Do you see me?

Found this spot in the middle of Singapore's business district. I love unexpected finds like this.

I spent a couple of days in Singapore last month while I was on my way to Delhi for a business trip. •
Thanks to a women's-only travel group I'm part of, I met up with a local and she showed me her favorite spots in Singapore, like the Altitude Bar, which is a fantastic place to watch the sunset.

Have you ever met up with someone you met online while traveling?

I went to Joshua Tree last weekend intending to take photos of the stars but my husband's car broke down after a few hours in the park. We'll try again some other time.

Have you had a trip that didn't go according to plan?

Yellow tulips make me happy.

What's your favorite flower?

I'm not traveling too much this summer because I love the weather in the Pacific Northwest this time of year.

Do you like to travel in the summer? Or do you prefer to stay home?

The rolling hills of the Palouse.

I've lived in Washington state for 15 years and only managed to visit the eastern part of the state this year. Wish I had visited earlier.
Do you like to explore where you live?

The bear grass is in bloom at Schweitzer Mountain resort. Had a wonderful time hiking, horseback riding and enjoying the beautiful area.

Throwback to the time I went glacier trekking with @abak_trips. Also managed to do a little ice "climbing," which was more like ice "falling."

It's incredibly sad to see how fast the Mendenhall Glacier is retreating so go see it while you still can.

Christ the Redeemer became one of the new seven wonders of the world in 2007.

Have you seen any of the new seven wonders? I'm just missing the Great Wall of China and Chichen Itza.

In my last post, I mentioned that the sun came out on my last day in Rio so I rushed to the top of Corcovado (again). Here's the view I was treated to.

I went to Rio for a quick weekend getaway last year and it was pouring and cloudy the first day. I went up the mountain to see Christ the Redeemer but there was zero visibility.
On Sunday, I went to the top of Sugarloaf and had an amazing view of the city. On the way down, the clouds started to part, finally revealing Christ the Redeemer. With only a few hours to go until I had to be at the airport, I took a taxi and rushed over to Corcovado Mountain. And I made it to the airport on time. Some risks are worth it.
Have you ever missed a flight because you didn't get to the airport on time?
