Welcome to JKBellomo.com

We are Jim & Kathleen Bellomo

Much of what you read on this website will be reviews and opinions about our travels and our home city, Seattle. Therefore, we think it would help if you knew who we are. Read on if you are interested in us. If not, go forward to our sites or trips.

Kathleen is an insurance underwriter for Group Health Cooperative (until December 15, 2017 when she will retire!!!) and I own my own business that produces niche products for the high school yearbook industry. At least for now.

Kathleen and I met on the Internet in November 1997 and we each have kids from previous marriages.

Kathleen has a wonderful daughter (Michelle) who is married to a great guy (Brian). Jim has one of each, a son (Josh) who is married to a marvelous young lady (Cynthia) and a daughter (Jenna) who is  married to another great guy (Joel) and one grandson (Mason) and one granddaughter (Maylee) who are the lights of our lives.

Our interests include travel, theater, film, reading and for me, cooking and computers--Macintosh computers. If you are ever in Seattle, I would love to cook for you. There is nothing either of us would rather be doing than sailing on a cruise ship with any of our Martini Mates or playing with our grandchildren.

Other web sites that I create and maintain

My Seattle

We have met so many people in our travels who are coming to Seattle and ask for recommendations on what to do, where to stay and where to eat that I created this  website
for them. Help yourself. Click the photo.

Our Grandson Mason

 A bunch of pics detailing all the days that my Grandson Mason has been on this earth. Totally up to date and will be kept up to date each month.

Our Granddaughter Maylee

A bunch of pics detailing all the days that our Grandaughter Maylee has been on this earth. Totally up to date and will be kept up to date each month.

Our Sites

7/52-2

In 2013 I did a photo project where I took 7 pics a week for 52 weeks with other photographer friends. Clicking the pic will take you to see our photos.

365-2008

In 2008 I did my first 365 Project (really a 366 because it was leap year) where I took a photo every day of the year and posted them online. The site has all the photos from 2008.

365-2011

I did my second 365 project in 2011. This is the complete site with all pics and commentary. Enjoy.

Our Trips

In November of 2014 we took a ten-year anniversary cruise with Celebrity. In November 2004 we had taken a cruise on Infinity through the Panama Canal. We did it again (same day, same ship, same cabin) this time with 11 of our closest friends...the Martini Mates.

We join our Martini Mates on our beloved Century and sail to Hawaii in 15 days to and from San Diego. Lots of fun onboard.

Off to Alaska on Century

Our friends Bob and Judy had decided to go to Alaska on Celebrity’s Century and we decided to go along as well.

February 2010–SE Asia

In February 2010 we embarked on a very long flight followed by a short stay, a two week cruise and another short stay in a part of the world we not only had never been to but never thought we would travel to in our lives—Southeast Asia.

In March of 2009 we embarked on a two week and two day journey to Florida and a cruise of the Caribbean on Celebrity Cruise Line’s Solstice with the Martini Mates.

A quick trip to Calgary

 We try and get out of the US for all the major holidays. In 2010 with a plethora of Alaska Airline miles we decided to spend a few of them and go to Calgary.

August 2008–Alaska on Infinity

After a  long summer of hard work and stress we needed a break. The best thing we could think of was a break on our favorite ship with our favorite people (Bob and Judy)

October 2007–Barcelona & the Western Mediterranean

We spent four wonderful days in Barcelona before boarding Century for a trip around the Western Mediterranean.
