RV Lessons Learned – Florida to Texas – Day 2
Our first day on the road had lots of RV lessons learned. We’d made it to our site at the Madison RV & Golf Resort late, but okay. After a quick dinner, we went to bed early and dropped right off to sleep, tired but pleased with getting through the day. We woke up cold […]
RV Lessons Learned – Florida to Texas – Day 1
After the RV lessons learned from the previous day’s experiences loading our rig, we were finally hitting the road! The RV Garmin was programmed for each night’s stop, the gas tank was full, and we’d each hit the restroom one last time. RV Lesson: the map is not the territory The day’s goal was the […]
How Our First Airstream-only RV Park Spoiled Us
Virginia Highland Haven, a Blue Ridge Escape In hindsight, it seems strange that we didn’t try this before. We love everything about Airstream trailers. When we find another one in an RV park, we almost always strike up a conversation and find like-minded people. But we’d never stayed at an Airstream-only RV park until we […]
Living our Dream, Hitting the Road in our Airstream!
We’d dreamed of hitting the road in an Airstream for years. Sometimes we’d put the dream on the shelf as impractical. Then we’d watch a few more Youtube videos or read more blog posts, and we’d find ourselves driving by the local Airstream dealer just to check what’s on the lot. We reached a point […]
A Brave New World – Biometric Check-in at the Airport
A sign at the Lufthansa gate happily informed us that this would be a biometric check-in. You need one of the newer passports that is biometric-capable. There’s an icon on the cover that identifies it. The passport has a small embedded chip that contains more info than the basic contact information printed in your passport. […]

Brooks Addiction Walker Shoes
I love my Brooks Addiction Walker shoes. I started with Brooks running shoes nearly 20 years ago.
Last year, I had concerns about the possibility of our trip to Europe being ruined
Winter Park Farmers’ Market – Winter Park, FL
One of our favorite places to spend a romantic Saturday morning is the Winter Park Farmers’ Market. It’s a positively wonderful way to start the weekend. Last Saturday morning, we packed up our market basket and a couple of hats and headed out. However, we do aim for getting there before 10 o’clock as it […]
Hotel Novecento, Venice, Italy
I was drawn to the Hotel Novecento by the photos of its beautiful rooms when I searched online for lodging in Venice, Italy. While we stayed there, I was impressed by their attentive but unobtrusive service. The Italian Air Traffic Controllers called a strike the day that we were to arrive in Venice. Once our […]
Hotel della Signoria Florence, Italy
After spending four nights in a smaller boutique hotel in Venice, the Hotel della Signoria (HDS) in Florence was a big shift. For one, HDS has an elevator, a convenience that our knees greatly appreciated. Though it’s a small elevator, and the sign says that it can accommodate six people, we joked just how they […]
