Have Passport - Will Travel
Journey Through the Emerald Isle
The 'Luck of the Irish' was with us throughout our two-week trip. We were off to a good start with several months of planning and help from the Irish Cultural Center in Phoenix where I also did some basic genealogy work on my husband's maternal side.
By our standard, just about everything is more expensive in Scandinavia. For example, a woman’s haircut averaged about $75 and a glass of beer was $8.

Italy - La Dolce Vita
Whether you are drawn to Italy to experience the antiquities of Rome, the Renaissance art of Florence, the exuberance of Venice, the tranquility of the Lake Districts, or the majesty of the Dolomites, Italy's sweet life is certain to take hold of you.
Culinary Travels in Europe
The call to travel and revisit certain key cities in Europe tugged at me, especially since it was coupled with visions of French pastries, Dutch Masters, Belgian lace and chocolate, and German Wine.
Taking a French for Travelers class at a local community college proved to be very helpful. Armed with new knowledge and a guidebook, I was ready for a new adventure...
Bruges, Belgium - a delightful journey awaits you
I know that mentioning Belgium to anyone evokes visions of delicate fine lace, decadent yet delicious chocolate, delightful waffles with whipped cream had strawberries, an extensive variety of great beer, and charming cities.
Munich to Prague
Visiting fairytale castles, reaching mountain highs, strolling in the alluring Tyrolean Alps, enjoying fantastic art, music and culture, sipping unique beers and eating delicious apple strudel along the way from Munich, through Austria, into Budapest and onto Prague, made for a glorious month.
NYC on $550 a day for two
As a native New Yorker who has been a desert dweller in the Land of Arizona since 1974. I need a NYC fix every once in a while.
Spain and Portugal
It has been thirty years since my last trip to Spain, so I thought that it was about time to return. I decided to include Portugal since I had never been there.
Sicily - Study Italian
This summer I had the opportunity to study in three different cities in Sicily at three different language schools: Babilonia in Taormina; i Fiori Blu di Sicilia in Agrigento; Scuola Virgilio in Trapani.
