Paul took this photo on the nighttime Fat Tire Bike Tour of Paris. It is the one thing we highly recommend everybody do if it’s your first time visiting this beautiful city. It is essential that you take both the day tour and the night tour. You’ll jump on a beach cruiser and pedal down city streets that lead you to these breathtakingly gorgeous and remarkable views. On the day tour, you… Read More
You see this man standing here in awe of Grand Central Station? We don’t know him, but we’ve been him. A tiny human standing still, out of sync with the city’s beat. Mesmerized by the beauty of buildings like this one, the few left standing, he keeps his feet grounded to a floor that holds a trillion stories. Treasure this, America. We beg.
Another cafe; this one in Provence. How many stories can we tell with just one photo? I’d say the guy in the shorts, legs crossed and hands placed perfectly upon his leg, is pretty pleased with his ponytailed friend. She’s said something that’s made him proud. He’s impressed. What about the woman just behind the lady in the fancy dress and the cute shoes? She’s at the cafe next door, but she’s… Read More
I long for this. Sitting by the water in short sleeves, reading a book by the water with a huge Ferris wheel looming over me. It’s Seattle in August. It could be a guidebook to Japan or a bartender’s manual of cocktails. Perhaps it’s his own novel. Whatever it is, this man is going places.
This is my Paris. Several years ago, Paul and I rented an apartment in the 1st Arrondissement of the beautiful city of Paris. We stayed for the entire month of July. If you travel back in time on our blog, you can find many posts about our experience and learn about how it significantly changed our lives for the better. This weekend angry protesters lit the Champs Elysees ablaze in… Read More
Last August, Paul and I took a trip to California. It was one of those trips that I so badly wanted and needed, but I was so torn about taking. My mom was ill, and I wasn’t completely sold on jetting off to the other side of the country for a week. Paul convinced me that everything would be okay and that if I needed to, I could hop on a plane… Read More
The story behind this image is quite simple; I hijacked a photo shoot. Michelle and I took a journey to California last summer. While in San Francisco, we signed up for a food tour of Chinatown. We met our guide at the gates of this famous region and proceeded to eat in various restaurants throughout the neighborhood. There are many beautifully crafted murals throughout the area. I was lining up a picture… Read More
Asbury Park has gone through quite a renaissance over the past ten years. There are not many places left that give you the feel of the old days in Asbury. The Wonder Bar is one of the few places left untouched by the restoration projects. This image struck me as the tale of the little guy being engulfed by modernization. A beacon of the past in the face of the giant new… Read More
