IMG_3726Since moving abroad, this blog has served as a great way to document my adventures, post photos, and generally keep friends and family in the loop. Currently, I live in Dubai but I believe that I am still in a bit of denial about not living in Istanbul anymore. Dubai is very glamorous but it is no Istanbul. To be fair, I feel that way about every city… it is not Istanbul. However, I am slowly recovering and I do occasionally travel around the globe. I will also share those adventures as well.

All things considered, I hope you enjoy reading this blog and perhaps it will help your mind wonder a little bit into a different world.

    Hello Ms Wachowiak! Not sure if you remember me but I’m Emily Bonilla from Thurgood Marshall and I was in your 4/5 combo class in 2008-09! So great to see you continue teaching and take beautiful photos just as I remember! Hope you’re doing well!
