I’d like to hope that when I leave this earth, my family and friends believe something about me giving as fully as I could. To the people I love and to the areas of culture that excited me to build things. Then a lot of dancing, loud music and talking about what an idiot I made of myself during that process.

  • Layla, This trip looked amazing!!! So cool, glad you had such a great time. That for sure is a once in a lifetime experience…. Your artwork is great, you have a real eye for perspective, that is very hard to teach.

  • Great journey! Keep travel! Keep posting! I started to travel when I was 20 years old. I was late. There are so many beautiful places on this Earth. Best regards!

  • Thanks Rhonda…we were a bit hesitant at first bringing along the girls, but in the end, we were glad we did. When we are together at Holidays, we bring it up constantly. Hope all is well and Happy New Year!
