My heart breaks… The beautiful Notre Dame de Paris, such an iconic cathedral, burns. We were just there a few months ago, in November 2018. We climbed as high as permitted to the bell tower. It’s magnificence cannot be overstated. The loss … tragic. Architecture….I have been in love with these flying buttresses since I was in the 6th grade. Medieval architecture, the dawn of … Continue reading Beloved Notre Dame
Photo by Paul Gaudriault City of Lights I’d always thought of planning a trip to Paris. In my youth, I had grand thoughts of ‘finding myself’ as I traversed the European countryside. Those dreams, scoffed; left to die in fear and irksome day-to-day life, were never really forgotten. Merely shelved for future dreams. Adventures. Walking the streets with my camera, eating delectable pastries, sipping coffee … Continue reading City of Lights

Dear Mom and Dad, We’ve landed in Prague 💕 We’ve all gotten a little rest, but are going to try to stay up until at least 8-9pm local (6 hours ahead of EST) to get into the Prague schedule quickly. We tried to pack light, but it always seems like so much more when you’re dragging it through the airport! We love you guys, … Continue reading Prague: We’ve Landed!!
Planning for travel in Prague has been a dream come true! While it’s one thing to study history, nations, geography, and governments, it’s quite another thing to actually walk the paths of those who have come before us.
