A Cheer For Travel Website Operations Folks

Today I’m going to shamelessly put my travel-writing on hold and revert to my normal geek-gal state.

National Geographic 10 Best for Families

It is utterly miserable in Seattle today. It’s April and it snowed. It’s grey from horizon to horizon and even my thirsty garden is starting to appear sodden.
