“The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.” — Saint Augustine.

I picked part of the quote for my web blog title since I enjoy both traveling and books. Initially, I wanted to use blog to keep my travel journal and to share photos with my friends and colleagues. When I ran into a couple of blogs, I began blogging and reading posts regularly. It has been a wonderful learning and sharing experience.

Traveling is always fun, exciting, uplifting, and inspiring.  It gives me a great pleasure to see the beauty of nature, taste different wonderful cuisines, and appreciate history, people and culture a little better. With limited vacation time, my husband and I have to choose places where are easy to access. Other than the major cities and a number of National Parks in U.S., we have been places in Canada, England, France, Italy, Greece, South America, Egypt, Japan, China, and Thailand. Some of travel photos got lost during relocation. I keep the memories in my heart.

Savory always makes us happy. When we travel, we like to try locally produced food. When we are at home, I enjoy cooking and have learned to prepare various kinds of foods from blogs.

I find gardening is rewarding, when the temperature is right, water is plentiful, and you know about planting.  These don’t always happen at the same time.  So, I keep trying.

Keep on blogging, keep on traveling.  Eat well, stay well!

  3. My friend, Chaplain Bob Ossler, and I have a special interest in this particular posts. Chaplain Ossler served at Ground Zero after the terrorist attacks in 2001. He counseled many heartbroken people-families of victims, emergency services workers, construction workers and many others. He wrote his heart wrenching encounters with these heroes and victims of 9/11 in our book Triumph Over Terror, published in 2016. I have taken the liberty of reblogging your post on our site http://www.bobosslerchaplain.com. I hope that is okay. We love your pictures. They show the resilience of New Yorkers and stand as a symbol of hope to our country. Thanks for sharing these pictures.


    • I so look forward to read this book. Thank you for making an effort to give a review. Thank you for reblogging. Glad you like photos, it was a rainy day so the quality of these photos is not so great. I add your recommend to my post and will do another later on one of my upcoming post.

  5. I invited you to join in the THREE day quote challenge – no pressure to accept – but if I don’t let you know, you might not notice the invite. It is from karen (book blogger) and the only rules are to post 3 quotes for 3 days (not even right in a row) and then invite other bloggers to join (or all of your followers generically)
    but no pressure…

  6. I am doing a cross country trip to Pacific Coast, Southwest and Midwest this summer. Have been to Texas and taking many pictures there.


  7. Dear Amy, I changed my blog to private and I sent an invitation to you too as all my blogger friends. But I noticed that in all other word press notification my invitation can be missed. I think you did too. If you wish you can send a request to me or I am sending another invitation for you through word press. Please be sure, I would be so glad to see you again in my blog as before. Thank you, Love, nia

  10. Amy, I’m just thrilled you stopped by my blog so I could find my way back to yours. Your photos are phenomenal. I have never traveled–I feel St. Augustine was talking about me 🙂 , but I’d love to, and it’s those travel photos that make me yearn to see other places. I look forward to following your blog 🙂
