My inaugural flight

Sunset over the Pacific ocean as seen from a Boeing… just one of the great moments from my travels.


Hi everyone,

My name is Barb. I’m a US expat who lives near Paris. I’m living my “second blog life” as I end one blog and begin a new one.

This new creation is all about my travels with my husband, ( I will call him D), as documented on our Nikon D 50. Since we have gone digital in 2005, we have been taking pictures everywhere we go.So far, our black box friend has taken us through the USA,Canada and different regions of France.

We have some great moments captured on past trips, and will be sharing some of the best with you. We might even drag out a few of the better scanned paper pictures, and also show a few of these.Because I’m like you all; I too have my stock of paper photos at home

I’m also looking forward to sharing future trip photos also. Because when you love to travel, you are always thinking where to go to next !

A very special message to my old bloggie friends:

“Thanks so much for making it over. Your continued friendship and support mean everything to me. Stay in touch with me ! “

  8. Hi Barbara – Great to see you Up & At it again. Wonderful, in fact….so welcome to your new blog and all those photos of places you’ve seen and thanks for including me too! You’ve taken off in style with that beautiful sunset and skyscape – the world is your oyster, the space is limitless – go for it!!

  9. Wow what a big difference in “look” from the old blog. It ‘s got more class to it!

    Looking forward to more travel photos….can you imagine if my father knew how to blog? It would be a hoot to have him navigating through the blogosphere!

  10. Hello ladies-

    Joyce- Welcome on board. I’m doing fine and yes, I’m gaining altitude. It is going to do me good to have this new blog. You are so welcome ;how could I forget you. It did me so much good talking to you. The sunset was rather symbolic for me at that, but so lovely.It’s not sad at all but warm and OPTIMISTIC !

    Yes, the world is an oyster and there are such beautiful things on the table !

    Hugs xx

    Ro- Howzit !
    I agree that Word press designs do rock ! I had a hard time deciding… Blogger should put some fresh air in their templates.
    Hang on there; I expect to be publishing on Monday .

    I’m going to have fun and yes, get more creative !!

    Aloha !

    1. Hi Lees,

      Welcome ! So glad to have you here ! And now that you ( I think) are back from a trip, you will have photos to share too. I’m looking forward to it.
      Now isn’t that a beauty to see a sunset way above in the sky ? Very special; it has only happened to us once and was worth photographing & then sharing !!

      Bises to my travelin’ friend & neighbor xxx

    I love that sunset too; it was one of the rare moments during our past trips when we did witness this. A gift from the sky.

  14. Lovely! Did you know that I have never flown across the Pacific Ocean? Every time I went to Asia or to the South Pacific, I flew across Europe and Central Asia. Once day…
