I had no plans for 2015, yet I did a lot. The majority of which I cannot remember.

the Fasten Seatbelt sign has been turned on…

My trip to SFO begins on a Sunday with a 9 hour flight and 1 short layover in MIA. After a small upgrade at check in, to be more comfortable in cattle-class; the MIA-SFO leg is a bit longer and a little comfort (aka leg space) is MUCH appreciated, we leave the island.

Have Love, Will Travel

I have divided my adventure in about 8 chapters, yet to be written. Before I start, I want to share with you the most important part of the trip, entertainment, because conversations can only go so far. My road-trip songs, carefully selected and screened for this particular trip. It’s about 73 songs, not all to my liking but I do have a travel partner and he too needs something to listen, sing to….

I also have a sing-along playlist, that I will reveal at a later time. In the meantime, enjoy the music as I go and write my travel journey….

Here we go again….

It’s been months since my last post. Then again, that happens when you get caught up in life and the wrapped speed that everything moves nowadays…I even forget there for a minute that I had a plan and even worse a blog to tend to…

Sitting the night away behind my lovely  LULU, (or the iMac) selecting songs for my next trip and it hits me… I might as well write… and update my blog.

First things first… Continue reading Here we go again….
