Do you feel the beat?  I sure did this last week in Cartagena Colombia!  This was my first trip to Colombia and with a few salsa beats and welcoming hugs it had me won over and wanting more.  I was there working on a project for USTOA and AFAR.  It was a quick 4 days [...]

Week In-stagram Review Walks of New York

5 Comments 05 December 2014

I have a bad case of withdrawal from the warm beachy weather I left in Sri Lanka!  I’m back in NYC for a short time and decided my cure for chilly jet lag would be to hit the cold streets of New York head on. I had a friend in town who was a first [...]

The World is Scary

10 Comments 31 October 2014

Every country has them…abandoned scary places. Places that give you goose bumps and make the hair on the back of your neck prickle.

Week In-stagram Review Wild Atlantic Way

4 Comments 30 October 2014

I moved a bit quicker through 3 counties along the Wild Atlantic Way this last week. My driving moved up yet another level closer to ‘local’ as I zipped past tourists and tractors on the small winding roads that reminded me of ribbons blowing in the wind. At one point I actually decided that I [...]
