China 2006


Our first web pages were from our trip to China in 2006.   We took a group tour and saw many important sights and covered lots of miles.



Southwest France - 2007


The next set of pages showed the different aspects of Southwest France in the spring of 2007:   the cities, countryside, its  villages and churches.

Northeast Canada - 2007


Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Toronto can be seen in the pictures from our trip to Canada in the fall of 2007.

Mexico City and the Silver Cities - 2008


In January of 2009, we took a trip to Mexico and spent time in the “silver” cities of the central plateau as well as Mexico City.  

SW Canada & NW United States - 2008


We brought back pictures of out-of-the-way places from our trip to southwestern Canada and the northwestern United States in June 2008.

Turkey - 2009


We went to Turkey to learn more about the Greek, Roman and Byzantine cultures.   We also learned a little about how the people there are now.


Naples & Southern Italy - 2010


In the fall of 2010, we traveled to Naples and around the boot, the southern part of Italy.  It’s an area that few people know much about, even though they may wish to learn.

Northern Italy & Burgundy, France - 2011


We went to places that were new to us and places that we had seen before in 2011.  We saw incredible mountains and spectacular architecture in northern Italy and the Burgundy region of France.

Mexico - Puebla & Oaxaca - 2012


In February 2012, we went to different places in Mexico:  primarily Puebla and Oaxaca.  Driving, we saw a lot of the country, east and west.

Portugal - 2012


Sunny Portugal was our destination in the fall of 2012.  Knowing it is a small country whose power and glory are gone, now we enjoy it as a very friendly and relaxed place.


Guatemala - 2013


Our winter travel took us to Guatemala in 2013.  Both the ancient Mayan monuments and current Maya culture were amazing.  Traveling there was made easy by  having professional help.

Northeast Italy - 2013


We found a great number of places of interest in Northeast Italy.  Going to see the Dolomites was one of our primary goals.   We enjoyed revisiting Venice and learning about the whole area and its mixed history. 

France - 2014


This trip was like three small vacations.  We first went to Marseille, then flew to Corsica and ended up in the Loire Valley for rest and relaxation.   All are beautiful, but different.

Mexico - 2015


On this short vacation, we divided our time between Querétaro and Mexico City.   We enjoyed the architecture and four UNESCO sites we visited.

Italy - 2015


Italy has an eternal fascination for us.  We revisited Naples and Rome and explored an area where few travel, the Abruzzo.

Québec - 2016

The first time we went to Québec, a snowstorm kept us from visiting the Gaspé Peninsula.  This time we went in the spring and enjoyed Québec City, the Charlevoix coast and Saguenay Fjord before visiting the Gaspésie.
