[17-July-2022 to 22-July-2022, Virgin Voyages Caribbean Cruise]
After being delayed for two years, The Richard Branson Birthday Bash Virgin Voyages took to the sea from 17-July-2022 to 22-July-2022. I booked through Shelby at travelfun.biz (or on Facebook here). The cruise left the Port of Miami to Cozumel and then to the private beach for Virgin on Bimini. But enough talk, here are the pictures – just click on the pic below or the link under it to go to the picture page. The first set are pictures I took followed by selected the pictures that were shared by the TravelFun group:

Back in 2019, my sci-fi con buddy Nathan said I gotta go to Tiki Oasis – it is over the top fun. SO I said okay, I’m game. Registered for Tiki Oasis 2020 and -BOOM- COVID hit. So – I rolled over my tickets to 2021 and here are my pictures in no particular order… Few pictures are from Angela, as marked. Click on the pic or link below to check out all of the Tiki photos:

[25-27 October, 2019, New Orleans, LA, US]
The Vampire Ball at the House of Blues thrown by the Endless Night krewe has come to another end in New Orleans. This is my fourth Endless Night in New Orleans (one in New York). I usually go for the Friday and Saturday night events and fly back on Sunday; however, I decided to do the Sunday night dinner and the gathering. Sunday was more conducive to talking with people as the music wasn’t blaring at maximum 🙂 Plus the food was great at the House of Blues New Orleans. I forgot to take pictures of the food – sorry about that…
So here are the pictures, click on the pic below or on the link:

[14 October, 2019, Oracle, AZ, US]
Visited my dad, uncles, aunts and more in Oracle, AZ from the 10th to the 14th of October in Oracle. Went to GLOW, which is held by the Triangle L Ranch.com every year in the fall.
The event features artwork of all kinds dotted along multiple paths in the desert all within the Triangle L Ranch. There are several spots that have musicians playing esoteric music. There is also food and non-alcoholic drinks for sale at the event. It used to be one night a year but it got so crowded, it was split into four event days (with different themes) with limited tickets, so that you don’t get stuck in a huge swaths of people, making it more enjoyable to stroll from point to point.

[26-Sep-2019 Abbey Road Studios, Westminster, UK ]
Time for something crazy. Went to London to attend a two hour event. Okay, it was in Abbey Road Studios to listen to The Beatles’ Abbey Road album – with wine and food on @6th of September, one day before the international release of the remastered album (vinyl records and CDs). Thanks to Hilton Honors for throwing this gala event. It was inside Abbey Road Studios. No pictures in the hallways! But we were allowed to take pictures in the mythic Studio 2 – where The Beatles recorded about 90% of all of their songs.

so I took a ton of pictures. Oh, and I thought I was crazy. No. I met Jane at the studios – she came in from Siberia – traveling 4 days on the trans-Siberian railroad to Moscow, then flew in from there just to be at Abbey Road one day on the 26th of September! Now, that is insane dedication to The Beatles!

After the Abbey Road experience, I heard Paul and Ringo were going to show up so I stayed a bit. A “bit” equals over 5 hours! Got pictures of Peter Jackson (director of “The Lord of The Rings, etc), and then Ringo and then Paul!
