I am not quite sure this is a real term,
but it clearly defines a real problem.
Going through my photographs, my hands found a few poloroids I had taken in my preteen years. Here is a fun memory of spending time with my daddy in Austria. Posing for my dad in his sunglasses and with his beer (my coca-cola is there to the side), with the snowy alps in the background. Continue reading
One of the ‘must see’ places on our trip to Paris, France for our anniverasry was the Love Lock Bridge. I had only heard about this in recent times and had since been wanting to see it in person. In fact there is not just this one love lock bridge in Paris, but many all over the world. They love lock bridges started popping up in the 2000s and lovers worldwide come to leave a token. Basically you come and leave a padlock locked onto the bridge, gate, or fence and throw away the key into the water below. Many of hte locks are engraved or inscribed with intials and hearts.

Time for our next Travel Throwback and today I share with you a photograph taken about thirty miles from where I live now, almost thirty years ago. How wonderful to see that in all the mobility and travels in the last thirty one years I can return to the same areas from my past. For a third culture kid like myself, that is as closest to having a ‘home’ as I can find. I look forward to going back to Stonehenge soon to see it with my husband and sons this time. Tis a shame you cannot get as close to it as you once could but will be awesome to see such an amazing historical structure outside of our current home in Bath, England.
Welcome back to my new Travel series for Thursdays on A Compass Rose called ‘Travel Throwback’. This is where I dive into my old photo archives and share a photograph from my travels. Fueled by the lovely snow photographs from friends I wanted to post up a wintery shot for the travel throwback. This photograph was taken at the USAF Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
