Perast, Montenegro

It's a new year! In recent years, I've done the usual blogger thing.  A post to recap the prior year.  A post to talk about my "word" for the new year and the intentions I've set for myself.  A post to recap the holidays.  A post to lay out my travel plans for the new year.  I always loved the opportunity to look back and look forward.  This year, I'm not going to do that.  It was obviously a rough year.  The past six month have been particularly difficult and I've looked back enough.  I have no idea what the new year has in store and i'm not ready to challenge the fates with a "word" this year.  However, I'm feeling more like myself than i have in ages.  I'm finding my way.  I'm fitting in travel and adventure, while enjoying being so close to my family again. I'm learning the lessons.  I'm laughing again.  I'm hoping the desire to blog again will shortly follow.  But, for today... more photos.

Whirling Dervishes of Lefkosa, Cyprus

It's time to start blogging about our week in Cyprus.  Honestly, I'm having a difficult time writing currently.  Lots of changes and my free time is limited.  Not to mention all of the "stuff" I'm processing.  But I'm just going to get started with the photos and hope the words eventually catch up.  This seems like the perfect place to start.  Seeing the whirling dervishes in Lefkosa was a definitely highlight of the trip for me.  Moving as an act of worship and meditation has been around for centuries.  This particular ceremony was mesmerizing and so peaceful to watch.

Budapest Bastion

I'm off today on my first trip since moving back and also my first US city break.  I loved all of our city breaks in London and it's something I hope to continue here.  So in honor of that here are my last bit of photos from our Budapest trip.  The Fisherman's Bastion was a great place to take in the views of Budapest, Hungary.  Up, up, up in the furnicular to stroll around in the sunshine. Budapest was definitely one of my favorites.
