JOY      a noun – origin – Latin       ” to rejoice”

Our joy is found in family, friends, music, books, art, travel, design and food.  We hope to inspire you to celebrate “joie de vivre”…share that joy with others and vanquish the darkness that threatens to cover the world…

We are taking our joy on the road.  Here is a link for our summer travels.   Summer Travel Trip Map.  We will be posting our travel stories and photos.

We picked a destination to beat the heat of the valley. This will be our fifth summer in Phoenix and I don’t care what you have heard about “acclimating”….it isn’t true.  Humans begin to cook at 160 degrees…and that my friends can be the temperature inside your car when left in the grocery parking lot.

This summer we will start our travels in Barcelona Spain, then take a Mediterranean cruise ending up in Lisbon Portugal.  From Portugal we will fly to Dublin Ireland and travel by car for 3 weeks ending in Belfast Ireland.  From Belfast we fly to Glasgow Scotland and travel Scotland to England and then home.

Share the joy…and you, too, will experience a feeling of great pleasure and happiness The exultation of our kindred sprits will fill with triumph, delight, jubilation, glee, exhilaration, exuberance, elation, euphoria, bliss ecstasy,  felicity, glee, enchantment and excitement.

bon voyage!
