When had pretty much arrived at the conclusion that Portugal just wasn’t for us. Then we got to Sintra. We’d heard some pretty positive things about Sintra, so had decided to make it an overnight adventure rather than just a day trip. But on the 40-minute train ride from Lisbon we were worried—we thought we
It’s late (well, late for me) Tuesday night and I’m dreaming of going to India. Found on Pinterest
Last Tuesday, I left you in late June 2005 when the (future) hubs and I were leaving Laos to spend just a couple of days in Thailand. The plan? Overnight train from Nong Khai (just across the border from Vientianne), getting off in Ayutthaya at the godforsaken hour of about 5:30 in the morning. Then
When I recently posted the image of Victoria Falls (more accurately of Devil’s Pool at Victoria Falls) I realized it’s been awhile since I shared any Africa images. And this one is a good one. I have really mixed feelings about Zanzibar. I think by the time we got there we were really, really tired.
Though I’ve previously posted a photo of Dubrovnik in travel tuesday series, I have to admit, it isn’t my favourite place in the world. Too busy, too many cruise ship tourists, and just a bit too intense for me. But then we took a ferry over to Dubrovnik’s little brother, Korcula. And I fell in
This is the last of three instagram travel tuesday posts. Today, some quintessential SF shots taken in the beautiful weather last week. I love that city, though I have to say: I’m happy to finally be home with my hubby!
Here is a glimpse into my fabulous last week. Vegas. Road Trip. La Quinta, and today I’m in SF, about to attend a workshop with one of my all time favourite photographers, and I can’t wait!
Happy Wednesday everybody! Since I missed Travel Tuesday yesterday (in favour of a Richmond restaurant review), I’m going to come at you a day late. The following images of Tigre were taken on my Nikon FM film camera. Tomorrow I’ll talk more about Richmond, about my disappointment, my teensy tiny bit of relief, and our
Good morning friends—both old and new—I’m so excited I could just about burst! If you are new here (and I have a sneaking suspicion that lots of you are today), welcome! If you are a regular, you might be wondering just what is going on… well, I have great news: I made the top 12
We awoke on the morning of Day 6 to our first inclement weather. Who goes to Antarctica for 5 days before having inclement weather? Us, that’s who! The winds were gusting at up to 30-35 knots, which makes it very unsafe for the zodiacs to land. Unfortunately, this meant that our scheduled morning landing was
Happy Valentine’s Day! Well, with that out of the way, let me get on with it! This Travel Tuesday is going to be more along the lines of my recent Antarctica posts (see Days 1-3 and Day 4) than a regular Travel Tuesday post. But, since it is Tuesday and I’m talking about travel, this
I’m in Antarctica until February 7th! This post was pre-programmed! You want to know what I love. Really good portrait & wedding photographers. And I’m pretty sure your not surprised about that, given my current employ as a wedding photographer. And in the female spirit of Tuesday’s and Wednesday’s posts. Women. Again. I’m starting to
Remember Best Of? If you aren’t my mom (aka, you have’t been following since the very beginning of this blog just over one year ago – whoa), Best Of was a Sunday round up of my favourite travel, food, photography, and design posts on the web. It sort of fizzled in April, and while I’ve
Today is my one year blogiversary. Today I’m getting on a boat to go to Antarctica. Who would have thought that exactly one year after writing this post about my wanderlust, I’d be going to the seventh continent? Don’t worry though. You won’t be lonely! I’ve got a handful of pre-programmed posts scheduled for while
[Begin rant] As you all know, I’m pretty dorky, I’m way into money, and I’m totally detail oriented. This means that I am the go-to expert for all my friends and family on credit card rewards programs in Canada. The CapitalOne World Aspire Mastercard has the best reward rate in Canada for most economy seats
