Weekly Photo Challenge: Foreign

An odd food spot trend in Barcelona: naming restaurants after American states. I ran past “Nebraska” in our L’Eixample neighborhood. We also found “Kentucky” on one of our museum trips.

In Sitges, “Kansas” had a lovely bar on the beach.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Silhouette

Today – I’m pouring over political highlights from last night’s Presidential debate.
Last night – I cheered on the Giants with my hubby and puppy on our couch.
Last weekend – I said “Adios” to Spain and flew back home to the Bay Area.

Now, I’m going over a ton of vacation photos. I spotted this cross on the Santa Cova trail on Montserrat. You can read more about our day trip out of Barcelona on my Eurotrip blog.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Solitary

If I wanted to see any photos of me in St. Petersburg, I had to get creative. I took advantage of the huge mirrors inside the Mariinsky Theatre for this shot with my Droid X.

Mariinsky Theatre
It’s a beautiful venue for ballet. I enjoyed my solo work trip/vacation in Russia.

I’m also ready to travel again! I have a never-ending “to do” list for our Barcelona trip. I’m doing the thumbs up/thumbs down process with my mental wardrobe. My bedtime reading: Lonely Planet Guidebook to Barcelona.

I also want to straighten out the moving box jungle inside my home office before I step on the plane at SFO. It may sound ambitious. I think I can do it.

Soon, I’ll be updating this blog with photos from Spain.

Woot!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Hands

I gave up on my Droid X. I was fed up with the freezing and corrupted photo/videos. Also, phone rebooting without warning – not cool.

I dived back into geocaching when I switched to the iPhone. I missed the hunt. The mind puzzles tickled me.
Quarry Park Geocache
I believe the best part about geocaching: exploring places that were off my radar. We spotted this cache at Quarry Park in Half Moon Bay.

Pretty Geocache!
