Follow me to the Fairy Glen on the Isle of Skye…

I have written a post on the Fairy Glen and the Fairy Pools in Skye.  I went there in May 2016 and was so lucky to have incredible weather and an incredible experience.  This time that I went, it was October of 2017, I went with my friend Paula and the weather was not spring-like …

Must love salt! Salt mines at least.

Austria When Austria is mentioned in conversation a few things come to mind.  Saltzburg, Sound of Music and Vienna.  I am generalizing, I do not mean to offend others that think of something else.  So with that being said… Obertraun and Hallstatt I had never heard of this incredible little jewel until Whitney brought it up …

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 …

Dublin Castle… Not what you think it is…

Square of Miracles – Camposanto

The Square of Miracles Back to “square” one!  No pun intended.  We started out day here at the Leaning Tower and took off on an unplanned awesome adventure.  After lunch, we weaved our way back to the Square of Miracles.  Next up, Camposanto.  Here is the website for the Square of Miracles.  https://www.opapisa.it/en/  It is also …

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 …
