“I’ve Loved the Stars Too Fondly to Be Fearful of the Night” – Galileo The Best Nights are Usually Unplanned, Random and Spontaneous Stars Can’t Shine Without Darkness There are so many great quotes to find about the “Night” FriFotos theme, the above are just a few.  Each reminds me about what I love about […]

Photos of Iceland – Awesome Iceland Landscapes to Inspire Wanderlust

Posted on 4 CommentsPosted in Europe, FriFotos on Twitter, Iceland, Photography

Living and working in the city, my daily landscape consists of skyscrapers (my office is on the 38th floor), concrete and lots of traffic on the commute.  When I travel, I feel that I can breathe and relax in the landscapes of mountains, coastlines and greenery. I can savor the wonder of nature through waterfalls, […]

Going Round and Round in Paris, London and Seattle #FriFotos

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in FriFotos on Twitter, London, London Sightseeing, Paris, Seattle

This week’s #FriFotos theme is “Circles” …..I thought round and round…..then my mind wandered to the Dead or Alive song “You Spin Me Round (like a Record)” before landing on the Ferris Wheel (don’t ask how my mind associates things).  Many cities have added Ferris Wheels to attract tourists and provide incredible city views (who […]

The New Zealand Quandary – Milford Sound vs Doubtful Sound

Posted on 2 CommentsPosted in FriFotos on Twitter, New Zealand, Photography, Travel

We all want the best and when it comes to travel there are so many confusing “best of” options.  This week’s #FriFotos theme is “Best” and I keep thinking how many times I went in search of the best and found something better.  Yesterday’s post, I went in search of the best restaurant in Melbourne […]

Water Fountain Wonders Around the World #FriFotos

Posted on 1 CommentPosted in FriFotos on Twitter, Photography

There’s something about a water fountain that just fascinates me, from the first time I saw the Swann Fountain in Philadelphia to the jumping water fountain at Epcot as a child, I love them all.  How they do what they do is pure science, what we see is pure magic, how they make us feel […]

Inspiration can  be found everywhere if you are open to the message.  Maybe you read a quote everyday (my favorite is the Holstee Manifesto that I keep at my desk) or even your horoscope and it inspired you to action.  Maybe you read a story, watched a video or looked at photos and they moved […]

Boutique Hotels Interior Design – The Great Indoors #FriFotos

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in FriFotos on Twitter, luxury hotel, Travel

From the moment I exit the taxi cab, I enter a world of comfort, design and a style that I long to be a part of – in my mind –  the cool kids club. The boutique hotel spaces are magazine worthy and I want to be in the middle of it all – jump […]

What You Find on the Hills Around the World #FriFotos

Posted on 1 CommentPosted in Botswana, Cape Town, Dublin, Easter Island, FriFotos on Twitter, New Zealand, Photography

This week’s FriFotos theme is “Hills”.  Of course, the first thing that came to mind was the song “The hills are alive with the Sound of Music…” (yes, showing my age).  While I’ve done the Sound of Music tour when I visited Salzburg, it was before the digital camera (again showing my age) and have […]

FriFotos – It’s Travel “Electric” (no dancing required)

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in FriFotos on Twitter, Travel

This week’s FriFotos theme is “Electric” so it will be quite interesting to see the creativity of the posts from around the world.  A mish mash of travel photos and stories that are “electric” to me, hope you enjoy my interpretations. The Electric Street Car – the 501 Trolley in Toronto The electricity of “chemistry” […]

Finally! A Room with a View #FriFotos

Posted on 4 CommentsPosted in FriFotos on Twitter, Hotels, Travel

This week’s theme of FriFotos is “A Room with a View” and for the most part my view is usually the back alley, a brick wall or no view at all on the inside cruise cabin.  Traveling solo, I’m usually more interested in saving money so I rarely get a “room with a view” – […]
