This is the travel page. But I like to imagine travel as ideal
vacations. I like planning, and I like going. To help with the going, I like
Travelocity, the internet travel
reservations and ticket agency. They are about as good as it comes for doing a great job
selling things online. Amazon, in book sales, is the
one other site that comes to mind. I use the Travelocity
search function for "3 Best Itineraries" in looking for the cheapest, most
convenient airline flights. (Click 'Book a Flight' on the Travelocity Home Page.)
|The most idyllic, enjoyable vacation I've already had, but would repeat
anytime, was our honeymoon to Tortola, in the British Virgin
Islands, in May, 1996. |
and this, Long Bay Beach Resort, is where
we stayed. Yes, I lived 20 feet from that beach for a week. What am I doing here, not
there? It is the second biggest resort on Tortola, but it is not more than 60 units.
It is a small, laid-back, friendly island. If you love the water and sun, sailing and
snorkeling- and you want to get away from American commercialism, try Tortola. And
go snorkeling with Frenchy and Claudia on the Patouche
II. They are the best people for making one welcome.
|Quebec City, Canada, and the countryside north of
it, were beautiful and very foreign, when we were there in August, 1995. Good food, fun

|My housemate cannot understand my attraction to the Netherlands. What can I
do to persuade her? Should I tell her that the freaky Frank Zappa-related
"St. Alphonzo's Pancake

wish. I think you can tour Virtual Finland. Click

|Just two more. They relate directly to another page in this web site, Darwin and Ancestors. Huh? Well,|
I've always wanted to go to the Galapagos
Islands, off the coast of Ecuador. When Darwin visited there
on the Beagle, he found the animal, bird and amphibian species, isolated 600
miles off the coast of mainland South America, had developed in special ways to fit their
unique environment. The Galapagos became a laboratory for Darwin, and stayed in his mind
as he formulated his Origin of the Species. Come to the Darwin
page to learn about Galapagos Giant Tortoises.
|My Joslin ancestors, names written as Jocelyn or Josselin or Joceline, came from Brittany, in western France.|
Of course, I want to go there, but the first stop is Paris.
Then on to the ancestral chateau, and the Ancestors.
