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.

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. 🙂
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:
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!
Thanks for these recommendations!
Great blog! I love your pictures and most your slogan. Life for sure it worth living!
Warm greetings from south of Germany.
Thank you! I saw the slogan for my blog on a piece of artwork in a restaurant in Hawaii. I felt it was the perfect sentiment for how to enjoy life! 🙂
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 for letting me know. I’m not sure why that’s happening, but I’ll look into it.
Wow! 44 countries?! That’s amazing! How long do you think it would take me to visit as many countries as yours starting at my age 20? Amazing blog too!
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!
44? did you have been to Indonesia?
I have been to Indonesia, but only to Bali, Java, and the Lombok islands. I’d love to return one day; it’s such a gorgeous country!
thank u for visited to Indonesia. I live in Jakarta (Java Island). One day, i hope i could meet u Lori..
Love the picture of the Church up there. Did you take it?
I did! That’s one of the Russian orthodox churches in the Kremlin in Moscow 🙂
Love your image of the interior of the done at St Peters. Can we use it in a Tafelmusik brochure and on our website to advertise a concert of music from Rome? We are a not-for-profit orchestra in Toronto, and would give you a photo credit. And happy to send you a few CDs as thanks! Let me know: firstname.lastname@example.org
Adore your writing style, Every post feels like I’m right in the moment. Safe travels!
I love the idea of living a little every day! That is such a great motto. 🙂
