Underground Cities Around the World
Living in Colorado for a few years now I have heard some of the controversies about whether Denver has an underground city. I did some searching and couldn’t find anything concrete, however, I did find quite a bit of information about other cities around the world that do have underground cities. Thus, I decided to share this information and hope you may find it interesting too. If you know of or want to share other underground cities, please feel free to share in the comments below.
Serendipity 3 – Upper East Side New York Restaurant
While in New York City we ate a quite a few nice restaurants, but there was one that I really had wanted to visit while in the city, Serendipity 3. I had heard a lot about this renowned Upper Eastside restaurant and thought it would be fun to visit and try one of their famous Frozen Hot Chocolate drinks. I have to say I love their definition of Serendipity: the art of making happy discoveries or finding the unexpectedly pleasant by chance or sagacity. They also state that they are more than a mere coffee shop, more of an ice cream parlor on steroids, Serendipity has been synonymous with fun. Since September 14, 1954, its menu of outrageous desserts and fun food, served in a Manhattan townhouse amid exuberant Victorian decorations, has charmed children and their parents, not to mention celebrities from Marilyn Monroe, Andy Warhol, and Beyonce. Sadly we didn’t see any famous people while we were there, but we did have a great time with a New Yorker friend that I use to work with.

Cruising – Some of The Best Cruising Options for the 55+ Club
With Spring officially beginning on Sunday, people may be making plans for a spring or summer cruise. Gene and I have only been on one 3-day 2-night cruise once, so we are definitely not seasoned cruisers. However, now that we are both officially in the 55+ club, it may be time to do some cruising. I did some research and there are wide selections of cruises available. Even after doing some research, picking the right one can seem overwhelming and a bit taxing. There are many things to consider when picking a cruise that doesn’t just include the destination. You also have to think about the duration of the cruise, activities aboard the ship, as well as activities on land. Continue reading “Cruising – Some of The Best Cruising Options for the 55+ Club”
Wyoming State Capitol – The Equality State
On our continued quest to visit all 50 capitol buildings, we decided to stop on our road trip to Billings, MT in May of 2021 to check out the Wyoming State Capitol in Cheyenne. We had been through the capitol many years ago (long before we moved her to CO 15 years ago) but recently it had been closed for renovations. It was actually closed for over four years. I had driven by it with my nephew when we went to Cody, Wyoming to show him, but it was still closed. They are still only doing self-guided tours thanks to the idiot in China XI Jinping, but at least we were able to take a tour ourselves. It is very beautiful inside and out.

Wichita, Kansas – Fun Things to do in the Heart of the Country
We are heading to Wichita, Kansas right now as I am sharing this post! Yeah, I know, not the first thing on people’s mind when they think of where they want to travel, but we are taking a road trip and decided to check out this little city that we have mostly only breezed through while going east or coming home. With that said, I did some research and found some of the most exciting things to see and do in Wichita. We are both looking forward to exploring a few of these while in the area for the long weekend. Here are seven things I found and they are not in any particular order:

LAX Traffic – Avoid the Worst of the LA Freeways to get to LAX Airport
We were currently in LA for the holidays and I remembered why we moved out of Southern CA, THE TRAFFIC, especially on the LA Freeways. It royally sucks, no other way to say it. With this in mind, I asked Gene to write up a short post about getting back to the airport while avoiding some of the most horrible LAX Traffic on the freeways – aka parking lots, lol. He was a courier in the LA area for almost 18 years and drove at least 50, 000 – 60,000 miles a year on these congested freeways. Thus, he has had a lot of experience trying to avoid the daily backups. Please let us know if you have any questions.

The Way – An Emotional Must See Travel Movie
Recently Gene and I finally had a chance to watch the movie The Way. I had heard it was very good, and we were not disappointed. Then again, I shouldn’t have been surprised. It was written and directed by Emilio Estevez, and starred his father Martin Sheen. Emilio also starred as Daniel, the recently deceased son of Martin Sheen’s character named Tom.
