Road Trip to the Wild Side of Amarillo, Texas

When a conference took travel writers, Debi Lander and Judy Wells, to South Dakota, they decided to make the most out of it and took a road trip to Badlands National Park and Mount Rushmore. They kept track of their adventures on a joint blog called Good Girls in the Badlands. That was back in 2012, but the Good Girls continue to an annual road trip. This story, their latest road adventure, included a tour of Amarillo’s most curious sites, along with a visit to the World Ranch Rodeo Championship.  Read the story published on My Itchy Travel Feet here:

Saintly Connections in Lamego, Portugal

February 16, 2017 by · Leave a Comment 

I visited Lamego on the final day of my Viking cruise along the Douro River, called Portugal’s River of Gold. The production of wine has sustained the area for two thousand years and is considered its  golden currency.

A beautiful pilgrimage chapel rests atop a hill in Lamego fronted by a magnificent 684-step staircase. I encountered a nun in this chapel who guided me to treasures behind the main altar. I hope you will read my story as it appeared on the Boomers blog site: My Itchy Travel Feet.  Use this link to read the entire story:
