A Virtual Vacation: Susanne’s Travel Posts

Monday Author: Susanne Skinner

Contrary to my prediction of last week, Susanne has not yet rejoined us on Mondays.

A Virtual Vacation

Belgian frites stand, travel posts, virtual vacationBecause I did a collection of her 2020 posts last week, I’m going to fill her spot today with something completely different. We both enjoy travel and have written posts about our travel experiences. As this is August, prime vacation time, my plan was to publish a virtual vacation with a selection of our travel posts.

Then I got started and changed my mind. Given how much Susanne has traveled, I was amazed to discover that she has written only a few travel posts. Who’d a thunk it?

Rather than clutter this up with my stuff, I’m just publishing Susanne’s travel posts. Your virtual vacation starts here.
