NYC, London & New Orleans – Here I come!

Gone Traveling Thought I’d better let folks know that I’m off doing what travel writers love best: traveling! Over the next several weeks, the hubby and I will be hitting up NYC, Long Island, London, Barcelona, Cartagena, Cadiz, Ponta Delgada and New Orleans. Plus, we’re taking the slow way home – a transatlantic cruise. Internet access on cruises is the worst of all worlds: it’s not just slow, it’s pricey. As a result, my ability to respond to blog comments and emails is going to be pretty iffy until our return, November 15th. However, not only do we have a…

Review: Behind the Screams at Moxley Manor Haunted House

Moxley Manor’s rooms, corridors and cubbyholes are spread across 6,000 square feet.

Kensal Green: a Historic Victorian Graveyard in London

Earlier this week, I wrote an article called Visiting Kensal Green Cemetery in London for The Traveler’s Way. As often happens, researching an article renews my interest in the site, and makes me want to visit again! I always end up learning way more information than the article’s word count can fit, and when using my own photos, I wind up with extras that I wish I could have shared. This time around, I figured, “Hey, why not post a few of those extra photos on my blog?” So here you go, gentle reader. The Magnificent Seven Kensal Green Cemetery…
