Storm the Bastille! Vive la France!
Bastille day is France’s national holiday to commemorate the storming of the Bastille. The Bastille was a prison that the French monarchy used to lock up anyone who did not agree with them. On July 14, 1789, a large number of French citizens gathered together to attack the prison and this was the start of the French Revolution.

Bonne fête de la Bastille !
I just got back home from my vacation. I had to be up at 2:30 this morning to catch a bus to Montego Bay from Negril, and after a long layover in Miami I’m home, but pretty much exhausted. Anyway, I’ll be back to regular posting soon. Expect many beach pictures to follow shortly!
Life is either a daring adventure or it is nothing.
A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.
There is no trouble so great or grave that cannot be much diminished by a nice cup of tea.
A wise traveler never despises his own country.
Tourists don’t know where they’ve been, travelers don’t know where they’re going.
