Big and Small Trips

Shirl and Rowan, an American couple, are leisurely making their way around the globe and having an excellent adventure.  I had the great pleasure of meeting Shirl as they passed through Paris after winding their way through Japan/Australia/Asia.  There are surely many travel blogs out there but I visited theirs Untethered.us after returning home to Versailles and liked it and their take on life so much that I've signed up for updates.  These two are having the time of their lives and their enthusiasm for the people and places they encounter is both infectious and inspiring.

And over at the Les Chroniques Berliniquaises, the photos of  his weekend trip to Rome reminded me that living in Europe one doesn't have to go very far to see some extraordinary things.

Reading these blogs, the travel bug bites hard.  Time to get out of town and use some of those Air France Frequent Flyer Miles I've been hoarding.  But where?  Arun with a View is proposing Tunisia but I'm not sure I'm ready for "Revolutionary Travel."

All suggestions would be most welcome.

Bon weekend, everyone!

Hi, Victoria, it is good to have made your acquaintance. Thanks so much for linking to untethered.us! Today I posted a picture of a cat I have seen in Paris before. But it is in Lisbon, too! We went out to lunch with Cesar, the guy who is renting us an apartment, and he makes the distinction between vacationing and traveling. Traveling is where you enjoy the people you meet. That is what our trip is all about. Looking forward to reading more of your musings. I love the Flophouse!
Best
