Colleen-McGuire-Minnesota Hola. Bonjour. Ciao. Hello!

My name is Colleen McGuire, and I live in the Lowertown district of Saint Paul, Minn.

Today I travel with my husband, but my parents began taking family vacations when I was young. It started with a long drive in the family Vega hatchback to Colorado and New Mexico. From there our family summer vacations got more extensive, taking me on Amtrak from coast to coast, and overseas to new lands. As I aged, being a single woman couldn’t stop me from traveling. I just went.

On January 1, 2013 I decided to participate in the worldwide 365 Photo Project. I have two rules for myself: 1) all pictures must be taken with my iPhone; and 2) all images and stories must be uploaded from my iPhone to WordPress using the WordPress app. It’s been a fun adventure documenting where my feet land every day.

I hope you enjoy Travel Snapshots as much as I do, and are inspired to wander the world and take pictures with your smartphone or your professional SLR. Just take pictures.
