I returned to the United States on the first day of July, but I feel like I left behind my entire life in Greece. It is a strange feeling, and after almost a week of being back, the strangeness continues to linger. Honestly, this is a very hard post to write – every time I […]Read more "Back, but Not Home"
On a much-needed day off last week, I set off with three companions on another island road trip. Once again I feel the need to mention that if you are going on holiday this year, Lesbos is the place to go. It has a beauty like no other place in the world! On this particular […]Read more "Island Road Trip, Part II – Lesbos, Greece"
I know, I know, it has been a while since my last post, but I think it is safe to say that I am officially running on Greek Time here, and that will not be changing anytime soon. Today was the day I was scheduled to return home (in a few hours in fact), but […]Read more "More Cats, More Time – Molyvos, Lesbos, Greece"
So another update on my adventures on Lesbos… First of all, I feel like I am living in absolute paradise, and it has been fun in my time off to take pictures around the village where I live. Nothing beats the view (in any direction), but especially the view of the harbor. I don’t know, maybe […]Read more "Another Late Update – Molyvos, Greece"
I have some sad news to share from last week. On Wednesday morning of last week, one of the volunteer/staff members was on her way to work when she heard cries of distress coming from the dumpster near her house. When she investigated she found four newborn kittens (about two weeks old); one at the […]Read more "A Hard Week – Molyvos, Greece"
Here is another post I felt was in need of reformatting (I am currently re-doing my entire blog as I was not completely satisfied with how it look, but I’m getting there). So if you missed it the first time, here is a little snapshot of my amazing trip to Seattle last April: Today, I […]Read more "Seattle, WA Norwescon – April 2015"
Again, as I was looking back through old posts, I noticed that this post had bad formatting, so I am republishing it with the corrections, I hope you enjoy it: My birthday is always a hard one to plan around. Most of my friends are gone on Christmas Eve to be with their families for […]Read more "Haiti 2014/2015"
So the first month of 2016 is already halfway over, how crazy is that! I just wanted to give a brief update on my Bucket List plans for this year. I am in the middle of completing one of my goals, which is to “complete at least 2 photo essays in 2016”. My first essay […]Read more "Bucket List Progress"
Over the last few days my phone has been relentlessly giving me Flood and Winter Storms advisories for the county I live in, but I never expected to wake up to a world of white this morning. About five this morning my grandpa, like a little kid on Christmas morning, excitedly came up the stairs […]Read more "Snow Day"
Today I am trying to keep nice and toasty as the colder weather is coming to the beautiful southern Oregon; this happens to be my favorite time of the year. I am a daughter of Norway, a little viking – as my grandfather likes to say. What I love about this time of year is […]Read more "Coffee and Dreaming of Travel"
