I Think I’m Over Long Term Travel and I’m Trying to Be OK with It

I have been feeling very travel weary lately.  More and more I spend time thinking about having an actual “home” again.  A “home” where I get to sleep in the same bed every night. A “home” where I actually have a closet so finishing laundry doesn’t involve just putting everything back in packing cubes.  A… Continue reading I Think I’m Over Long Term Travel and I’m Trying to Be OK with It

I Miss Dressing for Fall

Recently we were in Nanning, China and a cold front came through and it definitely felt nippy like fall.  It was interesting to watch all of the locals in their cooler weather clothing with the long sleeves and jackets and it made me a little sad thinking about the sweaters, jeans, boots, etc. that I… Continue reading I Miss Dressing for Fall

Excited About Dental Floss……..

You know I have been on the road too long when I got really excited that I found some good dental floss.  I’m not sure what the deal is with people (not?) flossing their teeth in S. Korea and China, but we ran out of dental floss in S. Korea and it wasn’t as easy… Continue reading Excited About Dental Floss……..
