A friend of mine posted a link to these amazing outdoor hotel suites on Conde Nast Traveller earlier today and I just want to go to all of them.
Just a little late with travel “tuesday” this week guys. Earlier this week (or possibly last week) I learned about a blog called The Dropout Diaries from Sally (Unbrave Girl). I love it. And it was this blog that got me thinking about the several weeks I spent in Vietnam as I travelled around the
This is my friend Jenn at Bodega Mevi. Both are awesome. This image (and all the images in this post) were taken on my Nikon FM. When people say “Mendoza” to me, I immediately think “Bikes & Wine”. I love biking and winery-ing. Love it. It’s my favourite way to see wineries. The first time
Last Tuesday, I left you in late June 2005 when the (future) hubs and I were leaving Laos to spend just a couple of days in Thailand. The plan? Overnight train from Nong Khai (just across the border from Vientianne), getting off in Ayutthaya at the godforsaken hour of about 5:30 in the morning. Then
Last week I told you all about our trip to China in 2005. And when I left you we were just about to cross the border into Laos, where we were about to become millionaires. To give you a flavour of just how I was feeling at the time, here is an excerpt from an
Way back in 2004 and 2005 I was really adventurous. 2004 was the year I spent 6 months travelling by myself, and June 2005 was probably the high watermark of adventurous Al. I decided to take the (future) hubs way (way) off the beaten track into middle of nowhere China to go see a town
When I looked at the calendar in preparation of this week’s travel tuesday, I couldn’t believe that it is already July 31st! Where does the time go? So, to celebrate this last day in the 7th month of the year that I went to my 7th continent, I present to you: “Travel Tuesday :: Continents
Travel “Tuesday” this week is on a “Tuesday” because my little computer was sick and in the hospital on Monday and Tuesday morning. Trackpad problems. But no worries, she’s back and working better than ever! As I mentioned on Monday, this past weekend we photographed a beautiful wedding on the Sunshine Coast. And the second
I’m switching things up a little today (and perhaps for the next several weeks). Instead of focusing on places I’ve been, how about places I want to go. Or images that inspire me to travel. Like these. 1. Lady on Train. Pinterest. Original Source. 2. See The World. Pinterest. Original Source. 3. The Maldives. Pinterest.
Though I’ve previously posted a photo of Dubrovnik in travel tuesday series, I have to admit, it isn’t my favourite place in the world. Too busy, too many cruise ship tourists, and just a bit too intense for me. But then we took a ferry over to Dubrovnik’s little brother, Korcula. And I fell in
Happy Wednesday everybody! Since I missed Travel Tuesday yesterday (in favour of a Richmond restaurant review), I’m going to come at you a day late. The following images of Tigre were taken on my Nikon FM film camera. Tomorrow I’ll talk more about Richmond, about my disappointment, my teensy tiny bit of relief, and our
Today’s Travel Tuesday? (Ooh! Alliteration!) You guessed it: Richmond, BC! I’ve not spent that much time in Richmond (yet), but with a little help from you… all of that is about to change! Starting today, April 24th through next Tuesday, May 1 (at 4 p.m. PST) I need your help! And I need it once
All our bags are packed, we’re ready to go. It’s funny, while I’m not really ready to leave BA, I’m very ready to get down to business in my favourite city in the world. BA has been so, so wonderful. But I love Vancouver. We moved away from Vancouver 1442 days ago, and I can’t
Today, my friend Jenn and I are getting onto an overnight luxury bus (cama suite class) and heading to Mendoza do to a bike and wine tour. Three years ago, I did a bike and wine tour in Mendoza with the hubs, and it was super fun. So I’m looking forward to doing it again.
El Ateneo Grand Splendid, located at Santa Fe 1860 in Buenos Aires, is the most amazing bookstore I’ve ever been to. Originally a theatre, Teatro Grand Splendid, it was converted into a bookstore and cafe. One word sums it up perfectly: breathtaking. On the old stage of the theatre, you find a cafe. A perfect
