Smorgasbord Blog Magazine – Coming Soon – The Travel Column by Debby Gies – And #Happy Birthday | Smorgasbord – Variety is the spice of life


Well, now that Sally Cronin has let the cat out of the bag, I’m thrilled to share this lovely birthday post that Sally put up on her blog today. Besides the birthday wishes, we have a treat in store for all of you coming soon!


Smorgasbord Blog Magazine – Coming Soon – The Travel Column by Debby Gies – And #Happy Birthday


Very excited to welcome D.G.Kaye.. Debby Gies as a new columnist for Smorgasbord. I know how much everyone has enjoyed Debby’s travel posts from her archives and was delighted when she accepted my invitation to write a column on a regular basis.


To get the ball rolling, she will be giving us the low down on how to plan and prepare for a cruise to ensure no hassle and plenty of enjoyment.

In three parts every fortnight from Monday 18th June, she will then move to a permanent monthly spot.

Debby has become been such an amazing supporter of the blog and contributor since early 2015 and apart from sharing my posts all over social media, her guest posts have always delighted and informed.

Apart from promoting her new role here on the blog.. I also wanted to wish her Happy Birthday. According to her Facebook profile she is 113!  She looks amazing for her age and is clearly a testament to her attitude to life……

Debby likes her cakes gluten free.. so we can all enjoy a slice or two of this one. Could not fit 113 candles on.. we don’t want a fire hazard.

  1. Congratulations on your new endeavor, Deb! I’m sure it’s going to be very popular and a lot of fun!! Looking forward to reading, though I have to admit, I don’t travel much these days. Still, it will be fun to read your thoughts and pass them along to others

    And oh, yeah. Happy Birthday!!! 113, eh? And I thought *I* was old! 😀

  2. Ha ha ha. Happy 113th birthday, Debby. You look amazing! Perhaps you need to write a “secrets to living past 100” column too! I’m excited about your travel column since travel will hopefully be a part of my retirement. 🙂 Heading over to read the rest of Sally’s post. 🙂
