About Me

My Photo
After getting my first passport in 2006 and traveling to climb Kilimanjaro in Tanzania my life changed. I began the process of getting rid of all my possessions and traveling the world. Traveling to over 85 countries and all 7 continents, hostels have been my home. This "new life" has taught me what is important and it was NOT accumulating money or possessions. Traveling is the best education. I hope my blog will encourage others to travel. My World Tattoo was a way for me to express my PASSION FOR TRAVEL.

Travel Day.


Leaving Marrakesh, Morocco after 5 interesting days. My flight doe not leave until almost midnight so it will be a long day and long night as I have a 4 hr. layover in Barcelona and arrive in Venice, Italy at 8:30 am on the 5th. Then only 5.5 hours until I can check into the hostel. Lol  Ironically, this is more routine than unusual as it is whathappens when traveling ona shoestring budget. Excited about having anew group coming to Italy. Expecting some great times, beautiful sights, great food and drink and little bit of the unknown. Time for a NEW adventure.

Taking in the sights and cultural explosion that is Morocco.

Caminito Del Rey (El Chorro, Spain)

9-28-15 and 9/29/15

Caught the train from Seville to El Chorro and was told by hotel that there were no buses but taxis to take me the 10 kilometers (6.2 miles) up the mountain to the hotel. NO TAXIS, so had to walk it. But actually enjoyed the 2 hour stroll. Got up the next day and walked to the entrance of the Caminito Del Rey which had a $5 million dollar facelift to improve its safety. I was told it would take 2-3 hours one way. Well ii did the hike both ways in 45 minutes each. I can see going much slower if there is a fear of heights. Now 5 hour wait at train station and then 11 hour wait at Seville airport for my 6 am flight to Madrid. Then a connecting flight at noon to Marrakech, Morocco.  Not for everyone but I like it.
