I am a travel junkie. It seems to run in my family, no doubt inherited from my parents. My father immigrated from Norway in the 1950s with little more than one red accordion and the desire to reach America. My mother’s grandmother immigrated from Sweden in the 1890s, one of the millions of immigrants to pass through Ellis Island in that decade alone. I have been lucky enough to be able to pursue my passion for travel and continue to do so. I have had the great opportunity to share these experiences with all of the members of my immediate family and some very dear friends. This website was created so I can share my favorite travel photos, as well as the memories. LMN

Hello! I was reading your blog and realize that we may be related. My great grandmother was Signe Karhus. She married a man named Victor Hugo Dahlstrom. I have a very old photo of her and him in front of the Karhus Hotel from maybe 1910?
I would love to speak or email with you to see if the pieces do fit together. Signe and Victor immigrated to Minnesota and then Seattle, where we continue to live.
What a treat to see pictures of Sand. I have always wanted to visit.

Hi. I love some of your photos of Lake Michigan and I wanted to know if we could use one, with your permission, to put on a tote bag.
Hello: Yes, please write to me at cptnLaura@gmail.com. I downsize all the pictures I post, so I can send you a larger format photo if you tell me which one you like. Thanks,
I enjoyed the first photo very much. Do You work for an airline? I worked for Finnair all my life.
All the best!
Yes, I am a pilot.
My hat. My story is in this post:
I always wanted to be, but money missing. 🙂
I am sure that You will love my post, because it tells also, not only my work history, but also in a nut shell hidden gems in Finland with photos!
As we in Finland say:
P.S. I was flying officer during 5 years in my company and this of course means that I had a crew membership training to many air craft types. My longest trip was from HEL to BUE.
