The warm-weather luggage

The warm-weather luggage

I left San Francisco on Jan 12th at noon. Crossing the international dateline means the 13th only exists for a few hours in the sky. My body doesn’t know what time it is though it’s just daybreak out here in Singapore. It certainly knows hunger better than jetlag right now! The blog won’t be updated as regularly but the reading continues. After all, reading is an integral part of vacation, at least to me. I finished John Grisham’s Sycamore Row all in one sitting on the plane. Not a bad way to kick off the trip.

    • Thanks Marie! I’m taking a Thai cooking class, going to morning chanting at the temple and browsing what I think is the best bookstore in Asia. 🙂

  1. Enjoy … Looking forward to your comments on your holiday reading.

    • Thanks. I finished Sycamore Row during my flight from San Francisco to Bangkok. The courtroom twist is perfect for longhaul travel. Just finished The Spy Who Came in From the Cold.

  2. Have a great vacation! Takes lots and lots of pics and be sure to tell us what you are reading while there.

    • Thanks Tina! I just finished The Spy Who Came in From the Cold and am starting a book by Elizabeth George. The bookstore in Bangkok has so many paperbacks of books that are only available in hardback back home. I got Goldfinch.

  3. Have a lovely time and good reading on the trip. I enjoyed Sycamore Row when I read it in the past year. It kept me interested and had much to say.
