Most Memorable Travel Experience
* Each trip or road that I have traveled on has brought many snapshots of memorable moments that are etched in my mind and my heart. Here are some...
* My honeymoon in Italy with my Jc.....A country "oozing" with romance and culture
* Traveling through India with friends(Lillie & Luz)....this country touched my inner soul through its culture and spirituality
* Experiencing a meteorite shower in the Grand Canyon at 4:00 a.m. That was truly breath taking!
* Cruising the Caribbean for my niece's Sweet 16
* Being in the Bahamas for my god-daughter's Sweet 16
* A hamman in Marrakech, Morocco....takes you back to a Roman/Turkish bath....Moroccan style
* Seeing the Effiel Tower (Paris,France)from the train car window as it made the turn into the train station.. What a sight! It gave me goose bumps..:-)
* Experiencing Christ Redeemer's outstretched arms over Rio de Janiero,Brazil and ME as I travel this country...:-)
*Experiencing the "Mezquita" in Cordaba, Spain with My Honey (Jc)
* The breathtaking views from on the cliff tops of Meteora in Greece
* Visiting Elvis' resting place in Graceland-PRICELESS!!
* Raising my prayers to my mom on her 7th anniversary in heaven in Machu Picchu....breathtaking!!
*"The difference between a tourist and a traveler is that a tourist seeks only comfort while a traveler seeks discovery. They take more risks. They get pleasure in overcoming difficulties and discomforts, and they seek out the people."--Lea Lane.

We are all travelers in the wilderness of this world, and the best that we find in our travels is an honest friend." "SuperRio"

I stumbled across these quotes on this site and it truly sums up my feelings about traveling. The more I travel the more I want to seek the "off beaten" paths towards adventure...;-)

*Trying to really find tranquility in the "here and now" by trying to live life simply.

BTW...I finally have figured out what I want to be when I grow up....A Globe Trekker.... Can't get any better than that!! ...;-)

I voted for education...
I voted for peace...
I voted for change...
Obama ROCKS!!

( I still believe for 2012) My Reflection towards the upcoming inauguration and new presidency:
That we come together to serve;
not just for ourselves but to model for our young people so they in turn can continue to work for CHANGE.
WE should work together so that "service" will be part of who WE ARE!
