Big News and other things…

If you haven't seen the news on any other of my social media outlets, I have finally gotten around to acquiring my own domain!  Go me! Since I will have to spend a bit of time focusing on the new site, there won't be too much here for a while.  As soon as my new … Continue reading Big News and other things…

Flashback Friday: Oahu, HI

So I've been to two islands in Hawai'i: Maui and Oahu. Of the two I'd say I prefer Maui, but it's been a while since I've been there (guess I have to go back soon!), so I will share my tips for Oahu instead.

Checking off South America: Bogotá, Colombia – Part 1

August 2017 Downtown and La Candelaria  The most common response I got when I mentioned I was travelling to Colombia by myself was, "Is that safe?"  Let's just stop that right there.  Yes, it's safe.  While there are definitely more pickpocket incidents and a few muggings at night, if you're smart and travel safe, you won't … Continue reading Checking off South America: Bogotá, Colombia – Part 1
