Behind the Doors Of My Travels

The curiosity of what is behind every culture, every country, every person, lies behind the doors of their houses, business, churches and more.

Alora, Spain
At the time we were passing by this door⬆️ in Alora it was 2pm. All business were closed. Culture at its major splendor! They take a break in the middle of the day. Everybody rest and open their doors for business again, later in the afternoon.
Casablanca, Morroco
The things that happens inside a room, the stories that will develop will start once you get in and close the door. Families in the world are different but the same at the same time. 
 
 
Behind that ⬆️ door is the library of the Parliament of Canada, the only survivor part of the 1916 fire. That door witness the tragic burn of the rest of the building. History and memories hold between a door.

I wonder how many rich people had walk through that door⬆️ in France? How how many enter to apply for a house loan? Or how many went through that door to withdraw the last penny on its account? I just wonder?
 
Quebec

This corner apartment is for rent in Old San Juan Puerto Rico. How many families have lived here? Can you imagine the stories that door hold inside? 
 
When you travel you will encounter a different story in every door that you go through. That’s fascinating! So let’s travel more and start a new travel story when you go through the airport doors!
 
Until then,

An Important Number During Our Honeymoon

We took a MSC cruise on the Mediterranean for our honeymoon. Ge got our own table(723)for our 10 days cruise and Luiza was our server all the time. At the end of our trip we loved Luiza and it was sad to say goodbye. We learned a little bit about her and why she was doing that job. She is a single mom and her mom take care of her daughter so she can provide for them. The way she talked about her daughter was so inspiring and full of emotions and sadness because of the distant between them.
When I reflect on things like this, I have to recognize how bless I am. Also makes me think more reasons for loving travel. When you travel you have the opportunity to meet amazing people, with different cultures but with the same needs that we all have. 
Get inspired to travel, balance your life with amazing experiences, and find a number in your travels that will inspire a whole new story. 😉

Weekly Photo Challenge: Orange you glad it´s photo challenge time?

When I saw the photo weekly challenge for this week  for a moment a wondered if I had any pictures that I could share.

 

Looking through my albums I saw the beautiful sunset that the skies gave to us when we were leaving Lisbon, Portugal on our honeymoon cruise.

 

Then I saw this flower that I photograph in Marseille, France and for some reason today the orange ones and the bag  stand out  more than normal. 😉

And what about this single flower that we encounter in Quebec by the Montmorency Falls, check out the beauty of its center…

 

Or the memories of our first cruise, that for some reason I got an orange bus on the pic.

 

What about this this kind of soft orange reflection of light in Evora’s Cathedral in Portugal.

And no doubt about the kayak that we use on our tour on Florida water.

So, I guess I did have some pics to share, I could share some more if I want to be creative and bring up all kind of orange shades that I could find in my pics.

Well, until then
