    Egg Tarts and other Hong Kong Sweets

    Hong Kong is a town of energy and mystery.  You get the feeling that however many times you visit, you will never completely know the city.  I’m drawn by the crowded and fragrant street markets, the spectacular cityscape, and the melting pot of cultures and people.  You can wander out […]

    Hot Patatjes and Amsterdam by Night

    Afternoon Tea at the Peninsula, Hong Kong

    Wherever we go, Michon and I like to wander backroads and alleyways, looking for the unexpected and surprising.

  • The Unexpected

    The Unexpected

    This is what I love about travel… the unexpected! Karl and I were enjoying the skyline of Hong Kong on Victoria Peak and taking the usual pictures and selfies.  I had noticed on the tram a group of school children and their teachers talking and being noisy as children are. […]

    Sunset over Arches

    One of our many favorite places is Arches National Park in Utah.  We go there to refresh, bond with the beautiful red rock, laugh and play.  We’ll be posting regularly about our many adventures, but for now we had to share this sunset, a magical one, captured near Courthouse Wash […]
