Travel: Day 2 – Bath, Somerset, England

After my numerous heart attacks, and white knuckles and the urge to throw up at every roundabout craziness known to  (most of) the world as driving on the wrong side of the road, plus  in our case, through the winding countryside roads in rain and high wind getting to Bath from Stratford-Upon-Avon, we finally arrived at ten in the morning and parked our car in the paid parking lot – hoping to grab breakfast and then sightsee about the town. My friend who lives in the ‘said town’ two hours from Stratford, was irritated to say the least, since this was the first time she drove outside of her comfort zone in rain and wind. Let it be known she is a temporary transplant from US to UK. Also note here that the last time I was in Bath was twenty years ago. So you can imagine my surprise seeing a town transformed into a modern version of what I had seen several decades ago. The first change was the added  boutiques and shops along …

stroll along the neighborhoods in san francisco

I love the city, but hate the cold summer days near ocean beach. So, I decided on sunday to ditch the car and go for a walk. A long walk across town from SeaCliff to  inland, aiming to get to Fillmore street in time for lunch. I had originally planned to walk to the Golden Gate Bridge, but the cold and windy weather discouraged that idea. Of course all of this had to happen before the US-Portugal soccer game at 3pst. Along the way, I took photos as usual, of things I felt stood out, captivating me someway or another. Of course I had to censor the addresses 🙂

europe trip – here and there

London day 6 proved to be a better day, although very cold, I walked mostly through the financial district, modern apartment and condo neighborhoods and wondered what it would be like to live in the city, since I’m also considering information for my future move to Europe. Mostly to live somewhere I can speak the language – England or France. So, I have to say I was enlightened by every detail and have now added London to a possibility for my move – of course that is if they will have me also 🙂 Until my flight to Paris, I have decided to add a few night photos of the city of London – a surely romantic stroll along the river, proving it to be worth while.

panoramic photography: boredom at its best?

Lately, I’ve sat around and waited it seems forever for people to arrive. Whether because I’m meeting them in a mall for coffee or lunch in  a park . So, outside of checking emails and Facebook and every other non-interesting online distraction, I switched my phone camera to panoramic setting and clicked a few photos, playing I suppose.  🙂

my first novel – piazza navona

I hesitated posting a blog entry today, which I do on occasion, while thinking about the topic and then I walked into my office this morning to discover that my first novel hit Amazon Kindle  and is in queue to become available through other e-book means: iBookstore, Sony, Barnes and Nobles, Kobo, Copia, Gardners, Page Pushers and more. My first reaction of course was that I was shocked and happy and then immediately got embarrassed for the fact, people I knew were going to read my book. 🙂 Strange, very scary and at the same time invigorating. I am proud. Very happy and a little emotional. Whatever this book does in sales, I have one thing to say. I achieved a goal I set for myself and fulfilled a dream. Now I can smile every single day, for the rest of my life.
