Windows Around the World


Today is a special day for me — it’s my second I-quit-my-jobaversary!  I can’t believe it’s been two years since I walked out of my office, never to return.  I can’t believe I’ve been living off my blog for this long.

There’s a lot to process, which I will be doing later.  Between the amazingness of TBU Porto, the incredible fun I had here in Porto (a city that I was ambivalent about before but now LOVE), and the sheer amount of port I’ve consumed in the past week (about twenty times more than I’ve had in the past 28 years), I’m still reeling and recovering.  Expect more later.

For now, a simple #FriFotos post — this week’s theme is WINDOWS!  I love when #FriFotos does simple themes!

How amazing is the glass on this window in Liechtenstein?

A round window in Reykjavik, Iceland.

A lovely window in a door in Rockport, Massachusetts.

A self-portrait that I actually don’t hate — at a window on top of the bell tower in Rovinj, Croatia.

Giant windows in a yoga pavilion — with Nourish Retreats in Sayulita, Mexico.  I want to go back there.

Dancing in the window in our suite at the Palazzo in Las Vegas.  Pretending to be putting on a show for the boys when we know the windows are all one-way glass.

The brightly decorated windows of Hostel Pipistrelo in Pula, Croatia.

Some beautiful window flowers just outside Salzburg, Austria.  I love the colors!

And finally, at the Dolce & Gabbana window in Florence, Italy, my sister pointed out that the fly was down.  NOT IMPRESSED.

Happy Friday, everyone!

    Great and inspiring blog. That pic of Austria reminded me of many wonderful holidays, especially at Christmas, in the town of St. Wolfgang.

    Plus I really admire your get up and go. This is what we are all about at Wired for Success.

    And…you have given me great ideas about how to find an interesting travel shot that ISN’T a view.
