Welcome to my blog! Once again this slightly crazy, silver-haired 73-year-old is about to hit the road – this time spending the entire summer traveling throughout Europe, with a little of the UK and Ireland thrown in for good measure.

My first stop is quick visit to New York City. On May 18th I’ll start my adventure in Paris – then it’s off to Portugal, Italy, Croatia, Slovenia, Hungary, Austria, the Czech Republic, and Poland before heading to Madrid to once again teach conversational English to Spanish executives for 8 days.

But I’m not done!

Then it’s onto the UK with a stop in London, a 10-day house/pet sit on the Isle of Man, a quick visit to Dublin before flying back to Lisbon – where we will board Holland America’s Veendam and enjoy a 12-day Atlantic crossing with stops in The Azores, Newfoundland, St. Pierre, Nova Scotia, and Maine before docking in Boston on September 7th.

And for the first time I am not traveling alone. I’ve invited my good friend, Joyce, along as my traveling companion. She started by saying she would come for just one week – then two – then perhaps three. But what really sold her on the entire summer adventure was the return cruise home!
