About Me

When I started my retirement travels - the first of which was my solo overseas trip to Italy in 2009 - I wanted a way to share it with family and friends as it happened. Hence, "My Travel Journal". However I realized I wouldn't always be on a trip and wondered what to do with the blog in between times. My daughter pointed out, wisely, that travels can also include trips to the kitchen to try a new recipe, trips to visit family, trips to my neighborhood Starbucks, or a fun day trip with a friend. You're welcome to join me on any of these journeys!

P.S. I've set up separate pages for each of my major trips (see tabs above).

I recently added an "Italian Word a Day" thingie which shows up at the bottom of every page. You see the word and can click to hear it pronounced. I've been enjoying it and I think my accent is improving as time goes by.

Just correcting a big mistake!

I've mentioned a couple of times the 144 remaining Art Deco metro stops.  Well, I was reading my guidebook again this morning and find that the original number of these stops was 141 (don't know why I thought 144) and...there are "only a few survivors".  So, that makes me even happier that I've found two of them.  I should Google and see if I can find where the others are - maybe look them up.  My book also says that one is at the Museum of Modern Art in NYC.  Something for your next trip, Chris? 

Scroll on down for my latest trip report.

...Maybe I saw the museum one in NYC, not DC... They are spectacular. I wish we (ie, society) still engaged artists in creating our public works - particularly monumental ironwork!
