As I mentioned last week, I was migrating my blog from WordPress.com to WordPress.org…making it a self-hosted blog. One thing I didn’t know is that anyone that opted to follow my blog using their WordPress.com user id, would no longer get notifications of my new postings. Needless to say…I’m bummed that I’ve lost some of […]
It’s about time I post photos for Twitter’s #FriFotos challenge. This week’s theme is HARBORS. I’ve picked a couple of harbors that probably couldn’t more different from one another. Seward, Alaska – Small Boat Harbor Seward happens to be one of the ice free ports in Alaska and because of that stays busy year-round, but […]
Coming back from vacation, I really didn’t think much about taking photos this week. Besides, how could I have outdone the photos I’ve taken over the last few weeks? However, my TV watching was rudely interrupted by this guy’s squawking. He was so loud.
When I first started my blog, I was very confused about whether to use WordPress.com (essentially free unless you want additional features) and WordPress.org (free software, but you have to pay for hosting). Because I was new and had no idea if I’d actually get anywhere with it, I choose the Wordpress.com. A couple of years […]
During my trip to the Galapagos, we stayed three nights on Isabela Island. All the islands of the Galapagos were formed by volcanoes and Isabela is no different, but it was the one island where we ventured up to, around the rim of, and into a volcanic caldera. Isabela is also where I learned the […]
This week’s photos are of the colorful people of Cuzco, Peru.
Originally I booked the Inca Trail Extension as an add-on to my Active Galapagos Tour with Intrepid. Due to needing knee surgery for the 6th time coming up in November, I decided hiking the grueling Inca Trail was not a good idea. Intrepid was able to change some things so that I could still see […]
After snorkeling at Shark Alley near San Cristobal, our Intrepid tour of the Galapagos took us to a beach for some relaxation and lunch. In reality…we needed to warm up after the chilling snorkeling we’d just done. These curious little finches were not afraid at all. This guy walked right up to me and I […]
Wow…we thought getting there took some steps. Leaving took almost as many. Breakfast was served at 7:00 am and promptly at 7:30 am our journey back to Quito began. We took a private bus from the main part of Santa Cruz to a ferry dock. We boarded the ferry; us below and our bags haphazardly […]
When I travel I like to get brave and try customary food/drinks. I started out my trip in Peru with something easy…a Pisco Sour. Pisco is a local spirit made from grapes. I didn’t try a shot of it, so I’m not sure what’s it’s individual taste is, but a Pisco Sour includes Pisco, Bitters, […]
