2021: Update: Flying Off to Austria

Thanks for sticking around, Traveler! So, right now, I’m traveling through Austria. I should have boarded a plane two days ago – Sunday! And I’m probably feeling some jet lag right about now. (And, God-willing, that I survived the flight, took a trip around this beautiful country, and made my way home safely.) My sister is… Continue reading 2021: Update: Flying Off to Austria

2021: Traveling in Your Own Backyard

Yep, I've gone into landscaping. Give us a call if you need someone to dig in a tree. 😉 The other day, I read a NY Times article on Roff Smith.

2020: Last Day of Summer

A couple of weeks, I strolled through Stony Brook Village with my dog Cookie. We caught the sunset and watched several dog walkers go to and fro while we wore our masks and kept our distances. Life isn't how it used to be since everything went haywire back in March. Right here in the village… Continue reading 2020: Last Day of Summer

2020: What’s in a Name?

A Self-Portrait in Parque Retiro, Madrid. “What’s in a name?” Shakespeare once said, or at least one of his characters said. The name Susanna has been used for more than thirty years of my life. I’ve taken pride in it now, especially since I own my own blog with my full name. However, back when… Continue reading 2020: What’s in a Name?

2020: Road Trip to Granada: Day 3: Alhambra

Inside the Garden of Eden. Er, I mean, the Generalife. About a month ago, I booked tickets in advanced to enter Alhambra, which is known as the Red Castle in Arabic.

This is an example of Magnificent Islamic Architecture and this was constructed… Continue reading 2020: Road Trip to Granada: Day 3: Alhambra
