When I’m not performing my duties as a recovering lawyer or as a Certified Zentangle Addict Teacher (CZT), I’m a travel blogger. I have an apparently incurable case of wanderlust I can trace to 1963 when my father took us to live in Mexico for a year. I also enjoy writing and photography, so travel […]

She, her husband and two young sons (ages 7 and 9) are traveling the world.
