Five Shots: Spanish Patterns & Details

My phone keeps reminding me of what I was doing a year, two, three years ago on this day. No international trip this year. But I can always reminisce! What I loved about the 2017 trip to Spain were the textures, shapes, and patterns. Here are a few. Which shot do you like best?

Check out the “Travel with Me” tab

There is a side to me that I don’t advertise much but it takes up a lot of my time throughout the year. Come June or July, I show the fruits of my labor with photo posts, but that’s it. More and more often, people have asked me for information about how I travel and what the trips are like for those who do the journey with me. That’s why I created the new tab. What am I talking about?

For the past seventeen years, I have been a tour director. Grandmas and granddaughters. Couples. Families. Brothers. Sisters. High school students. College students. Educational traveling is a lot of fun.

I’m not selling or asking you for anything. This is just an invitation to you to see my new tab on the header of my blog. Click “Travel with Me” and learn more about me and this fab role of mine.

On Monday, June 18th, a dozen of us are heading to Rome, Pompeii, Sorrento, and Capri.

My bags are packed and I’m ready to go. Ciao!
