Bright Pink and Delicious – Aloha from Maui Series

Mondays adventure in Lahaina was to the Maui Dragon Fruit Farm, which is the largest one here on Maui! Mom was on the fence about going because she says dragon fruit doesn’t have much flavor and I would’ve had to agree. The only times I have had it there wasn’t much flavor but I think they […]

Aloha from Maui

Mom and I are not doing your typical things in Maui. Neither of us lay out on the beach and she is not real big on hiking or bathing suits, but we are having an awesome time just relaxing  and listening to the waves. Except for one day, I’ve watched the sunrise every morning.

Maui Pineapple – So Delicious!

Our first tour here in Maui was at the Maui Pineapple Company and Distillery! I would highly recommend this tour. Mom and I had a great time. The last time I had fresh pineapple was in Okinawa in 2002. After the tour you get a FREE pineapple per person so we have been eating a lot of fresh pineapple. Nothing compares to fresh pineapple or fresh fruits and veggies in general.

Korean BBQ Buffet in Atlanta

Off on another food adventure – this time Korean BBQ Buffet in Duluth, GA! I love trying new restaurants. My friend Eileen introduced me to this place. If you stop by, let me know what you think!

Korean Spa Day in Atlanta

I have been wanting to go to the Korean Spa FOREVER! I finally got to go for my 43rd Birthday! Yes I know that was at the beginning of the year and I went in September but hey that’s just what happens. I went with one of my dear friends who is always up for an adventure.

A Little Turkish Fun in China

Experiencing a little but of Turkish food and belly dancing in Chengdu, China. Who would have thought!

Our Stay with the Nomads

We walked from town of Tagong into the mountains with a guide and stayed with a Nomadic family for the night. What an experience!

Horseback Riding in the Mountains of Tagong

I adore the grassland mountains of the Kham area of Tibet. The mountains are so big but with their lack of trees, they remind me of huge rolling hills. Horseback riding over these fabulous mountains was sheer pleasure and was one of my favorite activities on my 6 week journey through Tibet, Chengdu, China and India. I would have loved to have spent more time riding in Tagong.

Ear Cleaning at the Dinner Table in China

This fall I had an amazing opportunity to go to China, Tibet and India for 6 weeks. I am going to finally be writing a few posts on my experiences! The first full evening in China we went to Sichuan Opera and Dinner. This was interesting enough all on it’s own let alone when you add ear cleaning at the dinner table to your experience!

Poetry in the Heart of the Dragon: Guest post by Elizabeth Mira

Elizabeth Mira is an artist, a survivor and my friend. She was my partner in crime trying to figure out ways to bring all the furry creatures home with us; learning that although I loved horseback riding, it is not for her; and taking a hit for the team as she ate the tsampa and yak cheese graciously provided to us from the Nuns in Tagong, Tibet and so many more crazy adventures it is hard to tell you about all of them.
