I’m composing this update on the plane and will post it when we land in San Francisco. This world of ours is full of wonders.   The drive west across Ireland, from Dublin to Doolin, was flipping gorgeous. And great fun, along many winding one lane country roads. Our GPS, which we christened Fiona, was Keep reading

I’m hanging out, briefly, on our “sea view” balcony at Fitzpatrick Castle Hotel in Killiney. It’s freezing and windy (again, it’s winter) and so foggy there’s no way I could verify whether there’s a sea out there at all.

Awww! It's like looking in a little anxiety mirror. It's nice to know I'm not alone in my crazy combination of over-planning, trip stress and total desire to adventure.

So, sometimes your friend calls you to ask, “Do you want to go to Ireland…NEXT WEEK?” And you hear yourself saying “Yes!” Even though I’m a planner. Guys, I plan. It’s what I do. Half of the fun of travel, for me, is researching and checking out blogs and dreaming about all the shenanigans that Keep reading
