I have a new friend. No surprise the friendship was found through the Nelson Montessori where Vince is happily ensconced after his 7 months of social isolation (poor child, traveling the world is so lonely:). 
Kim and I met for coffee today and had so much to share that we kept digressing and covered everything thing from global warming to the neuroscience behind our forgetful mommy brains. 

Amongst this talk I discovered she is a successful author of a number of books,  one in particular of special importance to me: Disappearing Destinations by Kimberly Lisagor. In the books foreword Pico Iyer writes about what we can do about the places we love that are at risk of disappearing before our eyes: 1) visit them and 2) speak up and work for their survival. I hope that our blog will inspire all of you to do both. 

As we traveled through some of the most beautiful and meaningful places on earth it was not lost on us that in perhaps even a few short years, these places might be irreversibly changed: the melting glaciers in Norway, Cairo and the incredible collection (recently looted) at the Egyptian Museum, Petra and Pompeii where millions of tourists walk, touch, litter,  sadly the list goes on and on. 

So, go touring now......

Today is your day.
You're off to Great Places!

You're off and away!
