As promised, Travel Tuesday is something just a bit different this week (and likely for the next 10 weeks or so). Rather than just an image, it is a little glimpse of some of the trips we’ve taken throughout 2011. One such trip was over the May long weekend (about May 24) to Montreal. I’ve
This picture was taken on August 23, 2008 on our self-drive safari through Kruger National Park, South Africa. I’ve been thinking about sharing this photo since they went to South Africa on the Bachelor way back in February. But then I forgot. You know what they say, time flies when you are having fun. If you
This photo was taken on March 10, 2009 at the end of a grueling four-day hike along the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, Peru. Despite the rainy season, we were very lucky to have an almost rain-free four-day hike as well as a rain-free day at Machu Picchu. This was one of the few super
This photo was taken on June 13, 2008 at Pamukkale in Turkey. This was actually the second time I’ve been to Pamukkale. The first time was with my mom, my dad and brother way back, 14 years ago back, in July of 1997. [EDIT: If you came across this post on Tuesday and were wondering
This photo was taken on November 15, 2008 in Japan. As I’ve mentioned before, we loved Japan. We loved it a lot. Among all the other things Japan has going for it, it is a country that takes its vending machines seriously. What’s not to love about that?
This picture was taken on February 8, 2009 Valparaiso, Chile. Yet another one for you animal lovers out there. Or for you lovers of turquoise. If you love both, well, you are in luck… this is your kinda picture!
This photo was taken on September 11, 2008 at Dune 45 in Namibia. It is, in fact, Dune 45. Sand dunes are my favorite natural formation. Asking people “what’s your favorite natural formation?” was a big part of our (ok, “my”) life while we were traveling. It’s a somewhat surprising question, but once people take
This photo was taken on December 2, 2008 at Bondi Beach in Australia. I thought long and hard about posting a nice, but probably more boring, picture of the opera house or something, but I couldn’t resist this one. All the credit for the neat composition goes to the hubs for this image.
This photo was taken on July 3, 2008 in Albania. While it maybe isn’t the most technically perfect image, I love it anyway. The Albania country side is dotted with these concrete bunkers (700,000 of them); remnants from the communist regime. Now, they don’t serve much more purpose than looking exceptionally cute (probably not the
This photo was taken on March 28, 2009 in Southwest Bolivia. It features a whole bunch of good things like mountains, a soda lake, amazing grass, and llamas. (See, I told you was going to feature more animals!) I love the composition and the colour in this image, yet another goody (see the first one,
This photo was taken on June 23, 2008 in Santorini, Greece. I love this image, the tone makes me swoon, its dreamy. Whenever I look at it I think about being some other than here. I love it so much that this picture has been shortlisted on end up on our walls – humongous styles
This photo (of an extremely rare mountain gorilla!!!) was taken on October 25, 2008 in Bwindi Imprenetrable National Park in Uganda. And yes, we were that close. (For the photo geeks out there, this was zoomed into 90mm on a 1.6x crop factor sensor, so it is the equivalent of about 150mm of zoom.) I
This photo was taken on September 15, 2008, once again at the Himba orphanage in Namibia. If you’ve been following along for awhile, you may remember this picture of the world’s most adorable baby that I posted about three months ago. Since then, I’ve been planning on sharing my “Angelina Jolie” moment with you. When
This photo was taken on February 7, 2009 in Valparaiso, Chile. You can tell from the hubs’ expression that he was less than impressed with my sweet photography skillz. Little did he know, all that time trying to get the perfect angle would result in a super sweet picture. And in fact, this became one
This picture was taken on July 21, 2008 in London. If your name is Sam (or Graham), you may be wondering how the heck this picture was taken on July 21, 2008 in London, when on July 19, 2008* I was in Vancouver at your wedding and on July 21, 2008 I was flying to
