London Bridge is strong and beautiful and well-traveled in the warm Arizona sunshine. Yep … Arizona!
The Topanga Vintage Market
Vintage markets are always fun, like this one in Southern California.
Key West – a warm winter weekend
A recent trip is proof that good advertising works. A series of attractive and funny poster-sized ads promoting the Florida Keys splattered throughout one of the Washington Metro system’s busiest stations caught Greg’s eye as the weather turned frigid. With headlines like “Strong response to the latest poles” while showing fishermen casting their lines in azure seas, the… Continue reading Key West – a warm winter weekend
Take the Upgrade
What do you do with an extra week of vacation? I recently reached a milestone work anniversary and now earn an extra week of vacation every year. Greg is a few years behind me, so that leaves me with a week to use that he doesn't have. The trouble is, I really prefer traveling with… Continue reading Take the Upgrade
A beautiful, sun-filled day near the Chesapeake Bay calls you to the water. That’s how we ended up on Solomons Island, Maryland on a Saturday in May instead of touring embassies in downtown Washington, DC or even at the Air Mobility Command Museum in Dover, Delaware, both considered top options until the sun and wind… Continue reading Solomons Island

Unlike most, however, we get off regularly onto local roads. What determines when and where we… Continue reading Nostalgia

Traveling off the beaten path sometimes means that you'll end up staying somewhere unexpected. In the last 12 months, Judy and I have spent about four or five unplanned nights in hotels. In one case, it was because we encountered ice covered roadways. It didn't make sense to put our lives in danger just to… Continue reading Expect the Unexpected
Scenic Overlook: Worth the Stop
One of the things we have discovered (as you have read in previous posts), is staying off the beaten track and taking the road less traveled leads to unexpected delights. We recently hopped in the car and headed for a visit with family in the tiny town of Hillsville, Virginia. While much of the trip… Continue reading Scenic Overlook: Worth the Stop
Paris is where my friends meet
By Judy This scale model of the Eiffel Tower is a tourist draw for Paris, Tennessee If you know me, you know about Paris. It's one of those things Greg and I love to say to mess with people. We talk about going to Paris ... (long pause) ... Tennessee. It's a little town on… Continue reading Paris is where my friends meet
