Armchair Travelers

We’ve got the virus du jour this week, so our weekend was dead and our week is only showing a hint of vital signs.  To boost our spirits–and maybe yours too–I’m posting some old and new travel/life abroad photos.

Hope you enjoy!

And finally, a shout out for my home country on this anniversary of September 11th--at the statue of Pocahontas at Jamestown (the first permanent English settlement in what would become the United States).

    1. Thanks–all better now! Those old photos from Turkey are from about 14 years ago–I’m just starting to pull them out and convert to digital, and it’s a joy to relive the moments and memories as I do that. I think a trip back, with kids in tow this time, is definitely in order
