Catching Up

It has been a crazy month.  I don’t know if the four straight weeks of travel whilst trying to keep up with my physical therapy for my shoulder or the constant bouncing between hotels while on the road contributed to my sheer exhaustion…but I have been flatter than a dead battery while at home.  Oh, … More Catching Up

Going Away Gift

After nearly two months at home recovering from surgery I have to head back out on the road next week.  I’ll admit I have just a bit trepidation.  From having to change my routine (never checking my bag to checking my bag, giving up the backpack for a rolling briefcase) to fearing how I am … More Going Away Gift

A Different World

I have traveled to many places. I have seen both the good and bad of travel. Being in Jakarta is, in a word, different. The blur between cultures is everywhere. I am staying in a hotel that was the location of a terrorist attack in 2009. Having the vehicle you are traveling in go through … More A Different World
