¡Yo no hablo español!

By on February 18, 2018

Mexico! The very word conjures up exuberant, joyful people, mariachi bands, hot tamales and colours, lots of colours everywhere. I have not been disappointed. On my rollercoaster trip of a lifetime I find myself living in Ensenada, Baja California, a fairly large coastal city with a population of a little more than half a million. […]

Fun with Macro!

By on January 20, 2018

So….I got my new macro lens yesterday and I just had to try it out. So much fun! I obviously have a lot to learn and I will need to find a spot with more bugs. The only ones in the Desert Garden at Balboa Park were a few wasps and flies. It was a […]

Goodbye 2017, Hello Brand New Year!

By on December 31, 2017

December 2017 finds me in Barstow, California, a small city north of San Bernadino. Why? I’m not sure. It piqued my interest when I noticed its proximity to a ghost town, so I thought I’d stop here for a few days and check out the ghost town, which happens to be an abandoned silver mining […]

Best Friends Animal Sanctuary

By on December 15, 2017

I learned about this wonderful place when I watched National Geographic’s “Dogtown“. My heart was forever imprinted with the images of Michael Vick’s fighting dogs arriving at Dogtown, particularly the bait dogs. It was heartbreaking. I thought to myself that if I ever got the chance, I would visit the sanctuary and volunteer. I got […]

Paris……. incroyable!

By on October 13, 2017

It was all I could have hoped for, from the cobblestoned streets to the magnificent Eiffel Tower, from the sidewalk cafes to the hidden Palais Royal. Outdoor markets, boulangeries, des pâtisseries, macarons, fine wines, cheeses, strong coffee …..everything quintessentially Parisienne. With temptation at every turn, I ask you this…how do the French keep in shape? […]

Beyond Paris

By on October 2, 2017

Been planning my upcoming trip to the U.K. tonight. Just booked an Airbnb in Central London for $50 CAD a night. Can’t beat that! I will be staying there for a few days, recovering from the crazy schedule we will be on in Paris during my photography workshop. Then I made reservations at  the Best Western […]

Washington, here I come!

By on September 11, 2017

Getting ready for my trip to Washington, where I will spend five days with published writers and newbies such as myself, learning and sharing! Pretty excited as I move on to actually writing saleable articles. So much to learn, but it is all coming together. I may not have it all together yet, but oh, […]

Boondocking!

By on August 8, 2017

You learn something new everyday! I just discovered “Boondocking”! I have been searching for places to park my mini-motorhome overnight without paying, as I embark on my adventure to Beautiful British Columbia. Not as easy as I originally thought. I have already been kicked out of a Walmart parking lot! (But I thought you could […]
