It’s time for Christmas parties again... Where did the time go? Another year, another journal full of stories... Of all the things in life, I never thought I would lose my eyesight. People ask me how I keep going, and although it has not been easy and many times I wanted to give up, I concentrate on what I DO have and not what I DON’T have. Despite only having one eye, I still work. I still travelled in the past year from London to France, Washington DC to Florida, Los Angeles to Vegas and Cancun, Cannes, Nice, Antibes, San Tropez, and soon Prague, Vienna, Budapest and London again... Half the time I couldn’t read the signs and a few times I tripped and fell... As a travel agent I always hear clients saying ‘my husband just got diagnosed with cancer so we are finally going to travel’... Good thing I didn’t wait to do all the things I wanted. I can’t ride a scooter anymore (so I hired a guy in Antibes to drive me around) I can’t ride a bike (but they say it’s possible), driving is limited, walking sometimes is easier with a cane, and I am too scared to go hiking or scuba diving anymore... still, I met Dan Crenshaw right after he became a Houston congressman and he told me how served two tours of duty as a Navy Seal with one eye and said he even jumped out of a plane with a parachute. What an inspiration! All the people who helped me, encouraged me and gave me hope Thank You and Merry soon to be Christmas! I promise this next year to be the inspiration all of you have been for me ❤️

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! #happythanksgivingday

Vietnam Vet memorial in DC is a must see. Here a Vietnam vet tells his story to the much younger Afghanistan vet from across the pond. While a bunch of nutters were screaming at the steps of the Supreme Court, the real story was happening here. #vietnamveteran #visitwashingtondc #washingtondclife #vietnamwarvet #vietnamwarmemorial #realheroes #weloveourveteran #warstories #reallife #nofilter #realpeople💎

Lincoln = ‘Big fellow, Big Head, Big Chair’ 😅 Fun day in DC so much better with my super sidekick Gee... too bad the ‘riots’ on capitol hill were boring ‘low energy’ nutjobs ... still @cappature loved it! at #lincolnmemorial #lincolnmemorialreflectingpool #washingtondc🇺🇸 #travelstories #travelguide #travelwashingtondc #funtrip #teamtravelers #lovethisguy #funnybrits

The real story was the vets at the Vietnam War Memorial who come every year to lay a wreath at the wall so no one will ever forget. I asked them to tell me their story. ‘I was 18 when I went to Vietnam. We were spit on when we came back. They called us baby killers. We went into hiding. We are not hiding anymore.’ The whole monument has an energy that brings you to tears. Nobody kneels. #washingtondc #vietnammemorial #vietnamwar #vietnamwarmemorial #veteransmemorial #veteranstories #washingtonmemorial #lovemyveterans #hereos #heroesofwar #warmemorial

Washington DC is a place I go every four months... Every trip I find new magic. The history and scenery is stunning. This time I was there by accident for the Kavanaugh fiasco. While the media crowded around a small group of nutjobs, real life was happening elsewhere. Ducks in the reflection pond were just one of those things that were way more interesting. #reflectionpond #washingtonmonument #washingtonmonuments #visitwashingtondc #washingtondc🇺🇸
