The Women In Travel Summit WITS Was A Game Changer

I am officially dealing with a WITS hangover! For the most part, us bloggers have kind of a lonely life.  What I mean by that is that you spend a huge chunk of your time sitting in front of your computer and stare at a screen. Sure, you engage on social media but there is little face to face contact with your tribe- those fellow bloggers that seem to be the only people who truly understand your work. We all have family members and friends who are clueless about what we are doing.  They ask “what is this blog…

Explore Wisconsin-North Point Lighthouse Milwaukee

Discover Wisconsin! With the arrival of Spring comes a yearning to get out and explore.  So last weekend was the perfect time to begin my Wisconsin adventure.  I have made it my mission to travel around Wisconsin and discover places and things to do that are right in my backyard and write about them to promote Wisconsin travel.  There are so many places, natural, cultural, historical, and downright plain interesting to see and do in my home state.  I want to share my discoveries, some lessor known, and some well known, to those of you who may not be familiar…

Sault St. Marie Area and The Soo Locks

Exploring the Upper Peninsula of Michigan is one of the most picturesque things you can do.  With miles of Lake Superior coastline with sandy beaches, to waterfalls, the UP has it all. For many years every July Megan and I would pack our bags for the week and join my parents outside of Escanaba, Michigan.  From that home base, we discovered many places to see in the UP.  We frequently took side day trips to destinations all over the area for things to do. It’s no wonder that Michigan’s UP is listed as Lonely Planet&#8217…

Traveling On The Path To Self-Discovery

Imagine you are thousands of miles from home in a place you have never been before and yet you feel oddly settled, like you have been there many times before.  It’s a feeling so strong that it knocks the wind out of you for a few moments. This is just what I experienced the first time I went to Paris. It may sound corny, but I always tell people that I had to go to Paris to find myself.  From the time I entered the city on that bus I felt at home.  Like I BELONGED there.  I…

Hidden Places To See In Paris- Rue Cremieux

If you are looking for a hidden gem in Paris, Rue Cremieux is it! Rue Cremieux is a quiet pedestrian street tucked away just off of bustling Rue de Lyon. This street is roughly a 15 minute walk from Bastille in the 12th Arrondisement. It’s easy to miss and only takes about 5 minutes to walk it’s whole length, but I classify it as one of my must sees in Paris. The colorful cottage facades, make Rue Cremieux a breath of fresh air from the neutral beige and gray architecture of the rest of the city…

10 Travel Quotes For The Midlife Woman

Travel Enriches Your Life You don’t need to travel to the ends of the earth.  Maybe discovering a  State Park is more your speed. That’s okay, travel is more about discovering yourself than how many stamps you collect in your passport.  I did not truly begin my travel adventures until age 48 which means it’s never too late to explore. So get out of your comfort zone and if you ever wanted to go to Italy, just do it!!  Maybe these travel quotes will inspire you. Here’s 10 Of My Favorite Travel…

Tuesday Travel Snapshot-Paris Love Locks

Love them or hate them- it seems Paris  cannot escape the infamous love locks.  Despite the city’s efforts to stop the tourists from professing their undying love for each other sealed with a lock, they  just keep showing up. Read about how they dismantled the 45 tons of locks from the Pont des Arts bridge in 2015 here. Not only did I spot them on various bridges, they seemed to show up at many places. No metal structure is immune! FYI: I did not partake in this crazy tradition How do you feel about the locks? Yes or…

Lampposts Outside The Louvre

This photo of the row of lampposts in the courtyard outside the Louvre is one of my favorites from all the hundreds I took in Paris in September.  My goal was to take enough pictures to keep my Instagram account supplied until my next trip to Paris! If you don’t already, follow me on Instagram (@lorilovesparis) to see all my photos. I was going through  my Paris photos (again!) and decided instead of writing a full blog post today, I thought I would share some of my favorite photos with you. This photo just puts me in such…
