It’s All Maya!

If Life is an illusion, then why do I keep banging my head against the wall?

Si la Vie est une illusion, pourquoi je n'arrête pas de me taper la tête sur les murs?

Final Stop: Lima, Peru

January 14th, 2017 · By Lynn

Most of the information I had read about Lima on the internet was, “Don’t waste your time going to Lima.” But how could we not? After traveling so far, we couldn’t just pass up Lima like it was some small town instead of the capital of Peru. Patrick and I decided to spend five days […]

Cusco After The Sacred Valley – Not Before

December 31st, 2016 · By Lynn

The Plaza de Armas, Cusco. Patrick and I had headed straight to the Sacred Valley before attempting to visit Machu Picchu or spending any time in Cusco. Slow and steady was our motto and it’s the best way to adapt to the altitude. By the time we arrived in Cusco a week later, we had […]

Aguas Calientes, A Stepping-Stone To Machu Picchu

November 27th, 2016 · By Lynn

Getting off the train, our first look at Aguas Calientes. The Statue of Inka with the symbolic condor and puma. After a few days in Ollantaytambo, Patrick and I headed to Aguas Calientes. I had read that A.C. was a town that was under-whelming and overpriced. A place you had to be if you wanted […]

Peru Here We Come!

November 10th, 2016 · By Lynn

  Part One: Ollantaytambo First of all, let me say, this was the best trip I had ever taken. The reason wasn’t only the gorgeous scenery of the Andes Mountains, or our lifelong dream of seeing Machu Picchu, but in large part it was due to the people of Peru. They were the nicest people […]

Home Again

January 31st, 2016 · By Lynn

Smooth sailing. Some trips go without a hitch, others are a disaster. When Patrick and I left in January to go see my mom we were optimistic that our trip would be as smooth as the one we took to Asia. There’s a saying in France, Les jours se suivent, mais ils ne se ressemblent […]

Sea, Sun, And Friends In The South Of France

October 22nd, 2015 · By Lynn

The end of September Patrick and I took a short holiday for a few weeks to the Côte d’Azur. It was a little crazy as we criss-crossed around France. First, we went down to Saint-Mandrier-sur-Mer, a small isle on the Mediterranean, to visit friends for a week. Jackie and Gégé call this place home for […]

Our Trip To Macau

August 21st, 2015 · By Lynn

Last Stop:  Macau The new part of town. I love the different color buildings… …and the Portuguese influence. Patrick and I made a last minute decision to go to Macau because it was only a boat ride away from Hong Kong. The interest wasn’t in the casinos, especially if you’ve been to Las Vegas as […]
