Two More Miles!

I love nature!  Trees, oceans, the fruit of the land, waterfalls, leaves, animals (mostly the non aggressive ones), etc.  I think a reason for my affinity to nature is the fact that I grew up on an island, and near the beach.  I was that kid that was always climbing trees, and stealing mangos from the neighbor’s tree, on my way …

Hopeless Wanderer

When I was a little girl, I often would stare up into the sky and wonder how I could reach the rest of the world.  You see, I though the clouds represented other islands, countries and even continents.  I’m pretty sure, that is where my love for travel began.  I remember twice climbing on the roof of our house in …

I spent a couple of days with my good friend, Lidia Maier Serra, and her beautiful family at their home in Bad Rippoldsau – Schapbach in Germany.  During my visit, she took me out for a walk around town, and we made a stop at the Dorotheenhütte Glashütte Wolfach Museum.  The building is divided into a work area, a store, and …

Beauty in Simplicity

Confucius once said, “Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.” Sometimes I agree with that statement and other times, I wonder if Confucius got it all wrong, I have many scars and bruises which I have sustained just from living a somewhat normal life.  Although, as I examine my experiences, I realize what I call a normal …

As many of you …

Limits No Longer Apply

“Moving fast is not the same as going somewhere.”  Dr. Robert Anthony Someone asked me what I liked most about Europe.  My response was everything!  I cannot think of a single thing I do not like, starting with the wonderful people and their rich history, the beautiful landscape, the delicious food, Michael Ballack (one of the greatest football players in the …

Paris, France

Je t’aime, Paris! Ever since I can remember there have been images in my mind of what I thought Paris, France would be like.  I never thought I’d ever had the opportunity to visit, but God most like me a lot, I’ve been able to go to Paris twice and another time to a different region of France.  How crazy is …

Going to the Mountains

Beba Schlottmann Going Places Leave a Comment

Oh how I love the mountains!  My ideal winter vacation is to disappear to a secluded cabin somewhere on the Georgia or Tennessee Mountains (or any other mountain with a glorious view of green everywhere!).  I love the idea of wrapping myself under a thick fuzzy blanket, drinking hot tea (or coffee) with my feet spread on the coffee table, while staring …

Trinidad

Here’s my official shout-outs to all my Trini friends back in the island and those spread around the hemisphere! It was the summer of 2003 when my husband and I took a team of about 23 people on a missions trip to Trinidad in the Caribbean sea. Our group consisted on mostly college age students and a handful of older …
