Just the (travel) facts, ma’am

When I started this blog, I thought that people mostly wanted to read about the travel. So I listed here the (mostly) travelogue posts for those who didn’t want to accidentally read what they considered TMI, the touchy-feelie stuff.  Of course, I do tend to filter everything through my viewpoint, which was sometimes painfully personal.

Over the years, I’ve become more comfortable about sharing, and as my readers expanded beyond family and friends I discovered that many people actually appreciate and connect to my sometimes raw honesty. But I’ll keep the list up as a memorial to when I felt my feelings didn’t matter.
