Quebec & New York City Plans

Well, I waffled all over the place this year. To those who don’t realize, I have my own small tradition going. For the past seven New Years I’ve been in another country when the proverbial ball dropped to usher in a new...

Temple to Kukulcan in the Yucatan - Chichen Itza

Mexico – Belize – And A Gift!

This may be old news for some but after a ton of to and fro, I finally selected a destination for my annual New Years wander!  And I think I’ve pretty much given up any secret on that one in the title...

New Years 2010 Deciphered

Since I’ve been in my own little world lately, I figured I should get in at least one blog update before rushing off for my 6th New Years abroad.  In this order, the past five were Edinburgh’s Hogmanay street party, Rome’s Piazza...

Well, I’ve been debating this one for quite awhile. I kept waffling.  I discovered that I had built up a pile of points with my American Express card over the past few years.  It helps that up until this month, I could...
