Post travels to Morocco

The Post recently traveled to Morocco with the Norris family. The photo above shows Solon Township’s TJ Norris, with husband Ken behind the iPhone camera, at the astounding Grand Mosque in Casablanca, Morocco, in mid-March. The couple were on a two-week tour when international borders started to close due to COVID-19 restrictions, cutting short their vacation in a wonderful kingdom filled with amazing sights and amazing people. With the help of the in-country tour company and the American Consulate in Casablanca, they were driven to Marrakech, expatriated by flights to London and then back to the U.S.A., to Chicago. Local travel agent Lori Visser, who arranged the tour and had their back when times got sketchy, got them home from there. 

Thank you, Ken and TJ, for taking us with you! We are glad you got home safely!

Post travels to Wisconsin, Upper Peninsula


The Post traveled with the Guarisco family in July on the Lake Express fast ferry across Lake Michigan to Wisconsin. They went to the Dells and saw the Tommy Bartlett Boat Show, and then toured the area for a couple of days. They then traveled to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan for the rest of the week. They went to Iron Mountain and did the iron mine tour and learned about “Big John,” the world’s largest miner. They took a train ride through the mine, which has been open for tourists since 1958. They stopped and saw a waterfall, and visited Kitch-iti-Kipi, Michigan’s largest natural fresh water spring (the name means big cold water). “It was nice to see all the fish in the water,” they said. “It sure is beautiful up there. We had a great family trip!”

It sounds like you had a great time! Thanks so much for taking us with you!

The Post travels to Hawaii


Earlier this year the Post traveled to Hawaii with Alan and Alyson Kieda, of Solon Township, and their daughter Rachel and her husband Ryan Campbell, and grandson Thomas, of Gand Rapids. The trip was to celebrate Alan and Alyson’s 40th wedding anniversary.

After missing a day because of ice at the airport, they traveled to Maui for a few days, then Oahu for almost a week, and then the Big Island for a week. 

“We stayed at a beautiful Airbnb and played on volcanic beaches,” said Alan. “We learned all about volcanoes, as one cancelled two of our housing possibilities early in the year. We wondered why they didn’t just clear the lava off the road. We went to see it and found lava 30 feet high-plus over the roads and neighborhood for miles! 2000 folks lost their homes,” he said.

The Kiedas and Campbells had a great time and took lots of photos with the Post. Thank you so much for taking us with you!
