Auvers-Sur-Oise is a great day trip from Paris. As I sat on the train, I imagined I was Van Gogh, Monet, or another impressionist escaping to the countryside. If you’d like to know more about the town, you can check out my blog post about it.
Here is a video I took while at Dr. Gahet’s home (Van Gogh’s doctor).
Arriving at Vaux le Vicomte right when they opened revealed a quiet landscape shared with a handful of people.
I’ve shared my packing secrets on here already, but today I present a video for all of you visual learners out there. If you’d like a written version, check out my article here. Join me as I show you how the liberated traveler packs (and I teach it all in less than 15 minutes).
This is a bit goofy, but I got the idea to make a reflective video featuring pictures of myself through travel. I tried to put them in chronological order. I think it would be really cool to go back to when I first traveled, but I don’t have those photos here, and they haven’t been scanned yet.
What are some things I noticed? Different hair trends, my aging face, increasing number of friends as I become more extroverted, but in the end, I see myself at my best.
What would you see if you could follow yourself through your travels?
What are your favorite things to shop for when you travel?
If you thought things were looking pretty good on here before, wait till you see what I can do this summer. This weekend I upgraded my technology. Along with my Canon 60D, I now have a Canon Vixia HF G20 and a Mefoto tripod. I plan to incorporate lots of videos and images to enhance the content of my writing. Check out my video I made today as practice with my new camera. Now you can put a voice and face to this blog (I’m not sure if that is a good thing or not…).
