My entry into #SunsetSunday, a Twitter hashtag where travel bloggers share their best sunset photos, founded by Craig Zabransky of StayAdventurous.
One of the best things about interacting with other bloggers on Twitter is that people are always coming up with new ideas. Craig Zabransky, who blogs as Stay Adventurous, started Sunset Sunday on Twitter as a way to show off his fabulous sunset photos from around the world. Check them out here. On this holiday […]

And one of my Twitter buddies, @thenotoriousmeg (I love her name, it sounds so gangster), had an even better question: Where are the places […]
