I would love to tell you that I am a blithe, free-spirit who will captivate you with my amazing adventures. Alas, in reality, I am a somewhat compulsive, “woman of a certain age” who dabbles in photography and technology, especially anything Apple, and loves to travel. That being said, I hope that you will still find what I have to share with you somewhat interesting.
My name is Susan, just like about about 40% of other women of my generation. I live in San Jose, California with my husband and yellow lab, Gabby. I have a grown daughter and son and four wonderful grandchildren.
I was a diabetes educator before I retired. I counseled people with diabetes and worked for LifeScan, a Johnson and Johnson company which manufactures blood testing products. During my last years with the company I traveled for them to Europe and Asia and my love of traveling took off from there!
I took a wonderful trip to South Africa and Zimbabwe in 2015 and just returned from Europe and Israel (September 2016) I post photos and narrative almost daily on my travels. You can follow my trips in the “travel” section of this blog. My online travelogues become the basis for a book about each trip, which I publish on Blurb.
As I have become more interested in photography, my blog has evolved primarily into a place to share and collect my work and host a weekly photo challenge called “Macro Moments”. I also regularly submit photos to various challenges on WordPress.
In addition to my photos and travelogues, you can expect to occasionally hear about life with Gabby and our therapy dog visits to Ronald McDonald House, my family and friends, and my home and garden.
I love “meeting” my fellow bloggers and photographers, and connecting with family and friends in this space. I actually got to meet Pat, from Chronicles of an Anglo Swiss, live and in person in Basel, Switzerland on my most recent trip. Our lunch together was a highlight of the trip! Can’t wait to read your comments and learn from each other!
