Locally Sourced and Loving It in St. Lucia

Locally Sourced and Loving it in St. Lucia First I felt the itch, then the raging burn. I ran like a bat out of hell from the greenhouse, not entirely sure what was making my feet feel like they were on fire. It was my first attack by fire ants and it was horribly unpleasant. Usually, I might grumble and moan all day about the pain, but I gave it only a second before shaking it and moving forward. There was no time to dwell, as I was...

Skipping the Beach on Aruba Vacations

Skipping the Beach in Aruba With a threat of endangered bats bound to fly into my hair, I was not crazy about climbing the steps to the mouth of the cave.

Taiwan Biking by Land, Sand, Sky

Taiwan Cycling by Land, Sand and Sky   As I rounded the nineteenth corner of the road for that day on my rickety bicycle in one hundred degree heat, I was sure I wouldn’t make it. Each stretch went on for eternity, with an ever so slight incline that was just enough to make my legs scream. But the humidity was the worst. Water bottles immediately went warm and I felt almost blinded by the sun. However, once in a while I’d pause...
