HM-40 Nike Missile Testing Site

What I Wore: Sunglasses: Urban Outfitters Top: Vintage Shorts: Penney’s Loafers: KG by Kurt Geiger While in Florida in 2012 (that post here) we took a day trip down to The Keys.  Out in the brush of Key Largo we came across this abandoned Nike Missile Testing site.  From the outside it was a long narrow building, which had been overgrown with palms. The Shining The inside resembled a hospital, or hotel, as there was a narrow hallway studded with small bedrooms on each side. There were many of these shackles throughout, which made us believe it may have been something…

Little Miss Sunshine State

Being from eastern Canada, Florida is a natural vacation spot for my family.  I’ve been there so many times it has begun to feel like my second home.  We last went there in March of 2013 and stayed in Homestead, right by the Everglades. Here I am with some turkey vultures, re-enacting Hitchcock’s, ‘The Birds’.  These birds are actually a riot to watch.  They bully the alligators around and actually made off with a man’s coat while he was distracted photographing the wildlife.

Upon arriving in Dublin, to the rain, which lasted my entire stay (no sarcasm), I was greeted by my relatives, whom I had not yet met.  They welcomed me graciously into their home and started my visit off right, with a Full Irish.  This being a full Irish breakfast, including eggs, toast, sausages, ham (which they…

A North American Girl in Paris

Six years ago I traveled through Paris, Avignon and Provence.  The highlight was definitely Moulin Rouge, I recommend it for anyone travelling to Paris.  I was there in the middle of July and thus a bit of the whimsy of Paris was swept away to make room for tourists.  I did enjoy the arbitrarily placed carousels throughout the city though. The above photo is what I got when I asked for a hamburger, somewhere in Provence.  The remaining photos are of Provence. Here we are playing with a stray cat in the little stone village we were staying in.  Coming…

Here Kitty Kitty

 These photos were taken in an abandoned house in Port Dover, southern Ontario ten years ago. Welcome!  I thought I would start this space as a place to collect my travel and urban exploration memories.  I’m fascinated by the history of psychology (psychology grad).  Interested in connecting with those of similar interests.  Enjoy!
