European Trip

In late September Jim and I flew to Ireland for a week on the Emerald Isle.   FABULOUS.   Jim has been trying to get me to Ireland for years.   I resisted and now sorry I did.   I can’t wait to go back this summer and see even more of this amazing country.   Here’s some videos on our trip (click on the blue links for each video.


After Ireland we flew to Rome, Italy to board Holland America’s newest ship, the Nieuw Statendam.   Our spiritual teacher, Dr. Joe Dispenza, hosted 800 people on this ship where we attended 10 workshops with Dr. Joe and made several shore excursions.   Monte Carlo and Florence were scratched from the shore excursions due to high seas, but instead we stopped at the Island of Corsica.   Corsica has been owned by both France and Italy throughout history, and is now French.   Napoleon Bonaparte was born here and you’ll see his home in this iMovie.


We loved Corsica and have decided to spend 2-3 months there and on to Ireland for another 2-3 months.   We’re leaving San Miguel de Allende, Mexico where we have been for the last 2 years.   We’re ready for a new adventure and learning a new language.  They speak both French and Italian on Corsica, but not much English.   First, we’re going to our home in Boquete, Panama (which is on the market) to finish a construction project downstairs at the house.  We’ll be there for a couple of months before heading off the Europe for 4-5 months.  We’ve rented our second home in Boquete, to a wonderful single woman, and we have a live-in caretaker in the big house….so we’re free to go to Corsica.

Stay tuned…..more to come
