...when you're having fun!Do I need to reintroduce myself as I emerge from my dark, dusty corner of the blogosphere? The past two months (I seriously can't believe that much time has come and gone since last I wrote) have been quite the adventure:Mitzvah DayWhat do you get when you help organize 300 members of… Continue reading Time flies…
In addition to Gainesville, I was also in NYC - twice. The first trip was for work (with a bit of fun thrown in), the second for pure theatre-geek fun.me with @stineval, dishing over a glass (or two) of wineenjoying Heather and Mike's company(and hospitality... the lady makes the BEST vegetarian lasagna, for reals)PS. Mike… Continue reading Wordless Wednesday (or Where I’ve been, part two)

Bom dia!After our long, treacherous hike to the Moorish Castle yesterday (my thighs are killing me), we decided to take a much-needed day of rest (it might also have to do with the fact that I slept until noon-- in my defense, I stayed up 'till 2). We did go to a grocery store, Lidl,… Continue reading A day of rest
Today, we traveled back in time with a visit to the Moorish Castle in Sintra. I took over 100 photos, so I whittled them down and put them into a video. Enjoy!
Lots of sightseeing today. Our first stop was Cabo da Roca (literally the End of Rock), which is the western most point in Europe.Pictured below: 1) I inadvertently lied the other day when I said aloe grows in abundance here. Apparently it's a plant commonly referred to as the Dangerous Invader because of how quickly… Continue reading The winner takes it all
