Hello, and welcome to my blog.

On July 24, 2016,  the blog where I’ve been blogging off and on since 2006 died.  Only parts have been recoverable. Sniff. Sniff. So in a nod to all the changes that’s happened in the last few weeks, I decided to start a new one. It’s a new blog, with a new name and a new focus.  Previous editions of the blog focused 100% on travel, but with my new job, new living space, kitty cats, and starting graduate school in a couple of weeks, the focus of this one will be a little bit different than before.  No more months-long jaunts to far-flung places.  These days, it will be more local out of necessity.  2, 3 and 4 days at a time  are about all I can manage.  As with most things in my life, it’s a work in progress.

The best way to read the blog in chronological order (I don’t always write in chronological order, but I digress… )is to head over to  THE BLOG  page, and if you want to find out more about me, click on the photo of me…the adventure adikt on the sidebar.  You’ll find more than you ever wanted to know about me. Notes from… are my pages which I’ve come up with a loose organizational system.  Some things may be cross-posted, but as of now, it’s what I’ve come up with.

So that’s my blog in a nutshell.  Once again, hello, and I’m glad you stopped by.  Visit as often and whenever you can.
