Spotlight: {The Orient-Express}

{Imagine travelling from Paris to Vienna back in 1883 when this most lavish long-distance passenger train came into existence... Today, the ultimate life-time experience encompasses an fusion of luxury cruise, hotel and railway adventures in 25 countries across five continents. World-renowned destinations include the sanctuary of Machu Picchu, the Amalfi coast, the Angkor Wat temple, and Australia’s Blue Mountains...sigh!}

Lovely and Unrelated

{Tuesday already... raining and dark as I write this post at 6:17 a.m. while eating my breakfast... finding less and less time to blog, which is really unfortunate as I have been receiving the most lovely comments from new (and lovely long-time) readers... feel I want to reach out even more, yet the challenge of finding enough time weighs heavily in my heart... have a lovely and fulfilling Tuesday. Linda, xo}

{p.s. still trying to figure out where exactly to place the "facebook like" button... thought to place it within the edit box of the post itself like the "tweet" button, but when I do this, the counter is astronomically high and obviously does not reflect the actual amount of people who have "liked" the post... any assistance would be greatly appreciated, lovely readers!}
