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.

Scotland/Ireland 2012

My mother has been doing geneology research for as long as I can remember. She knows that her family descends from Scotland/Ireland/England. She has been to England and her heart's desire was to go to Scotland and Ireland, the other lands of her ancestors. Danny has made her dreams come true and we are on our way to Scotland and Ireland. We have also traced dad's family back to Ireland (Malone) and Danny has Scottish blood (McCormick) as well so I can truly say that we are all going back to the land of our ancestors. Our travel day started in Baton Rouge. I believe in playing things safe and I had originally scheduled our flight to depart with a four hour layover in Dallas before our international flight. American Airlines cancelled and then rescheduled our flight out of Baton Rouge giving us only an hour and a half before the flight. Shortly before we were to board, we discovered that weather in Dallas had delayed our flight coming in so we were now an hour late going out. Things weren't looking well for our international connection. Then after we were completely boarded on the plane, they announced that we would be delayed on the Tarmac for 40 more minutes. The pilot was MAD! We made it to Dallas and Danny ran ahead to our international connection. We made it with 5 min to spare, and were assured that international passengers are not allowed to travel separate from their luggage so we just knew our luggage would arrive when we did. Somehow we weren't even surprised when we arrived at baggage claim in Glasgow, Scotland to discover that it was on the plane that travelled behind us. Off to the hotel we went to check in, check out the town center, and hope that our luggage showed up. I am having Internet issues and can't post photos right now, but I will as soon as I am able.
