Welcome to Note to Traveler

California Color Splash -2

Hello there! I’m Donna, an amateur photographer and travel writer based in the San Francisco Bay Area of California. Here you will find plenty of travel photos along with a dash of short notes & stories.

My current travel is focused on New England – where I grew up, Northern California – where I live now, and Greece – where I vacation every summer with my husband. Now and then I post about travel to other places or share my thoughts about photography or travel in general.

I have a thing for places by the sea, street photography, architecture, abandoned buildings and all kinds of interesting doors. As a source of inspiration, I may use Photo Challenge prompts when creating content for this blog. Whether you like to travel near or far or prefer to explore places from your armchair, I hope to inspire you to look more closely at the amazing world around you every day.

I Believe…

  • in taking the road less traveled.
  • a good traveler can go with the flow.
  • heavy baggage will weigh you down.
  • a positive attitude is your best travel accessory.
  • beauty lies in the simplest of things.
  • life is too short to wear tight shoes.
  • you should always have a backup plan for food when you travel.

I’m free-spirited, insanely curious, an explorer at heart, and love hanging out with family and friends. This photo of me as a toddler pretty much sums up my personality.

Be brave, try new things, explore!

Yours truly, Donna
