Can I get a drum roll please?  I am so excited to announce the newest addition to Passport to Bliss…Video Bliss!

Throughout my travels and wanderings through life, I have enjoyed taking videos.  Some are scenic, some are interesting, some are silly, some are totally random but kinda fun…and then there are those where I provide my own travel narratives in an attempt to be like a famous host on the Travel Channel or something…and those will probably remain in the vault!

Well, it’s time to dust off the videos & showcase them to the world!

This first video is one that I created and posted recently after welcoming the mighty Shuttle Endeavour home (Space Shuttle Endeavour – A Homecoming to Remember.)  I was really happy with the outcome and thought it would be a great way to kick off Video Bliss.

I hope you enjoy!

You know what brings me bliss?

Space Shuttle Endeavour!Spaceships traveling down the streets of Los Angeles, of course!

Last Saturday on October 13th, my husband and I got to be a part of history as we joined thousands of excited spectators on the streets of Los Angeles in welcoming the Space Shuttle Endeavour home.

It was a celebration like no other!

Streets were blocked off, family and friends partied in their front yards and on rooftops, cameras, tripods and media appeared in droves, news crews lined the streets, strangers became friends, the Goodyear Blimp circled the skies and helicopters hovered overhead in anticipation for her arrival.

Talk about celebrity treatment!

As we stood on the sidewalk with enthusiastic spectators, a spirited “Woo-hoo!” came from the crowd followed by “Oohs and ahhs” with fingers pointing down the street.  In the distance, inching her way up Crenshaw Boulevard (with quite the  police escort) was the guest of honor, the Space Shuttle Endeavour.


I swear she was smiling and gleaming with pride as her wings stretched out over the cheering crowd.


People laughed, cried, stared in awe, waved, hugged, sang and cheered.  It was a beautiful thing to come together in celebration of the mighty Endeavour.

Just thinking about it gives me the chills.


I was so inspired that over the next couple of days I created a fun video comprised of photos and video footage we took set to a well known musical score.  I hope this brings you as much joy as it did for me.  Enjoy!
