Walking along the Roman Forum, the heart of the Roman Empire, I could not help wondering what life must have been like for the ancient Romans who called this city home. I imagined what the streets may have looked like and what latest fashions inhabitants wore as they strolled along these ancient avenues. I am happy and grateful that ancient sites such as these exist to allow history buffs like me the opportunity to dream of life in the distant past. I owe a debt of gratitude to archeologists who work tirelessly to preserve ancient sites in honor of our collective human heritage.
Vendors selling freshly prepared conch ceviche from their boat in Nassau, Bahamas. Uhm hmmm good!
Our gastronomic adventures in Spain were so decadent and self indulgent that I can only describe my photos of them as pure “food porn.”
The highlight of our dining frenzy was definitely our visits (yes, plural) to El Quim, a small tapas counter inside the historic Merkat de Sant Josep de la Boqueria in Barcelona. Everything we sunk our teeth into was absolutely out of this world good!

Hawks over Óbidos, a picturesque town nestled within ancient castle walls in Estremadura Province, Portugal.
I absolutely fell in love with Barcelona, a dynamic city where ancient Roman walls and Gothic buildings somehow symbiotically co-exist with some of the quirkiest Modernisme architecture the world has ever seen. This is a photo of Antoni Gaudi’s iconic Casa Mila…simply spectacular!
