I like big books and I cannot lie…

You know how we all have little idiosyncrasies that make us weird special? We sometimes aren’t even aware of something being strange until someone else points it out.

What do IContinue reading “6 Steps to Become a Morning Person”

Ischia

I left Positano and headed to Ischia next for several days before heading to Lake Como. I knew I would be swimming so I didn’t bring my camera so all of these pictures are from my phone! I stayed at a great place by the port without doing any research about the island but IContinue reading “Ischia”

Before leaving town…

As I’m getting ready for my next trip, I thought I’d share some of the things I do before to prepare! Make a copy of your passport. Keep it with you (not in the same place as your passport) and I also emailed a copy to my boss and my parents. This came in veryContinue reading “Before leaving town…”
