Hey, guys! It’s been non-stop since I got to New York so I just have time for a quick hello and to share this cute spot (Epistrophy) where I met an old friend for drinks yesterday. Isn’t it charming?
Have a great weekend and I’ll see you Monday!

After a merry and bright (and rainy and windy) week in DC, we’re heading home today. I can’t wait to finally be home for a while! Have a great last weekend of 2012, guys and I’ll see you Monday. Next week, we’re celebrating FTRB’s 4th anniversary!

So much for my plans for blogging during my trip! The internet situation made it impossible to spend any length of time online. (We basically had either had no connection, a really weak connection or a good connection that was painfully S-L-O-W.) In a strange way, it’s nice to know there are still places left in the world where you’re not plugged in all the time. Once I got over the initial jitteriness, I actually enjoyed being cut off and just being present where I was.
I’ll have to share some of my trip with you but right now, we’re heading straight out of town again to spend Christmas with my family. Even though we just got home, it was the only way our schedules would work so we’re going with it. I guess it’s a fitting way to end an especially busy travel year!
I hope you have a wonderful, merry holiday with your loved ones! See you a bit later in the week!

It’s time! Burma, here I come!
I’ll be away for the next two weeks and I plan on checking in here when I can but internet access is going to be spotty to nonexistent so if you don’t hear from me for periods of time, you’ll know why. If you’d like to follow along on my trip, I’ll be posting real time photos as much as possible on Instagram (@FromTheRightBank) and Twitter (@AllyFTRB). I’ll also be on Facebook every now and then.
Alright then, be well, friends and I’ll speak to you soon. Let the adventure begin!
