This blog started as a way to share my travels with friends and family back home. It evolved a little when I made a bigger move overseas and grew to incorporate posts about the dogs, exercise, books, food, etc. That wasn't my original intent but it's what happened.
Last year I didn't really go anywhere. I had plans but then Tex got sick and shortly thereafter we lost him. It was a huge emotional blow and I'm still not over it. On the same day my car engine blew up. Seriously! I lived a bad country song for a little while. In addition to the emotional trauma of it there was also a big hit to my bank account. So my travel plans were put on hold.
I wasn't the only one to be hit very hard by Tex's parting. My other (much older) dog also lost her best friend and she was clearly very depressed. I felt like I had to do something or I was going to lose her, too. So after a month I brought home two foster dogs from the rescue where I volunteer. They came to the rescue together from the same house and I didn't want to separate them.

However, I do have travel plans for this year! And I have travels about which I have not yet posted. So I hope to get back to this blog and tell you about some trips I've taken in the past and what my plans are for this year. I'm excited!
Do you have travel plans for this year? What are they?
