Ravello – not long now!

75 Days to go before I board the Lufthansa flight to Naples. Counting the days, hours and minutes. Can’t wait to return to Ravello and the Amalfi Coast and excited to see Naples and Capri for the first time. Wish I could stay there forever.

A day at the Spa – Ah!

Pueblo-Bonito-Sunset-Beach-14

Massages’s are wonderful on their own, facials always a treat, but a day at the Spa…..Ah! Heaven. Being greeted with a Mimosa and sitting in perfectly quiet rooms between treatments. Wonderful smells, steam, dimmed lighting. Nothing is more relaxing.

Above is the wonderful Spa at the Pueblo Bonito at Sunset Beach. Pretty Special!

 

I’m tired – I need to rest in Campania

It’s been too long since my last visit and July seems an eternity away! Counting the days.

The Need for a Vacation

Why don’t we need a vacation until it’s almost upon us. We go about our every day routine as busy or mundane as it may be, but we do it. The vacation is way in the future. It slowly creeps up on us. Suddenly we can barely make it through the week, or to the end of the day. We need that vacation so bad! Sixteen days and counting!

The view from my deck makes me never want to leave….take a good luck Sue and Ian Gib! Free vacation with dramatic views!

 

Aging with Gusto! My Travel Blog!

Been completely gluten-free for 12 days now. I feel much better in myself, but I’m not sure gluten is main issue. Oh well, you have to try! I’ll keep up the gluten-free diet, just because it makes ME feel better. I wondered if I was allergic to dairy, then I tried making a cappuccino with almond milk……not going to happen again!

Anyway, on to brighter subjects!

Aging  certainly isn’t for wimps so as I struggle uphill with the big 60 just over a year ahead of me, I plan my future with gusto! (and three trips in the pipeline)

Hey everyone needs a week in Mexico in March. Our body craves sunshine, so lets talk Mexico today! My first trip to Mexico was 2009. I’d always avoided it because I’d heard stories! 

My first trip was to the Grand Velas in Nuevo Vallarta. One trip and I was hooked. I nearly didn’t make it. 2009 was the year the company I used to work for (but no more thank heavens), laid off half of its staff. (I survived that ugly environment for another five years). It was also the year of Swine Flu, which delayed our trip for a couple of months, when I finally made it, this is what greeted me.

Been back to this resort twice since then. It never disappoints.

I still have an awful lot of exploring to do in Mexico as I’ve only visited Puerto Vallarta and Cabo San Lucas. Thankfully it’s not a very long flight from Colorado. Yes, I’m lucky enough to call Colorado my home.

 

Memories of Italy – View from a Tuscan Villa

Tuscany

Perfect in every way. Tuscany is everything anyone ever tells you, and more!

Hooked on Sunsets – Ravello – Amalfi Coast

This is the beautiful view from our hotel in Ravello. The Hotel Villa Maria was the most beautiful, perfect place I’ve ever stayed and you will see more of it in later posts. It may have been the deciding factor on my house purchase in italy.
