In small, island churches, there aren’t always elaborate sound systems, teams of musicians or singers with the voice of an angel. Sometimes it’s just a church mother and her voice filled with years of experience of overcoming with God’s Grace and a tambourine. When I was a kid, the tambourine was the funnest instrument in… Continue reading Flamenco Dancing & Church Ladies
These past two weeks I got to do a bit of travel for work and the food was so amazing. Here is but a sampling. Myanmar foods have some interesting smells but always contain some green vegetables, pickled items, curried meats, rice and noodles. It's a mashup of Chinese, Indian and Thai influence. Yes, that… Continue reading Food
Our brains have a brilliant way of rationalizing things even when all other facts say the opposite. One more cookie won’t hurt (which turns into 5), one more hour up, buy the jacket because YOLO. I’ll get back to this. Las Vegas, much like New York, is a city of lights and excitement and lots… Continue reading We Almost Bought a Timeshare
My ideal summer would have been spent traveling through Southeast Asia, hubby and I. Visiting the Thai islands that are still on my list of places to see and exploring the unknown. New locations, new foods, new experiences abroad…I love all of it. That did not happen and that’s okay. Instead, I went back to… Continue reading Summertime Recap

It took me two days to travel home at the beginning of summer, with the longest flight being 15 hours which is second place for the longest single flight I’ve ever flown of 18 hours.… Continue reading Tips For Surviving Long Flights

I always thought about it from the point of travel exposure. The reality is, however, that for most people they won't live too far from where they grew… Continue reading Why Exposure Is So Important?
This will be my second Thailand post. Each time I've visited, I've tried to do different things in the limited time I have. Getting Around Bangkok is a city, city. Like with skyscrapers, lots of traffic, very developed: think New York City for example. I don't have a lot of travel under my belt so… Continue reading Being in Bangkok
Some people move abroad on a whim, others plan it out completely. Here are some things you should think about before moving abroad.
Thailand has been on my bucket list, vision board, goals list for several years so it was literally a dream come true when I got to go. Shoes off when entering any religious temples. When I first moved to Myanmar, I had to stop over in Bangkok but I couldn't really enjoy it because I… Continue reading Thailand
Of course not everything that glitters is gold and so it goes without saying that there are downsides to living abroad or away from home. You miss out on the local fun and activities and good times with your friends. I haven't been to a Jollification or international food festival back home in at least… Continue reading Downsides to Living Abroad
