About

I love to laugh, travel, and write. I’ve been incredibly fortunate to visit 51 countries and look forward to continuing to explore this fascinating world we live in. I’m currently working with the wonderful folks at Automattic, focusing on HR. This is my personal blog.

  1. Congratulations on being freshily pressed! Great photos! I am glad that you have been able to travel so extensively. Do you have a link to your photos of Italy? I would love to see them. Thanks.

    • Thank you! Believe it or not, Italy is one of the countries I’ve never traveled to, but would like to. Hopefully it will make its way on my itinerary in the next couple of years. 🙂

      • Hey, Lori!

        I have traveled troughout Italy, with the exception of southern Italy, although I did go to Pompeii. If you travel to Venice, here is a great place to stay:
        http://www.monasterystays.com/?a=search#type=city&id=224&venue=VEV119
        It is the Casa Cardinal Piazza. The price was ONLY 40 Euros a night, and the meals (including a full bottle of wine, a full bottle of water, and all the courses) were only 15 euros per meal. It is difficult to get fed in the city for that much. It is in the Canareggio section (which faces Murano), and there are no bridges to cross with your luggage. The waterbus stop is Madonna del Orto. As you see from the description, each room has it s own bathroom.

        In Munich I stayed at one of these hotel, and was very pleased:

        The prices were great, but you can only eat breakfast there. K + K is an Austrian hotel chain. They never build new hotels, but only take over existing buildings, which is why they do not have locations in Florence and Rome. Speaking of Rome, the place to stay is here:

        It is a guest house run by the Vatican (it is actually right behind the Vatican), and you can get singles, doubles, triples, and quads. I believe the meals there were only 14 Euros. The 46 bus stop is right there, and that will take you to any bus connection that you might need. It runs from the Vatican to over by the Pantheon. Avoid restaurants on the Conciliazione (the street in front of the Vatican) and Piazza Navona. Safe and fun travels!

  2. Hey! I thought I’d let you know. It looks like your blog is on freshly pressed (287 steps later post) but if I press the link to it, it shows me that huge red alert “danger danger” note. It says the site might damage your computer and blah-blah-blah.
    My husband checked it on his computer and it’s shows same.
    I then typed the name of your blog in google and it let me open the site all right.

    We think it’s a kind of a wordpress bug and I hope the support team can help with that.

    • Thanks, Joseph! Good luck with your travels. I started traveling just when I was just slightly younger than you, so visiting 44 countries is definitely doable. Good luck!
