In honor of National Pizza Day - a little somethin' to whet your whistle! What is your ultimate pie? Will you be celebrating today? 
#nationalpizzaday   #nyc   #pizza   #pizzalover   #food   #foodie   #foodporn  
if there is one food that screams New York from the top of the Empire State Building, it has got to be pizza. How did this happen? We didn’t know, but we do now.

Route 66 ends in a wonderful pier of Americana kitsch! Do you love kitsch as much as we do?

Have you ever wondered where Route 66 ends? Rather than dumping travelers into the Pacific Ocean, Santa Monica offered a better solution - a pleasure pier.

Yeap! I can add hundreds to the list and even lower costs. I really depends on the speed you travel. The faster you move the higher the costs. The key is if you have more time than money, you can go anywhere on the planet.

I’ve met amazing women through blogging and I wanted to end my Book Week by paying tribute to them and recommending some of the great books they’ve written, especially since they’re all non-fiction and many of you have requested suggestions in that genre. You now have a solid reading list to get the year started more »

Antwerp's a trip! A land of severed hands, giants, odd stone lions, and incredible beer… http://www.gypsynester.com/antwerp.htm

We went with +Viking River Cruises!

We looked up the many definitions of twerp - including some seriously weird ones - trying to find how this fabulous city got its name. Turns weirdest definition by far is the answer!

I believe that volunteering is the best way to get your empty nest groove on! 

#volunteer   #travel  
When the chicks fly the coop we lose the built-in community that comes with raising a brood. Gone are the sports team gatherings, the school plays and scout meetings. Entire peer groups disappear overnight. The phone calls requesting help sewing costumes, baking

We climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro and all we got was a lousy tee shirt!

#africa #travel #kilimanjaro #mountain #tanzania
We're talking about the biggest freestanding mountain in the world, rising over nineteen thousand feet! Fantastic waterfalls, wonderful people, fascinating legends, vile brew, an unusual apology and a very amicable Plan B awaited us on the slopes of Kilimanjaro

Dublin was a blast! We're now certified Guinness pourers (look at that perfect pint!) - and where exactly is David looking on the Molly Malone statue? 

#travel   #dublin   #guinness   #europe   #vacation   #food  
We didn't have a pot full o' time to discover Dublin, we had but a day to discover her charms. But we made the most of this fair city - we learned how to pour a perfect pint at the Guinness Academy, stormed her castle, ate native food, made a daring escape, and took a peek at Molly Malone

The story of how we met - hardly conventional! Good thing we didn't know the odds! 

#parenting #parents #family #emptynest #boomers #GoingGypsy
Have you ever wondered how we met? A one-night stand (not ours!), a beat-up old (heavy metal) car named the Sharkmobile, and the US Postal Service delivered a one-three punch we couldn't ignore. It might not be the most romantic story and, the odds most definitely were NOT in our favor, but
