This is food for my soul, a love affair. The different between should and want.
Central Perean, Baturiti, Tabanan Regency, Bali, Indonesia
Standing a midst the Unesco Rice Fields in Indonesia is to be lost in a sea of emerald green that sparkles as far as the eye can see. Mystical nouns fall short to describe such a wonder. To say that this place is unlike anything that you would...
Wonokitri, Ledok Sari, Tosari, Pasuruan, Jawa Timur, Indonesia
The trip took a plane, a bicycle, a train, a minivan, a jeep and a horse! Ok, so it didn't take a rocket but might as well. And waiting for the sunrise hopeful that the clouds would lift and reveal this majestic scenery is probably as close as...
Calle de Tetuan, San Juan, 00901, Puerto Rico
If ever in Old San Juan in the island of Puerto Rico, visit the Parque de las Palomas (Pigeon Park). The view to the San Juan bay will transport you to Spanish times. Forts and huge stone walls will reveal themselves after a hike up the cobble...
Topton, NC 28781, USA
I'm still amazed when I discover that it doesn't take a plane ride to experience an adventure. The place I've called home for the last decade sits in the shadows of the Smokey Mountains. A unique merging of lakes and mountains blending three...
Brandenberg Alps, 6234, Austria
My husband and I visited Italy in May, flying into and out of Milan. It was our first trip to Italy, and I knew as we flew over the stunning Italian Alps that it was going to be a trip to remember. We both love to be outdoors and have hiked in...
Champ de Mars, 5 Avenue Anatole France, 75007 Paris, France
Nothing is a more powerful symbol of the City of Light than the Eiffel Tower. Designed by Gustave Eiffel for the 1889 Paris Exposition, it's one of the world's most-visited monuments, with nearly 7 million people ascending the 1,062-foot...
Nassau, The Bahamas
Are you sure this thing doesn't have a stinger? Yes, my main concern as I put on my fins to swim with stingrays in the crystal clear water of Nassau. Though close to the shores of Florida, it felt like a million miles away submerged under quiet...
St. Petersburg, FL, USA
This time we were off to the shores of St. Petersburg looking for sun and beach volleyball. We found both and more... a kite festival, an art exposition and the Dali Museum. Who knew that one could stumble upon such treasures in just one weekend a...
1359 W 107th St, Los Angeles, CA 90044, USA
I had been studying for weeks and finally taken my board exam. Tired, nervous and out of sorts my friend and I decided to find shelter in the island of Catalina. Who knew that just off the coast of California one could find such a treasure....
Airport Ave, Saihan Qu, Huhehaote Shi, Neimenggu Zizhiqu, China, 010070
I still don't know how I ended up in Inner Mongolia. I applied for a teaching abroad summer position at the request of my graduate program - you know just to say that someone did - and the next thing I know I'm on a plane to Asia. Needless to say...
Venice, Metropolitan City of Venice, Italy
Once my grandmother said: there's no place like Venice. She had taken a world cruise after her retirement and spoke - still 20 years later - of the most enchanting place in the world. After all my travels I'm not sure Venice is the most enchanting...
La Fortuna - El Castillo, Provincia de Alajuela, Costa Rica
There are no words for the sounds and life of a tropical evening beneath an active volcano. What began as a simple 10 day trip to what's become a popular destination, has turned into a love affair that we find ourselves going back to...and missing...
Mario Villanueva Madrid, Bacalar, Q.R., Mexico
The month long trip to the Yucatan Peninsula was just an excuse to get away, but little did we know that we would find in this place a sense of harmony that was as new as the ruins were old. Signing a visitors book to walk into the jungle to see...
