Amongst the Rice Paddies

On our last night in Indonesia, about 5 weeks after our arrival, I dreamed deeply.  I dreamed of rice.  It was puffy, white.  It fell slowly – like large flakes of dry snow during winter. Ever so softly the rice

French School – Week 1

Just a quick update from Aix.  The kids returned to school this week and let me tell you that between France, French and our round-the-world extravaganza, it’s been quite the transition.  Out with the old and in with the new.

Our home away from home in Aix; Talia spinning.  Judah snapping the pic.

Notre été de Mécontentement

There are periods in life where it seems nothing goes right and everything goes wrong.  That’s just life.  I get that.  I may not necessarily like it, but I get it.  I also know that what differentiates people is how

Ode to Skinny Grays

My fam left New York in Janvier for France. We turned right, not left.  Yes, intentionally. Running shoes and gray flip-flops were my only prance; We began working our way on t’ward Italy. Hawaii our first stop, and then we

View from our car...

G.O.R.E.

This is our Great Ocean Road Experience. Coming from Wall Street I guess it is fair to say that Armon and I are used to managing risk – to the upside and the downside.  What else can you say about

Summertime finally arrives...

A Divine Comedy of Provencal Proportions

While the French football team has hogged central stage in the unfolding farce I’ve lovingly nicknamed WC 2010 – Les Bleus, Les Miserables, we’ve been living out our own adventure in Provence.  Our first few months here have been far

Ready to roll around Melbourne

The Tan and Other Things to Do in Melbourne When You’re Dead…

We ultimately visited three of the larger cities in Australia.  Sydney, Melbourne and Perth.  From my vantage point, Sydney is the most well-known and was truly the metropolis I expected.  Be it television, movies or some sort of formal education

Main Beach sand castle

Loosa Noosa

Noosa was the perfect antidote to Sydney. The somewhat sleepy beach town is located about 140 km north of Brisbane and 1,000 km north of Sydney, along the Sunshine Coast. I wasn’t sure what to expect with Noosa, but I

Needles

I hate needles. My mom used to have to hold me down.  Along with at least one other nurse.  In 7th grade, a friend of mine with diabetes shared her needle secrets with me.  We were on an orange school

Sex, Shopping and Sightseeing in Sydney

Let’s handle these in reverse order. And first, let me set Sydney’s stage.  We flew in from Queenstown via Christchurch and landed around dinnertime in Sydney.  Once back on the ground we went through our normal routine of getting our
