Life is good and we have been blessed. We have always seen our 43 years of marriage as a continuous adventure. while we no longer enjoy the challenges of living in Alaskan Villages, we manage to find new options. we love living in the Sierra Foothills, but we also need to explore the world.
During our life together, we have managed to explore all of the United States except for Hawaii. i guess that growing up in California beach towns spoiled us and the desire for more beaches (even tropical ones) is limited. We have criss-crossed most of Western Europe several times and have visited some of Eastern Europe. Cruising is new to us. We have enjoyed reaching places I would not drive to like Egypt and the Holy Land.
Retirement has given us the chance to go places without summer crowds. our next adventure inspired this blog. I doubt if we will add much to the extensive literature on the Camino. I do hope to give our family and friends a running commentary on what we are doing. There is even the chance that we can avoid the need for an endless slide show at holiday time.
CONCEPT UPDATE – Since we have spent a good part of the last three years traveling and doing genealogy, I believe it is appropriate to expand the focus from our upcoming adventure to include our travels to places associated with our ancestors. I realize this may be of little interest to those outside of our family, but that is why they invented the Delete Key and the Spam Filter. I will try to modify categories and organization as my entries increase to make navigation somewhat easier. Thanks for your patience.
