Hot Tub!
Welcome New Subscribers! 

I spent last weekend at my sister's house. She has a hot tub! We spent some time enjoying it each evening. We got all ready, then walked quickly through the icy cold weather to climb into the bubbling hot water. The only problem was that we had to get back out and walk through the cold again when we were finished. It was definitely worth it.
I've always been a fan of hot tubs.  I'm traveling on business this weekend and when I travel, I always try to find a hotel with a hot tub. 
My husband thinks I'm getting spoiled and that next, I'll want to get one for our deck. I might. I afraid that if I do, though, I won't appreciate hot tubs as much as I do now. They won't be special anymore.
I don't think I'll ever feel that way about travel. Every time that I plan a new trip, I get excited - even if I'm going somewhere I've been before. I don't always do the all same things or see the same sites because I don't want to repeat my previous trip. 
There is always something new to do, even if I'm visiting a familiar place. But there are also places that have become my favorites that I wouldn't want to miss. I mix new activities with familiar ones in order to keep travel fresh. And I will never run out of new places to go.
What new travel are you planning? Are you going some place that's familiar - or someplace new? Either way, have a great time!

This Week's Post:

Highlights of Berlin, Germany

When my family and I visited Berlin, Germany, we tried to see all the highlights in just three days. It is not impossible, but four or five days would have been better. We left, knowing we would like to return and spend more time in this interesting city.

I’ve grouped the highlights according to where they are located in the city. We’ll go from east to west, then southeast, and then further west. All of these highlights are within a two mile radius near the center of Berlin.

Berlin Cathedral

The Berlin Cathedral was finished in 1905. It was commissioned by William II, who wanted a large Protestant church, getting his inspiration from St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome...

Tokyo's Gardens, Temples, and Shrines

Tokyo, Japan, is the largest urban area in the world and hosts 26 of the 51 busiest train stations.  Shinjuku, coming in at number 1, was the station nearest the apartment that we rented during our recent visit to Japan.

To provide a respite for the busy-ness of the city, Tokyo has beautiful gardens, temples, and shrines.  The shrines and temples offer a spiritual experience, although it is much different than the religious experiences with which many of us are familiar.

Hama Rikyu Garden

We visited several gardens, temples and shrines in Tokyo and in the neighboring city of Kamakura.  On our first morning in Tokyo, we visited the Hama Rikyu Garden...
