My Very Favorite Place

My one favorite place doesn’t exist. It  is not my own home or my own bed, like many people my age would say. Rather, it is the places I get to experience the most changes, met the most people, and enhance my understanding. My favorite place is not only one destination, but the places I have been and those I plan to in the future.  They hold a special place in my heart, unlike any other.

It can be crazy realizing that my favorite places are the places I was running around all day and flying on a plane at 5am the next moring. Its even crazier when I started to realize that the places I felt most at home are the ones that I changed every few days. Going from apartment to apartment or from hotel to hotel was where I felt the best.

I’ve never liked to stay still, so that must be where this comes from. I can’t help but think at the same time, the reason I like these quick changes in places to stay is because moving so quickly allows for me to expand and learn more then I would staying in one place. I am lucky enough to  expands my horizon to something new every so often.

I am so thankful for the opportunity I have every so often to hop around the world and explore. I am also thankful for the people i have to do it with. They mean the world to me cause when you  travel with someone theres a whole new side you have not seen of them. And for that I am even more thankful.

 

My favorite place might not be one singular place, but in reality all the adventures stay in one heart.

-Love Chloe Rene💖

Traveling

 

 


fullsizeoutput_14


If you are someone close to me, you know that I want nothing more in life then to travel. Travel brings me closer to my own home and the others that surround me. it opens my eyes to new places, things and people. If I am being honest with everyone, I feel like I learn more traveling then by sitting in every classroom. This past summer I learned about over 4 diffrent cities and the cultures that surround them. I learned the basics of 3 different languages, and can not stop speaking them at home! I believe that no one is made to stay in one corner of the world. You wouldn’t only read one page of a book, would you? Travel takes one’s adventures and turns them into fabulous stories. Travel is something to enjoy all throughout your life. You will never run out of stories to tell, and we all know the most interesting things come from what you don’t experience in your everyday life!✈️📍

Sayings I Live By

“Advice from Sea Turtles,

Swim w/ the Current

Be a Good Navigator

Stay Clam Under Pressure

Be Well Traved

Think Long Term

Age Gracefully

Spend Time at the Beach”

  • This is the most recent qoutes I have choosen to live by. I love Sea turtles. They spend their whole lives traveling and adventuring the              seven seas. They know where and when they want to go. They are always in the water, a place I long to be everyday. So yes, I choose to live like a Sea Turtle!

 

” Life isnt about Waiting for the Storm to Pass; It’s about learning to Dance in the Rain”

  • This was the first quote I ever choose to live by (besides some bible verses). There are many storms in life that everyone deals with beyond our control, but the best thing anyone can do is make the better of it. Anyone can be the sunshine during their own storm or someone elses. This is the joy out of the diversity we all have. We can all be sunshine to ourselves or anyone else if we choose to.

 

” Never Whine and Be Certain that you do not die without having done Something Wonderful for Humanity.”

  • My mother told me this in a note she wrote to me when I was younger. It sits as the screen saver on my computer ,and something I think everyone should at least think about. Whining lets a brute know your in the neighborhood and no one should have to deal with the pain of a brute. As humans we have been given the gift of the ability to make others happy and do something good for them. I believe we should take ever chance we get to.

 

“I Can and I Will.”

  • Its alwasy best to believe in yourself!

Stateside🇺🇸

IMG_1438I mention a lot about my travels outside of the states, but there have also been great travels to many places in the U.S. Most recently I have been to New Orleans, Dallas, and Nashville. I would love to go through and name every single place I have been to in the US, but I do not think there is enough space for that. So, here are a few I have enjoyed the most!

IMG_1391

One of my favorite places I have been in the states is Maui, Hawaii. In 2015, I was lucky enough to go on a daily trip to Hawaii. I believe this is where I started to fall in love with taking and being in pictures of the things and places around me. This was also the 1st summer I had Instagram (which probably means something). Hawaii itself has one of the most beautiful sunsets I have ever seen. The reds and yellows and oranges  descending into the blues of the ocean made me want to never stop watching. Maui also has a beautiful road trip you can take called the road to hanna. In our family jeeps we made the curvy, high trek up the road. Eventually we made it to a space where people where swimming under a water fall. We messed around splashing each other and swimming underneath the waterfall into a cave like area. The beauty of the waterfall canopy was not the only part of this day I remember vividly. Two of my favorite pictures was taken during this trip. Number one being the picture I got jumping off the top of a waterfall during the road trip to hanna. The waterfall wasn’t to huge, and I remember being so happy I had jumped off by the time I had finished. One of my favorite pictures is one that was taken during my trip to Hawaii on National Dance Day (above). My family and I had been playing on the beach all day. Funny story about this beach trip, We decided to go biggie boarding and not only did I get caught under wave after wave. But I also was wearing a strapless bikini. Whoops! Luckily my we where the only ones there!🇺🇸IMG_8072

