Blogging 201: Give’em What They Want!

If I had to give everyone what they wanted, aside from cash, it would be an experience.  Travel, people, I am talking about travelling.

Of course, I am talking about the most popular experience, travel wise, is France.  Paris, France.  Specifically, the Eiffel Tower.

Eiffel Tower on August 4, 2009

This spectacular edifice to engineering and art in the midst of the ‘City of Lights’ lives up to hype.  There aren’t many tourist sites that do that anymore.  An amazing 360 degree view of the ‘Isl-de-France’ and every major historical site around Paris.

You want to experience Paris, if you don’t already know it.  New York maybe the city that never sleeps, but Paris has moods.  The morning is slow and methodical.  The afternoon is bright and moving.  The evenings are alive and the lights come on at night…for obvious reasons.

Give’em what they want?

The Paris experience is what you want, baby!


Night Time Photo Challenge

This was taken in August of 2008 (?) with a Kodak Z1200 in panorama (as if you didn’t know). The image was difficult to do since I had to brace the camera on top of the railing with the Cathedral behind me at the top of Montmartre.

Back in the Saddle (again!)

The idea of a blog, in my mind, is to write about stuff that interests me and possibly others out across the ‘interweb’.  It has been much too long since my last post.  It was a stab at creative writing that was not as good as I thought it was at the time.

 Îlet du Gosier, off Le Gosier, GuadaloupeSo I come back after a hiatus that included a trip to Guadeloupe (a department of France if you didn’t already know), a high school graduation, and two new (to us) vehicle purchases.

I will endeavour to continue to write, if nothing else, for the purpose of writing.  I will look for more blogs to follow and continue to follow those that I originally followed.  It’s interesting to read blogs that I can relate to, want to relate to, even those I could never relate to.  Who am I to judge, they’re still writing and I’m just getting back from holiday(!).

Thanks to Whirlwind Travel and Bucket List Publications which I still follow (wow, how to live vicariously through a blog!) for unwittingly inspiring me.

I welcome critiques, comments, corrections.

Here we go.  Let’s light’em up!
