I am inspired by nature and different cultures around the world. As we wander this awesome and magical wonderland, whether it be near or far, my hope is that we make a conscious effort to protect it and leave it better than we found it.

i hope to inspire you to travel

I love sharing my images and stories and hope to inspire you to travel, create, and capture your own beautiful experiences and memories.

“I travel around the world in a way that tries to open my mind and give me empathy and inspire me to come home and make this world a better place.”

– Rick Steves

“Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try to understand each other, we may even become friends.”

– Maya Angelou

“It seems that the more places I see and experience, the bigger I realize the world to be. The more I become aware of, the more I realize how relatively little I know of it, how many places I have still to go, how much more there is to learn."

– Anthony Bourdain

“You will never be completely at home again, because part of your heart always will be elsewhere. That is the price you pay for the richness of loving and knowing people in more than one place."

– Miriam Adeney

“Travel does what good novelists also do to the life of everyday, placing it like a picture in a frame or a gem in its setting, so that the intrinsic qualities are made more clear. Travel does this with the very stuff that everyday life is made of, giving to it the sharp contour and meaning of art."

– Freya Stark
