Highlights of my Week in Sydney Australia

Highlights of my Week in Sydney Australia My trip to Australia was ten years in the making.  In December 2006, I had a plane ticket to Sydney.  I canceled it because I felt overwhelmed with the planning process and I was only going to stay for two weeks.  I realized it wouldn’t have been enough time.  This will be the first of several posts and photos of my 4...

Goodbye 2016 – My end of year review.

Goodbye 2016.  2016 is one year that I am glad is over.  There were some highs and a whole lot of lows. I use to believe that how you start the first day of the year is a sign of how the rest of the year will go.  The first day of 2016 I was sick from treatment, but I was with someone I cared about, and I felt optimistic about the future.  It wasn’t a good sign...

What I did during my 14 hour London Layover

It took me a decade to go back to London.  Not because I didn’t want to.  Life happened, and my plans changed.  Unfortunately, I was only there for the day on my way to Bangkok.  I left Friday, August 7, 2015, at 6:20 pm and arrived in London at 8:05 am on Saturday.  My next flight didn’t leave London at 10:05 pm on Saturday.  My total travel time to...

Highlights from my trip to Rome Italy

Highlights from my trip to Rome Italy I instantly feel in love with Rome.  I love the streets.  I loved the food.  I loved the history.  I thought to myself; I could live here.  So many of the streets remind me of being back in New York.  I can’t believe I only had five days.  I didn’t go to any other city in Italy.  Just Rome. And I’m glad I...

Survivorship Care Plan

Survivorship Care Plan After being diagnosed with breast cancer, I was given a survivorship care plan from my oncologist for the next five years. The plan listed how many doctors visits and some of the side effects and risk I could experience in the coming years. I felt like I was waiting for the cancer to come back. So I created my own plan. The first two years...

Dreaming of Paris

Trip October 20, 2005, thru October 25, 2005   If you asked me as a teenager what country I dreamed of visiting it would have been Paris.  I was in love with Paris so much that I took two years of French in high school.  Now how much I remembered is another thing.  Learning the language is not as easy as I thought it would be.  I thought my love for the country...
