Roman Summer

Another trip down memory lane from my visit to Rome.  I was walking passed the Pantheon one morning  and came across this busker.  Even though it was quite warm, did not prevent her performance.  As I stood listening it confirmed again for me the people we meet during our travels make travel even more enriching.

Pirates of Mykonos

The narrow twists and turns of Mykonos’ streets were designed in a way to confuse the pirates who roamed the high seas of the Mediterranean centuries ago. Continue reading

Photo of the Month: Illuminations

I will always love this photo I took of the Pantheon in central Rome. During the day the piazza is hot and crowded. But when the sun goes down the city vibe makes Rome even more magical.  Continue reading

Travel: Addiction or Lifestyle?

I came across an article recently on Facebook about travel being a real addiction. A doctor was quoted in the piece confirming just that. But I have to disagree with that diagnosis. Because for me, travel is a lifestyle choice. Continue reading

Camels are an intriguing animal and  not temperamental as I discovered during my camel ride at Uluru last year. They are actually gentle and friendly. My camel, name Wally, was a great example of a placid camel.  He was happy to follow along on our mini sunset camel train. Continue reading

Why Packing Light Makes Good Travel Sense?

On the aircraft you already have to cope with distractions beyond your control such as the snoring passenger in the next seat, the crying child or the long epic journey (if you’re travelling from Australia).  Your suitcase should not add to the list of worries. Continue reading

The Audrey Hepburn Tour of Rome

Many movies have been inspired and filmed in Rome including one of my favourites – Roman Holiday.  When I was in Rome this past August, I made a point to visit a few locations used in the movie.  Although it was not my first visit to Rome, it felt like it.  I experienced this ancient city again from a different perspective – without a tour group and stopped off longer at these unique places.  While I don’t recommend walking the streets at night after a couple of sleeping pills like Audrey Hepburn did in the movie, the city is worth a look day and night.

Panoramic Canada By Rail

The best way I discovered to see as much of Canada’s beautiful panorama as possible was by train.  It is such a large country, and like Australia, impossible to see everything in such a short time.  Everything is spread out and it takes a couple of days to travel across the country.  But it is really worth the journey!
