Beautiful Prague

User Rating: 0 / 5

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
I had heard that Prague is beautiful, but never really asked why. After a few days there, I can honestly say I agree.
Let me clarify that I am talking about Prague, Czech Republic, not Prague, Oklahoma, which I'm sure is a lovely town by its own standards.

Here’s a tip: You Get What You Pay For

If you love to travel, chances are great that you have subscribed to a magazine at some time and now your mailbox brims with catalogs and brochures of travel opportunities. If you love to travel, you have probably clicked on a link on your computer and your inbox blows up with last minute specials to get out of town. If you love to travel, I trust you have signed up for a few loyalty programs and the cards, notices, advertisements and flyers keeps your “stuff to go through” pile of mail looking like a recycle bin.

We had a wonderful time cruising up the Mississippi River. It was sad to say goodbye to the America Queen Steamboat. It doesn’t take long to get used to excellent service, wonderful entertainment, beautiful accommodations, and food that makes one not want to miss a meal. We learned more than we expected. The onboard Riverlorian spoke about the steamboating way of life, both past and present. The musicians, and we are talking an eight-piece ensemble, performed every style of music that kept our toes tapping and more often, our whole body dancing up the river.

A Doggone Tale with a Happy Ending

So, it's no secret for those that know me, I'm not a big animal person, meaning I love hogs because that's where bacon comes from, but cats and little yippy dogs-no thanks. I'm also not a very good friend on FaceBook, as I hardly "check in." But this week, these worlds collided.

The much older sister has been raising a pet Yorkie that niece Jena Beth left at home when she went off to college. Maybe other parents can relate, you didn't want a dog to take care of, but 13 years later it's still there and there are times you like it better than your kid.  So our family was at a funeral last week when a thunder storm came up, and we are guessing that little Raely, who was confined to the screened in porch, must have freaked and tore off the screen and dug under the chain linked fence, because when sister and bro-in-law got home, the fur ball was gone.

I Love Paris in the Summer

The city of Love. I love Paris in the springtime but I also love Paris in the summer. The Good to Go gang is on our Paris and the Highlights of Normandy trip and to date, the weather has been spectacular. Most Parisians take the month of August to retreat from their heat and go on holiday. Much different from June 6, 1944 where thousands of our brave countrymen fought to liberate this charming and lovely countryside from the dark forces that were Nazism.

While there is much more security presence just to get up close to the iconic Eiffel Tower, none of the gendarme (law enforcement) procedures interfered with our enjoyment of visiting the land of women and wine, Monet and Matisse, and romantic love tempered with the distant somber history of France.

Let’s Go Parkin’

People have been doing it for years. One hundred years to be exact. Some take it so serious, that they document the date and location in a special diary. Some return to the same places over and over, while others want to take their parkin’ partners to as many different spots as possible in a lifetime. 58 perfect places have been identified, but some are almost unknown and not used as much as others. If there was a great year to go parkin’, this is it- 2016.

It’s that time again. Big Red is on the cedar chest. (That is my name of my luggage) My uniforms are piled on the bed. (That’s what I call my travel attire) My Survival Kit is Good to Go. (That’s what I call the bag of things I put in my carry-on bag to make a long flight more pleasant. It’s time to pack. We leave tomorrow.

There’s a couple of things you need to know about this travelin’ gal. Number one, I name everything. Number two, I can be packed and Good to Go in a hurry. People often ask me if I stay packed, I can honestly say, “Almost.”
