Mahalo Hawaii

Aloha Hawaii Been there three times all together and loved it every time! So that says a lot. I really like it in Hawaii. The climate, the waves, the water, the fact that snakes don’t exist there.

Antarctica

I made my dream X come true and visited Antarctica in January 2009 – it was magnificent and although the trip was not cheap and I saved money for a year it was worth every single penny. There is so much to talk about this trip but I am going to keep it low 🙂 […]

Western Australia

My first real trip of the year 2014 took me to Australia. The flight with Qatar Airways wasn’t too bad on the flight to Australia. I flew during the week, the aircraft was almost empty, so I was able to get an entire row and slept almost the entire way from Doha to Perth. Once […]
