Land of the Rising Fun: Kyoto and Nara Edition

When I thought about visiting Kyoto during the cherry blossom season  I imagined a peaceful, haiku-writing, kimono-sleeve-fluttering experience.

I Heart Hrvatska – Zagreb Edition

I bring you a belated part 2 chronicling how my specialmanfriend and I  got our wander on across Germany, Croatia, Bosnia and Austria. We say “auf wieder-something” to Berlin…  and “ne govorim hrvatski” (I don’t speak Croatian) to Zagreb, Croatia. Zagreb … Continue reading


My special man friend and I recently returned from a three week sojourn to Europe where we laughed and ate our way through four amazing countries. Although I would have liked to blog on the go, I was too busy … Continue reading
