Paris – #POTD, Part Deux

That moment you look into your carry-on bag and realise it's stuffed to the brim with bags (and bags) mini Toblerone. 😋 Its time to board the plane, and I've got a long travel day ahead of me. I hope you've enjoyed my daily photos. More in depth posts to follow, once I'm back in... Continue Reading →

Paris – #POTD

Bonjour ! After I finish my last breakfast in Paris, I need to finish packing before heading to the airport. Le sigh. <!--more--> Its been a fun week and, although I'm looking forward to going home, I know I'm going to miss Paris immensely. So until next time, Au revoir and bonne journée! Marla

Paris – #POTD

This morning I found myself in the area of Saint-Sulpice, which happens to be my favourite church in Paris. Of course I had to duck in for a visit. Usually when I enter a church, I take a seat in the back row of the pews to silently take everything in for a few minutes.... Continue Reading →

Oregon – #POTD

I'm writing this post in the van as we make our way north towards the Canadian border. This past week in Oregon has been a lot of fun and we're both sad to see it come to an end. This mural, located in our favourite little town called Yachats, perfectly sums up our week. We've... Continue Reading →

Oregon – #POTD

Today has been a pretty busy day, by relaxing holiday standards. After breakfast we headed south a couple of hours, before heading back up towards Yachats (I'll share posts about our activities soon). Several stops were made, including this one at Face Rock State Scenic Viewpoint. I can't get enough of this coastline. Bonne journée!... Continue Reading →
