I Took A River Cruise Through The South Of France. Yes, Really.

Monday, January 23, 2017

As I sat in the lounge of our longship nursing a freshly poured glass of wine, I looked around the room.

A Journey Back In Time In Sri Lanka

Tuesday, August 23, 2016

For average non-acrophobes, it probably wouldn’t have meant much, but for those of us with a healthy fear of impending death (including a related fear of snakes, spiders and Abba), the idea the narrow metal staircase leading me to the apex of Sigiriya, the 6-story-high […]
