Hi, I'm Angi
Welcome to my corner of the internet! My passions include travel, photography, books, music, Japanese language and culture, Italian language and culture, and art.

Here at Abbott Lane you'll find my thoughts on these topics and much more. Thanks for stopping by to visit!

1) Found an all-day bike tour to take in Bali, and I'm THRILLED. It sounds amazing - pedaling through rice paddies, visiting homes and villages, coffee tasting...I can't wait!

2) Speaking of Bali, picked up a book today called "The Birdwoman's Palate" about an epidemiologist traveling through Indonesia. It doesn't get the best ratings, but it sounds like an interesting mix of food, politics and life. I decided to grab it despite the less than enthusiastic reviews.

3) It's weird how meditation, after you've been doing it a few years, really helps you react to tough situations differently. There have been a few things lately that I would've handled in a completely, and less optimal, manner five years ago.

4) Organized upstairs a little. Feels better to me. Not so chaotic.

5) My Japanese app started hitting me with my first Kanji today. OH MY GOD HELP.

6) Weird thing about me - really tall, pointy looming things give me a major case of the willies. Things like this statue known as Mother Russia, this fjord in Norway, and the cathedral in Cologne all give me a super case of the NOAPS.
