Birmingham Civil Rights Trail

I love traveling to visit historic sites. When I was a child, visiting historic sites, helped to expand upon what I learned from history class in school. Seeing the sites in person, brings a new perspective to what is learned in history books. As an adult, visiting historic sites, brings an even deeper meaning toContinue reading “Birmingham Civil Rights Trail”

An afternoon on the Northern Oregon Coast

While visiting Portland, Oregon last October, I took a drive out to the coast for the afternoon. I’ve dreamed of visiting the Oregon coast since I was young and watched the movie, Goonies.

Chasing Waterfalls Across the US in 2021

2021 was definitely a better travel year than 2020. It was a great year to explore more of my own country, since there were no restrictions to travel within the US. To be on the safer side, I tried to take trips that involved lots of outdoor activities and when looking back at them, IContinue reading “Chasing Waterfalls Across the US in 2021”

Boston’s Holiday Market at Snowport

One of these years, I will make it over to Europe in December to visit some of the Christmas markets, but until then I’m glad that many cities in the United States have started their own Christmas Markets, including right here in Boston. Although not exactly the same as the Christmas Markets in Europe, itContinue reading “Boston’s Holiday Market at Snowport”
