A Bali Readathon #1: Revolt in Paradise

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 …

An Off-Season Quickie to Ibiza

Ibiza off season was completely on purpose (and partly because of the crazy cheap flights, yes) but I am glad we went against the crowds.

A Stormy San Diego & A Singing Amtrak

I couldn’t help myself gawking out the window, to a slightly excited Pacific breakers, thinking about the time I saw its waves from the other side of the ocean .. when someone suddenly started singing on the loudspeaker.

“I love your redwood forests

Love your fields of yellow grain

I love your summer breezes

And I love your winter rain..”

It’s a gorgeous say outside, folks! then he continued by telling us about the temperature and time left till we reach San Diego. … More A Stormy San Diego & A Singing Amtrak
