With the travel lately, I’ve found some things I’ve enjoyed. ‘Thought you might too!
* * * * *
PacSafe bag for walking around in foreign lands is the cutest little guy. It has wire in the straps so that they can’t be cut. It also has a a zipper lock so a thief can’t rummage around behind you.
Here’s me post juicing diet…ha ha….This Tommy Bahama suit from Nordy’s has nice coverage on the top (and serious underwire). The bottoms are small enough to feel like you’re doing the tropical bikini thing, but enough coverage on the tummy with this ruched fabric deal, that I feel okay and not like I’m out there in the wind. Best suit (and most expensive, I might add) that I’ve ever owned.
Dansk0 sandals for walkin, walkin’, walkin (without blisterin’)…I love how cute these are, because many comfortable shoes for trips are not. I’ve been wearing them for a test and all is well.
Aveda UV hair protector (here)..this stuff really works. I had an orange hair incident in Hawaii once and it was enough to send me in a tailspin of product searches for UV protection. It smells nice too. Tropical sun has some serious power, as my peeling face will attest…at least my hair survived intact!
Beach/airplane/train reads…I read four books on our trip (!) and loved them all. One was an oldie that you all probably read years ago (“The Pilot’s Wife”), which I thought was good…but these three were fabulous.
“Blue Like Jazz” is a book by my pal Elida’s college friend Donald Miller. He is brilliant. Like I-want-to-spend-all-day-talking-to-him brilliant. He’s Christian writer who has written a ground-breaking book. It just came out in a movie recently, which I can’t wait to see!
“The Go-Giver” is “one of those books” that can change your outlook on everything. I will re-read it again soon. A little parable about what we need to do more of in our lives.
“The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake” Very unusual story with some twists that had me up late reading. I found it at the resort and I’m glad b/c don’t know if I ever would have picked it up on my own.
Here’s hoping you get out there on the open road soon…or at least get some moments to chill with a good read on your back patio.
Be back soon...CIAO for NOW.
