That's My Desire

Over fancy jewelry that comes in little blue boxes; over high-end phones or gadgets that cause a line when the first day of sale arrives; over expensive clothes I will tire of or grow out of; over pricey hair cuts; over keeping up with the Jonses, or anyone else. Over all this: I will always choose travel (food being an integral part of the experience).

Each day in New York City, I pass legions of suitcase-lugging tourists. It's with a happy and grateful heart that I announce I will soon be a suitcase-lugging tourist myself in the cities of Barcelona, Madrid, and Lisbon and hitting the road throughout Spain (think Mario Batali and Gwyneth Paltrow, but without all their money!)

This humble little blog is on hiatus as I prepare, travel, and recover from it all. I shall be back, hopefully full of sangria, vegetarian paella and a lifetime of memories. Hope to see you then.
