Wow did I have a funky dream!! A combination of too many Photoshop tutorials and kind of missing working and interacting with people?? That's my dream interpretation, while it's raining again with limited mobility. Yes, my frigg'in back is kicking my butt after getting in shape again. It's an Advil back pain day, so bummed. … Continue reading Fun w/ Photoshop
So ending my surfing career... Not really, I did book a private 2 hour lesson that turned out to be one hour where the guy caught a few waves while I was scared to stand up & fall. I'd been spocking out where I was going to go the whole trip, debating whether I should … Continue reading Mahalo O’hau
I found a great Hawaii routine...Write/run/hotel workout/swim/lunch/shop/swim and possibly a nap? The tours I've booked from the hotel have been great, last night was the Honolulu fireworks on Friday night for a dinner cruise. By shop I mean for a new pair of sandals, not the Prada - Gucci shopping that's here. My OluKai's I … Continue reading Honolulu
The cure for daylight savings time, where it's dark at 4p in California. Plus a pre-holiday chaos unwind to gear up for a full December. Found some good rates for O'ahu's off season so jumped on a plane last minute. Besides, my travel blogs get more likes than any personal stuff I ever write...haha. It's … Continue reading Aloha!!
Looks like we left Istanbul just in time, although it's not anywhere near the border and I still believe it's one of the greatest cities to visit and probably very safe. Who knows though? We were in Egypt maybe ten years ago and I never felt very safe there, so glad we went though! That … Continue reading Aging as a woman
A full day of touring Istanbul, mostly just getting to & from places for the tours. After breakfast, we headed via metro to the old city Mosques. It's about a mile just to get to the metro from here, my steps have been about 10-20k a day throughout this trip. I'll put the link to … Continue reading Istanbul/Constantinople
Took a little bit of a tumble in Monaco, not so bad I couldn't make it back on the bus & trains to get back to our apartment. It might limit my water time here with the scrape. We got here by the bullet train from Paris, about 6 hours of spectacular scenery. Our apartment … Continue reading Now for Nice & Monte Carlo
With no time to write, even though I was picturing myself sitting in a cafe in Paris writing this whole time. I'd also love to take credit for the featured image..don't ya' just hate it when you lug a nice camera around then someone not only shoots a better shot w/ a phone, then renders … Continue reading Paris
That's because of this kitchen, which will be done soon. Lots of family stuff, lots of back & forth to SoCal with camera in tow and no time for pics. It sometimes comes down to being in the moment or taking a picture of the moment and missing it. Can't remember the last time I … Continue reading Not a writing/photography summer
I've been blogging for over a year now on this wordpress blog, previously on blogspot. It's been good to get my brain working in the morning, making me a little more positive than I usually would be if I were writing for myself only. It's been a great creative outlet, yet I haven't made much … Continue reading Time to Move on ?
