We’re all guilty of dreaming, aren’t we? When I’m not traveling or planning the next getaway, I often take great pleasure in daydreaming, looking back on my travels and drooling all over those mental Kodak moments. So while I’m plotting the best itinerary for a Hong Kong Microadventure, (stick around) and dreaming of the white … More My Best Room With a View Moments Around the World
We were off to Bali with a pretty sizable list of things to go and places to see – as always.

Most unfortunately, my daring plan to cover 5 different books during my 30h flight to Bali failed miserably!
This, when my Kindle app got into a squabble with my Spotify app.. Then my Samsung tablet couldn’t handle the pressure anymore and just abandoned me, mid-reading!
Leaving me crying – most literally – because I then had to entertain myself with movies and I made the mistake of watching …
