Tag…I’m it. Hostelbookers has created this fun travel round up and 50+ and on the Run has said it is time for me to join the party. I put on my best dress for this shindig, and poured myself a large glass of wine, while I sifted through thousands of travel photos to come up with my favorite seven that fit into the categories listed. Let the celebration begin.

1. A Photo That Takes My Breath Away
Tulum Mayan Ruins, Mexico

While touring the Mayan Ruins of Tulum, there were a dozen views that took my breath away. But, none more than this one of the bluest water I have ever seen.

2. A Photo That Makes Me Laugh Or Smile
Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

This darling little girl loved having her photo taken and has the sweetest smile. I absolutely adore that her toes are curling into the end of her flip flop.

3. A Photo That Makes Me Dream
Arenal, Costa Rica

On the way to Arenal we stopped on the side of the road and peeked through the pushes to unveil this Costa Rican home. It makes me dream of a simpler life, with the rain forest as my backyard.

4. A Photo That Makes Me Think
Holy Cross Chapel, Sedona, Arizona

This photo brings back all the wonderful memories I have of my grandmother. Each lit candle, also makes me think of all the loved ones people have lost.

5. A Photo That Makes My Mouth Water
Salumi, Seattle, Washington

My mouth is watering as I write this! This porky meatball sandwich was made at Salumi, owned by Mario Batali’s father. And it’s official, Papa Batali makes the best meatballs.

6. A Photo That Tells A Story
San Francisco, California

This photo could tell a hundred different stories, and I’ll probably never know which one is correct. But, my tale is that these pretty ladies are full of life while exploring San Francisco. They all daringly chose to hang off the outside of the cable car to get the best experience.

7. A Photo That I Am Most Proud Of
Orvieto, Italy

I just love this photo for the faded, hilly background, the towering cyprus trees and the fact that it is the epitome of Tuscany.
