Welcome to ChrisOler.com.

There is so much in the world to explore: great food, fun games, and beautiful places. Most important, there are many, many good people. This site shares our travel experiences and what we learn while putting our Molly and the Magic Suitcase books together.

One great benefit of exploring the world in our books is the opportunity to make new friends from around the world. Many of them live near us, though they come from London, Paris, Rome, Lima, Copenhagen, Sydney, Bangkok, and, of course, the United States. I am grateful to all. It’s so much fun to learn from them.

My thanks to YOU too. Young readers tell us about the places they’re interested in and share so well. One of the contributors to our Peru book was just twelve years old.

We celebrate and honor life in contrasting ways, but through similar expressions including sport, dance, music, architecture, and literature. It is the sameness which binds us. Thanks for visiting and happy travels!
