This blog site began in late April 2016. My intention was to document our sabbatical year (2016/17) travels home and abroad. As the sabbatical ended, I realized that I really enjoyed blogging and sharing our musical and wine experiences and decided to keep posting for another year. Suddenly another year has passed and I am still at it!
