My husband John and I are very fortunate to be able to travel the world the way we do. My father in law passed away at the age of 54 and never left New York. John decided that he would try and travel as much as he can before time passes us by and who am I to stop him (lol) so here we go….
We have been to 80 countries on six continents and 39 states in North America, and we are just getting started. Some of the posts are out of date order I apologize in advance. I also wanted to add that this website has become as busy as having a second job and that’s why it seems as if a 10-year-old is the writer. My husband John is also the editor and he is waaaaayyyyy behind so if there are any errors sorry.
If you have any questions, comments or would like suggestions, please shoot me a message. Enjoy reading while we continue to explore this amazing world we live in.

Today we had an excursion to go and hang out with dolphins. It was a really memorable experience that I highly recommend. We got a chance to take a picture and interact with them. They are so smart I was shocked at how much they knew.
Today we start out our tour with a trip to San Pedro de la Roca Castle Santiago de Cuba which was a great fort. We had a chance to see these women performing. I have a video of their performance down below. The next stop was a visit to the San Juan Hill and the Cathedral Santiago de Cuba. We also got a chance to see a local dance group perform as well. Once again videos are down below.
Today we drove to Our Lady of Jagua which is a fortress that was built in the 18th century. After a brief visit to the fortress, we saw local performers. Please scroll down below to see some of the videos from the performance.
After the performance, we stopped at a local restaurant and had a quick bite to eat. The food was delicious!
Today we arrived at the Port of Havana. The first thing John and I both noticed was how dirty the water was. It was full of oil it looked like black mud. The first thing we drove by was the American Embassy with all the famous flagpoles in front of it. There were no flags blocking it, but the poles were all there. We then drove about 3 hours to the Vinales Valley and visited the home of a cigar farmer and got a cache to see him roll a cigar which was pretty cool. The next stop was the Mural de la Prehistoria and took a few pics of the big mural.
The coolest part of being in Havana was the World Famous Tropicana show. If you are planning on going to Cuba make sure you purchase the tickets ahead of time.
Our hotel was Konsulat in Reykjavik. The hotel was newly renovated, and it was lovely. We met our friends Avin & Lindsy who are from Indiana but live in Florida now. They stayed there three years ago for one month, so it was nice being there with them because they knew all the hot spots. The names of the towns and restaurants are very long and complicated, so I will do my best to give as many details in the photos as possible. One thing that you will find in Iceland is that there are no shortages of waterfalls. The weather seems to be dodgy you will have 50/50 chance of rain or shine. The one thing I didn’t like was how cold it was while we were there it was their summer. Our first stop which is a MUST is a visit to the Blue Lagoon. It was a great experience.
