HA! And you thought I’d completely blown-off my (near 500 post strong) little travelogue here at TravelnLass.  Nary a single post in February (a first for TL – an entire month without a peck).  I explained why I’ve been a little distracted here lately in THIS post two months ago, and my sentiments back then [&hellip

Barely but a single post in December.  And in the past six months, lucky if I managed to peck two posts a month. Definitely quiet around here. Clearly slowing down. Then again – nearly 500 posts since that first “And So It Begins…” way back in December, 2010 – a reliable post most every.blessed.week for [&hellip

Looks mighty pretty, yes? Um, yeah – pretty and… DEADLY POISONOUS! Towit: According to National Geographic:  “Almost all pufferfish [a.k.a. “fugu” in Japan] contain tetrodotoxin, a substance that makes them foul tasting and often lethal to fish.  To humans, tetrodotoxin is deadly, up to 1,200 times more poisonous than cyanide.  There is enough toxin in [&hellip

lol – given this arguably significant 7 year anniversary – how could I NOT re-post above ↑ the pic of my pathetically empty apartment in Seattle before I flew the U.S. of A. coop precisely seven years ago? Now then, that said… g-knows I’ve got my hands-full here lately – primarily with a new mega-project [&hellip

TravelnLass by Dyanne - 10M ago

Goodness, but this little ol’ cobbled-street (and fabulously beautiful!) town perched atop an 8,000+ foot Andean mountain in Ecuador – just keeps getting better ‘n better.  I’m talkin’ about my adopted (and beloved) home of Cuenca.  Indeed, just as my own swift slide into World-wide foodie-dom has manifested since I flew the U.S. of A.

When last we left off, I was paying my respects at the Hiroshima Peace Park and gawking at the glowing torii gate on an after-dark boat trip on Miyajima Island.  Indeed, a most memorable 24 hours in western Japan.  But then it was time to hop back on a bullet train and return to Kyoto [&hellip

Thanks to a Japan Rail Pass and those swift Japanese bullet trains, in my short visit to Japan (just 12 nights) I was able to zip to the far reaches of the country in a matter of hours.  Indeed, with my Rail Pass, the cost of whizzing from Kyoto to Hiroshima (along with both the [&hellip

  Ah Kyoto – such high expectations I had for you! In my diligent Japan pre-trip research, you were UNANIMOUSLY lauded as THE most favored destination within Japan.  Without exception, folks verily SWOONED over your countless ancient temples and shrines, your sublime gardens, your Zen tea houses, and your demure Geishas . . . What [&hellip
