WELCOME TO MY TRAVEL BLOG
I have always enjoyed traveling, even if it meant sleeping in a tent when I was younger. I prefer hotels and cruise cabins now, but the motivation is the same...an adventure waiting to happen. Sometimes you will find me traveling with my husband and/or family. Sometimes I will travel alone, and sometimes I will travel with friends. I hope you find it entertaining to keep up to date with me as I explore the world around me. Warning...I like to take pictures of food so don't read if you're hungry. More adventures await...see ya soon...Amy.

London/Paris 2010...we are here
Mom and I started our journey with Dad driving us to pick up my sister Debbie and her daughter Brittany in New Orleans before heading on to the airport. Dad ran an errand for mom while we helped with last minute packing decisions for Debbie and Brittany. Dad was sure we would be late for check in when Debbie said she just HAD to stop for her cappuccino at the Circle K but we made it to the airport right on time. Check in was a breeze and the flight to Chicago was uneventful. We thought that a four hour layover there would be a looonnggg time, but the time passed quickly. The flight to London was delayed at the beginning because a passenger failed to show up for the plane but his luggage was loaded on the plane. For security reasons, they had to find and unload his luggage before we could depart. We had a fairly smooth flight, but none of us really slept on the plane. Nevertheless, we were full of excitement when we arrived in London this morning a little after 7 a.m. London time.
