Bangkok Visit

In City & Streets by elyktra / January 2, 2014 / 0 Comments

Near the end of 2013 I had a short trip to Bangkok.  Unfortunately it was all work and no play.  I did take a quick trip out to the amazing infinity pool which literally hangs off the edge of the building. The food was absolutely amazing everywhere we ate and it only solidified my affinity for Thai food and all the wonderful flavors it brings.  You do need to be careful if you order spicy…their spicy is a bit stronger than our spicy.  Luckily I like it hot! :-)

Vietnam Visit

In City & Streets by elyktra / August 3, 2013 / 0 Comments

I had the wonderful opportunity to briefly visit Vietnam recently. It was primarily work related but I did arrive a day early and took a day trip down the Mekong Delta by boat along with some meandering about Saigon. Although always a humbling experience to visit a developing country, I was taken in by the people and how amazingly friendly and welcoming they were. I’ve had experiences in the past where the invasion of personal space was overwhelming and I never felt infringed upon during this visit. Knowing there are many more beautiful places to visit in the country, I’m definitely looking forward to more trips and further adventures. I’m sharing one image which I’ve processed so far but will be including a link very soon to a gallery of images from my visit.

Weekend Dream in Paris

In City & Streets by elyktra / June 11, 2013 / 13 Comments

I had the lovely honor of taking my 84 yr old grandmother to Paris.  It has been one of her dreams which she didn’t think she would have fulfilled.  We were able to see all of the sites that she wanted to visit and I’m still amazed how she was able to keep up for the long trek around the city.  I can only hope to be as active as she is when I reach that age!
