I’ve been traveling a lot and I’m here to report that more than a few spots around the globe are sweltering!

Are you quite comfortable swishing a fan or do you find it too much of an affectation?

I brought a couple of mine to Greece.

Just, you know, because.

I’m a 19th century gal after all.

We were in the company of a lovely Spanish couple.

After watching both of them using their fans…well, let’s just say, I’ve never felt more ungainly.

It’s all in the wrist apparently…

Are you cool with it, or do you feel like an elderly Asian woman?!

I’m torn, but no doubt about it, they were a requirement here.
