My Fema (grandmother) who taught me to take pleasure in the little things, the important things in life and who my most cherished childhood memories are with. She will forever remain in my heart and in my thoughts.

I have been sparsely here or rather not at all.  I meant to, I had good intentions but how can you expect me to miss out on things like: prime time television, sloth and laziness.  Well, fret no longer I say.  I have a wonderful story to tell you of world travel, exotic places, faraway lands and...perhaps I embellish...perhaps. 

We start our journey in the Ukraine.

See, I told you.  World travel!
 Just a hop, skip and a jump (literally) to Poland.

Did I go to Poland for the sausages? 
Yes, yes I did.

Proper Polish setting.


Traditional Polish Attire. 



After Poland we make our way all the way (5 steps) to Ireland.

Celtic Thunder!  Anyone?  No?  Just me then.

Michael Flatley would be proud.


The next obvious step after Ireland...Finland duh!

I may have started an International Incident.
Apparently you can't touch stuff in Finland!


Germany is right next to Finland.  You mean you didn't know that?

Ahhh my roots...unless, my mom was really friendly
with the milk man.  The jury is still out.

The reason my family left Germany?  Fashion, fashion, fashion!


Visiting Israel after Germany.  Gotta say, a bit weird.  Germany was all "Israel is touching me:"  and Israel was all "We were here first, stay on your own side".  Talk about drama sheeeesh!

Wondering if this counts as the Mitzvah; visiting
the Holy Land.  I gather the Rabbi would disagree.

I hate the glare of the glass.  Why not leave it open?  Oh wait, oh yeah.  (see Finland)



Apparently the Philippines were closed today.                                                 

No one gets in to see the wizard!  Not no one, not no how!

France!  Oui Oui and such (seriously? A whole year of French and that is the best i can do?  Ummmm, yeah!)                                                                                                                                                 

I see London, I see France, I see....

I want it all!

 Squeee!!! My favorite destination Ever!

Like a beacon calling to me.

"This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England" -Richard II, Act 2

Only the most amazing person ever!  LOOOOVE HER!
My new buddy and I.  Oh, England I never want to leave you.

Next stop on our adventure...

Don't know what is says, but oh so pretty.

Must have...would totally wear.
 On to my second love following England.

Gordon Ramsay (1/2 Scottish) & George McDonald = 2 reasons to go to Scotland

Want a kilt...want...want...WANT!
Coming to an end of our tour of the world we have...

Capitol One...What's in your wallet?

Sharks vs. Jets

Thank you all for coming along with me on my tour Around the World in 2 Hours.  I just heart Balboa Park.  You should check it out.
