Memories for Happiness

It smells like freedom and desire
It feels like the perfect moment at the end of a first date with someone you’re head over heels for
It tastes like your new favorite food
It looks like the most exciting thing in a wonderous place
It’s that natural talent that makes you want to jump in
It’s how you light up whenever you talk about your passion
It’s when you fell in love with your favorite song
It’s those times you let yourself feel young without a care in the world
It’s comfort and adventure
It’s everything that can make me smile.
It’ those memories of every good moment that remind me to be happy.

Fall into October

It’s Fall and there are Pumpkins everywhere. Costumes and decorations fill the store windows and haunted housing seem to appear. It is such a festive time. So I went to a pumpkin festival.

There were pumpkins of all sizes and people walking around in costumes and pumpkin hats.

Hope all of you lovely travelers find something festive this season and enjoy all of those fall flavored treats.

Summer in September

Oh this September has started out with a heat wave. It was so hot out that I drank more than my body weight in water and was still thirsty!

It was a perfect day to lay out on the grass or to go inside any place with working air conditioning. There were tons of people laying out so I guess I had the right idea. 😊

And what better way to cool off than to sit in a wonderful restaurant and order some nice cold gelato. As well as a tirimisu- because variety is important!

Happy travels everyone and enjoy the sweet taste of every dessert! I know I did.

August Adventures

August has been filled with such a variety of things from the day to the night. From delicious flavored teas with boba, to nights meeting actresses and directors. It’s nice to know that I don’t need to travel far to spark an adventure or to run into something randomly and beautiful magnificent. Happy travels and may the adventures stay sweet.

Oh my, July!

Hello my lovely little travelers,

Oh my it’s July again. Today has been a lovely little adventure. I spent the day running out of the house to start the day with the sunrise. Hopping on a bus headed South falling asleep until I reached the last stop. Then off to a street filled with restaurants and shop at a time so early only a couple things were open. As the day progressed so did the heat. Breakfast by the fountain followed by reading a new book was a nice beginning to the day.

As it turned to mid-day I made my way to an Art Museum. It’s a nice experience to walk through museums and galleries to see the different works of art through a myriad of cultures and times.

Then a snack and an exploratory walk to fill the time. Sporadically photography sneaks it way into the day. The weather seemed to get hotter and hotter throughout the day. This lead to a mission to find some water, shade, air conditioning, or any sort of drink to find a little relief. Thank goodness for bookstores with the cafés! Multiple drinks purchases; one for there and one for the road. An increase in hunger and spike in my energy lead me to a restaurant with deliciouslly aromatic pizza. One last walk around the shops and talking to a stranger before heading back North before the sun starts to set.

It felt too ealry to go home and much too far. The bus rides lets me rest from all the movement of the day, with the added bonus of air conditioning. A few cities down is a Mall that became a meeting point. Music fills my ride making the time feel as if it is going faster.

I stepped off the bus and a wave of a slightly dryer heat hit my face. The mall is just across the way.
A face all too familiar reaches my eyes and we begin to shop and chat with the people running the shops. All sense of time is lost and soon that hot day becomes a cooling night.

The night has yet to end but the tired feeling consumes me and I am pleased with how my unplanned day has unravelled.

Hope you are all having a wonderfully adventurous July filled with delicious food.
