15 years – First time I went to New York City
8 years – Last time I went to New York City
Conclusion – It’s been way too long since I last went to New York City!
It’s almost time for our local Renaissance festival, Scarborough. Time to get out your bodices and codpieces, and party like it’s 1599!
Oh, how I dream of sleeping in this bed again! One of the most enjoyable hotels I’ve ever stayed in, and definitely worth a trip back sometime soon.
The Hotel Villa Convento is housed in a historic French Quarter building that was once the infamous House of the Rising Sun. And as an added bonus to our New Orleans experience, as soon as we walked out of the hotel, there was a street performer singing the famous song.
So if you’re ever in New Orleans, stay the night in this wonderful hotel.
I don’t like being cooped up. I’m bored. SOMEBODY PLEASE FLY ME TO THE BAHAMAS!!!!!!!!!!
Well, it looks like the husband and I will not be headed to Oklahoma this weekend due to alarming winter weather forecasts. But hopefully soon. I need to get my gamble on.
I am watching Nova’s episode of “Ghosts of Murdered Kings” tonight. I remember when I went to Ireland about eight years ago. While there, I saw the Bog People in a museum in Dublin. It was interesting how well preserved they were. Also interesting was the fact that they and I were wearing the same type of shoes! The only pair of shoes I took to Ireland were my Renaissance moccasins. Coincidentally, they are based on the shoes that the Bog People wore. I looked at their feet, and then down at my own. Then back at their feet. For a brief moment, I felt connected to these people and to their history.
