  1. View from our hotel. The black schmutz is a result of crap on the window.

  2. Some of the wild dogs of Sofia, sleeping in the park.

    We let them lie. (SEE WHAT I DID THERE?)

  3. Angel of commerce, downtown Sofia.

    What? Not ALL the relics of Communism are eyesores. SHEESH. Capitalist jerks.

  4. Wrought-iron gate at the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral.

    Not only is it pretty – it keeps the packs of wild dogs out, which is nice.

  5. Rand gets contemplative (near the Russian church).

    Mostly, we were contemplating why it was so damn cold.

  6. Public fountain near the NDK – the National Palace of Culture.

    I’m too mature to make a comment about “Ginormous balls”. Oh, wait … No. No, I’m not.

  7. This is not a pipe.

    It’s actually several of them.

  8. Rusted gate near a church in downtown Sofia.

    I’m not sure what this says, but I’m pretty sure it has something to do with The X-Men.

  9. Forbidden peanut. Look familiar? This guy last made an appearance in #7 of my somewhat naughty pics from London. It somehow went rogue, migrated to my purse, and traveled with me to Bulgaria. Where, maybe, JUST MAYBE (I’m so not admitting to anything) I thought about eating it BECAUSE HOW GREAT OF A STORY WOULD THAT BE? before Rand slapped it out of my hand. Maybe.

    I named it “Sarah.”

  10. Outside a church in downtown Sofia, with some dude.

    I have another version of this photo where I’m flipping off the camera, but it seemed inappropriate, what with the church and all. (Translation: I thought I looked fat.)

  • Here it is, folks. The paperback edition of my book is out today. The hardcover came out more than two years ago, so it's wonderful to know that this story of mine still has life and is, gasp, still selling copies. Don't miss the book that Lauren Graham called "the travel companion you'll be happy you brought along" and that some guy on Twitter said was "immature and stupid." It's available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Indiebound. #bookstagram #summerreading #bookworms
  • This lady. ❤️❤️❤️ So proud of her.
  • HAPPY LAUNCH DAY!! I really want to curl up in bed with this amazing novel today, but I can't - for an amazing reason. Because I'm going to be at the Lake Forest Park location of Third Place Books tonight, discussing it with the author, my dear friend @andreadunlop. Lady, I'm so proud of you. ❤️ ❤️❤️ #bookstagram #summerreading
  • Baking in an AirBnB is always an adventure. I didn't have a measuring cup for the flour so I eyeballed it, and had to use a wine bottle as a rolling pin to make these handpies. Not my best work, but @demeritt and @randderuiter seemed cool with the results, so I'm going to accept that sometimes good enough is, well, enough. 🥧🍴
  • "I hit the jackpot." That's how I once heard Michael J. Fox describe his marriage years ago, and it stayed with me. I've never found a better way of describing our relationship than that. Bells ring. Lights flash. Coins spill everywhere. Now, where's my complimentary breakfast?
  • Someone sent Rand socks with his face all over them, and he's really bothered by this but I'm gonna rock the hell out of them.
  • I told him to stop looking at the camera.
  • Eating junk food on the ferry with this guy right before dinner is kind of the dream.
  • Does it still count as photobombing when you love it?
  • Some hardcore stuff happening in the studio today. #muglife #ceramics
