More air miles

I've enjoyed having nearly two months without any travel.  Unfortunately, that changes tomorrow, as I'm headed to India once again.

I'm looking forward to:
  • Having time to read books on my Kindle (I have seven in the queue)
  • Temperatures that are 100 degrees fahrenheit warmer than they are here.  That's not typo.  It's really 100 degrees warmer there.
  • Some good Indian food

I'm not looking forward to:
  • More than a week with no dog training
  • Missing a puppy party 
  • Missing a local obedience show-n-go
  • Not seeing my family 
  • The inevitable digestive upset

This year looks like it's shaping up to have at least as much travel as last year.  So far I've got plans for:
China, Singapore, UK (twice), Portland, San Diego, Germany, Brazil (maybe)

I'll try to find something fun to post from overseas, but this time I'll be spending pretty much all of my time in a conference room (yippee!).

P.S.  If anyone's got any "must read" books that you've come across lately, please let me know.  7 books for 16,000+ air miles just doesn't seem like enough...


  1. As I was reading your post, I saw the "Some good Indian food" line and chuckled, yea, great, but won't it kill your gut.....followed by "The inevitable digestive upset", so I guess it will. I LOVE Indian food, but I have a feeling "the real thing" would do me in.

    It's great when some of my Indian co-workers bring in homemade food though :-)

    Have a safe trip!

  2. I just bought and read "The Winning Edge" by George Alston as a primer for the conformation ring. It's a fast read and available on Kindle :)

  3. Someone gave me a hard back book for Christmas. I'm looking at it longingly as I pull stuff together to take to the puppy party, but it's bulky and heavy -- when did we get so spoiled?

    Have a good trip Lani. Maybe Pete will do some obedience work with Rip?

  4. I'm liking the book by Lisa Scottoline that I just got: "Why My Third Husband Will Be a Dog". The whole book is made up of witty little 4 or 5 page stories. Nice and easy to read.

    Have you seen the games you get for your Kindle now? I put a couple of them on mine the other day and am enjoying them.

    Maybe we can meet up when you come to Portland! You can get your Cardi fix!

  5. If you're into fantasy books, there's a really good series called "A song of ice and fire" by George R. R. Martin. I have re-read them quite a few times because I love them so much and there's always something you realize you missed the last time you read it (plus, I'm trying to keep it fresh in my mind for when the next book is released). There are 4 out right now:
    1. A Game of Thrones
    2. A Clash of Kings
    3. A Storm of Swords
    4. A Feast for Crows

  6. If you haven't read it already-"Wolf Hall" by Hillary Mantel is a great read, especially if your're a history buff. It's a wonderfully written (2009 Booker Prize winner) and surprisingly sympathetic account of Thomas Cromwell. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and its 2 companion books are really good too.

  7. I had Chinese food in Mexico. Once. And only once.

    We will miss you at the puppy party!
