What You Are Not Supposed to Wear on an African Safari

The Husband and I were recently trying to work on our future travel itinerary and needed somewhere to kill a little time so it warms up in Europe before we head that way (we really hate cold weather).  We discovered that there are some really cheap flights from India to South Africa and Tanzania.  We… Continue reading What You Are Not Supposed to Wear on an African Safari

In fact, I had such a great time… Continue reading Vintage Paradise at the Nampodong Market in Busan

Do People Ever Just “Give Up” On How They Look?

I recently posted on my separate travel blog a photo of me in the KL airport wearing socks with sandals  (and yes I have a separate travel blog so friends and family can follow my adventures). I know this is a major fashion no-no, and normally I wouldn’t have done something like that but unfortunately… Continue reading Do People Ever Just “Give Up” On How They Look?
