The Journey Begins

Traveling – it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller – Ibn Battuta

As you’ve probably guessed, I’m a writer who loves to travel . . . or maybe a traveler who loves to write – either way, the pictures shown here are from some of my favorite places.

If you love to travel or just love to read about traveling, you’ve found the right place. Enjoy!

  1. Oh the pictures you hand picked for this post were excellent

    And an extra thanks for the quote

    “Traveling – it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller – ”
    I think it can apply to many things – but what I really liked was how it said at first leaves us speechless.
    I think all rich experienced do this and was just sharing with someone about why they sometimes cannot comment right away or they just need time to process
    So this quite reminds us that speechless is a phase and can lead to true story telling and expression from being sculpted later

    • It’s St. Chapelle’s in Paris. They host classical music concerts, and sitting in there surrounded by glorious music as the sun sets on those stained glass windows is an other- worldly experience.

  3. Of all the wonderful places I HAVEN’T been yet, I have been to Clon Macnoise–on my honeymoon, actually! Very interesting and beautiful, as all of Ireland. I’m so looking forward to discovering more of your site!

  5. There’s really no magic quite like traveling, especially for the intrepid who embrace the unbeaten paths and hidden locales in favor of more popular attractions. I spend more time than I’d like to admit daydreaming of my next adventure.

    • Hi Lindsay, what a great comment, I couldn’t put it better. There really is nothing like traveling. It changes you and your perspective, you see things differently when you get home again. Thanks.

  7. Yes, it’s such a beautiful place. The only drawback of Norway is how expensive it is. Our first day out we were craving American food so went to the Hard Rock Cafe. We ordered lunch before figuring out the exchange rate . . . BIG mistake. Luckily we’d booked a hotel that had meals included and ate there for the rest of our stay. Have fun!
