An American Author in Dubai: Last Day in the City of Sand and Glass

When last we left our adventurous author (me) she was wandering back to her hotel with dreams of sea creatures keeping her cool. As she rushed through the sliding glass lobby doors of her hotel to escape the clutches of thick desert air, she'd didn't realize she that sun wouldn't scorch her skin again for a long time...

An American Author in Dubai (Part 2): An Ocean in the Desert

When last we left our adventurous heroine (that's me), she had just landed in a peculiar place and was bravely fighting the urge to fall asleep thanks to the sleeping spell put on her by an evildoer called "The Time Zone."

Traveling with the Travelers: Stories of Seashores and Lobster Wars

I live a relatively land-locked life near the Eastern US coast. The closest my family and I get to sailing is a swan-shaped paddle boat on a lake. That was until a recent trip to New England where I discovered the thrill of the open ocean and the stories it can tell...

Traveling with the Travelers: Judging a New England Town by Its Bookstore

I have two philosophies when it comes to travel. One: Choose one location and delve into all the nuances and quirks of that one place. Two: Visit as many different places in a general location that will reasonably fit into the length of the vacation. Regardless, I make sure to always visit the town's bookstore.
