Costa Rica helped us identify happiness in a way that we usually take for granted. That is our greatest take away and the biggest gift from our recent visit.
I share more on that in Happiness, Tico Style: Adventures in Costa Rica.
Below are some of the images that we captured along the way.
There are few places that have really stayed with me long years after my first visit. Italy is one of those places for me. Since my teenage years, when I first set foot in this beautiful country, I have been in love with its Northern countryside, the people, the food, the culture.
You can read more about my recent visit there in Food as Culture at Academia Barilla in Parma, Italy.
In the meantime, I wanted to share some photos I took along the way to help to inspire you and hopefully motivate a visit.
I am still on cloud nine from my adventures in Scotland.
You can read more about that in Exploring Brave Scotland, Making New Friends.
I shared a lot of photos there, but believe it or not, those weren’t all of them. Here are some photos courtesy of Visit Scotland from our last night there.
They are of the Scottish Ceilidh, where I danced and danced and danced. Ah, pure joy. It was a wonderful way to end the trip and say farewell to our new found friends and gracious hosts.
Ok. I admit it. I loved Montreal.
Montrealers are known for their pride of their hometown. I think they deserve to be. Montreal is a great city and their ability to hold on to two cultures and languages for generations is something I greatly admire and even envy. Coming from NYC, I respect and understand cultural, hometown pride and Montrealers have much to be proud about, including all the awesome they have to offer those who visit. They are friendly and happy to share their city with you – to show it off, if you will – and I was more than happy to take it all in.
Montreal rocks and I can’t wait to go back and think you should visit as well.
In the meantime, here are some photos from my trip.
Sitting here on a plane back from a short visit to San Francisco, CA.
The only and only time I’ve driven through San Francisco was on my way to and from Napa Valley a few months ago. It was then when I first drove and saw the Golden Gate Bridge and screamed with the excitement of a child.
In “Sun and Fun in Melbourne, FL“ I share how I came upon this beautiful Florida spot and why I returned.
Here I share some of the photos from our visit.
We hope you enjoy them and they inspire you to travel there or anywhere that brings your family closer together.
I have so much to share with you about my trip to Maui.

A night walking through the streets of New York City. On this particular evening my feet covered the Lower East Side, East Village and some of the West Village.
Despite those things that didn’t really feel like they belonged among the coolness and uniqueness of the neighborhood, like the Super Cuts and Chipotle on St. Mark’s Place or the Starbucks on 1st Avenue, it was refreshing to walk the streets late at night, among the hipsters and cool kids and just photograph the sights.
It wasn’t the season, I was told, to really enjoy all the beauty Napa Valley has to offer. I should come back in September, it was said.
Nevertheless, my time there was a wonderful one. Granted there was a lot of eating and drinking and merriment with friends, but when in Napa…

Even though we are still feeling the chill in the air, I can’t help but think of the beauty of the warmer months to come. Though I do have hopes to hit the beach, my heart still flutters at the thought of a scene of a different kind: the Colorado Rockies, specifically as seen during my visit last year to Beaver Creek, where somewhere between long hikes through aspen forests and the smell of fresh lilies in the mountain air, I fell in love with the place.
I hope my photography captured at least a hint of the breathtaking beauty there and give you inspiration to travel in the coming seasons.
