When an invitation came, I jumped on a plane and…voila – Thailand! I’m on a small, sunny island in the south, creating and editing books, developing websites and content for clients, and settling in for a stay of indefinite duration.

Where are you heading next, physically or creatively? Bon Voyage!!
