Looking Into the Travel Crystal Ball

So what is next for the liberated traveler?  It feels a little less exciting to be off the road, but this blog has some big plans in the works.  Until my next grand adventure, I plan on sharing everything I’ve learned on my summer trip.  I will also sprinkle my posts with side trips and…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Fresh

Summer is a great time for this week’s photo challenge theme.  I instantly think of farmer’s markets, or maybe that little snail being delicious escargot.  What do you think of?

Thoughts on Solo Travel

Solo travel is often portrayed through idealistic eyes.  I know that was my original perspective.  After being on my own for nearly a month, my view has become a little more realistic.  Every person will have a different perspective because we are all in different situations.  I am a young female who is not terribly…

Grand Canyon

In the movie, Guilt Trip, there is a scene with Barbara Streisand and Seth Rogen at the Grand Canyon.  Barbara had always wanted to see it, so they took a side trip.  Once they finally reached the destination, they waited there for a few seconds wondering what to do next.  They thought the Grand Canyon…

Well, I wasn’t able to make it to Bastille Day in Paris this year (again), but I am still in the spirit.  Since I can’t share fabulous photos live in Paris, I will share some of my favorite photos of France to commemorate the holiday.  Vive la France!

Weekly Photo Challenge: The Golden Hour

I love the theme for this week’s photo challenge.  The golden hour is the hour after sunrise and the hour before sunset.  I’ve mentioned on here before that my favorite time to photograph is during the morning golden hour.  I hope you enjoy these photography finds.

Marche Aux Puces

No, I did not just call you a bad name.  Marche aux puces translates to flea market in English.  There are several across Paris, but one of the largest in Europe can be found at Porte de Clignancourt in St. Ouen.  St. Ouen is on the outskirts of Paris, and a little rougher around the…
