For many years, I (Pamela) have been making travelogues when we take our trips.  They started as emails & then I changed to Blogs.  Each of the travelogues have more pictures than words.  Without spending an extrodiant amount of time with editing, I have saved them.  In case you need something to put you to sleep at night or if you are planning a trip to somewhere we've been & want to have an idea about what you might find there, I am trying to get them all posted with a little explanation about each trip.
