We go somewhere different every time, so all I can say is "so far" it's Italy!

 

I love Florence or should I say, Firenze! Here we are at The Duomo

 

The place we've gone the most is Maui, but that is home away from home for me, been going there regular since 1977. I was married there, renewed my vows there and celebrated 3 anniversaries there too 

nelson 10 year Anniversary, renewing our vows with the same minister at the same location: Grand Wailea. We celebrate 15 years this October...it may be time to go back to Maui?

Here I am headed into an adventure INTO the Big Cypress swamp.

I witnessed Florida from a perspective fewer than 1% of Florida natives ever have.

Work becomes far removed from ones thinking as the each step separates from what is real and what matters little at this time.

I like the beach, and Pompano is my favored but to 'get away' it is the living fully present in the moment that appeals to me. Bring on the "that's crazy stuff" and count me IN!

We went to Costa Rica a few months ago- loved it.

Just got back from Paris and the UK- if you haven't gone yet- do. If you're good at scouting air fare sites it's possible to hit locations abroad for what you'd pay to travel a few states over.
