Unwanted Advances Along the Lycian Way

I squinted my eyes and peered out onto the bush filled mountain searching for the trail. “Look, do you see it?” he said as he placed his hand on my knee. “The trail is right here.” Pointing across my body. I still couldn’t really see it but decided to fake it since it would bring [...]

My 2014 Challenge

44 Comments 31 December 2013

Forget resolutions, give me a challenge.  There’s nothing I love more than a challenge – one that makes me slightly uneasy making me question whether I’m capable, but at the same time it excites me. It’s what I call living on the edge – the edge of butterflies and throwing up. Many of my life [...]

A Chef’s Heaven at O’o Farm

7 Comments 14 November 2013

Traveling Solo Doesn’t Mean Solo All the Time

6 Comments 05 February 2013

Sometimes I get tired of meeting people. Really tired. I feel like it’s the movie Groundhog day and I simply have gone through the same introductions for 6 years now. I know, I know – meeting people is fun. Yes – most of the time it is. But imagine the new people you may meet [...]
