Where the heck is Liz, anyway?!?!!
Am I the only one or are others asking what is new? It seems you haven't posted in some time. I hope this doesn't mean something unpleasant but only that you are working hard and have not had time or not been on any interesting trips recently.
When do you expect to have something new for us? I get a bang out of reading about your adventures.
To John, and anyone else who's been wondering, I am happy to report that I am still here and doing well. I took a little break from the daily demands of the web site, which ended up being a much longer break than I intended!
I am happy to know that there are folks who are still interested and enjoy following my escapades! It's very encouraging to know that you are out there.
I have mostly been sticking closer to home in the last year, although I did have a really amazing trip to the Big Island of Hawaii (where I nearly got swallowed up by an active volcano!) that I have been meaning to chronicle on the site. I also want to finish My Italian Adventure, so watch for more of that coming soon.
But the most exciting news is that I am currently planning my biggest, most ambitious journey ever: a giant, 8-month around the world, including India, China, Japan, Turkey, and other destinations yet to be determined, with departure date this November. Right now I am busy earning money so I can take off the time for travel, and doing research and making connections with folks around the world who may provide help or advice.
In conjunction with this, I have started working behind the scenes to implement my plans for a total re-design and upgrade to the WhereIsLiz.com web site, including latest technology like podcasts and rss feeds, and a reader's forum. I want to bring as much of the raw experience directly to you as I can, to truly give you the sense that you are traveling along with me.
I've got some questions for you, too, dear readers... Where would you like to see me go next? How did you discover WhereIsLiz.com? What improvements would you like to see to the site? How do you think I can introduce more readers to the site?
Looking forward to your responses and ideas,

A little sad piece of news...
I read the other day that the famous ravens at the Tower of London are being kept indoors because of the spread of bird flu.
BBC News article here. This is just one more indication that if you yearn to travel, do it now. You never know when circumstances will change, and things you would like to experience can be altered or gone if you wait too long.

A fresh start, a new adventure:
Thanks for visiting... I know that there hasn't been a lot of action on WhereIsLiz lately, but all that's about to change. In the next few weeks there will be major upgrades in both the look and content of this site, so don't miss out! Watch this space for more news on the coming attractions. You'll be amazed where WhereIsLiz is going!

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." -- Mark Twain
If a new horizon beckons, but you feel some nervousness about going it alone, this class is for you. We will explore the rich benefits of solo travel and address the challenges of being a woman on her own in a foreign place. Topics include effective strategies for dealing with fear and loneliness, safety issues, developing intuition, using common sense and discovering your own courage. A materials fee of $5 is due to the instructor at the start of class.
Register for this class
Location: Falkirk Cultural Center, 1408 Mission Ave. at E Street in downtown San Rafael. The Falkirk, a Queen Anne Victorian and national historic site, is unique because of its historic nature, pleasing environs and proximity to Central San Rafael with plenty of free parking.
