I’ve been lucky enough to have had a job that was all about traveling. I worked in Motorsports for about a decade and visited every major city in the U.S. several times a year.
This Blog Post is about some of those cities and even some places in Europe. I hope you enjoy reading about my journeys.
My sister wanted a pic at the airport in Houston as we were headed to California.
This time I was at Houston Intercontinental Airport.
Gotta love First Class travel. I wish I could afford it all of the time, lol.
I always enjoy the view from the plane.
The first place I’ll take you is to Philadelphia, the home of the Liberty Bell.
I was in town for a drag race, so I came in a day early just to tour the city.
Next, I’m at Mt. Rushmore in South Dakota. I was in nearby Sturgis for the motorcycle rally, so I made the drive to see such a historic place.
This next pic is from a crane in Sturgis. I took a ride up to see the town from above.
Here I’m with Johnny and Wendy in Chicago on the pier.
Boston is a fun town to visit. And you’ve gotta have the lobster.
Johnny and I in Orlando, Florida.
Now I’ll take you to NYC for a few pix.
You can’t go to New York and not go see the Statue of Liberty.
Wendy and I at the NYC Stock Exchange during the holidays.
I always try to get a pic with the flag people. They stand on boxes.
This might be, well, it is, my favorite Silver Man. See the box.
This guy was on a box also.
I’ve visited the Empire State Building a couple of times and love going to the top.
Here’s from another visit.
The view is awesome.
Now let’s see some pix from Times Square.
You can’t mention Times Square and not talk about the Naked Cowboy. Can you say Ripped?
Winnie the Pooh and Elmo too.
Mario and Luigi.
Woody from Toy Story fame.
I love the Broadway people advertising different plays and shows.
Love the derby.
She is cute. Too bad the shade from the hat obscures her face.
This is one of my favorite NYC pics.
Men in Black.
I’ve actually never gone to his website.
And now a few more Silver Men from Times Square, NYC.
The Tin Man.
I wonder how much they make doing this. It looks like a lot of effort and a lot of clean up.
Taking a ride through Central Park with Kellie and Wendy.
Wendy and I in Central Park.
And Wendy and I in Times Square.
A shot from on top of Seattle’s Space Needle.
And now, let’s go to Sin City… Vegas, baby.
This is in front of Treasure Island Casino.
I was at a convention and got this shot. Fun girls.
Here I am inside of one of the casinos.
In front of Caesar’s Palace.
Next, I’d like to take you to Santa Fe, New Mexico.
This pic is from inside one of the many museums in town.
Having lunch with my sister.
In the plaza, listening to good music.
Brunch with my sister again.
This pic was taken some time later, as if you couldn’t tell from the hair, lol.
My sister and I went to the Albuquerque Balloon Festival and had a good time.
We took a tour of the city. Our Tour Guide works in movies in Santa Fe as a western extra. He looks the part.
At another museum in Santa Fe.
Having lunch with the sis again.
I’d be remiss if I didn’t include a shot of ‘The Protector’ sculpture in front of my sister’s Santa Fe house. Stunning. It looks better when it snows.
Arrested in New Orleans for Mardi Gras.
Nope, not arrested. Just kidding around.
I love these guy’s costumes. So much color.
Gotta love the motorcycle cops of NOLA.
And the cute Louisiana gals.
Gotta get me a colorful jacket like that.
It was her idea to pose like this. That’s why I’m laughing so hard.
This little guy was on the boardwalk in Monterrey, CA.
I definitely wanted a photo with this pirate.
Took a horseback ride in the Pocono Mountains.
Visited Graceland while in Memphis.
I was in Indy for the 500 when I got this pic.
This photo is from the Daytona 500 weekend.
My sister and I took the Paramount Pictures studio tour while in L.A. Here I am with Bumblebee, from the Transformers movies.
We enjoyed the tour quite a lot. If ever given the chance, you should do it.
I was in Galveston, TX for the Lone Star Rally in this next pic.
Also in Galveston, I caught this Great White off the shore.
Okay, I didn’t really catch a Great White, lol. It’s fake, in front of a store for photo ops.
Next, Tricia, Johnny and I took a hike on a nature trail in the Pocono Mountains.
It was a beautiful day and the scenery was great.
I got this pic right after the Indy 500 parade. Fun time.
I was in NYC for the NASCAR Awards Banquet and got this pic.
Back in Galveston for the Dickens on the Strand weekend.
Disneyland in Anaheim, CA.
I love this pic of the Phoenix race track.
I also enjoyed halloween in Phoenix one year.
As I toured the country, I was asked to help run the Extreme Bikini contests. How could I refuse, lol.
My co-workers and I rented a pontoon boat while in Arizona and had a great time.
I snapped this pic of the Golden Gate Bridge while riding a bicycle there from Fisherman’s Wharf. I’d never do that again. My legs were killing me.
Some San Francisco Silver Men.
Wonder how long to get it all off of your face and hands.
Colorful… and yes, gay.
Now I’d like to take you to Europe for a few of the cities I’ve visited there.
First is Paris and the famous Notre Dame cathedral.
One of my first selfies.
My sister snapped a pic of me in the subway station.
This might be my favorite travel pic of them all. Love the Eiffel Tower in the background.
I’be been to the top of the tower and shot video and got photos.
I also took some photos from different angles.
This is a pic of the little apartment atop the Eiffel Tower.
During good weather months, the tower area is really crowded.
A pic from the top of the tower.
And straight down.
I love that it lights up at night, every hour on the hour.
One of my first pics with the tower.
Now, I’ll show you a few pix of the Louvre Museum.
I’ve been several times and it never gets old.
You could wander for days and still not see everything.
I always go see the Mona Lisa.
Here I am at the Palace of Versailles.
My sister and I took a Paris boat tour. It was enjoyable.
Another Paris selfie.
Having lunch in Paris.
At a Paris flea market.
I had to stop by the Paris Harley-Davidson shop.
This pic is from my first trip to Europe. I’m in Italy.
Another pic from the Italian Riviera. Portofino.
Now off to London, England.
This is the Tower Bridge, a very famous bridge. My friend and I took the tour of it and went through the top of it. Very cool.
Another of my first selfies.
Buckingham Palace during the holidays.
Kissed by a Beefeater.
I bet he gets tired of this, lol.
I couldn’t stand or sit on a horse and be perfectly still and not say a word all day… plus having strangers take pix of me all day.
And lastly, to my favorite European city, Amsterdam.
I’ve been here about as many times as I’ve been to Paris and I love it.
Notice all of the trash in the Red Light District?
They clean the streets every night. This pic is from early in the morning after they’ve cleaned up.
Enjoying a burger in an Amsterdam restaurant.
I hope you’ve enjoyed looking at pix from my travels. I’ll be adding as I take trips.
