My Personal Blog

Here's where you'll find various musings, including plenty of posts about my travels over the years. Traveling's my thing and I do it as often as I can. Posts on this website chronicle the adventures I've had over the decades traveling around western Europe, New Zealand, and beyond. You'll also find the occasional piece of short fiction, novel and WIP excerpts, lifestyle articles--and more. Keep checking back for new posts!

You can also check out Artsy Traveler, my travel website that takes you off the beaten path to experience European travel through an arts lens. On Artsy Traveler, you'll find out about interesting museums, quirky galleries, local performances, and more gleaned from my travel experiences over three decades and those of guest posters.
