A vacation with benefits; Playa del Carmen, Mexico

My choice of title has nothing to do with “friends”.  It just seems an appropriate way to describe a relaxing vacation that had some decent sight-seeing mixed in!  Here’s the tale! The trip was at the end of February 2019. [Lots of pictures, but I hope you’ll read it, too. I’d love some comments!]

Eye Candy – San Juan

A little treat, I hope!  Here is a slideshow of photos of Old San Juan I took when out touring with friends from the States.  Enjoy!

A Mini- Vacation in The Caribbean

I spent 5 days and 4 nights at the Circle by Meliá Paradisus Palma Real in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic in late January.  Because it is an all-inclusive resort, this post is more of a hotel review than a travelogue.  But the pictures are colorful! Enjoy!

The view from our balcony at night. It was really lovely to watch the sun go down from there.

Finally! Finishing the Corsica & Sardinia Journal

It is done!  A two week trip that took me almost 6 weeks to get posted, but I loved reliving every minute.  Here is the final installment.  If you haven’t read it yet, it all starts here.  (There are links between all the pages so if you haven’t read parts – just click your way to the sections you haven’t seen.)

The Hiking in Sardinia continues, and the weather holds.

We have had beautiful weather on this trip, but here, towards the end, we finally saw some clouds and felt a few rain drops.  Unfazed, we explored the area around Cabras.  Enjoy! (Click here to read the latest installment.)

See the different colors of the sea and the lagoon? This is the Sinis Peninsula in Sardinia.
