Wow!!!…what can I say about Tulum.  It’s one of the most unique Mayan sites I’ve visited so far (of six).  It’s on the Eastern coast of Mexico.  As usual I don’t want to get into the nitty-gritty details of the Continue reading Tulum

Museum of Flight

Today was day one of ‘Tour Seattle’ and it included a visit to the Museum of Flight at Boeing Field.  I’ll admit this was not on my bucket list, and even after going there it didn’t get added.  The quality Continue reading Museum of Flight
