much.

As we strolled around the massive Market, Layla was taking pictures of the various foods and items.  We were careful to ensure Rialey stayed close by us.  We didn't want to lose him in the massive place.

We don't have anything like this at home and we really enjoyed viewing the wonders of Barcelona's Markets.  I would recommend going to one on your next visit.
Thanks folks, hope you enjoy the pictures.!

Our first look at the Market

Fresh food waiting to be picked!

The colours were captivating!

Everything you could ask for.

Lots to choose from.

Looking at all the food made us very hungry.

This little street led us to another Market on the other side of the La Ramblas.

This was a much smaller Market but lots to choose from.
