The TWRTimes is pleased to bring you Mary Lee Cipriano. Mary Lee is going to take us traveling around the world. Let’s go meet her. By way of introduction, I owned a travel agency based outside of Philadelphia PA for twenty five years, and have been fortunate to travel quite a bit. Through this series of articles, I will tell about some of my favorite places in the world and at times will challenge you to know “Where in the World is Mary Lee?”

Hawaii And Back In 18 Days

18 days!  Seemed like a really long cruise to me.  After all, the only cruise I have ever been on was seven days.  Well, I was on the ship that long.  In actuality, I slept a healthy third of the trip after mistakenly taking a double dose of meds to overcome sea sickness.  This former…

Destination – Tahiti and Moorea

Tahiti! Adventures in Paradise starring Gardner McKay as Adam Troy! Oh yes, I remember it well. Perhaps that TV show lit the fire under my wanderlust!

Picture yourself visiting Kilauea, one…

Destination – Greece

Want to take my selected memory tour of Greece?  Not just the incredible “big” cities like Athens, but the small roads to a different time?  I’ve been fortunate to visit this incredible country five or six times in my life and have experienced the changes that occurred since my first trip in 1971. Athens:  The…

Destination – Lady Lake, Florida

Its October and my chance to scare you with the story of The Haunting of Rolling Acres Road. Its our Florida. Rolling Acres Road crosses highway 441 in Lady Lake, and if you turn East on it, you will be disappointed. It runs through a populated area of ordinary residences and businesses-nothing weird at all. …
