Here we are, it is the season of giving! Happy Holidays, regardless of what you celebrate! My family has a history of a BIG Christmas, and no, my relatives were not rich. The packages were always piled high, regardless of how much money was spent. Even a paper doll set was a huge excitement if […]
So many of my readers say they could never dive, but actually…you can, at least vicariously! I am so happy that many appear to enjoy my photos and my endless enthusiasm for all things aquatic, but on this wordless Wednesday, enjoy the dive with me. Take 2 minutes and sit back. Relax. It’s all good.
Villa Blanca is a reef north of the cruise ship port, and one does not see many dive boats in the area. Most of the “dramatic” dive sites are in the south, so Villa Blanca gets much less credit than it deserves. Villa Blanca is a wall dive, filled with sponges and soft corals rather […]
Travel is good for you. I believe that simple truth, and there is no dearth of literature to support it. However, there can be a downside: illness. My parents liked to travel, and they took my brother and I on the road to Florida every year of our childhood…until flying became the way to go. […]

Randy and I decided a trip to Cozumel was in order after our daughter’s wedding on October 3. The plan was to relax, and enjoy the Caribbean. The plan came to fruition. The first week I went diving with Albatros Charters, a great company with three boats. They will do dive trips, snorkeling trips, and […]
How do you define an Amazing Woman? There are so very many definitions, and through my Wednesday posts, you have met several women whom I find amazing, for all kinds of different reasons. The first profile of an amazing woman on Travels with Tam was Ruth Curran, who is a traumatic brain injury survivor, blogger at […]
Why haven’t I blogged in a whole week? My car broke down and I was stuck for a week waiting for a tow truck? I’m in Mexico and the internet has been down? (that one is true, actually!) My dog ran away and I’ve been chasing him? What other lame excuse can I come up […]
What a crazy year! Most of my years seem to be crazy…are yours crazy too? My son married in May, and my daughter married just two weeks ago! The weddings were both wonderful, and friends and family joined us for both, which is always a blessing. Now…perhaps some relaxation? Well, that is sort of the plan. […]
