Weekly Photo Challenge – Early Bird

Tags : 

I have to be honest I am more of a night owl, but when I was visiting Newquay, Devon with my mum and dad I did grab my camera and head off to the beach at around 7:00 a.m. There were only two other people who had the same idea, which was nice, as it

The above photo was taken in a market area of Florence. You will find small retail stores like this all over Tuscany, where the outside walls are used to display a sample of the products for sale. This week’s Photo Challenge was about walls that reveal something about a place or person.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Endurance

Tags : 

Dingli Chapel, which also used to be known as St. Mary Magdalene’s Chapel is situated on the Dingli Cliffs of Malta. A wonderful example of European architecture built in 1646.  Still standing and functional after nearly four centuries is endurance indeed. It is still open for Mass annually and as far as I know is

I love to travel and enjoy the different cultures and learn about the people I meet, no matter where I go. I truly enjoy learning about their lifestyle, the food they eat, and what a day in the world looks like to them. This photograph of a street merchant, taken in Spain, who you would

Weekly Photo Challenge – On The Move

Tags : 

When I thought of this week’s theme the first thing that sprang to mind was Venice.  A small city where you get around by a Water Bus, Water Taxi and Pedestrian Walkways.  For those romantic evenings being on the move by Gondola, with or without a singing gondolier, is definitely the way to go. There

Travel Theme (Distance)

Tags : 

I’m ‘late out the gate’ with this post as I started a new job, but Ailsa’s travel theme this week is distance and I felt that this photo fit the bill. The small beaches you see in the distance can only be reached by swimming out to them from the main shoreline or by propelling yourself

Sunset on Newquay Bay

I have just got back from a wonderful two-week vacation in England where I was visiting my parents. It was six years ago when I saw them last, when they visited Canada, so I thought it was about time. We spent a few days touring Cornwall and Devon as I was craving the smell of sea air and even though the

Travel Theme (Costume)

Tags : 

I wasn’t sure I had any photo’s for this weeks theme, but then I remembered these wonderful dancers in Cuba. These photos were taken at the El Salvador hotel in Cayo Coco, which I believe is now called the Krystal Laguna. The poolside dancing, was colourful, fun and entertaining, and I always loved chatting with

Travel Theme (Pathways)

Tags : 

The above theme reminded me of a great holiday that I enjoyed with my children in Cuba. I am not going to say that they are the most inspiring photos, but they hold the greatest of memories. These pathways are the ones we travelled over and over for the time we were there,  they led

I cannot begin to tell you how it good it feels to have finally taken a leap of faith and quit the corporate world. I do not have another job to go to, I just knew it was time to get out from under my security blanket if I was ever going to change my
