Thank you to Perceptive Travel for publishing my article “Landing in Roswell for the Annual UFO Festival”
This week’s post is a relatively short one, as I’m providing a link to an article I wrote about the Roswell UFO Festival. The article is called “Landing in Roswell for the Annual UFO Festival” that was published in the March 2023 issue of the online travel magazine called Perceptive Travel. Since the article only used a portion of the content that I originally submitted, I’m also sharing (below) some additional photos I took during the UFO Festival in 2022 to give you an idea of what to expect if you decide to attend in 2023. It’s a fun event!

Thought for the Week
For this week’s edition of the “Thought for the Week”, I predictably went with an alien theme. Here’s a quote from Stephen Hawking, the famous physicist and author who passed away in 2018. He had a brilliant mind and I must not, as much of what he wrote went over my head when I tried to read his books. But here’s a sentiment from Stephen Hawking that I can understand.
“I believe alien life is quite common in the universe, although intelligent life is less so. Some say it has yet to appear on planet Earth.”
— Stephen Hawking
Thanks for reading and happy travels!