Another favorite place I have been in the United States is Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I am a history freak, so Philadelphia is obviously one of the best places to visit. I believe I went during 8th grade when we where studying the creation of the modern government (also quite coincidental). During our trip, my father and I went from walking around Independence hall to trying many, many different cheesesteaks. I would say Geno’s had the best.Another food place you have to try if your in philadelphia is the Reading Terminal Market. It is what I found the be the coolest experience the whole time I was there. During my trip I took a lot of pictures, including none other then the one like Rockey when he finished his run around Philly. We went during the fall so not only was the Eastern State Penitentiary open, but it was in halloween mode. My favorite photo from the trip (above) was on a double-decker bus. We spent time on the double decker bus everyday, and I would say its a perfect way to experience Philadelphia.🇺🇸IMG_E9681

The final place I have chosen to write about is Nashville. I have spent countless days in Nashville ever since I was super young. I have been born and raised a Vanderbilt University fan (pictured above) although, I will not choose to go there. I have walked down broadway more then I’ve seen any  broadway productions. I have been to more Vandy football and baseball games then I can even count. And I’ve experienced the culture surrounding my own upbringing in so many different. Nashville is where I get to spend the father daughter time with my dad at all types of sporting events, that every daughter should have. It is where I do my makeup in the car on the way to our  40 yard line season ticket seats. It is where we have friends and a place to stay at anytime. It is truly a city I love with a huge part of my heart. I have had so many great adventures there. One being the past New Years when I got to go to 3 of my favorite restaurants, a Titans Game, and the Midnight Jack Daniels show. The food is amazing there, and so is the experience.🇺🇸

 

XOXO,

CHLOE RENE💖🇺🇸

 

 

 

 

Photographing Greece


IMG_2571

Greece. A lovely land of sea and temples. I do not know of a better place to begin when posting pictures I have taken while traveling. I love to live life behind my professional camera as well as in front of it. Being a traveler means I document the places I have been for my friends, family, and others. I find love and joy in doing this for not only myself, but for others around me.IMG_2449 IMG_2551

The historic sites located in Greece are among the oldest and the most interesting in the world. I’ve never been somewhere with so much ancient history located on a single island or in a single city. It is truly amazing the way the Greeks developed art. The temples where mostly made of marble and I have featured 2. The one at the very top features, The Caryatid Porch of the Erechtheion, Athens and the great entrance to the Acropolis of Athens.The photo directly above this text is from the Ancient Agora of Athens. It is a temple called The Temple of Hephaestus (Hephaisteion) Peristyle.Below this text is a photo of the well known Parthenon.

IMG_2576IMG_1898The seas of the Island of Crete are the bluest I have seen. They are not only gorgeous at sunset, but also during the day time.This allows for some stunning pictures to be taken. None of the pictures i have posted have filters so as to allow others to admire them in all of their beauty. The picture above I took the first night we where in Greece. It was taken from the small house we had rented on the island of Crete in the Aylmrida area . The picture below was taken on the beach in Crete we had next to our house. The photo 2nd from the top is from Athens, where we where able to see the lovely veiw from a hill in Athens.

IMG_2505

 

The pictures I was able to take during my first trip to Greece, are among some of my favorites out of the ones I have taken upon getting my camera! I hope y’all enjoy them to!

Photographing Paris,France


IMG_1446

Paris is a lovely city full of culture and once in a lifetime experiences. This is why i was so excited to be going here last July. Although it was over 95 degrees in a city not meant for over 80, the pictures and experiences I was able to have are well worth the time.IMG_1457

On one of my first days in Paris, we went to visit The Louvre. The picture above was taken from inside the museum, and the picture below is a featured painting located inside. I took a picture of this painting specifically because I believe this is how a true love shall look at his love. Well,maybe ass some cloths, but you get the idea.

IMG_1460

During my trip to Paris, I got the chance to visit the ÎIe de la Cité. This is one of the two island located in the center of Paris itself. This is also the island that the Notre Dame is located one. Below is one of the pictures I took while I was inside. The Notre Dame was as expected. It was beautiful, well taken care of, and full of history.

IMG_1491My favorite view in Paris is the one featured below. My family and I sat by the docks in the city and watched boats go past. The bridge in the picture connects mainland city Paris to the ÎIe de la Cité. If you are every in Paris, I suggest you take the time to sit by the water and enjoy this wonderful view.

Photographing Wales

IMG_1778

When visiting Wales you can photograph everything, from delicious delectables to green hills. And both of those are on here. Above is a plate of lamb from Y Tablot. The lamb covered in bread crumbs was the best lamb I have ever had. As you scroll down, you will see pictures of what I believe is one of the greenest places on Earth. I almost felt like I was in the green place of neverland from the Disney Movie Peter Pan.IMG_1784 IMG_1800 IMG_1802
