“All the pussies are on the bus. Let’s go,” said Margaret, our supremely patient and cheerful bus captain. And so all the pussies went to Washington. Ten buses from Ann Arbor, Michigan, alone. Fifty-five women of all ages on board each of them. Rumor has it that every coach in Michigan was rented for the [...]

  Six months. That’s how long it’s been since my last post. Can’t say this long silence hasn’t bothered me. It’s been like an itch in a place I can’t scratch. I also can’t say I haven’t considered throwing in the towel for good and letting my little opus slide silently into the blog boneyard. [...]

  Happy New Year to all my friends and faithful followers. As I’ve said many times: you make my travel rich and, always, you are the reason for this blog. Every time I think about quitting. Every time I’m tempted to just let my little opus slip quietly into the maw of the digital beast, [...]

Merry Christmas!

  Yesterday I was whining to myself about not having anything special for my Christmas Eve blog. Nothing cool like this video from Quinhagak, Alaska. Nothing remotely interesting like this light show on the side of a building across from Rockefeller Center in New York City that entranced me on a Christmas Eve walk down [...]

    Seen in a coffee shop: “Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming, WOO HOO! What a ride!” I like the [...]

  So much for commitment. I was ready to go, remember? Ticket in hand. Gear collected. Bags packed. I ticked off details instead of sleeping. I was supposed to have left…last Monday. My daughter’s little family had been bumping back to normalcy. The baby was almost a month old. Dad and big brother were doing [...]

  “Buy this ticket.” Click. You are in your living room, surrounded by all your cozy and familiar things, and now you’ve gone and bought a ticket that will take you hundreds of miles away to a strange and unfamiliar place for the next handful of…days?…weeks?…or in my case, months, where everything from the language [...]

My travel attitude adjustment http://www.wanderingnotlost.org/2013/09/my-travel-attitude-adjustment/ http://www.wanderingnotlost.org/2013/09/my-travel-attitude-adjustment/#comments Fri, 27 Sep 2013 00:38:38 +0000 http://www.wanderingnotlost.org/?p=3810

  My name is Kate, and I’m a shy person. I’m also an introvert, which I guess goes with the territory. This doesn’t mean I can’t make eye contact or that I sit in a corner sucking my thumb. It doesn’t mean that I don’t enjoy conversing with people; in fact, I love hearing people’s [...]
