Check Me Out on Etsy

It is so exciting to see my business come together.  My business name is currently being published in the newspaper to become official.  My amazing fiancé made a logo for me that I feel truly captures who I am.  Next up, we have Etsy!  I’ve had a shop on Etsy for a while now that…

Building a Business

The Liberated Traveler has returned!  Although it has been a few years, I identify as the Liberated Traveler more than ever.  I’ve recently started the process of starting my own business under this name.  Sometimes we can’t travel as much as we’d like, so traveling needs to come to us.  The goal of my business…

Travel Theme: Sky

Many people have taken to the skies this holiday week, and even if they haven’t, they might be dreaming about it. Here are a few of my favorite photos to guide your eyes a little higher tonight.

Venice of the North: Bruges

Bruges (Brugge) is a quiet town in Northern Belgium. It is easily accessed from Brussels, which makes it possible to visit if you are staying in Paris. Bruges is physically possible in a day trip, but it is well worth an overnight stay or longer. Join me as we explore this gem in Belgium.

Travel Inspiration

It doesn’t take much for me to be inspired to travel.  I daydream constantly of strolling the beach in the Cinque Terre or finding the perfect spot at a cafe and spending half my day there.  I’ve decided to create photo art to inspire those that might need a little more persuasion to travel.  I’m…

For this challenge, the blogger simply shares photos that he/she thinks represent…

East Coast US in 2006

After National Treasure came out, we knew we had to go back to the East coast.  Yes, I was that kind of dork.  On this trip we didn’t go as far north so we could go further south.  This road trip included: -Gettysburg (again, this is my favorite civil war battlefield) -Antietam -Philadelphia (one of…

East Coast US in 2005

My dad recently recovered files from old computers, and I discovered some of my photos from past trips.  This was in my early days of photography.  Digital cameras were very limited with megapixels back then, so the quality of the photos may not match what I’ve shared recently, but I still thought it would be…
