Wishing You All An Amazing 2013 Filled With Awesome Experiences

Nine months ago, we launched Paupers Without Travel as a platform to express the joy experienced by our souls every time we touched a place new or familiar, tasted foods known and unknown and discovered deals that would help us fund one more trip without breaking the bank.  Did we expect to get a few readers?  We’d be lying if we said no.  But what we did not anticipate is the warmth, love and support shown by so many of you in liking and commenting on our posts and more importantly, sharing your journeys and experiences.

We were tickled pink when we got an email from WordPress last night telling us that  5,000 people attended the Aspen Food and Wine Festival. This blog had about 32,000 views in 2012. If each view were a foodie, this blog would power 6 festivals….

Ok, so to kick off the New Year, here is a tribute to some of the people we were blessed to see and learn from around the world.

Jardim Botanico, Rio – Nature’s Beauty in Pictures

These pictures  were taken during a spring trip to Rio.  We spent several hours at this oasis in the heart of Rio.  You can also read about visiting at http://pauperswithouttravel.com/2012/07/08/jardim-botanico-a-tranquil-haven-in-rio/

A beautiful fountain adds to the tranquility
A bench beckons you to relax
Soothing waterfalls create inviting nooks
The bright flowers enliven the space
One of a zillion flowers that we saw
A master weaver displays his wares
Someone plays hide and seek
Tree trunks add to the texture and depth
And Christ the Redeemer adds the ultimate grace to what we see
