Weekly Travel Theme: On Display

Ailsa’s weekly travel theme triggered a trip through memory lane – cobblestoned sides streets, cheerful market stalls, colourful street vendors – a common theme throughout many of my travels. I’m mentally returning to Puerto Vallarta and Maui (the goofy shirts and … Continue reading

Weekly Travel Theme: Foliage

Ailsa’s weekly travel theme focuses on foliage this week.  As Albertans only have about 5 months of foliage per year (May through September) if we’re lucky, we enjoy it while we can.  I love fall foliage (just keep hitting next … Continue reading
