Our story!

For several years now I have had the urge to travel which has been a dream of mine before marriage and children. My husband was never keen on the idea until one afternoon in 2016 he said, "let's do this!" The next day I began to sell, donate and give away items from my home. He was a bit shocked when he got home from work. I immediately called a realtor and our home sold within 24 hours for more than we were asking. I had sold, donated and given away EVERYTHING so that the day we moved we didn't even need a truck. We were able to drive away with everything we had left in both our vehicles. We moved to a smaller place directly across from the beach to enjoy the sunrise and sunsets for the following year before taking off to travel full time!

Travel Insurance

We had made plans to take a Canadian route from Michigan to Niagara Falls. I decided I had better check with our medical insurance and Medicare that we had coverage in Canada. The answer was no to my surprise. I don’t know why I thought differently. Any time we make plans to Europe I always purchase travel insurance and medical insurance through Allianz. It was recommended to me by a friend of mine who is a travel agent. She said they were reputable and paid the claims of her clients with no hassles.

Remember that accidents and health issues to happen and you want to be prepared. The cost is minimal compared to the cost of any unforeseen medical emergency. Here is the link for Allianz - Click Here

La Mancha, Spain

Frankfurt, Germany

 What a wonderful visit we had with a high school friend and her family. We had such a great visit and made lasting memories together. Frankfurt is a beautiful city to visit considering it was leveled during World War II. They built on the ruins left from the war and you can see how the old architecture merges with the new. Amazing history there!

During the time that we were visiting Germany a bomb had been discovered from World War II. That is part of the life of living in an area where so many bombs were dropped during the war, 75 years ago.

Lisbon, Portugal

 This year we did not get to go to Europe as we planned because of the pandemic. Instead I decided to take this year and catch up with all the videos of our previous years visiting Portugal, Spain, England and Germany. We have our tickets already purchased for 2022 to visit Portugal, France and Spain. We have invited our youngest daughter, Deena, to join us. We are really excited to share all that we have experienced with her too.

Our first and last stop for each visit to Europe is Lisbon, Portugal. We love the airport there and the efficiency of going through customs. In this video I wanted to capture the beautiful architecture of the old city. A great place to explore, eat, discover, shop and so much more. One of our favorite places to visit! 

When you watch our video you will understand why we love it there so much and want to return each year...

Home to South Florida

 This year we stayed home to take of some medical stuff. It was great to live that Florida lifestyle in the winter especially. I miss my girls and swimming the most when we travel. I was able to make up for lost time.
