The next morning there was a particularly interesting session with the Globe Publisher, Phillip Crawley, about a front page headline referring to the new LIV golf tour. I took part naturally because I have been following the drama of this new Saudi sponsored tour. I also spent a bit of time talking about the arts […]Read more "Bordeaux Cruise Pt.3 with the Globe and Mail"
The last picture of my previous blog, Part 1 of the Bordeaux Cruise sums up how happy we were to arrive at the ship, and how happy we are in general. I love that picture! We settled in our cabin on the Scenic Diamond. If any of you have ever been on a River Cruise […]Read more "Bordeaux River Cruise with The Globe and Mail Part 2"
It was a beautiful summer here in Ontario, but now fall has arrived with lots of rain and a real unpleasant chill in the air. I promised to tell you about our visits to Stratford and other events that took place in August. Things are changing in the Covid department, in that fully vaccinated people […]Read more "Summer 2021"
I had been planning to write about our visits to Savannah, and then beaches of New Smyrna and Fernandina, but I am sheltering at home as they say, for Covid 19, and thought at this time perhaps it would be more pertinent to share my experience or rather ours as a family; my husband, Charles, […]Read more "At Home Spring 2020"
We got back from our trip to Spain about a month ago, and I finally sorted all the pictures, and am now ready to tell you about our wonderful vacation. Arriving home is not nearly as much fun as arriving at our destination. First off, there is the time change, that is, Europe is ahead […]Read more "Spain and other wonderful locales Pt. 1"
If you have been following my East Africa blogs: https://suddenly70.ca/2019/02/09/wonderful-trip-to-east-africa-pt-1/ and https://suddenly70.ca/2019/03/21/wonderful-trip-to-east-africa-pt-2/ you might remember that after our time at Ngorongoro Crater we planned to head to a tented camp. We knew very little about this camp except that we had confidence in Roar Africa, our travel advisor. We were simply delighted when we arrived. We […]Read more "Wonderful Trip to East Africa Pt. 3"
In the middle of telling you about our trip to East Africa https://suddenly70.ca/2019/02/09/wonderful-trip-to-east-africa-pt-1/, I celebrated a big birthday on February 20. My 75th!! Now my philosophy about birthdays is to own them, to rejoice, rather than moan about the passage of another year. I had lots of help with this one as many friends travelled […]Read more "Wonderful trip to East Africa Pt. 2"
Charles and I have a tradition. Whenever one of us celebrates a special birthday we get to choose a special trip. It was my choice this time, and I was drawn back to Africa. I adored our visit there three years ago, and was totally mesmerized by the animals and the scenery. https://suddenly70.ca/2017/01/18/south-african-dream-2/ https://suddenly70.ca/2017/02/03/south-african-dream-pt-1/https://suddenly70.ca/2017/02/17/more-south-african-dream/ https://suddenly70.ca/2017/03/11/african-dream-come-true/ […]Read more "Wonderful Trip to East Africa Pt. 1"
I left you at the Rimrock Hotel in Banff. Now the amazing thing about this place is that it is ranked very high on many travel sites online, and travel magazines like Travelers Condé Nast. We really did not like it, and found it below par. So how then do we trust these rankings? Or […]Read more "Fun and Travel with our British Friends Pt. 2"
I have written before about our good friends, Stewart and Barbara from Lancashire, particularly our great trip to Italy with them. See: https://suddenly70.ca/2016/10/09/viva-italia-part-1/ https://suddenly70.ca/2016/10/17/viva-italia-part-2/ https://suddenly70.ca/2016/10/31/viva-italia-part-3/. You will have a better idea of our relationship and our ease in travelling together after checking out these earlier blogs. We have now done 6 visits/trips with them and […]Read more "Fun and Travel with our British friends"
