After a week of wedding preparations and maid of honor duties, I wish I were going along on the honeymoon to Greece and Rome. I’m still in Pittsburgh, but this week my travel heart is vicariously living through the bridal couple!!
Hoping to get back on the blogging track this week!
Not sure how I missed out on this given I was living in Asia for two years. Yes, that’s a forty-foot inflatable rubber ducky floating in Victoria Harbor in Hong Kong. This came to my attention because this duck will floating in Pittsburgh in just a few months as part of the International Festival of Firsts. I think I’d want to be anywhere where there’s a 40 foot plaything is drifting along the river for this week’s TTP.

After this holiday weekend and reflecting on the sacrifices of others so I’m able to live my life how I see fit, I’m brought in memory to this place. I started to learn and truly understand this lesson when I was fifteen and went to Normandy, France. Stunningly beautiful and most of all, haunting.
Chattahoochee river walk… that’s a mouthful. With the recent cold snap moving through Pittsburgh and big brother taking a new ladyfriend out there, my travel toes wouldn’t mind dipping in for a stroll along this beautiful Columbus, Georgia river walk.
P.S. TIckets have been bought for one of my American Friday Five places! Travel bug is getting its groove on.
Pgh. I’m so glad to be here in the springtime with such nice weather and time to spend with my family. Life is good in the ‘burgh, my travel heart is firmly stationed here.

Appreciating America and the sites close to home is high on my list of activities since completing my Peace Corps service. Falling Water has been a TTP destination before, but after watching a documentary with my Mom at the local library, I can’t wait for the weather to warm up for us to make our way to the most visited art exhibit in the region. Even if it happens to be a house. One thing the documentary makes you notice is the inside is as much of a must see as the scenery surrounding it.
On such a lovely spring day, I feel so appreciative of the changing of seasons from cold to warm. And especially not to be suffering in the nearly unbearable Thai heat in April. Instead I’m stepping my toes into the tentative spring flowers and dreaming of the day I can see the cherry blossoms in full bloom in this beautiful nation’s capital in Washington D.C.
Yeah, I’m getting a little flower obsessed. There will be more pictures of them coming
