Travel Theme: Cheerful

‘Tis the season for goodwill, cheer and other things that may give us the holiday feels. Yes?

The holidays are beautiful in California, especially in San Diego.

It’s a dog’s world.

I melted when my hubby texted me this photo of our dog last week.

Travel Theme: Trees

Somewhere over the rainbow… Palm trees sway.

Paper lanterns danced on an island breeze at the Royal Kona Resort.

Morning walk past the Hulihe‘e Palace in Kailua-Kona.

Trees offered shade as we took a break from our hike on the Ala Kahakai Trail.

The public trail by the coast connected beaches and ran behind luxury properties and resorts.

We started our hike at Hapuna Beach. We ended it at Mauna Kea Beach. The view was stunning, from beach to beach.

Travel Theme: One Colour

One colour to bring them all and in the darkness bind them…
Not exactly. Still, this is a fun photo challenge.

Travel Theme: World Cups

I got a kick out of watching World Cup matches in Peru. I don’t speak Spanish. However- it seemed like all the sports networks generated so much analysis, commentary and chatter on every aspect of this international game. It sounded like they talked more about these matches than what I see and hear on American football.

Also, I had my fill of drama on the pitch. It was painful to watch Germany beat Team USA. It felt bizarre to cheer on Portugal, who helped us stay in the game.

More so-called “World Cups” spotted on our trip.
Silver Treasure in Museo Larco
Silver cups inside Museo Larco.

The museum also has this amazing collection of ancient pottery pieces.
