London 015

My name is Jacqueline but I prefer Jackie. I’m a stick-in-the-mud wife married to a man who wants us to see the world together, and I’ve got some stories about our trips. I’m a former English teacher for New York City, and that’s quite another kind of trip – more of a whole journey. I love museums, fine dining, and reading nineteenth century authors, especially Jane Austen. Some will say the nineteenth century is where I belong, but I say the past is prologue. Tomorrow beckons.

    As someone who didn’t get her passport till her late-thirties, I am looking forward to hearing about all of your adventures around the world. I can’t wait to hear about places that I’ve never been to before that I can add to my bucket list. Love the past is prologue, tomorrow beckons–very inspiring!

    Excellent title – for a best-selling book? And to think that I knew the author way back when!
