Greetings everyone! I am counting down the hours until I leave for the Philippines. It's been a very long time since I've been there last. I am a little scared and anxious, but at the same time full of joy and excitement. I am looking forward to enjoying every moment of it. I will also be going to Malaysia and Cambodia. I just found out a few days ago, that Thailand is in the works...keeping my fingers crossed. I'll be traveling from LAX via Honolulu and then Manila. Until next time...enjoy one of my favorite poems by Robert Frost. I always read it before a big trip and attach a copy of it in my journal so I never forget.

Happy Trails...until next time...

The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,

And sorry I could not travel both

And be one traveler, long I stood

And looked down one as far as I could

To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,

And having perhaps the better claim

Because it was grassy and wanted wear,

Though as for that the passing there

Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay

In leaves no step had trodden black.

Oh, I marked the first for another day!

Yet knowing how way leads on to way

I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh

Somewhere ages and ages hence:

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,

I took the one less traveled by,

And that has made all the difference. 

Robert Frost
