Welcome to Note to Traveler
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 street photography, architecture, abandoned buildings and all kinds of interesting doors. As a source of inspiration, I often use Photo Challenge prompts when creating content for this blog. Note to Traveler is my creative space to learn and grow as a photographer and writer, as well as, have fun too!
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.
- 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 back-up 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
