The Travel Years

I began Meg Travels in August and this month is my fourth anniversary!  It has been so much fun sharing travel adventures from near and far.  When I look for themes over the years I can see that flowers and gardens are some of my favorites, along with doors, sunsets and signs.  I tend to travel in the spring and that is an ideal time to see fresh and colorful flowers.  Autumn is another beautiful season for watching the leaves change color, and it is still warm and sunny.

I will continue to travel so there will be plenty more adventures (with pictures) to share over the next year.  Here are some of the flowers, doorways and other souvenir pictures that I’ve taken over the past four years.

 

A Day in Portofino

I’m back from Italy and after unpacking and adjusting (again) to the change in time zones I’ve uploaded my pictures to the computer.  I haven’t reviewed all of them yet but I took over 1700!  For now I thought some pictures of Portofino might be a good place to start.

During the morning it was both windy and rainy and the ferry service to Portofino was called off.  However, there was a shuttle bus from Santa Margherita Ligure and I decided to take that instead.  Later that morning the weather improved dramatically and it ended up being a beautiful day.  By the way, the bus was full of people with backpacks and it was a challenge staying upright as the bus went around all the curves in the road.  I was happy when we arrived and these were my first impressions of Portofino.

It was a perfect time to take a walk, buy a gelato, and then find a bench to simply admire the scenery.  Sometimes I wish days like this didn’t have to end.
