  1. Wow! Really enjoyed this one. The pictures are great and it’s like taking an armchair trip to so many interesting places! I also appreciate that my email inbox isn’t jammed with your communications—just the right amount! Thanks for that, too! Looking forward to the next post!

    • Hey Ellen!! Thanks so much for the wonderful compliments and feedback. I really appreciate that. Also a relief to hear I’m not spamming you 🙂 🙂 If only I could find more time! Hoping to get a few more stories out about Belize, Easter Island and Galapagos Islands before the New Year. My sister, Bree is coming out at the end of December so that will be a big, great distraction 🙂 Have you read the books yet?
