    A collection of articles that feature all aspects of travel, lifestyle and general scribblings that may be of interest

    There are so many observations, funny happenings, moments of observation in life that it is not always possible to pin it down to a specific category or heading. They are those times where you experience and simply would like to share.  This is why I have created the Featured articles page. Perhaps it will not always directly concern travel but it will be about something, someone, someplace or some memory. Hopefully it will entertain or be thought provoking.
