An Introduction

My 4 year old passport has reached the end of its useful life, a year short of its intended lifespan.  Yes, I have ran out of pages.  Which brings me to start this blog, to document my adventures and mis-adventures in the most beautiful places around the world, and eventually, maybe, inspire some people to create their own :)

Let me introduce myself, I'm Marti, and I'm a travel addict :)  I'm a single, thirty-something girl, living THE life. When someone asks me "How's life?" my reply is always the same... "It's all great and I can't complain."

I am blessed with great friends and family who love to travel and just hang out but I have a select few travel buddies who have entrusted me with their passport details and given me consent to book plane tickets, without consulting them (it goes both ways).  On more than one occasion, some of them (us) have woken up to plane tickets in their (our) mailboxes with no clue. You know how those airline promos go, they start at 12 midnight... and well, the rest is history.  Just 2 days ago, I booked 8 plane tickets to Osaka at 3am.  Hats off to Cebu Pacific! I have them to thank for leveling the playing field, gone are the days that traveling costs an arm and a leg.

Here are a few of the places my purple suitcase has been to.... for 2010.


I have a whole passport worth of stories (and pictures) to share, so there will be a lot of catching up to do.  

 So, here's to livin' it up!
