Frederick of the Havannah Resort in Vanuatu asked me last night if I wanted to join everybody for a cocktail and watch the Fire Show. But honestly, I don't have any interest in New Year's Eve celebrations with a bunch of couples from Australia who just want to be left alone to their own devices....

These Vanuatu geckos are getting used to me screaming at them now. I spot their shadows as they cautiously approach the threshold to my villa and immediately clap my hands while warning them in a loud voice to get the hell outta my room. They scamper away. Not messing with this crazy woman, they ...

Frederick, one of the owners of the Havannah Resort, stopped by my breakfast table to ask how things went last night with my walking tour of the village of Tanoliu. I couldn't stop saying enough nice things about my experience. Resort life is not a real life, it's manufactured, but the villages a...

The first several days at any resort are often best spent just getting acclimated. For me, that means crawling to the beach and staying there and later working up oneself to check out the pool. At this resort in Vanuatu, I have a pool on my deck, which overlooks the water, and a private path to m...

It seemed like a good idea to get a manicure a few days ago, but now that I'm looking at my nails I'm wondering why I bothered. You would think that it would be hard to chip a nail for a woman who does nothing more strenguous than lifting a glass of champagne while on vacation in Vanuatu, but som...

At the moment, I am sitting upright with my laptop computer in my lap, furiously typing so I can finish and move. A B52 bomber just flew through the doors on my deck, buzzing my right ear, and rammed its head into my sofa. I am not turning around to look where it crash landed. Although I do have ...

The escrow officer who handles most of my sellers' real estate transactions often goes to exotic places to SCUBA, and I have always been in awe of her ability to do that. It's not quite the same thing when you're watching fish on television, even if the cats seem to enjoy the action, as when you'...

I'm not quite sure I get what all the hoopla is about when it comes to women traveing solo but then I never have. I recall an incident in the early 1980s when I decided to go all by myself from Orange County, California, to Negril, Jamaica, to a resort I had never been to before. Everybody though...

My husband sent me a text message this morning asking if I was leaving Eratap Resort today. Why, no, it's tomorrow on Christmas Day, I told him. I have a massage scheduled this afternoon. Hmmm . . . he could swear my agenda that I gave to him before I left Sacramento reflected a change of resorts...

In spite of the fact that I am vertical in Vanuatu, it seems like I am still sound asleep. That's because the sun is out, so it's time to rise and shine, even though it feels like I just went to bed which was, let's face it, a whole 6 hours ago. Ah, my penance for sitting at the Eratap Resort res...
