Daydreaming about the Maldives

The Last Trip before Coronavirus Stopped my Travels. For someone who claims that they don’t care that no one reads the blog, I was unpleasantly surprised at how many people chose NOT to read my blog about Sri Lanka last week. Maybe it was the title. Maybe the timing wasn’t right. Maybe I should’ve sharedContinue reading “Daydreaming about the Maldives”

Sri Lanka: Mangroves, Elephants, Sea Turtles…oh my!

I’m not sure if this begins in November 2019 or if it begins in the fall of 2017. Let’s go all the way back to the 2017, but I promise to keep it short.

The thought of “knowingContinue reading “Wherever You Go, There You Are.”

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

This time last year, I was in Malaysia. Actually, as I publish this, it was last week of last year, but the actual dates don’t really matter, do they?
