Chambery, France: Cities of the French Alps

Chambery is in the middle of the French Alps and is the capital of Savoie (Savoy for you English speakers). It's a pretty town, although admittedly, a little too quiet and boring for my taste after 26 years of living in Los Angeles. But it is a lovely city with lots of charm and history. For instance, it was the home of the Shroud of Turin for many years. I bet you didn't know that! Here are some photos of this pretty town. By the way, the ceiling of this church is actually Trompe L'oeil painting. It looks like the real thing but it isn't. Chambery is the home of the largest collection of Trompe L'oeil painting in Europe. You can find it all over the streets too.

Dingle Peninsula: Staying at a Sheep Farm

Just outside of Dingle is a sheep farm that occasionally rents out an ensuite room in their house that includes a huge Irish breakfast. The owners are American and Irish. The best part for me was that I got to bottle feed the orphaned lambs every morning. What a joy that was! Here are some photos of our stay and the surrounding area of the farm.

Affordable Professional Non-Profit Grant Writing Services by Expert with 30+ Years of Experience

If you follow this photo blog you already know that we are photographers and videographers and that I run a French Alps and Provence Tour company with my British partner. 

But you may not know that I am also a professional grant writer for non-profit agencies in the United States. Before moving to France part-time, I had a very successful and thriving grant writing consulting business in Los Angeles. Since I wanted to dedicate more time to family, travels, and creative pursuits (like this blog), I downsized my consulting business and now only choose nonprofits and causes that I am most passionate about. As a result, I have literally cut my normal rates to about 1/3 of what they were in Los Angeles. I only take 3 - 4 nonprofits at a time so I can focus on them and give them my full attention. 

I am also a Nonprofit Coach. I work independently and also through DonorPath. 

If you are interested in hiring a grant writer and nonprofit expert with 30+ years of experience at a ridiculously low rate, please contact me on my website or comment on this post with contact information:
