Formentera, Spain

Formentera was a last-minute stop and a last-minute decision on my way through Spain. It is a small island in the Balearic Sea just off the coast of Ibiza. I stayed in the sweetest little hostal called Hostal La Savina (see my review of the hotel here: Hotel Review- Hostal La Savina- Formentera, Spain ) I […]

Madrid -Palacio Real noche

A Special Encounter in Madrid

During my journey around the world, I have met many people and have had many amazing experiences, but none more touching than while on a short walking tour of Madrid this past Saturday. As I stumbled into a tapas bar across from the royal palace to rest my feet, a young waiter approached and began […]

Essaouira, Morocco

Essaouira, Morocco

I am currently spending most of my down time trying to catch up on some personal writing so, unfortunately, I will not be spending a lot of time writing for the blog. Here are some great pictures from my recent visit to Essaouira, Morocco. My first night’s sunset The view from my hotel’s rooftop The […]

Marrakech, Morocco and the BIG birthday!

Marrakech! It was last Fall while passing through Paris that I first had the thought of ever going to Marrakech. My friend Kamil whom I met up with in Paris is from Marrakech and extended a generous invitation to visit him there. I knew the Spring would be the earliest I could manage to get […]

Dubai!

I arrived close to midnight expecting to find my friend that would be hosting my stay fast asleep and unwilling to await my late arrival. A key was left for me to let myself in. I was pleasantly greeted at the front door by my friend and a glass of wine. It was now 1:00 […]

Back to Singers!

The tour is winding down and I now have to start thinking about booking my return back to the States. I have one last destination after this weekend in Singapore….Dubai, and then it is back to the US for a short while. Kelly and I spent a fairly quiet weekend in Singapore sleeping in, relaxing […]

Mekong canoe ride

Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam AKA Saigon

How can you top Siem Reap? They were big shoes to fill for Ho Chi Minh. Unfortunately, Ho Chi Minh fell short. Kelly and I agreed not long after arriving that we desperately wanted to go back to Cambodia. Ho Chi Minh (aka Saigon) is a dirty, smelly city filled with motorbikes. And I don’t […]

Siem Reap, Cambodia and The Smiling Mom

I didn’t know what to expect when arriving in Cambodia. It was already nighttime as evident by the swarm of mosquitos, crickets and other bugs awaiting outside the arrival door at the baggage claim. A few jumped right down my shirt as I exited. I was taken back and a little nervous as I am […]

Bangkok, Thailand

I have two days in Bangkok. A bustling, large city heavy with pollution. My friend, Mapi, keeps a place a few hours outside the city and happened to be there the same time as me. She came into the city and joined me for the two days. We strolled the night market full of knock […]

Ping Pong Phuket

Ping Pong Phuket

We took the 2 hour ferry ride over to Phuket for our last two nights together as a group. We stayed in the quiet yet bustling town of Surin beach. It is a small beach nestled on the North West coast of Phuket far enough away from the over crowded Patong, Karon and Kata beaches […]

Krabi and Phi Phi Islands, Thailand

Krabi and Phi Phi Islands, Thailand

I packed a very light bag filled with flip-flops, light sundresses, bikinis and beach cover ups since we were headed to an exotic, tropical, beach location. This was finally the sun filled beach week I had been longing for. There was no beach holiday in Europe, Ohio or even in Bali. It was Fall while […]

Singapore: Kelly’s birthday weekend

Our weekend in Singapore filled with activities began on Friday flying in from Bali. We hurriedly showered and changed our clothes to catch the David Foster concert Kelly had arranged tickets for. Five of us made it, two fell out due to “Bali Belly” that was rapidly spreading around the group.  We arrived at the […]
