Venice, Italy

Venice was amazing. The food paled in comparison to the rest of Italy (seriously. we cooked at home here.) & was more expensive, to boot, but overall we very much loved it. I would move to Venice in a heartbeat. It’s small, it’s by the water, it’s full of those pretty little canals, & the…

Cinque Terre, Italy

I picked out photos & got them all uploaded before I realized that I forgot to include any pictures of the towns. The Cinque Terre are famous for the piles of small houses built into the hillside, stacked on top of each other in a dozen different colors & here I am putting together a…

Highway One, California Roadtrip

Sure, sure, I just posted something else from California. Sure, sure. I am not IN California, so it’s a little not truth to be posting things from California trips, but GUESS WHAT. I don’t care. I love this state. I loved this adventure. I love these images. &, to be quite honest, I think you…

Muir Woods, California

Maybe it’s because I’m a little homesick that I am posting this now. Not the I want to go home kind of homesick, but the kind where a good hug from my parents, Momma’s cooking, a cuddle from my little Pipi dog… all these things would make me smile real big right now. I really…

Ugandan National Library, Kampala

Sometimes exploring a new city is just wandering. It’s not having a spot in mind, not having a destination, just going. Just getting out the door. Just seeing the world & wondering where you are & walking. Sometimes exploring like this leads you to places like this: the National Library of Uganda. When I told…

Blooms & Color in Kampala, Uganda

Not much to say on this one except that my main impression for what Uganda looks like is red dirt & flowers. Sure, sure, lots of other things, too, but I am SO DRAWN to bougainvillea at home that when I got here, it just jumped out at me. Everywhere. All the time. & I…

The Baha’i Temple, Kampala, Uganda

Kampala is a crazy city. I don’t mean that in a judgmental way, just in a “this is fact” kind of way. Kampala IS crazy. At least to me & especially as a foreigner (I assume). I’ve talked about it on Twitter before, but there is just so much going on: cars all over the…

Breakfast in Kampala, Uganda

This is not a “traditional Ugandan breakfast” & I actually don’t know what that is (yet), but I will say this: Kampala is very rapidly developing & there are ALL KINDS of foods to be found, including breakfast. Also, you have to buy water everywhere. It’s pretty cheap (about two dollars for five liters), but…

My first days in Kampala, Uganda!

I have reached Kampala safely & happily. After four flights, long stopovers in Newark & Istanbul, twenty-four amazing & jam packed hours in Rome, & an Entebbe flight that landed at four in the morning,  I was exhausted. BUT, anti-jet lag, I took just a short nap & powered through & now I’ve been here…
