"In each of us is a desire to be someone unique"

I have soooo much to do:

Portland, Oregon
Charleston, SC
Virginia Beach
New Orleans
Las Vegas

My desire to travel to undiscovered places has been waylaid for the past few years. I want to go back to the days when I walked among the unknown and experienced and learned the language, cultures, etc along the way.

Many of my pictures are packed away and I fear that many will not be able to be scanned for quite some time. Uploading individual pics is hard!

If only I could bottle and sell!

My love of sunsets and sunrises is unending. I believe that each day brings you another 24 hours to enjoy life to the fullest (even if its just watching your favorite program (this is outdated; i no longer watch tv) or running up your favorite mountain). Once you cross midnight, the next day is yours for the taking. I have collected many sunsets/sunrises from around the world and I intend to make an album here to highlist those.

Beautiful Sunsets:
Ararat - Unreal
Key West - they have a special party everyday
New Mexico - Rio Grande, White Sands Full Moon Party
Cancun - beautiful beaches
Hawaii - Kihei; Waikiki, Kailua
San Diego - Everyday
Turks and Caicos - One of the most beautiful I have ever seen
Paris - On top of the Effiel Tower
Brandisi - Leaving Italy behind
Athens - On top of the World
Venice - Pink Lights and rain
Lucerne - Lake in full beauty
Washington, DC - My home
Spain - Feria

My Favorite Scene from Spain

Feria in Sevilla, Spain...during April. I love Spain; can I move there?
I will have to get the other picture from this years FERIA!!! I made it back!!!! The entrance/gate was very Moorish!

Anyone have a dart?

As a child, I would often tell my mother that I wanted to go to Ohio and Idaho. My mother would ask why and I would reply "because no one else goes there."

The world is much smaller now than when I was a child. Almost no place is undiscovered, but yet, discovering an undiscovered place can just be you seeing a place, a person or what have you for the first time.

I believe South America, Asia, Middle East and Africa are where I would like to go next.

The following are the list of places I have scheduled for the rest of 2006 (so far) :

Sacramento - Jan
DC - March
Oahu, Hawaii - March
Spain/Portugal - April/May
Vegas - May
Clearlake, CA - June
Sacramento/El Dorado - July
DC - July
Greece/Turkey/London - Aug/Sept 07
Carib - FALL 07
India - Dec 08
South America - Fall 09

California Dreamin'

Sometimes dreams do come true. This is the daily occurence about one block from where I now live. How lucky am I? The ocean is right across the way too. I am definitely taking things for granted; I feel bad if I miss the sunset. Now that June Gloom arrives I don't feel as bad about going to work anymore:) Life has definitely be whirl wind here!

    It was fun looking at your albums. You would not miss too much if you just crossed off those seven modern wonders though ... the natural ones are more memorable, I promise! Happy travels!
