Travels from 2019 in pictures

Key West, Florida boasts the southernmest point in the United States--just 90 miles from Cuba.

As 2019 comes to an end, it’s fitting to ta ke time to look back at some of the travel adventures Larry and I were fortunate to have throughout 2019. We traveled internationally to countries including United Arab Emirates, Israel, Jordan, Egypt, and Italy. Here are photos highlighting those countries.

We also explored new areas in southwestern U.S. and revisited some of our favorite national parks and scenic sites. I'll share photos from those adventures in another post.

The following photos highlight a few of our special adventures from the first half of 2019.

One of the most spectacular buildings in the world, inside and outside, is the Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi. In addition to plenty of glitz inside, the structure features 82 domes and five pillars.
We visited may Biblical sites such as the baptismal rea of the Jordan River in Israel 
Construction of the pyramids of Giza, Egypt was a massive
and complex engineering feat at the time.
Petra, Jordan is an extraordinary relic, a city carved directly into mountainous rocks.

Even in foggy weather, the craggy cliffs and quint houses along the Almalfi Coast of Italy are a stunning sight.
