Traveler Tim Gibson loves seeing new parts of the world. His latest ventures took him to the southwest of France.

From visiting his nephew high in the Pyrenees,

to enjoying the glorious mountain views of the region,

and to partaking in the spectacular French cuisine.

Next, Tim headed to Paris, which he enthusiastically d-eclairs is his favorite city in the world.

He wandered up and down the streets, slowly observing all of the little things that bring a city together, what the French call a 'flaneur.'

And he headed to his favorite fabric shops on the small streets leading up to Sacre-Coeur in Montmartre.

There he found something that really said France, a candy-striped print with swallows, which echoes a traditional French children's song about the return of the swallows (meaning that summer has arrived).

Thanks for this amazing find Tim! And thank you for all of your support throughout the years, you are awesome!

Here’s to living life uncaged with your flock & to feeling good— because after all, it’s Friday!

Siem Reap, Cambodia is one of my most favorite destinations. The history (both ancient and modern) of the country is absolutely fascinating. I am a veteran of the awe inspiring and massive Angkor Wat temple complexes...many times over, because it never gets boring.
