Here I go

I soon realized that no journey carries one far unless, as it extends into the world around us, it goes an equal distance into the world within. ~Lillian Smith
So I am off to a new land with new food, new people, new bugs, new languages, new customs and new climates. I am looking forward to quite an adventure. I hope to update this often and be able to share my stories with you as I experience all these new experiences so check this often.
Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime. ~Mark Twain

I love this 'blog site idea', its far from the 'postcards' of my day.
Great pics, Kari, especially the 'grannie panties', sure hope you get my name for Xmas next year.

Jamie had a great meet in Hawaii, she surfed twice and fell in love with it...guess what's at the top of her birthday wish list?? She'll be 'chatting you up' for an Island surfing get away once you're back home.

What a fabulous adventure Kari, I'm so happy for you.

Take good/safe/santiary,care :-)

Love Jan

Hi Kari,we wonder what you are eating over there, McDonald's? Any exotic foods or do you just eat it and don't ask questions? I liked your bed-bug story, maybe they have traps for them like we do mice - check it out, eh. Melanie and Cameron say Hi! We love you.
