Traveling Solo

Who doesn’t love traveling? Ok, maybe you are a homebody and prefer staycations or you prefer to travel with a buddy, loved one or in a group, but let me tell you, traveling solo has its perks. My first solo trip was in my mid-twenties to Mazatlan, Mexico. I wanted to do some traveling but didn’t have anyone to go with so I thought, what the heck – I’ll go by myself.

So why am I here?

There’s the question of the day!  I’ve always loved writing and taking pictures but I tend to keep it to myself until one day I decided that I want to share some of tidbits, experiences and wisdom(?) I’ve gathered along the way.  As you will see, I LOVE taking pictures. Whether I’m traveling abroad or in-country, out on a day jaunt, or just hanging out with my kitties, there’s always something to photograph.

So I invite you to hang out with me, there might just be something interesting coming your way.
