Travel Journey of the Week: Venice

I have a hard time deciding whether Paris or Venice is my favorite place in the world.  I think Venice is winning right now.  I’m hoping to tag on four days in Venice with my trip this summer so I can research for my book: Venice by Vaporetto.  I will be posting just as I…

Travel Journey of the Week

It turns out my idea of a weekly travel theme is not my idea alone.  I was inspired to start a blogging event after wordpress encouraged us to improve opportunities for the blogging community.  I browsed the events, and found nothing on travel, so I thought I’d start one.  Unfortunately, it was brought to my…

Midnight Dip in the Mediterranean

Last year I took a memoir writing class for fun.  During our course, we had the opportunity to participate in a 91 word memoir contest.  I didn’t win, but writing this piece allowed me to really focus on what made a particular moment so great.  Now when I read my 91 words I go back…
