Highlights from a day in Calgary, Canada

Calgary airport after a 14 hour travel day. We did get out of west coast Florida a day before Hurricane Ian hit and closed the airports. Hoping our home, little Harry and all of our friends and family will be safe and OK
Easy walking city

We had a fun day just walking around and checking out the city. Lunch in Chinatown was authentic and delicious.

We arrived a day early for our tour with My1fitlife adventure group so having time to explore on our own was great. The next day we found a spa and scheduled massages. They offered Thai massages so I requested one. I remember all the stretching from my time in Thailand and looked forward to it. It was great but a lot more pressing on pressure points than I remember. All good.

Next stop Banff and Lake Louise.


At the age of 51 I unexpectedly became a widow. For the first 6 months after my husband died, I was in shock and numb. I journaled and with the help of friends, family and therapists was able to get back to living my old life, even if it is now very different. Before I was married, I had spent a semester in England and backpacked around Europe. My husband and I moved from New York to California for 8 years and started a family. Travelling took a back seat to raising a family and going to work everyday. Since the loss of my husband I have visited a lot of places with family and friends and took a solo trip to Thailand. I am enjoying sharing my stories and adventures as well as some of my insights to how I am traveling the path of being a widow. I hope to share my stories and adventures as well as some thoughts on being a middle aged widow. While I have some great experiences traveling to Thailand and cruising to Central America, some of my adventures involve a trip to see a Broadway show in nearby Manhattan and a shopping trip at Bed, Bath and Beyond. If I can inspire anyone to go out and continue to live a good life that would be my greatest accomplishment.
