Chicago – Always Great to Visit

Tweet For this new entry in my travel and photography blog, it was time to get back to one of my favourite cities in the US to visit, Chicago.  This beautiful city on Lake Michigan and home to many skyscrapers, has done an excellent job in planning their waterfront and park systems to make for […]

More Time Spent in Ireland

Tweet After having the opportunity to visit Ireland through three separate ports on a British Isles cruise last year, it left us wanting more of this beautiful land and its friendly people.  For this visit we decided to stay in Dublin to explore the city and we also allowed for a couple of tours to […]
