Hello and welcome to my blog. This is a compilation of travel stories, photos and places that I have visited over the years (although once in a while I will include places that I WANT to visit!). I love to travel and am also a bit of a "foodie" so every now and then I will probably start talking about my favorite restaurants too. Enjoy!

San Francisco - Home Sweet Home... Again!

Okay, so San Francisco is not entirely my home again but close enough! :-) I recently moved back to the San Francisco Bay Area and am still deciding where I want to live "full-time", but I have been spending time back in the beautiful city of San Francisco and the gorgeous weekends that I have experienced recently are a definite sign that I should seriously consider moving back there for good!

Last weekend I was treated to 70 degree weather with hardly a cloud in the sky so I couldn't pass up an opportunity like this. I went down to Chrissy Fields after breakfast on Saturday morning and took some photos of the Golden Gate Bridge from the beach. What a phenomenal site -- one of the best places to view the Golden Gate and SF Bay. I hope you enjoy these pics below.

Black and White Africa Photos

(Photo above is Sunrise over Kruger National Park, South Africa)

Hello everyone! I apologize for my long absence but I have moved back to Northern California and started my new job so things have been pretty busy... I am very excited because I just bought my new Canon 50D camera and am ready to start taking pics again! My new camera also inspired me to go back through my photos from my recent Africa trip and pull out some of my faves that I have not yet posted here on my blog. I am also learning some new editing techniques in Photoshop so please bear with me as some of these are total experiments...
