Street Art of Havana

June 28, 2019

Wherever you go in Havana, you can’t avoid an assault on your senses.  Sights, sounds and smells permeate the city at all hours of the day and night.  Sometimes the smells are heaven, cooking from a kitchen, a flower cart rolling by you on the street and other times less pleasant smells that make you…

The Art of Cuba

April 20, 2019

Cuba-Forbidden, compelling and utterly unique.  I’ve always had a fascination with places that are slightly more difficult to get to, they’re usually so much more interesting.  In a world that’s becoming ever more homogenous, Cuba is as different as any place you’ll find.

The Blog is Back!!!  Most, or some of you know I started this blog when I spent 2 years driving around the U.S. 2011-2013. It had a brief resurgence with a trip to Nebraska and then went dormant again.  I thought it would be fun to post some of my favorite moments from my Bday…

The Great State of Nebraska

March 13, 2016

“There are no uninteresting places, only uninteresting people”-MJH A little judgmental? Maybe, but it is me writing this blog after all 🙂 There is more than a little truth to that statement.  When you travel, you need to use your imagination.
