About Me

I’m passionate about travel and everything related to it.  I enjoy researching and planning trips and I particularly enjoy finding a good deal for traveling on a shoestring budget.  I’m proud that my packing skills enable me to take only a carryon bag regardless of the duration of the trip.  I love history, wine, and food, (in that order) and all my adventures highlight these important features.  I especially enjoy meeting new people and find that we always have unexpected and surprising connections.  My goal is to reflect on and share my experiences through my blog, All Things Travel.

  9. Hi, Regards to u both from the 2 English snorkellers you met in Mexico’s Riviera Maya. Hoping the rest of your holiday went well. We arrived back in Devon yesterday and wish we were still at the Catalonia Royal. Our trip to Chichen Itza last week was amazing. I might have to do a blog on Mexico now, having read your wonderful trips. Enjoy N. Z. next month, our future plan is Africa in May, but we might head off somewhere warm in March first, best wishes and happy travelling, Liz and Peter x


    • Hi Liz, I looked at your blog while we were still in Mexico but didn’t leave a comment at the time. I’ll be back, however, to read more and drop you a comment or two. We enjoyed our stay so much we reserved again for next year which will be our 4th year in a row. Typically, we don’t return places as there are so many new places to see but we like to relax and just enjoy a getaway from the weather here in January. I’m glad you got to Chichen Itza; it really is impressive, isn’t it? Next time, check out Coba–you can still climb the pyramid there. Jim did; I only went far enough for a photo. I’m looking forward to reading about your future travels so keep posting. And don’t judge all Americans by our crazy government for the next 4 years. 🤡

    Hi! I was trying to find you but forgot your name. I remembered the name of the blog and hope you remember Dale and me from the New Zealand/Australia trip. We continued on the trip and had a great time. Let me know if you want any pictures. We are also still in contact with Debbie and Jerry, our fellow non-Visa line-mates.

    • Of course I remember you, Michelle. I’m beginning to write blog posts about our ill-fated cruise so I just looked at the photo of the 6 of us at dinner. I try to post on travel Tuesdays so check back for posts and feel free to comment with your memories. I keep looking for this itinerary to be repeated but so far I’ve seen nothing close. I hope your trip was everything we hoped ours would be. Thanks for reaching out and keep in touch.
