Ubud, Bali, Indonesia. The gang gets bigger!

Ubud, Bali, Indonesia. The gang gets bigger!

We headed out to Ubud in our matching dresses. We left the scenic shore lined coast of Seminyak for the center of Bali, Ubud. Ubud is where the author of Eat, Pray, Love stayed while in Bali. It is said to be the heart and soul of the island. We made a few stops on […]

Singapore and Seminyak, Bali: The cast of characters

Singapore and Seminyak, Bali: The cast of characters

The girls: Carolyn, Claire, Kelly, Jodie I flew a long miserable flight into Singapore. I always have a hard time sleeping on planes. This time was no different. I arrived at my friend Kelly’s place in Singapore with enough time to clean up, do a quick reshuffle of luggage and head to bed. There were […]

Back to Berlin and Paris. Onto London and Home. The End of Leg 2.

Back to Berlin. Over to Brussels and Paris. Onto London and Home. The End of Leg 2.

I caught my flight back to Berlin at 7am dragging my feet. Thankfully, it was a fairly short flight. I leaned my head against the window and was able to catch about 20 good minutes of sleep. It’s miserable to be this tired, this run down. Life is so much more enjoyable when you’ve had […]

Assisi, Bettona and Perugia, Italy

I took the train the next day to Orte where my friend picked me up and drove us to Assisi. We toured the church where St. Francis is buried. A church, I was told, may be even more important than the Vatican to Catholics.  We left the church to find a heavy drizzle of rain. […]

Pompeii

Rome, Naples and Pompeii, Italy

How do I say, “I am fat” in Italian?? Mio Dio!!! I have eaten myself silly while in Rome. I have been to Rome before, so I am not interested in sightseeing. I am only interested in eating good food, drinking good coffee and wine, finding lbs of capers in salt for my Mom and […]

Venice

Venezia. Everyone has a story to tell.

I decided to fly into Milan from Budapest since the overnight train would have cost me 14 hours, no sleep, and two days on my Eurorail pass. I hopped on a train from Milan to Venice and arrived in the small town of Mestre, just outside the city. It’s a 10 minute train ride to […]

Vienna, Budapest

Vienna, Austria and Budapest, Hungary

I hopped off of the train in Vienna, walked to the sightseeing spots, took pictures, ate wiener schnitzel and apple strudel, bought a souvenir and hopped back on the train headed to Budapest. That’s all the time I gave to Vienna. Budapest-  I have been using this answer since I was in my early 20’s […]

I Left My Heart in Prague

I Left My Heart in Prague

If you have ever wondered what it would be like to live in a fairy tale kingdom, come to Prague. Here, you can walk amongst castles and clock towers. You can hear the sound of a brass trumpet reminding you the top of the hour is here. There are the sounds of church bells and […]

Germany

Germany

I love waking up in a new city everyday. Not knowing where I am is a challenge at times. It forces me to use my brain and think. I have to focus and look at the signs. Pay attention to my surroundings. Place my alert system on high. Listen to the words around me, hear […]

Amsterdam, Holland

Amsterdam, The Netherlands

I still haven’t caught up with my sleep from being sick, the overnight plane ride from New York and the very late night in Paris. I have had very little time to get online and plan ahead. The plan was to book the hotel rooms in the city prior to arriving, which is ideal since […]

Pareeee!

Bonjour!! I have landed safely in Paris for a two-day stop. It is ironic that the only other time I was in Paris was close to 13 years ago and I was sick with a stomach virus then and I am now on the tail end of the flu. Hopefully, it is not a trend, […]

The End of Leg One

I couldn’t wait til my head hit the pillow tonight. The last few days have been rough. I will reluctantly admit that, after days of denying that I could possibly get sick on the day I leave for the second leg of my journey, I am sick.  Mini me came home with it last week […]
