Greyfriars Kirkyard

Scotland. It's Halloween, so of course, my travel tale had to come from a graveyard! Originally the question was... which one? I visited quite a few graveyards while in Scotland.

Doors of Paris

Doors of Paris

Paris. When I traveled to Paris this past spring, I saw many beautiful sights. I've shared a few of the highlights from places we visited while there.
