Hanging On

For the Ride

This quote reminds me of the cat poster where the cat is hanging from the branch with the saying, “Hang In There”! 

Hang on to your hat. Hang on to your hope.

And wind the clock, for tomorrow is another day. ~E.B. White

I love the writing of E.B. White! Charlotte’s Web and Stuart Little were favorite reads growing up. I enjoyed reading about the adventures Stuart would get up to or more like in to, especially with Snowbell the cat. I loved the friendship between Wilbur the pig and Charlotte the barn spider in Charlotte’s Web. Charlotte’s Web was a unique as well as sad story to me as a child and I did not fully understand it until I was older. Adventuring is Better with Friends or More Like Partners In Crime – ha!

Rolling Along

Escapes, Adventures, Travels

Most of my readers get me, so for the rest of you just go with me on this post!

A Story . . .

I remember purchasing my 1st rolling suitcase. I had to have the massive, mid-range priced one out there at the time! This was before airlines started charging for bags. Of course on one trip to a tropical island paradise my rolling suitcase was not there waiting for me. I was told too big and not enough room left in the cargo hold, so my rolling suitcase would be on the next plane or the next plane or the next plane!

I learned 3 valuable lessons on that trip! #1 Purchase a smaller rolling suitcase. #2 Pack a change of clothes in your carry on. #3 Does everyone own a black rolling suitcase!

I remember purchasing my 2nd rolling suitcase. I have had many escapes, adventures and travels with my much smaller companion! I sorta wish the roller came with a mileage counter, so I knew exactly the amount of miles I have put on throughout the years. It is still in pretty good shape for all the journeys it has been on with me. It is like a familiar shadow rolling behind me!


Have you given much thought to the meaning of a suitcase? Be it Empty to Filled to the Brim and Everything in between. The possibilities of a suitcase are endless, especially one that rolls! Escapes, Adventures, Travels . . . Moves . . . Storage.

Is your suitcase ready to go or collecting dust? I see an escape in your future, so get packing and go! Remember to shake the dust off the baggage every once in a while. It will do a body and mind GOOD!

I travel, adventure and explore every chance I can ESCAPE! I love the freedom; no norm, no schedule, no alarm. I enjoy doing what I want to do or at least feel like doing! I have to break free of 40 hour work weeks, especially when you are in for 20+ years.

Never Enough

I was that child that was rarely satisfied and wanted MORE of just about everything! I was great at 20 questions and could pretty much play all day long. I was curious and loved to explore and use my imagination. I still do!

I am always up for a Great Escape! I love to travel, crave adventure and enjoy exploring. I have dreams of giving up the 9 to 5 and just traveling for the rest of my life. That would be Great, right!

The travel bug bit me early on in my life! I crave it even more now. I am so lucky to travel at least once a month, but at times it is still never enough! Well I have to go and escape now. See Ya Out There!

Adventure Awaits People – Get Out There!!!

Travel Confession #1

I am one of “those people”! I either have the camera at the ready or strapped around my neck. I scream “TOURIST” when I travel! I can easily take 600 captures in one trip.

Travel Confession #2

DO NOT ask me to navigate, you will NEVER get there and if you do you will be STRESSED OUT and maybe a little pissed off too! I drive Mr. Craves to the brink literally on road trips. You really want me to freak remove or change a landmark that I use for navigation. Good Luck with having me as your passenger navigator!

Travel Confession #3

This traveler makes frequent stops, so do not follow me too closely! If there is a winery or a brewery or something local going on, I will be stopping to check it out. Love Scenic Overlooks & Anything Out of the Norm! Sometimes it is the journey and sometimes it is the destination that makes a trip memorable.
