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 !
Don't let the economy keep you from traveling!
Negril, Jamaica: just got back from a week on this beach. A week wasn’t long enough!
Saw this little guy at Boulder Beach in South Africa’s Western Cape last summer/winter (it’s in the Southern Hemisphere after all).
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!

A rainy day in the Paar Mountains. Hope to go back to South Africa someday soon.
