I was inspired for this article by a fellow travel blogger, who recently posted some great street art from Miami. Back in college I had a roommate who was a graffiti artist, so I fell in love with this style early on. I’ve identified what I consider to be the finest examples of European street […]

In honor of Holocaust remembrance month, I submit this gripping photo of a monument in Gdansk, Poland. This statue of a ‘weeping Christ’ can be found in St. Mary’s Church, and commemorates 2,779 priests who were executed by the Nazis during World War II. Visiting Gdansk, Krakow and Warsaw can certainly hit you with some […]

The site began as Catholic, then was demolished and converted into a mosque when Muslims conquered Spain in the 8th century. In the 13th century the Christians reclaimed Cordoba, […]

5 Things I Miss About Travel…and 5 I Don’t!

 destinations,eurotrip,travel advice   May 19, 2016    By

The top travel blogger out there is unarguably Matthew Kepnes of ‘Nomadic Matt’ fame, and I recently read an article on his site that he’s taking a break from travel. Some people choose to take a break, and some have it forced upon them…mine was the latter. My ‘freedom to travel’ moratorium is going on […]

Shutter Love Sunday – Venice, Italy

 Venice, Italy   May 15, 2016    By

Even the dogs dress up for Carnival in Venice! This European celebration calls for costumes, consumption of alcohol, and overall chaos leading up to the peacefulness of Lent. This is a tradition throughout Europe, but the one in Venice is heralded as top of the line…and after seeing a less than inspired Carnival in Spain […]
