TUESDAY TRAVELER - 28 January 2014 - Beach or Snow




This week we're going to talk about the weather.  For many people, including myself, it's a deciding factor when we're planning a trip. 

So, with the amount of cold weather we had throughout most of the US since the start of 2014, where would you go?

I'd wager to say that while some would love hit the slopes; there are also a large number that would hit the shores.  Which one are you?



TUESDAY TRAVELER - 21 January 2014 - Prepare to Travel



This week we'll chat about preparing to travel.  We all have own way of preparing and don't always realize that what is normal for us may not have even been considered by others.

I'll take you through my planning process focusing on my leisure travels versus what I do for house sitting assignments.  Please share your planning process with us and we can all compare notes.

Let's GO!!!

TUESDAY TRAVELER - Dominican Republic - A chat about traveling

Without traveling or house/pet sitting much lately, I've been racking my brain to come up with something that would be of interest to you, my readers

Well I came up with what I call "Tuesday Traveler".  So, what is it?

It's an open forum concerning anything to do with travel.  With this format you will have the opportunity to tell us (now your readers) about your travel experiences and share your pictures.  Your submission can be where you want to go, where you went, how you plan, what you did.  You can recommend stuff like places to stay, eat, or attractions; ask questions, whatever, it just has to relate to travel.

Realizing some folks prefer to remain anonymous when making comments , here are the three ways currently available for submissions:
                -  Simply write it in the comment section below
                -  Select the "Contact Me" button
                - Send me an email (primarily for photos and video) to:  TravelThruMyEyes@gmail.com

Until I your submissions start coming in, I'll toss something out there for you to read, ponder, and reply as you see fit.

So without further ado, Let's GO!!!


2013 IN REVEIW - Welcome 2014











As with everything, there is a beginning and an end.  The year 2013 has ended and 2014 has begun.

Many people have made resolutions, wish lists, bucket lists, set goals, or whatever we want to call them for things they want to accomplish this year.  I too am guilty of making some of these and yes, I am equally as guilty of not following through on them. 

In my opinion the easiest way to accomplish things in life is to have a plan.  This not only applies to your professional life, but to your leisure life as well.  For me, since retiring at the age of 56 my professional and leisure lives have combined into one. 

Traveling and writing were by-products of my profession.  I traveled where my employer sent me and my writing was instructional, technical, and rather mundane.  That has all changed, thanks to you.

Here's a brief look at 2013, my year in review.
