Welcome to my new Blog. I decided to create a Blog where I can write about things as they pop into my head on any subject. Some may be long, some may be short, kind of like a diary, or journal. Isn’t that kind of what a Blog is anyway? I realized I had not been writing anything in my old blog for several months now because well, I didn’t really like how it was laid out – yes that would be my fault. I also realized that most of my posts were very lengthy. I am not sure how much that will change as it has always been my downfall…
I like the idea of a blog, but I am much more adept at a website and the structure of a website to be honest. I used to design websites, writing the code longhand in a text editor, having had a total of 8 sites between my own and various Theatre companies, but that was a few years ago. Technology has changed and as we all know, changes constantly. Blogging seems to be the ‘it thing’ these days but I find myself still fumbling along so I ask that you bear with me. You might even find that you visit this blog one day, and a week later, it looks entirely different – LOL.
My passion? Travel. Were I independently wealthy, I would spend all of my time travelling. I travel solo most of the time. I like it like that most of the time. However, lately I have been more inclined to wish I had a travel partner. My goal is to travel as a local, not as a tourist. So much so that when I am in Boston? I find myself constantly referring to those, ‘darn tourists!’ ha ha
I have driven across the Untied States to both the Atlantic and Pacific Coasts,to Canada, to Florida and just about everywhere in between. I’ve driven for 36 hours in one stretch; alone, across lone, very desolate stretches of roads in the middle of nowhere with nothing but tumbleweeds. Hello Wyoming!!! I have come face to face with White Line Fever. It ain’t fun let me tell you!
Italy….. you will see much written about Italy here. I am convinced that I have Italian blood flowing through my veins despite being German/Irish. I finally made my first trip in 2014 and cannot wait to return.
Cooking.. love to cook. I also love to eat. I find myself eating things that I never would have dreamed of eating when I am on vacation. I make a point of trying something new on each trip. After all, part of experiencing what a city/culture is all about is through their food.
The Sea. I need to be near the sea. I have to visit the sea any chance I get. I don’t feel healthy unless I have had my fix of being near the sea. Did I mention that I love the sea?
Writing, of any kind – I love to write! this should come as no surprise by now with the copious amounts of verbiage on this Blog 🙂 My mom said as soon as I was able to hold a pencil, I was “writing” on any piece of paper I could get a hold of.
To that end, I begin anew. I hope that you will find something that peaks your interest on these pages and follow along. I really hope that you will comment on things too. Good or bad, I welcome it all.
Life is short. Sit back, relax and enjoy the ride!
