Most Memorable Travel Experience
We loved Cinque Terra on the Italian riviera,:touring ancient sites in Greece: bike riding in yangshou & Beijing China .. Beijing Harley cycle store... Hawaiian people, beaches and sites,... canopy tours in Puerto Vallarta..Greek Islands,Crete ancient sites, Statue of Liberty, Kos mosaics, Rhodes old town, Karpathos wild island, ancient Messene, Ephesus, Pamakkula & Patara Turkey ... every trip has something exciting that we will never forget. We love new cultures and doing things that are a little different...
If you aren't having fun you're doing something wrong! Our motto:travel light, travel safe, travel happy!. When things tangle up it's usually a good story later... We have been travel buddies for 40 years Having a great time seeing sites, visiting with people and enjoying the wonderful diverse cultures..... Hope you enjoy our blogs and pictures....

It has been a bit of a surprise how difficult it is to write blogs..... so we admire all of the people who do take the time....
When you visit our blogs please leave a smile :~) ... We would love to hear from you!

Travel Light, Travel Safe & Travel Happy!

Happiness isn't a destination... It is a way of traveling! ... Choose to be happy!

My Greek friend Stratis says "If you can't change it, just enjoy it" Good advice!

Everyday we try to learn something. When we are traveling we learn countless things daily ... ♥ We love that!
