The ancient town of Luang Prabang nestled in the mountains northern Laos. It was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1995, considered by many as the heart of Laotian culture. There are stunning views in every direction from the surrounding mountains, to the quaint streets in town. The spectacular water views of the two rivers, Nam Khan and Mekong Rivers, snake their way through and around the area provide a wonderful back drop any time of the day.
There are no shortage of markets in Chiang Mai, but I do have a favorite. I just love the Sunday Night Market near Tha Phae Gate.
When visiting Chiang Mai, it just would be complete without checking out one of the many markets offered around town. We really enjoy walking around the Saturday night market, so we thought we would take you on a bit of a photo walk. So come along with us and you can see the Silver Temple too!
I just love Friday’s around our town of Almuñécar. It was dark when I awoke this morning, about 7:30am, and I went upstairs to check email and begin my day. Just out our picture window/ sliding glass doors, is our awesome view of San Cristóbal Beach. An added bonus every morning is our view of a spectacular sunrise. Today was no exception,as nature was there to paint a perfectly colorful picture for me once again.

There is a weekly Friday market in Almunecar, Spain is called the “Mercadillo”. I have been wanting to really check this out, as the week prior we just took a cursory peek. We heard it was open from 9:00-13:00. So we dropped the kids at school, just before 9:00 and headed over. Apparently, the vendors are still setting up around 9am, so we roamed around town and returned about 10:00 to check it out. Continue reading
During the week, we have been busy with either looking for a place to live or with administrative type work to get registered. The weekend has arrived and now we can just relax and play. Continue reading
