It’s All Maya!

If Life is an illusion, then why do I keep banging my head against the wall?

Si la Vie est une illusion, pourquoi je n'arrête pas de me taper la tête sur les murs?

Final Stop: Lima, Peru

January 14th, 2017 · By Lynn

Most of the information I had read about Lima on the internet was, “Don’t waste your time going to Lima.” But how could we not? After traveling so far, we couldn’t just pass up Lima like it was some small town instead of the capital of Peru. Patrick and I decided to spend five days […]

December 31st, 2016 · By Lynn

The Plaza de Armas, Cusco. Patrick and I had headed straight to the Sacred Valley before attempting to visit Machu Picchu or spending any time in Cusco. Slow and steady was our motto and it’s the best way to adapt to the altitude. By the time we arrived in Cusco a week later, we had […]

Aguas Calientes, A Stepping-Stone To Machu Picchu

November 27th, 2016 · By Lynn

Getting off the train, our first look at Aguas Calientes. The Statue of Inka with the symbolic condor and puma. After a few days in Ollantaytambo, Patrick and I headed to Aguas Calientes. I had read that A.C. was a town that was under-whelming and overpriced. A place you had to be if you wanted […]

Peru Here We Come!

November 10th, 2016 · By Lynn

  Part One: Ollantaytambo First of all, let me say, this was the best trip I had ever taken. The reason wasn’t only the gorgeous scenery of the Andes Mountains, or our lifelong dream of seeing Machu Picchu, but in large part it was due to the people of Peru. They were the nicest people […]

What’s Going On?

July 15th, 2016 · By Lynn

A beautiful rendition to the 1971 song, What’s Going On (sung by Marvin Gaye back then) that talked about all the problems that were going on in the world. Unfortunately, it’s even more fitting today in 2016. (Lyrics at the end of my post.) What’s going on? It’s a question I keep asking myself more […]

I Admit I’m Addicted To The Two Cs – Crack Cocaine? No, Candy Crush!

July 10th, 2016 · By Lynn

I can’t stop playing. Is there a rehab where I can slowly withdraw? Or a Candy Crush Anonymous where I can stand up and say, “Yes, I’m addicted.” I don’t think so, but if there were I’m sure Patrick would’ve sent me to one of those places by now. The whole addiction came about slowly. […]
