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 125 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.

SPAIN, Madrid

 July 30-August 7th, 2022

Trying to make plans for the 1 month I planned on hiking the Camino. Will spend 8 night chilling in Madrid. I was only here once in 2006 and it rained both days. 

Next I visit Cordoba, then Seville for my 5 EURO flight to Fes, Morocco for a week. Then Egypt for week and then meet Ireland Group before Turkey and Greece. 

SPAIN, San Sebastian

 July 27-29, 2022

After 2 days of recovering, due to the large number of pilgrims hiking the Camino and lack of accommodations I reluctantly decided to postpone completing the Camino until a more opportune time. Hikers were sleeping on beaches along the way due to fully booked accommodations. 

SPAIN, Irun to San Sebastian

 July 27-2022

Left Irun on 1st leg of Camino de Santiago Norte to San Sebastian.  It was approximately 28 km or 18 miles.which involved climbing 2 mountains. To say I was exhausted was an understatement. 

SWITZERLAND, Interlaken, Gimmelwald, Zurich

 May 31-June 8th, 2022

After end of Group trip to London, Edinburgh and Ireland I decided to visit Switzerland for 9 nights before returning to Louisiana gor time with GRANDS. I am especially excited as I was able to book the Mountain Hostel in Gimmelwald. This gives me access to great hiking and to revisit Schilthorn.

I also will spend 2 nights in Zurich before my flight.

SCOTLAND, Edinburgh

 May 17-20th, 2022

3 nights in Edinburgh including a day trip to the Highland before finishing the trip in Ireland. Weather has been better than anticipated.


 May 15-17th, 2022

Group arrived and we will spend all day of 16th seeing the usual sites. Edinburgh on 17th by train.

SPAIN, Ibiza

 May 9 - 14th, 2022

A NEW DESTINATION !! The party atmosphere and reputation had made me reluctant to visit Ibiza but decided to give it a shot. Plus the full party scene was a few months away and I found a private room for 40 euro a night. The Castle and Old Town were nice but not spectacular but my day trip to Island of Formentara was worth the trip in itself. Fly to London to meet GROUP on May 15th for 2 weeks in London, Edinburgh and Ireland. 

DAY TRIP TO FORMENTARA known for its crystal clear water and long beaches.
