"Reminiscing" kyoub's Profile

Just thinking how I would like to be back in Malaysia, with my feet in the beautiful clear water.

I am a birdwatcher and Nature lover

We have been to many countries to see the birds and wildlife.
Costa Rica, Panama, Mexico, Belize, Fiji , Seychelles, Australia and South America.

Some of my favorite experiences ;

Costa Rica when we got to witness the turtles come ashore to lay their eggs in the sand.

Watching the humpback whales breach along side our boat in Hawaii.

Walking among the Magellanic penguins in Chile

Seeing the little blue penguins on Kangaroo Island.

Watching the Proboscis monkeys eat their pancakes in Borneo

Looking at the beautiful birds in Tobago, Panama, Costa Rica, Texas, and Thailand

Nature is such a spendid thing to observe.

I love cats

Everyone needs a furry friend or two, or three, or four........
Even on vacation.

Cats make purrfect friends. I have nine.

You will always be lucky if you know how to make friends with strange cats.
(Colonial American proverb) They bring you presents!!

Wear natural fibers....hug a cat.


We love to travel, so far we have been to:

Asia -Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Singapore.
Central America-Costa Rica, Panama, & Mexico
South America - Chile, Argentina, and Uruguay
South Pacific-Fiji
Oceania - Australia
Caribbean-Tobago, Trinidad, Virgin Islands (US&British),
St.Kitts, Nevis, St Eustatius, Curacao, and Bonaire
US - Hawaii and several states.

Fun ride

This was quite an experience, riding on an elephant in Thailand.
If you would like to read more about it, look at my Ao Nang page.


I could not wait to get to Uruguay and I was not disappointed.
It has been a So. American secret for years but word is now getting out about their beautiful beaches. Our hotel was amazing, read all about in in my Punta del Este page.

    Hi Kay. Happy Holidays. Was looking into going to CC and on to Kingsville, but not easy to do when you don't drive.

    Hi Kay, sorry for the delay in writing but I have been sick with a bad case of bronchitis. I just want to thank you for the lovely postcard from San Antonio! I hope you had a great time there. Texas and San Antonio have been on my "wish list" for a long time now -- hope to get there in the next few years.
    How are you feeling these days???

      Sorry to hear that you have been under the weather. Hope you are feeling better. San Antonio, especially the river walk, is fabulous this time of year. I just went for a quick trip with my son. I hope you make it to Texas in the spring or fall for bird migration.
      I am fine thanks.
