If you saw Russell Crowe in the Gladiator movie, then you know what I’m talking about. It is estimated that over 500,000 people and 1 million animals were killed during the Roman games.

White-sand beaches, fantastic snorkeling and diving sites, great food, unique culture, and warm people all make Okinawa a top must-see place in Japan.

How large is Samhain? Hoping my cat can be comfortable in the Delta sherpa as well for an unavoidable and long flight. I admit it – I’m in love with our little 13-ft vintage Shasta Travel Trailer. It’s the warm cozy adorable playhouse I dreamed about as a little girl.
