When I started this blog a little more than 3 months ago, it was basically just to chronicle my travels.  I planned to only use photos that were taken by yours truly.  I still plan to use only my own photos EXCEPT when I am planning to travel to a new place and want advice on whether I should go and or what I should do when I get there - IF I go. 

Here is a photo of a place which I think is my dream vacation.  I wanted to reach out and ask my audience if they have been to this supposed island paradise, heaven on Earth, or most beautiful place in the world?  I got this photo from Pixabay and the photographer is "WikiImages".  You can see 2 photos of Bora Bora at this web address:  http://pixabay.com/en/photos/?q=bora+bora&order=best&image_type=&cat=&orientation=

Pixabay is very selective of the images they make available for use so you can be assured that you will probably find some nice images to use for whatever purpose you need them for and not be concerned about a copyright violation :)  To view more specific information about using photos from Pixabay please see http://pixabay.com/en/service/faq/

 If you've been to Bora Bora, please let me know what your thoughts are.   Basically, I want to know if it's worth the high price or is it all hype.  If you loved it what did you do for activities?   Thank you in advance :)

Visiting the Lone Tree of Wanaka in New Zealand

I will discuss my beyond fabulous photo workshop with Trey Ratcliff in Zealand in my next post.  For now, I thought that I would share some photos of the "Lone Tree of Lake Wanaka" and me wearing a dress at the beach.  As you will see, this seems to be an ongoing issue for me ;)

  During my recent trip to New Zealand, I spent several days at Lake Wanaka.  It's a very picturesque area and quaint small town which has a very well known tree known as the "Lone Tree of Lake Wanaka".  I visited it two times the first time was at sunset. Being a huge animal lover, I like the one with the ducks better:


 On my way to dinner wearing a dress, I decided to stop by the tree one more time because it's so beautiful and seems a little lonely despite probably being one of the most photographed trees in the world.  

At first I saw a cute little girl standing right next to the tree:


Then I saw her cute little dog who wanted to play fetch :)

Last year in northern Maui, Hawaii my friend Kathy and I were meeting some friends in town for dinner and ended up at Paia Beach.  It was a little stormy and cool, but the waves were huge so we wanted to stop and take photos.  Click on the thumb nails if you want to see an enlarged photo of me not dressed appropriately for the beach at another time.
