Toronto to Niagara Falls Tour

When I was invited to take a group tour from Toronto to Niagara Falls, I wasn't feeling it. I do not do group tours! If I can make it work on my own, I prefer to do so.

My Favorite Travel Photos From 2011

This year I’ve done a lot of traveling, and of course that means I’ve taken a ton of photos. I’m an amateur photographer, and I don’t know what I’m doing half the time (that’s not entirely true, but it feels like it), but sometimes things just come together and I get a photo I really like. … [Read more...]
