  • Here fishy fishy fishy. Gone whale watching.

    Destination: Maui, Kauai

    Travel is hazardous to fingernails. I've only just sat down in seat 6B, and I've already ripped off two, one from each hand. But I don't mind. I've come to see my ragged fingernails as something else--a sign that I am once again doing that thing I love: traveling.
