message 2: by Alyssa (new)

Alyssa (aly_in_the_city) Glad I found this new group. Like to read books to enlighten myself about the world and places where I have or might travel. I've been to Canada (Victoria), Mexico, England, France (Paris, Normandy), Italy (Milan, Rome, Sorrento, Amalfi), Germany, Panama, Costa Rica, India (Delhi, Jaipur, Agra). This Fall, I will be heading to London & Edinburgh. In 2019 (for my 50th), I'm considering Poland. My ethnicity is Polish & I'm intrigued to discover more about my own heritage. I'd also like to read things by local authors.

message 39: by Linda (new)

Linda (lndoyle) | 1 comments We have lived in Ponce, Puerto Rico, Kaneohe, HI, and Terneuzen, the Netherlands (visited almost all Western European countries while there), in years past, as well as in NJ, AL, VA, LA, GA, IN, FL & NY in the US (are back living in Auburn, AL now for the duration). Husband has run marathons in all but a handful of States, so we’ve spent at least a weekend in each of them, including 23 times in D.C. Just returned from our annual family beach week in Pawleys Island, SC. Gearing up for a 50th HS reunion trip back to NJ this fall. Will be cruising in the Caribbean in December with friends (have been on 20+ cruises all over the place, mostly to Mexico and the Caribbean). Planning 2 big trips next year: 2 weeks in HI to celebrate our 50th anniversary, and 10 days split between Amsterdam & Paris in the spring with our granddaughter, daughter and friends to celebrate granddaughter’s HS graduation. We LOVE to travel. It’s much easier now that we’re retired.


message 40: by Derek (new)

Derek | 18 comments Just got back from 5 days in San Diego. Some of the best beaches, sunsets and breweries you'll ever find. And LegoLand, of course.


Amy (won't be online for a while. sorry to all the groups i'm in!) (mattbatt) | 52 comments The beaches do look beautiful I just searched up a picture


message 42: by Derek (new)

Derek | 18 comments We actually had a Blood Red sunset one evening, most likely due to all the massively destructive wildfires that are raging in my state.


Amy (won't be online for a while. sorry to all the groups i'm in!) (mattbatt) | 52 comments We had a red sun two years ago in Calgary. It was cool.
