Hiking in the snow? Count me in! Panoramaweg here we come!

Hiking in the snow? Well if you have not figured it out yet from my last post, I am not the “hiker” that some people are, but I am slow and steady.  I will get to my destination, it just takes me a bit longer.  Whitney, on the other hand, is in fine physical form […]

Medieval Wall in Pisa

Who knew?  I mean when we were looking up stuff to do, the regular tourist stuff, this super cool medieval wall just did not hit the radar.  We saw it.  While up on the leaning tower of Pisa, we saw it.  Just kind of looked like an old wall at first ending off to our […]
