Posted in , ,

I’m going to assume that you already know that Ireland has a reputation for, well, not the best weather. Rain, wind, more rain; you get the picture. But, when the sun comes out it can be warm and beautiful and, believe it or not, it does actually snow on occasion in the dead of winter.…

When I went on my Panama Canal cruise, one of the things I stressed about was what to pack. To start with, I wanted to travel carryon: it was easier, it was cheaper (my airfare didn’t include checked baggage), and I worried about what would happen if my luggage got lost when I was leaving…

Posted in , ,

 Let’s be honest, no matter your body size I think that one thing that all women can agree on is that shopping for swimsuits is not always fun.
