We’re back from Poland

Old Town Krakow, Poland. Another whirlwind trip–so many things to see, too short a time to really take it all in.  I know I have a lot of travel posts to catch up on: Paris, Salzburg, more Munich, and now Krakow. I hope to finish up with all of them before we leave for Texas […]

Paris, France

Well, after looking over my photos from our two-and-a-half day trip to Paris last August, I realized that to overindulge in so much goodness in one sitting would be such a waste.

Dinner in Paris

Alors, I got an email from Mr. DJ this morning: “Enough with the rich food, wine, and late nights! I can’t take much more of this glamorous life.” He is kidding, of course, because the next message was: “But that shoulder of lamb was so good. Maybe I could tolerate another meal…..” I spy… an […]

My long, boring excuse

Gare du Nord, Paris. Photo by Mr. DJ on his Blackberry Pearl. So the whole reason I had to forgo four days in lovely Pair-ee is that last night I had to attend a two-and-a-half hour “Speed Awareness Seminar.” It was the price I had to pay for going 34 in a 30 MPH zone. […]
