Originally published 3/4/17. So, slightly unexpected but... I set the date I'm leaving the US (for an extended temporary period) in stone yesterday! So now, the first two months of my world travel is all set! Paid for?...well, I'm getting there. I learned that Global Nomadic partners with Student Travel Association. So I thought why … Continue reading Slight Change of Plans (“Fiscally Sound”)
Originally published 2/25/17. Today has been quite a productive day... Headed to the gym at 10:30, swam my 35 laps (~half mile) in about 40-45 minutes. After that, I was in a group class for some conditioning with one of the trainers. Wow, that class kicked my tush! I always thought my legs were … Continue reading Gearing Up, Part 2
Originally published 2/11/17. Hey Everyone! It's been a while! It feels like a lot but also like nothing has happened over the last several weeks since my last post. What's new... I spent a long weekend at home a few weeks ago. I took a Monday and Friday off; went home Thursday night and … Continue reading Gearing Up, Part 1
Originally published 1/1/17. Today was pretty boring. It was my own fault I didn't have any plans made in advance. I could have done something outside; it was a sunny beautiful day. But I'm usually a hard-charging, gotta-go-gotta-run-gotta-work-can't-stop type of girl. Always busy, always doing something. Oh well, I do need to slow down … Continue reading Boring Day? Make Travel Plans!

I've been working 50 +/- hour weeks regularly. Had a few 60+/- hour weeks thrown in there, and only one week working a total of 71 hours over … Continue reading Happy New Year!
Ok - Now we can move on to publishing posts that I started writing in at the end of 2016. Then, once we're caught up with that, the thought crossed my mind to share some experiences from my 2 weeks in Australia. But I'm not sure where I documented that trip. I feel like I … Continue reading The Plan, The Goal, The Life (Traveling Prequal)
The things you see... This was the last stepwell we studied while in India. While working at the well, I met this group of girls. The tallest girl in the back to the left of me; her name was Puja. She was so happy to show me her notebook from school where she was learning … Continue reading India – Patan (mid-late June, 2011)
Udaipur was a really nice place. Our accommodation was absolutely beautiful! A good place to relax. Driving to Udaipur was a bit of an adventure. It was very rural, kind of hilly, and at times, I wondered if the old beast of a bus was going to make it up to the top. Stopped at … Continue reading India – Udaipur (Early-Mid June, 2011)
I did a horrible job blogging about India. But that's ok! I had to learn somehow! Anyway, going forward, my posts will be mostly pictures with some commentary here and there based on what I remember. We stopped for lunch somewhere midway between Jaipur and Bundi. There was a pond nearby with...well, as you can … Continue reading India – Bundi (Early-Mid June, 2011)
A day that changed my life... Originally Published May 25th, 2011. So, apparently I've gotten a little out of order with my posts. Forgive me! But this is one tour day that changed my life and how I look at some of the trifles that sometimes get under my skin. Anyway, there aren't too many … Continue reading India – A Day that Changed My Life
