Hello everyone!! For the past several weeks I've been posting new travel articles on my website: If you haven't had the chance to check it out yet, please do so! If you've subscribed to my email list here at, you should also be receiving newsletters from my new odyssey site (since I moved all email addresses over). If for some reason you're not, you can subscribe yourself manually on my new site (right-hand column), or leave me a message here and I'll make sure it gets taken care of! It's been a whirlwind couple of weeks for us. To make a long story short, our recent excursion to Thailand landed us some contacts in Bangkok, which in turn has led us to the decision to relocate there...this week! The haze crisis shows no signs ... read more

First off, let me apologize for the long delay between blogs. I try to get an update out at least once a week, but sometimes that's easier said than done. This week we've been busy shopping for and getting moved in to our new place, which did not have internet until this morning (also a reason for the delay). But now we are moved in, getting settled, reconnected to the outside world, and ready to share it all with you! Other than a day trip to the nearby Cameron Highlands (which is coming in the next blog), I don't have a whole lot to share in the way of sightseeing. Last week consisted mainly of trips to IKEA, Tesco (like a Walmart), and a variety of shopping malls to purchase the items we'd need for our ... read more

And what exactly IS a "candle princess," you're wondering?'s me! Allow me to explain. Candles are made of wax, correct? And what does wax do in the heat? It melts. What do pathetic westerners (such as myself) do in the heat? We also melt. The Malaysians call people like me "puteri lilin," which literally means "wax" or "candle" princess. I'm fairly certain it's the way they make fun of us high-maintenance, I-can't-believe-how-hot-it-is types, but as long as they say it to my face, I'm okay with it. I'll even laugh along with them (as long as they make fun of me first and THEN take me inside where it's air-conditioned). Besides, it's true. I figured since I spent the first 27 years of my life in Florida that I'd have little problem adjusting to the ... read more
