    Dona and Peter,

    Love your site and adventures. We would like to invite you to come to Budapest and Stara Moravica, Serbia. Budapest is a great place to enjoy life in the city, with parks, festivals and so many great places to eat, Stara Moravica is a great retreat to just relax, write, read, or just un-plug from it all. Hope to see you and meet you one day. Keep up the great work as it has been getting us thinking about adding some of the places you visited to our list.

  32. Great Website. Love the posts, pictures, and just an impressive website. I’m having a hard time building a following on wordpress. Any suggestions?

    • We use to major approaches. We setup categories that we are interested in, like travel. Then each day we scroll thru the posts and like to ones that we like. We also use social media outlets – Twitter, Instagram, Facebook to promote our blog.

  33. Hi There, I am regrettably going to de-subscribe because the advertising at your site is annoying. My emails from you feature products for skin tags and the photos are gross….good luck though….
