There are two kinds of people who go on holiday – those that travel and those who vacation. What’s the difference you might ask? The traveler wants to see and experience everything to learn about a destination while the vacationer prefers to relax in a beautiful destination, sipping on a cocktail soaking up their surroundings. One is not better than the other, just that there are difference ways to see this beautiful world.
One of my favorite things about traveling is the chance to take pretty pictures. And while you can take a pretty picture allllll day long, for me, there is one time of day that I absolutely love above all else: Blue Hour! Prior to investing in a quality camera, I had never heard of “Blue Hour”, but once I learned what it was, it changed the way I enjoyed the evenings, especially while traveling. So what is Blue Hour and how can you take Blue Hour photos?

While Kentucky may not be my home town, it is where I call home. Home is wherever my parents happen to be. And at the moment, they call the Bluegrass State of Kentucky “Home-Sweet-Home”. Few places in America can match the scenery, history and mystique of Kentucky and just saying “Kentucky” brings images of sleek and magnificent Thoroughbreds gallivanting through lush pastures and the history of the Civil War and Bourbon distilling comes to mind.
Europe is already an intriguing place to visit, as well as the most popular tourist destination in the world.

Oh Heidelberg, how thou have but stolen my heart! Ok, ok, perhaps I’ve been talking about Shakespeare too much with students, but tis’ true! Ich hab’ mein Herz in Heidelberg verloren in 2007 and I never got it back! As one of Germany’s most romantic towns, located along the Neckar River nestled in a wooded gorge with the stunning ruins of the Heidelberg Castle perched above the town, Heidelberg is one town I keep going back to over and over again. It never ceases to loose its appeal, and yet I can always find some new things to do in Heidelberg!
