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 110 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.

 October 31st - November 5th.

1st time to Tunisia. Very strange as it seems I am the only tourist here. I visited the Tourist Center but they only speak French and there are NO tours available online to visit the sites I had planned on visiting my 6 days here. I visited the Medina and will try and just enjoy and observe the Culture. Decided to fly home early as it seems  Morocco is also in a "tourist lull". Missing GRANDS is also a factor.


 October 27-31st.

Flight from Naples to Malta for my 1st ever visit.

ITALY (October 14-27th)

 Makeup tour in Italy that was canceled in 2020. (2) nights in Venice, (4) nights in Florence, (3) nights in Rome and a final (3) nights in Sorrento on Amalfi Coast. Temps were pleasant and though there was daily concern of rain, it never materialized.


 October 5-14, 2021

After the previous tour I stayed in Ireland to give my brother, Morgan, and his wife,  Tracey, a brief tour. They stayed 7 nights and we visited Galway, Killarney and Dublin. I leave for Venice on the 14th to meet my final tour of the year.


 October 3-5, 2021

Last 2 days with the Group seeing a few local sights but highlight was revisiting the small coastal village of Howth, only 40 minutes away by train.

IRELAND, Killarney

 September 29th - October 3rd, 2021

After a great 3 days in beautiful Galway visiting the Cliffs of Moher,  Connemara and eating amazing food we took the train to Killarney, my favorite. Killarney is a fairly small town with beautifully colored shops and when you leave the City Limits you go into Killarney National Park with its beautiful lakes, mountains, Torc Waterfall, Muckross House and Ross Castle, to name a few. We also toured the "Ring of Kerry", a bus tour around the coast of the peninsula. 


 September 16-19, 2021

Group landed in Dublin and we traveled 3 hours to Galway. Few pints and Irish food and sleep and GREAT DAY at CLIFFS OF MOHER.  Last 2 days has been roller coaster of sun and rain but not enough rain to dampen anyone's excitement.

After returning we walked along Ireland's shortest River, the Corrib, which is 3 km or almost 2 miles long. Then we visited the Galway Cathedral.

Few more "non rainbow" pics.

GREECE, Athens

 September 21-24, 2021

After 6 hour ferry ride from Naxos we are in Athens for GROUP'S final 3 nights. Unfortunately I have expiring Credit Vouchers to use on just the 3 of us instead of 7 people as planned.  Is what it is. Highlight is always the Acropolis and Dinner in the Sky but Dinner in Sky ended its season 2 days before we arrived.  😥

I visited the Acropolis today for the 1st time in years. Truly Amazing.  Not sure when I will visit Greece again. Don't plan a solo trip in forseeable future so most likely a GROUP REQUEST OR FAMILY TRIP.
