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,

Guest Blogger - Breaking Down the Endless Benefits of Car Rental

Breaking Down The Endless Benefits Of Car Rental

Longing for a relaxing vacation after so many weeks and months of hard work? Then you should include Perth, Australia in your travel plans. Its tranquil rivers and spacious beaches are perfect if you want to unwind and forget about work responsibilities.'

Also, if you get bored you can visit the top-notch shopping places and nightlife attractions that it boasts of. As you can see, Perth’s perfect blend of nature and sophistication can blow your stress away.

Bear in mind, however, that there are certain things that you need to consider if you want to have a blast on your vacation. One of the most important yet most neglected aspects of this matter is booking a car rental vehicle. Take note, that it is essential if you want to achieve a hassle-free and convenient getaway break. Below are some of the reasons why. 

Drive long distance without breaking the bank 

Driving long distance may mean extra expenses. This is not the case with car rental because they have several fuel-economic vehicles in their arsenal.

In fact, many of them offer cars that meet the 28 and 32 highway miles per gallon (mpg) standard. In addition to this, they also offer hybrid vehicles that are more fuel economic. With this, you’ll save money on rental and petrol expenses.

Ideal for small children.

If you’re travelling with children, you don’t have to worry about temper tantrums and meltdowns because you can opt for a minivan or SUV that has ample space for utmost convenience. 

Also, kids can easily get irritable on public transport because of the hustle and bustle of the crowd; as such, it would be best to go for a rental vehicle where they can play with their toys or have their snacks in a convenient manner. 

Avoid shabby cab taxi drivers that extortionate fares

Whether we like it or not, there are shabby cab drivers out there who are looking to rip off travellers like you. The good news is you don’t have to worry about them if you have access to a rental car. 

If you feel that you’ll have a hard time driving in Perth and you need someone to do it for you, you can always opt for the chauffeured service. Many car rental companies offer this at minimal charge.


With a Perth car rental vehicle, you don’t have to worry about the inconveniences of travelling in a foreign country because you don’t have to rely on public transport when sightseeing.

Therefore, you need to invest in this service if you want to achieve a vacation that you’ll cherish and talk about for a very long time.
