About:One Picture At A Time

It is my intention over the next year or so to pursue my grandparents, my Nanny and Papa, across the earth. During their long and adventurous lives, they visited some of the world’s most interesting places and experienced first-hand the natural and manmade wonders of the earth. After several days sorting through thousands of picture slides and a week more scanning and researching, I am left with almost 600 images of this couple spanning the globe. It is my hope to follow them. Now to get to all 600 would be impossible. But one at a time, with the blessing of my friend Molly, the patience of my boyfriend Mark, and a steady supply of red wine, I hope to follow in their footsteps, see what they saw, stand where they stood and take a picture. This blog is dedicated fondly to not just my Nanny and Papa, but to my entire family that has instilled in me an unquenchable wanderlust. From family camping trips in Colorado, to backpacking across Europe, the more I am blessed to see of this amazing planet, the more I want.
