There’s nothing I love more than traveling and I have yet to experience visiting places by packing up a motorhome or RV, and hitting the open road. It’s definitely a unique way to travel! You get to explore the world from the road, and roll up into a new town every morning. Continue reading “Wandering America’s West Coast”

Circles Around The World

The circle is such a symbolic shape. It represents all kinds of deep meanings of cycles of life, and infinity. The circle shape is also one of the most useful ones. You would rarely eat or drink or store things in or from triangles shapes for example. There are many circles around the world in different forms, colors, sizes and functions. Check out my collection: Continue reading “Circles Around The World”

Christmas In The Garden At The Oregon Garden

Last weekend we spontaneously (as per usual) decided to drive an hour and a half to the Oregon Garden in Silverton to experience some Christmas spirit and we sure found it. “Christmas in the Garden” is basically what it sounds like… It is Christmas lights, Christmas music, German Christmas Market style Shops, Food and Drink, fire pits, Santa and (real!) reindeers, and ice skating. All it was missing was a little snow! Continue reading “Christmas In The Garden At The Oregon Garden”

Grey Around The World

Nobody really pays attention to grey, it’s such a dull color yet it vastly surrounds us in the form of buildings, bridges, pavement, airplanes and ships. It is an industrial color for sure, and one that could describe our present era. We tear down beautiful colorful nature to replace it with this color.

But sometimes, grey is good, like in the elephant in the photo above. Who doesn’t like elephants? And I’m actually quite fond of wearing grey clothes.

Below is a series of photos around the world with grey as the main subject: Continue reading “Grey Around The World”

When Land Meets Water Around The World

Land and water, basically what our planet is made of. When both of these meet, something magical happens. The scenery somehow becomes beautiful and useful for mankind too, whether for leisure or work. They are two completely different things, yet they complement each other so well.  They create a connection that humanity seems to love. It also comes in different forms such as lakes meeting parks, and cities meeting oceans.

I hope you enjoy these photos of land meeting water from across my travels. Continue reading “When Land Meets Water Around The World”

Below you will find a photo series of sweet, fruity and decadent foods from across my travels, enjoy!: Continue reading “Sweet Food Around The World”

Savory Food Around The World

veritable quandary portland brunch

I love food. There I said it. My weekly small pleasures often involve food, and I think about food like all the time. I am for sure guilty of getting hangry and often getting mad at the internet for making me hungry and crave things I can’t get. I just realized I may be causing this for other people with this post. I apologize.

Food gives me pleasure and sometimes even suffering from craving it. I wish I was desireless, because that is the key to happiness, but food makes it real hard for me to atain desirelessness. Anyway, below are lots of yummy savory foods from across my travels, enjoy! Continue reading “Savory Food Around The World”
