June 2017

June was honeymoon month, something I’ve been looking forward to since the wedding last year. The cruise was great and we visited some amazing places (Oporto, Barcelona, Villefrance/Monaco, Rome, Naples/Pompeii, Cartagena, Gibraltar), but it was also quite tiring and non-stop on the port days. I did manage to get a fair amount of reading done, and the balcony view (see featured image) was an amazing place to relax. Continue reading “June 2017”

May 2017

(I should have posted this at the start of the month, but got caught up in sorting the holiday. Oops!).

This January was no different, and I hope that some trends continue throughout 2017 while others die as the days get lighter and longer… Continue reading “January 2017”

Now on Facebook

I decided to go ahead and make a page over on Facebook for the site, so please head on over and like away! While I’ll be linking to here and SFFWorld.com when my reviews go up, I’m also aiming to use it as a more general platform for all my random thoughts. It likely won’t have an abundance of content on a daily basis, but there may be a nugget or two every so often that may be of interest…
