Here’s a quick look at some unusual places to see Mother Nature’s most dazzling displays of so-amazing-this-must-be-Photoshopped leaf-stravaganzas, across the globe.
Kenneth Weene's insight:
This Broody New Englander loves fall foliage, so I had to share this great lists of places to go besides Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, and western Massachusetts. Ok, New York and Connecticut have some nice trees, too. But how about China and Iceland? Have a great trip.

Fifty Authors from Fifty States: Uncle in Vermont-Kenneth Weene

Fifty Authors from Fifty States: Uncle in Vermont-Kenneth Weene | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
We started going to the Kedron Valley because of their animal policies. Not only did they welcome dogs, but they had a lovely stable from which we could take great rides into the rich Vermont countryside. Uncle loved it not only because of the great breakfasts and the absence of leash rules, but more importantly because it allowed her to enjoy some of her favorite pastimes.

First and foremost was drinking. Yes, I mean booze, or to be more exact – Harvey’s Bristol Cream Sherry.

Kenneth Weene's insight:

Some dogs like to roam. Some are hunters through and through. Many prefer to dig and some to swim. Then there are the cuddlers, the canines who'd rather be carried. But very few are drunks. Royal at heart but still a booze-hound. Enjoy the story and leave a comment to possibly win a book.

8 incredible travel destinations inspired by adventure novels | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it

An engaged reader is one whose mind wanders to faraway lands when turning a page. An inspired reader is one whose life changes after shutting the book. For some, reading a good adventure novel isn't enough. They need to live it.

Kenneth Weene's insight:

I hope my love affair with Maine will encourage readers of Broody New Englander to visit, but I won't reveal the actual town because the entire state deserves a visit. Ayup.

Maggie Tails: Uncle in Vermont by Kenneth Weene

Maggie Tails: Uncle in Vermont by Kenneth Weene | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it

She loved traveling, delighting in hotels and particularly enjoying room service breakfasts: scrambled eggs not too firm or a cheddar omelet, a side of bacon, toast buttered and strawberry jam, hash browns with ketchup, and coffee—light and sweet. Uncle, our twelve-pound terrier-poodle mix, had little use for me, but she did appreciate my serving her hotel breakfast. Another thing about Uncle and hotels stays: that was the only time she would tolerate a leash. Yes, she did understand the rules that people imposed even if she knew they were stupid and surely didn’t apply to a dog who knew exactly where to go and what to do without being told.

Kenneth Weene's insight:

Thanks from Uncle and myself to Maggie Adkins for sharing this post which I hope will tickle dog lovers everywhere.

Man killed during bull run in Spain pushes death toll to 10 so far for year

Man killed during bull run in Spain pushes death toll to 10 so far for year | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
As the number of towns holding bull runs grows to nearly 16,000, the death of a man in his 40s pushes the toll to equal the record of deaths set in 2009
Kenneth Weene's insight:

Tourists are an incredibly inane species, somewhat like the lemming or the dodo in individual intellectual prowess. Without that stupidity, the running of the bulls would never be such a major event. Let's face it, those who are watching want to see blood and those who are taking part—well, they want to feel that they are better than others. Yeah, I admit it, I'm not a fan of bull fighting either; but I do love a good steak, and that's no bull. Matter of fact, it's more likely a steer.
