By alison - September 7, 2010 (Updated: November 24, 2014)

Las Vegas, San Fransisco, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick ā€“ Iā€™m not sure why I thought Iā€™d have lots of time to blog from the road this summer. I have loads of photos and articles in the works for you and some great adventures to share. For now, I hope you enjoy this little photo essay on How I Spent My Summer Vacation.

    Oh those are awesome photos!!!! Yes I did miss your photos while you were away… I spent my vacation working…. Oh but I guess I did have 5 days off exploring Victoria… Nowhere near as exciting as what you did! šŸ™‚ Can’t wait to hear more.

    OMG…you were in Canada!! I thought I could sense your energy in my sphere…I guess Quebec is never going to be on your itinerary again? Come on….what are the odds of forgetting your purse in a restaurant on the road and adding an extra 6 hours to your already long drive?

    What did I do this summer??? I worked and worked and had lots of visitors here in St. Andre-Avellin….Here is a link to the music festival I was working for in July Aug and September…Check out some of my pics there… http://www.musiquennous.ca/ click on their facebook site and check out the albums…so far I photographed 12 different concerts and the last one happens this Friday night…Great experience but no time for long drives to Nova Scotia or anywhere….

    What are you doing in january?

    Dear Alison,

    So happy to have found your blog! Now that is a summer vacation worth bragging about! Those photos are gorgeous… especially the last one!

    My summer vacation, I hiked Mt Fuji, went to San Diego and LA, and visited Macau.
