A Favorite Westcoast Vacation City - San Francisco San Francisco is one of those cities that need no introduction; like Hollywood and New York, this city already enjoys international renown for everything from sightseeing to shopping to entertainment. One sure way to see the sights is to travel on a double-decker bus tour of the city.   San Francisco is made up of diversie neighborhoods, each with their own “flavor” which makes visiting this varied city forever fascinating.  Just to mention a few areas may recognize from books, movies, and history there’s Chinatown, Fisherman’s Wharf, Golden Gate Park, Presidio, Nob Hill, and Union Square. There is truly something for everyone here - Americana in all its glory is tempered with European style and a continental dash of panache that pervades everyone and every thing. San Francisco owes much of its beauty to its amazing geographical setting. The bay, on a clear day or even when shrouded in fog, is...

ClonMcnoise, in County Offaly Ireland is a captivating place, at once tragic and inspiring, with a haunting beauty that stays with you long after parting. Ancient Castle Watches Over the Area As you approach the site, the first thing you see is the 12th century castle.  Originally a fearsome obstacle to intruders, its bulwarks would have been crowned by sharpened timbers and possibly surrounded by a mote.  Age has since reduced the mighty structure to a ghost of its former self, and the shifting ground under its foundation has left the remaining stones with angles that seem to defy gravity. Nevertheless, the castle clings to the hillside in a geriatric attempt to watch over the area it once defended. Fairy Tale Setting You’d be hard put to find a prettier setting. To my left, the River Shannon sparkled in the afternoon sun, and on the right crumbling stone churches and...

My Belize Vacation Adventure Day 1 - Arrive BelizeMy Belize vacation began when I landed at the Belize airport. The minute I departed the plane and start climbing down the stairs, the heat and humidity hit me directly in the face. Then we were led (in a straight line of course) to a small building where customs and our luggage await. Going through customs I always wish I was a local their lines always seem much shorter. After passing through customs and collecting our baggage, my friend Ruth and I are met by our driver Jorge. For the next 5 days we will be staying in the Jungle, a 1 ½ hour drive from the airport. Jorge informs us that he has to pick up another passenger before driving us to our resort. This gives Ruth and I the opportunity to have lunch at Bacab Eco Park (only 15 minutes from the airport). I had...

Golden Gate Bridge - Worth A Visit Think of San Francisco and one of the first things that comes to mind is the 8,981 feet of steel that crosses the bay, known as the Golden Gate Bridge. Opened in 1937 this famous bridge has been crossed and visited by millions of people and is one of the most photographed bridges in the world. The bridge cost more than $35 million to build and was completed ahead of schedule and under budget (when was the last time that happened?). Visiting the Golden Gate Bridge is a wonderful experience and you can hike, walk, bike or take a guided tour there. People are allowed to walk on the East Sidewalk (side facing San Francisco) only and there are automatically-controlled gates that open and close the bridge at approximately sunrise and sunset. Just remember to leave the dogs at home as no pets are allowed on the bridge.Unfortunately the Parks...
