    Impressions of Portugal #VikingSocial

    Prior to receiving an invitation from Viking River Cruises to participate in the #VikingSocial cruise on the Douro River, I knew very little about Portugal. I was aware  that Port wine was made in Portugal, and that cork trees grew there. Anything else I might have learned was surely forgotten as soon as I put down the pencil after taking whatever high school or college test I had bothered to study for in the first place. This trip afforded me […]

    Photographing #DoorPorn in Castelo Rodrigo, Portugal

    For centuries, Arabs, Jews, and Christians have peacefully coexisted in the village of Castelo Rodrigo, Portugal. As an invited participant in the #VikingSocial Portugal’s River’s of Gold cruise, I had the opportunity to explore and photograph the 13th century fortress. One of my quirks as a photographer is photographing old doors. I found that the combination of old wood, stone walls, and growing vines made the #DoorPorn in Castelo Rodrigo some of the most interesting that I’ve encountered in all of my […]

  • Paris through the eyes of Expedia’s Local Experts

    Paris through the eyes of Expedia’s Local Experts

    We had never been to Paris so when the opportunity arose for us to see the city of lights through the eyes of Expedia local experts, our bags were packed before you could say merci beaucoup.

I went online, entered all the flight information, pre-paid ($63.00 from the airport to the hotel) and the driver waiting for us at baggage claim. Having never been to Paris before, this took the stress out of navigating from the airport to the hotel after an 8-hour red eye flight.
