Dublin Ireland 2016

Standard

Dublin is the perfect location for an English major to remember why she loves language. Oscar Wilde (The Importance of Being Earnest) and Jonathan Swift (Gulliver’s Travels) to name a few great writers. We had an amazing tour guide who seemed as excited to share the city and the Cliffs of Mother as we all were to see and learn. Please visit if you love to travel!

Geneva Switzerland 2016

Standard

The second leg of #birthday2016 is Switzerland which makes sense for this lover of chocolate! Being outdoors here I notice that the air is quite fresh for Europe given the fact that no one has gotten the cigarettes kill memo. As usual, the first visit to any country gets an immediate do-over to give me a fair chance to research likes and dislikes about the place.

House Hunters International Paris

Standard

The objective for this year’s Paris trip was specifically to move my longtime goal of becoming a Paris resident from dream to reality. With a few serendipitous opportunities to meet the right real estate people, I am closer than ever to the goal.

I had narrowed down my search to Montparnasse a few years ago. Now, there’s a street (Rue Littre) as well. Mission accomplished.

Sunday Reflections

On this, my birthday, I wish you all peace and love. 9/11 is a tough day to celebrate myself, but I remain eternally grateful and hopeful in this life and opportunity.
