A Tale of two views

I have gushed and gushed and gushed yet some more over the beauty of the Amalfi Coast in Italy.  I thought instead of simply gushing and coming across so verbose regarding my love for the Amalfi Coast.  I would simply share two photos I took not even 24 hours apart.  One at sunset and one […]

Belgium’s Street Food is AWESOME!

I consider myself a bit of a Foodie.  You know those people who don’t just eat, they analyze their foods, break down how the food was prepared and isolate the different components that make it so special.  And at some point in the future, I do my best to duplicate it.  That sounds like a lot […]

A Colorful Journey… Beautiful Santa Fe

So often my domestic travels take me to beautiful places throughout the United States, but rarely do I travel domestically for pleasure.  It seems it’s always for work and we all know what happens when you travel that way.  It’s difficult to enjoy and really experience the location you’ve traveled to.  Not this time, this […]
