Stay on Track!

I love riding the train. I take time when traveling on lengthy trips to catch at least one. It is a great way to slow down, see the countryside, costs less money, and meet new people. It also forces me to pack light! It’s not fun to have to carry large pieces of luggage on and off a train. So stay on track! Trains can be very comfortable. Book one today. It can be quite an adventure!

Honey; One Sweet Commodity

Do you know what food never spoils? Suspenseful music….why HONEY of course! Also, if you buy honey that comes from hives in your neighborhood, it can help with allergies as the bees get their nectar from local flowers. You also have the added benefit of supporting your local economy.

I recently watched a wonderful documentary, “Honeyland”, about bee colonies and honey, about how “inferior” honey is being illegally imported into the country and the black-market surrounding hives. Please note the article below. It talks about how honey is such a vital part of our lives and most people have no idea. It is so important that we save our bee colonies and the long-range ramifications if we don’t.

What are you thankful for?

I’m always thankful for my good health. I watched a story today about a guy from Arizona who came to NY to help with the fight against the Coronavirus. He is so amazing. He is 29 and they call him Nurse Ian (Youngblood). While in NY he was getting terrible headaches and eventually had an MRI. He has brain cancer. I wanted to share his inspirational story and I decided to make a small donation to a Go Fund Me page for him. Here is the link for the GoFundMe page and to the Today Show story. If you can, this might be a great way to support one of our many brave front line workers and first responders. Have a great day and stay safe!

Do you have a favorite excuse for not exercising?

I didn’t always enjoy exercising myself. It was an acquired taste if you will. I now really, really miss going to the gym and have had to be more creative on getting my much-needed level of activity. My knees are not the best so instead of running, I walk and lift 3-pound weights in a series of upper body movements. I raise my heart rate while toning my arms. It is a win-win!

So, what’s your excuse? Imagine you are responding to yourself from a more fit perspective and how would you remove that barrier. Then, get up off the couch and get moving.

I would love to hear how things work out for you. Here is a link to follow.

Have you ever had to change your plans?

So, I was supposed to be in Europe on my 2-1/2 months trip of a lifetime to 12 different countries. I was to be in Austria today and of course, with COVID 19, I had to cancel. So instead of being down about it, I did some research and found sites where you can get virtual tours from locals in the area and I had scheduled to get cooking lessons in the homes of local residents and make some traditional meals. I am instead looking at virtual tours and cooking some foods indigenous to the area. Its been fun. Give it a try, you can have a great time. Bon Jour!

Resources: When I had to cancel all my reservations with Airbnb, they were awesome! I also like to help out local tour guides and families that with the tourist business down, they can really use the money and you get a more personalized approach. I would like to encourage you to check out their various virtual tours and in-home experiences. They are fabulous!

There is one site called “” that looks interesting too.

This site gives virtual tour ideas too”

Solo Travel

I enjoy traveling alone. As a woman, I do take extra measures to be sure I am safe and am smart about it. I don’t drink alcohol as it can impair your judgment. I make sure I know where I am going and do let my family know where I will be staying and on what dates. I don’t rent a room in someone’s home (Airbnb) but instead, rent an apartment where I have my own bathroom and separate entrance. Here is an article giving reasons for why it is a great idea for women to experience traveling alone. Of the reasons given in this article, I find #4 to be the most compelling for me. I like going where I want, when I want and to eat what I want. It is very liberating.

This is from


Imagine this — as a woman living in the millennial era, you get to be a solo traveller, exploring places on the map without any restraint, jumping from country to country and meeting new people without having to hear the words,

“Will you be okay? You’re a woman. It’s dangerous for you to travel solo.”
“Are you sure you want to travel alone? Isn’t that sad?”
“Oh, really? You travel on your own? Don’t you have any friends?”

What a concept.

There is this idea that when a woman travels, she should be with someone just for her to be secured and to enjoy the trip. Let’s admit it, we face more judgments and issues when it comes to travelling solo compared to men. There are various misconceptions that a woman who travels solo has to deal with. The most common one is that we travel alone because we are broken and lonely.

Let me tell you this — not all of those who wander are lost. There are some women who travel to forget, to catch their breath, to feel again or to heal. But there are also those who travel to experience different cultures, to expand their knowledge, to connect with Mother Nature or to challenge their selves to explore the world out of their comfort zones.

Yes, travelling with friends or family is fun. But travelling solo will definitely open doors for you that you don’t even know existed. Trust me, you will be surprised. Are you still hesitating? Well, here’s what I can tell you — we, women, can travel anywhere we want, anytime we want, on our own. Here are compelling reasons why you should try being a solo traveller.

1. It will bring you closer to your true self

They say that we have a different “self” that we show when we are with our friends, family and our significant other. As we are used to having people around us, there are instances that we forget who we are when no one is around. Travelling on your own is a great opportunity to connect with your inner self. You will get to know the person inside of you. You will discover your desires, or even realise your true purpose in life. We, as women, should prioritise understanding ourselves better because it will lead us to reach unconditional self-love.

2. It will teach you to enjoy your own company

We are living in a world where there is a stigma in being alone or doing things alone. Have you ever experienced seeing somebody eating alone and you said to yourself — “No one should be eating by himself. That’s so sad.”

I do understand where this is coming from. Women, by nature, are more social beings in comparison to men. I know a lot of women who want to travel but their plans just remained as that — plans. The usual reason is that they don’t have anyone to accompany them. Sounds familiar?

Travelling alone will make you realise that being alone and enjoying your time with yourself is not a bad idea.

3. It will challenge you to get out of your comfort zone

I remember reading one article that says taking risk is a masculine trait, and that men, in general, take greater risks than women. This is also the reason why some women prefer to stay in their comfort zones.

It’s understandable to bask in the comfort of something familiar. But too much comfort will prevent further development of ourselves.

Pushing yourself to experience things outside your comfort bubble is one of the best things you can do. Remind yourself that you should never settle for less. The world is big. You should be exploring everything that it has to offer. Taking a step outside of the world that you are used to will make you more independent and will help you grow as an individual.

4. You will have 100% control

While travelling with other people, have you experienced being held back on where you want to go, where you want to eat or even when to rest? Travelling solo will remove any hassle of following people who are travelling with you. You will get to decide what you want to do during your trip without anyone complaining.

Be the girl boss! Having total control will surely give you more stress-free time. The only person you need to consider during your trip is yourself.

It’s okay to feel a little scared when you’re travelling solo. But we must learn to take a step and conquer our fears. So to every woman reading, this is to remind you that you are capable of reaching your heart’s desire. You just need to take a step and enjoy the ride.
