Ready, Set, Jet!
Hi! How are you?
If you are bored and want a blast of travel goodness, scenery from the southwest and picture of critters, I got you. Check out my "shorts" playlist for that and more random goodness!
Most clips are under 30 seconds and should shift your mood and maybe even inspire you to travel.
Its HOT outside...
I am currently in south Texas (I came for the heat wave it would seem) and while I was riding the lift with another traveler their parting words were, "Welcome to HELL!" They weren't talking about the hotel (Its okay) the heat though was breaking records...

How are things? I hope all is well in your world.
I was out running errands this morning and stopped at a store to grab a case of water. While I was looking for it I walked down a housewares aisle and a pillow (jumped) fell out off the shelf. I'm taking it as a sign that good things and amazing adventure are on the way!
Have you ever had that happen?
No one was in the aisle and I didn't bump or brush against it. Odd, right?
I'm sure the travel Gods are trying to send me a message - I'm going to start packing...
Have a great weekend
Now the temperature is rising its time for Slushies! Try this simple (and delicious) Mango Slushy today!
Frozen Mango Slushy
This delicious, refreshing frozen slushy does not require any added sweetener thanks to a healthy dose of fresh (or frozen) mango and orange juice. A small amount of fresh lime juice adds just the right amount of tanginess to balance out the sweeter flavors.
Prep time: 10 minutes. Cook time: n/a
2 ripe mangoes, peeled and cubed (or 2½ c. frozen mango)
¼ c. fresh lime juice
¾ c. fresh orange juice
½ c. water
8-10 large ice cubes
4 short fresh rosemary spears, bottom leaves removed
12 small fresh mango chunks
How are things?
Hope all is well in your world. I had business in Roswell at the end of April so we made a quick trip. There was no "touristing" this time, as it was a short visit.
Roswell actually have a lot to see. From the lake to the alien tours, it a nice place to visit.
+ I really do love the kookiness of the city. They do embrace the alien theme and celebrate it!
Most of the hotels are clustered together -- I looked at vacation rentals but it was a last minute trip and they were all booked up.
You know my love for Roswell :o
(To look at alien pictures and other fun Roswell stuff click here.) So when I saw a walking challenge come up for Roswell I was hooked!
This challenge was 44 miles or 77 KM. I did it in February and really enjoyed the interactive pictures and timelines the Pacer App included in the challenge. I also made of note of a couple of new places to visit!
And here is my newest medal:
I'm currently working on the next challenge. It's Casablanca and I should be finished in about a week. It is 67.1 miles and I've walked 35 miles so far. It also comes with a medal.
I have other walking/step counting apps BUT Pacer have been the most motivational. I talk to people every day (all over the world) we congratulate each other on our progress and encourage each other. After dealing with long haul covid I NEEDED this additional support and it really has made a difference. So if you want to get more active and find a community of supportive people I highly recommend this app.
See you on Pacer for the next challenge?
