Washington, D.C. ~ The featured photo in this set is the “Friendship Archway,” a Chinese gate at H and 7th Street. All photos were taken in the historic Chinatown area, east of downtown along H and I and 5th and 8th street.
Washington, D.C. ~ Captured these beauties while strolling through D.C., mainly around the national mall and monuments. I was fortunate to have visited at the beginning of the spring bloom. Also very lucky to have had perfect weather. Overall, it was a perfect visit!
Montréal, Canada ~ The first photo in this series is of our hotel room at Parc Suites Hotel, 3463 Park Ave, Montreal, QC H2X 2H6, Canada (parcsuites.com). I’m sure there are fancier, newer places to stay nearby, but we greatly enjoyed this particular hotel because of the homely feel of the rooms and friendliness of the staff. You feel like you are staying in your own downtown apartment. From this location we were able to walk in all directions, exploring […]
Montréal, Canada ~ Montréal is a vibrant city, mixed with historic and modern architecture, and equally diverse citizens. Our stay here was brief, but we fell in love instantly. These photos were taken on a stroll one afternoon around the city. I usually jot down the names of the streets and major locations, but I was having too much fun sightseeing, and completely forgot to take notes. Anyhow, you’ll just have to visit to see these places for yourself!
New Orleans, LA ~ Another great trip to NOLA! I have such fond memories of great meals and great conversations with loved ones. We took a haunted tour of the quarter at night.

Walking the Quarter at night was scary enough, but loads of […]

Boise, ID ~ While I lived in Boise, the state capitol building seemed to be under constant construction. It may have since been fully renovated, but somehow I doubt it. Another impressive aspect was the town’s cleanliness (no sarcasm implied; it was unusually clean). I have yet to visit a comparable city, except perhaps for Des Moines, IA. Finally, if you are ever in the neighborhood, you must visit the Egyptian Theater. It was established in 1927, and has been beautifully maintained. […]
