    What, no Oregon? Put it on your list: Mt Hood National forest, Hells Canyon area, Opal Creek wilderness and the gorgeous coastline.

      I’ve been to Oregon and loved it! I was 13 though and wasn’t really comfortable blogging about it. There are several places I’ve been that I haven’t blogged about. I would love to make it out to Oregon again soon! Thanks for reading!

    creating a list is such a great idea. I have yet to attempt, but would be fun to recall all the places Ive been.

      Thank you! This isn’t all the places I’ve been, just the ones I’ve blogged about, but I have this huge green notebook that I write everywhere I’ve been. It’s about 70 pages long, but it is so fun to look back on!

    Highly recommend adding some places from Africa, Asia or Middle East to your List – just as I need to add places from the American continents to my list!

    • PaigeBrown
      October 30, 2013 at 8:12 pm

      I would love to visit Africa, Asia and the Middle East! I’m graduating in a little over a month, and I’ll have a lot more time to explore! I’ve mostly gone all over the US for the past few years because I can see the most for my time! Do you have specifics that you would suggest?

      • pamgirlblog
        October 31, 2013 at 12:15 am

        Of course I must say Kenya as a place to visit 🙂 besides that Egypt,Jordan, Syria, Turkey and Israel are amazing. In Jordan its Petra and Wadi Rum that are the highlights. I was fortunate to visit Syria some years back before all the current troubles. I liked soaking up the history of Jerusalem old city in Israel. Turkey is cool – loads of great things to see and do there. Would love to return there.
        SE Asia is pretty easy to travel through – some well trodden backpackers paths and great food! I love Vietnam – spent a month there could have stayed longer! I also have an affinity for Indonesia having lived there for 6 months.
        Ah the list could go on 🙂

    Really nice blog. (thanks for checking out theblacktoe.) Next time you’re in California try to visit the Sonoma Coast at the mouth of the Russian River. The sunsets (and sunrises) are enchanting.

    • PaigeBrown

      I would love to visit the Sonoma Coast. Everything I’ve ever seen of it looks pretty magical! Something to save for next time, I suppose! Cheers!

    I found that we were many times in the same countries and in the same cities or places but… we could not meet even theoretically. I was there before you were born. I wish you to continue to travel, to meet many people, to make friends everywhere. Happy Holidays! …

    • PaigeBrown

    You really have to add the Outer Banks to your North Carolina list. Be prepared to photograph some really neat lighthouses, especially the all-brick construction of the Currituck Beach Lighthouse.

    • PaigeBrown
      March 1, 2014 at 7:29 am

      That’s what my boyfriend keeps telling me! He used to live in the Outer Banks, and I’m moving to Asheville in July with him, and he keeps saying that we HAVE to go to the Outer Banks! I just wrote Currituck Beach Lighthouse to my list! Thank you so much for the suggestion, and for checking out my blog!

    Hi Paige. Quite a wanderer indeed! (and at such a young age!)
    As a frenchman born in Pakistan, raised in Africa, gone to Grad school at the University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa (Roll Tide!) and now living in Mexico… Wanderlust is probably my middle name!
    Love your blog. Honfleur and the Loire’s chateaux are not usual! Tasting your fist glass of wine in Paris is an excellent introduction!
    Thank you for visiting my blog. Do come back as often as you can. I will post many travel-related stuff. And fiction in far-away places.
    Take care

    • PaigeBrown
      March 5, 2014 at 7:44 am


      I think you are a wanderer indeed! I can’t wait to read more on Mexico! I’ve been dying to visit (and not be on a resort).
      Thank you so much! I loved the Loire Valley! I would absolutely LOVE to go back to France and spend weeks in the countryside! Paris was pretty much the perfect place to have my first glass!
      Thank you so much for reading! I can’t wait to discover Mexico’s treasures and read more from your blog! Cheers!


  • brieucgwalder

    Merci Paige! And Bon voyage! I understand u r going to Europe soon. Make the best of it. Do bring a raincoat and umbrella with you. March in Europe (North) can be rainy and cold. Nothing to stop a wanderer. Look forward to see pictures of the places you’ve been.

    One more thing: about Mexico, you have to put Chiapas on your list. Quite far from the madding crowd and lovely. Went there a couple of years back. Thousands of photos I plan to select and share.
    Take care

    • PaigeBrown
      March 5, 2014 at 3:11 pm

      Thanks for the advice! I just threw my umbrella in the suitcase! (I leave Saturday- so excited! Holy, gorgeous! I just googled Chiapas, and it is added to the list! Thanks for such a great tip! I’m hoping within the next year or so to make it down there! I can’t wait! Thanks, again!

      Oh, I KNOW! I have been wanting to go to India for forever, but it seems that another trip opportunity always pops up and takes its place. I will get there ASAP, though. What are your suggestions?
