I was born and raised in Chicago and still live here. I have a great job, a wonderful family and friends, and a very special man in my life who travels with me on my incredible journey through life.
I am happy and thankful for the blessings in my life. I attribute my spiritual journey as the foundation and then meeting Dave, who is loving, caring, and attentive, as the key to maintaining my "life is good attitude".
We travel often and have visited fabulous, magical places. I hope to bring some of that magic to these pages with photos, suggestions and tips and to share stories of people and places that we have been fortunate to meet and visit. I will also try to share the history of places I visit. This is the best part of my writing, as I also learn new and fascinating facts about the places and sights I have seen.
Our country is beautiful. People are intriguing. The world is fascinating. Vicarious traveling doesn't cost a cent. In addition to preparing us for our real travels, it also connects us with the one thing that makes traveling so special - other people and places.
Please feel free to send any travel photos or stories to me that you would like to share so I can add them to this Travel Page. There are so many places I have never visited but I would love to see and read about through your eyes.
Follow more of my travel photos on Instagram - the Photo Sharing Community App for iPad, iPhone, iTouch and Android.
Send your photos and stories to: Patty with "for Vicarious Travel" in the subject line.
