Revisiting My Kitty
Saturday, February 10, 2018      10 comments

Last time we were in Malaysia, I helped care for a kitten who somehow showed up inside a pillar in the hotel's dining room. The hostess adopted him, and I gave him breakfast every morning. He's now all grown up, and the hostess is workin... Read more
We are NOT going to the Maldives
Tuesday, February 06, 2018      13 comments

We should have been in the Maldives by now. In case you haven't heard, the president there has declared a state of emergency. Politicians arrested, the Supreme Court calling for their release but some judges arrested, people protesting in the ... Read more

Time in Kandy, Sri Lanka
Wednesday, January 31, 2018      9 comments

I know, what a name, right? This city was once the capital of the Kandyan kingdom, from whence it gets the name. Lovely city with a lake, a forest sanctuary, a temple with Buddha's tooth, and a big festival each August. We had fun jus... Read more
Baby elephants!!!!!!!
Saturday, January 27, 2018      14 comments

I visited the Elephant Transit Home, which is a rescue center and sanctuary for orphaned baby elephants. It was wonderful, and emotional, and sort of sad because there was one little guy who was recently orphaned and spent a bit of time all alo... Read more
Safari in Sri Lanka!
Thursday, January 25, 2018      15 comments

I went on a safari yesterday - not a hunting safari, a find the animals and be amazed safari! No leopards, but so many elephants! And it was so thrilling, I didn't eat my packed breakfast until it was all over! Now THAT is the way to ... Read more
Travelling in Sri Lanka
Tuesday, January 23, 2018      11 comments

We had a four hour trip to the southern foothills - a crazy winding road that included the rather manic way everyone drives here. We are settled in at our resort, full of flowers and exotic birds. Not that the birds are imported or enclose... Read more
Adventures in Eating in Sri Lanka

We're still travelling in Sri Lanka, though life sometimes intrudes itself. I didn't mean for this to become a food blog, but it did. I've been trying different Sri Lankan foods, and this is the overview, complete with photos. ... Read more
I was Goldilocks today!
Monday, January 15, 2018      15 comments

For people who don't know, my husband and I are retired. We sold 90% of what we owned, and we've been travelling for, well, going on six years now. Without a plan. Just doing all the things we've always wanted to do. We're currently in S... Read more
Sri Lanka!
Friday, January 12, 2018      16 comments

We're here in Colombo, acclimating to Sri Lanka. At some point we'll head to the national parks to visit the leopards and elephants who live there, but we're enjoying the big city for a bit. Though our neighborhood is definitely off the beaten... Read more
Left Mauritius, Now in the Seychelles
Sunday, January 07, 2018      7 comments

Back in the Seychelles for less than 48 hours, and we have an early morning flight. Insanely early. But I had to write a wrap up blog about our time in Mauritius, our tropical cyclone (in our third ocean), and of course let people know the updat... Read more
New Year's Eve, and Maybe a Cyclone
Monday, January 01, 2018      10 comments

We had a spectacular New Year's Eve, with both professional and amateur fireworks displays for several hours. Macarons delivered by our hotel owner. And maybe a tropical cyclone heading our way later in the week. Right now it's not yet ... Read more

We have new neighbors - a family of red-whiskered bulbuls! The parent birds are very attentive, and they have three tiny babies in a rather small nest! rollingluggagers.blogspo

The Sounds of Mauritius
Thursday, December 21, 2017      11 comments

Every place has its own sounds, its own music. I like to think of it as the soundtrack, the music in the background of the action. Just like in a movie. rollingluggagers.blogspo

A Peach Colored Temple by the Aqua Bay
Friday, December 08, 2017      9 comments

I love colors. So I visited this little temple by the sea, a wonderful peachy color against the aqua blue waters. Even the roof was peach, gorgeous against the bright blue sky. rollingluggagers.blogspo
