Determination does pay off...

I'm tickled pink and of course, my blogit family is the first to know. I just go my first real assignment. Last week I felt a bit in a rut, writing for the same sites again and again and I was looking for new avenues. I went through a list of about 60 online travel magazines I had accumulated and...

That's one that can't remain uncorrected. It's of course my friends Jean and Steve, not my fiends. Funny what difference one letter can make, isn't it? Sign in to see full entry.

Last trip in Turkey

Few people are now left here in our complex, but luckily my fiends Jean and Steve who live here year around are among them. There isn't that much time left before I go home to Miami so we decided to go and visit Ephesus on Wednesday. They have never been but I have. Here are two pictures from my...

Vogue's latest enterprise

Didn't I say yesterday, that the blog posts I like most are those which start with the words: Inspired by... Well, I got inspired too by auslander and gapcohen and their excellent blogs and websites outside the scope of blogit. Which is why I decided to strat a blog of my own, dedicate to the single...
