My Guilty Pleasure

Scarves are my guilty pleasure. I probably have about 40 at home and when I travel I have absolutely no self-control.

Cruising the Backwaters

We finished our last day in South India on a houseboat cruising the backwaters of Kerala. After finding ourselves in some not so great hotels this past month, it was nice to be put on a luxury boat. We had our own rooms with king size beds, personal bathrooms, AC and 3 men that waited […]
