Top Ten Favorite Travel Photos of 2013

10 countries and countless cities made it on my 2013 Bucket List. France, Dominican Republic, Bermuda, Jordan, Aruba, Curacao, Canada, USA, Mexico, and Fiji were all part of my whirlwind of adventures and new experiences. I never envisioned such an amazing year of opportunity; my life continues to be a dream come true. I am blessed. Some people create a bucket list because they are dying; I created one because I want to live.

Here are my top ten favorite travel photos from 2013.

Number 9 – The Streets of Marseille

Old Man in Marseille, France

I don’t know the man in the photograph; I didn’t speak to him or get his name. I just felt like it had a story to tell. The buildings are aged and covered in the marks of time and experience. The white-haired man slowly worked his way up the stone street toward the unknown… at least for me.

Where do you think he’s going? Where do you think he’s been?

  1. I think he is going home after having been in the local cafe or bar, having morning coffee with some of the other old men in the town! Great colors.


  2. I lovelovelove this photo! The colours are beautiful and I can just picture that gentleman walking around the cobbled streets. Lovely 🙂


  3. This could be a street in Lisbon, or so many places in France and Italy. I love it. I like your idea of presenting the photo to students and letting them write a story! I think he is headed to the square for his coffee and a game of backgammon! (Oh my, is he in Istanbul Turkey??…he is for me!)

  5. Vive La France! I agree, that the older gentleman is probably going back to his place, after swapping war stories with his friends. This caption brings back great memories, of my visits to France. Very telling shot. You captured a time in which one can reflect on what life should be about. Blessings.


  6. I too enjoyed this picture and also envision him coming back from a cafe after visiting with friends. Beautiful picture! Yes, think it would be great to have children in a classroom and come up with ideas of what they think. Enjoying this series of pictures..


  7. Love the photo. There’s a story there. The old man has been visiting friends at a local café, reminiscing about the old days and all of the friends who have passed away, especially the love of his life, and is now walking back to a lonely home, to wait alone for the next morning and another visit to the café, possibly with one of the old friends now missing from “their” table, and wondering who will be the next one to pass.
