Monday Montage: Maiden Voyage

I have been thinking for a while now that I would like to add another day to my scheduled blog posts. The problem was that I couldn’t decide on what I should do with it. Then the other day, I was out and about and I started texting my Mom pictures of the things I saw as I went about my day. The pictures I sent her were not of tourist attractions or monuments, they weren’t even that clear, they were just blurry idea’s of what I was seeing at that moment. I realized that I wanted people to see what I see normally while we are traveling, not just the “sights”.

I am hoping that this will this give you, my wonderful readers, a chance to see more of what I see of the places we go. My photography skills leave much to be desired at this point, but bear with me, a by-product of the Monday Montage will be that it will make me take more pictures every day and because of that hopefully my smartphone photography will improve.

So here it is, the maiden voyage of Monday Montage. I hope that you enjoy seeing our journey as well as reading about it on Wednesday and Friday. Thanks again for following along on our adventures!

My favorite breakfast place down the street from our house. These ladies make the best cheese dan bing (a savory crepe, a slice of american cheese and an egg rolled up and covered in miso syrup) around.

An advertisment I saw while walking. Did you know that everyone shops here while wearing pink wigs?... Neither did I!

    • I totally agree. When looking back through the travels we have had so far, it is not the tourist sights (although they have been amazing) that stick out in my mind, it is the everyday things that do. 🙂

  1. I really like the “Monday Montage” Jen. Helps me pop into a world I’m totally unfamiliar with. If I could send you a picture right now, it would show the view out my bedroom window – lots of green trees against a rainy sky. This is my view as I’m working on my lecture for tomorrow night!

  2. I was looking for an excuse to buy that pink wig, now I’ve got it! Hmmm can you pick me up the groovy pink tights and 60’s dress?
    Love the pictures; helps me to envision you as you go about your day. You should post the bus pictures you sent me. I think many will think of busses with an entirely different picture in mind. At least if they have ridden the Greyhound bus to SF! Keep
    em coming!
