Dust Off That Passport

January 7, 2012

Oh my.  I’ve been downright neglectful of my little blog, missing even the rare reader comment (one from a startup international travel magazine that wanted to use my missives, no less)!  My apologies.

What have I been up to?  Well, let’s just say I have a lot less spare time than I used to (demanding job, new puppy, and family stuff)…but I haven’t been completely out of the travel world.  In fact, in the last year I’ve had some amazing travel adventures, and I can’t wait to tell you all about them!  And remember that new Canon G12 I got about a year ago?  Turns out it’s one of the best cameras on the planet (says moi!), and you’ll get to see some incredible photos that I shouldn’t even really take credit for (thanks, vivid setting!).

So get ready!  Some good stuff’s in store, including luxury cave hotels, underground cities, incredible sights, some fun food finds, going off the beaten trail and even local jaunts with some helpful tips and pics.

Can You Guess Where This Is? You'll Find Out Soon!







Took the (Camera) Plunge!

January 24, 2011

It has been so long since I updated this blog – sad!   As Gilly would say….”sorry.”

I finally bought a new camera after months of research – a real, grown-up one beyond a point and shoot that is still compact enough to take on trips and carry around easily.  I decided on the new Canon G12 – it acts like a digital SLR without all the bulk.  It has some pretty neat features, which I tested out on a trip to Boston in November.

I’ve been having a lot of fun with the G12 and look forward to testing it in international waters…who knows when that will be??  No trips on the docket as of now, but stay tuned!
