Jackson Square, French Quarter and Riverwalk

To really jump back into time though, a visit to Jackson Square in the French Quarter is a must. Houses built in the 1850’s line one side of the square while quaint shops are directly across the park. Along the waterfront, restaurants follow the street and in the early mornings, you are greeted with the … Continue reading »

New Orleans Skyline

New Orleans was the scene of a weekend trip that Pan and I took in January of 1977. We stayed in room 3922 of the Marriott hotel (I remembered to write down the number, how cool is that?). Both Pan and I enjoyed getting up early (okay, I enjoyed getting up early) to stroll through … Continue reading »

Medieval Times = Dinner and Show

Medieval Times was the meeting up place for Bug, Brains, Pan and I one year when we were visiting in Orlando one year. We had such a good time that is only seemed right that we should make reservations for dinner and the show here again so that Daughter could experience it. And am I … Continue reading »

Epcot, an enjoyable Date to Remember

Our trek through the Epcot promenade  and World Showcase brought us face to face with many new and old friends. Goofy and a French clown come foremost to mind, but there were others who made an impression as well.

Universal Studios Orlando & the Marx Brothers

Daughter and I had a delightful trip to Universal Studios Orlando in 1996. Whilst Pan was in his conferences, she and I took off for the theme park, bright and early one morning. Although the Marx Brothers and King Kong dominated our visit, we managed to run into (from one spectrum of time to the … Continue reading »

Museums in Orlando are worth the trip

The museums of Orlando were the first stop on our trek this go around. Pan and I brought our Daughter with us this time and just as well, since the Bug was busy and could not make it up to spend time with us on this trip in 1996. But who could blame here as … Continue reading »

Leu Gardens in Orlando and a tip

At Leu Gardens, the Bug and I got to spend some much needed sister time. Soon we would not have the opportunity to go exploring, just the two of us. But then that is a whole new adventure awaiting us. It is such a beautiful and serene place. I imagine that the weddings that take … Continue reading »

Disney IllumiNations and Spectro Magic

An evening at Disney’s Epcot, then another evening at the Magic Kingdom. Wish I knew then, what I know now about taking pictures at night. But then I would have needed a better camera too. All in all, the pictures didn’t turn out half bad and still bring back memories of a week well spent. … Continue reading »
