Where in the World is Elena Maria?

A Traveler's Reality Check

For those of you that follow my blog, you may be 
asking, "Is she still in Prague?" since that is the only
place I have posted from so far.  The answer is ~ far 
from it ~ literally,  We are on the other side of the
world in Japan right now.  I have not been blogging
much because I have been having a wonderful time
on my trip.  I learned a big lesson on my last round
the world journey, it all goes by so fast and you should
enjoy every minute.  So that means I have not posted 
everyday as we have been traveling.  On the last trip
I often missed dinner or another fun thing to do so
I could edit photos and write the blog so I could get 
up to the minute reports out.  I learned that was foolish,
there will be plenty of time to blog once I'm back home.
I'm imagining sitting in the gazebo with an iced coffee
and a cute doggie at my feet.  So stay tuned, more photos
and info of the sights, the food and the adventures are
to come.  Including bumping into a friend in Turkey,
riding elephants up to the Amber Fort in Jaipur, India
and getting assaulted on the street in New Zealand.
But now it's time for a nap...


  1. I figured this out my friend as I've made the same mistake! Every trip from here on out: a quick daily journal entry on an app so I can remember each day, then once home Blog, post pics, and of course made a digital Shutterfly scrap book!! I'm loving what I'm seeing!!!
