Self portrait, Rothenburg ob der Tauber, Germany
I once told my dad that the best thing he taught me was how to read a map. Growing up, I spent the summers in the back seat of the family car with a box of Cheerios in one hand, a jar of Tang in the other, and my eyes glued to the window as the landscape passed by. Our home was a trusty Starcraft pop-up trailer and we spent weeks in our national parks and many miles on the trails.
For the past 20 years I’ve worked as a freelance photographer, shooting for national magazines, tourism offices and Fortune 500 companies. I’ve been to 48 states and thirty-some countries. Ask me to tell you my favorite, and I’m stumped. It’s all good. From a $3 / night hotel in Honduras to a Parisian room with a view, I am happiest when I am on the road…meeting new people and exploring new places.
If you’ve seen it all and done it all, this blog’s not for you. If you check off items on your bucket list and run off to the next one, slow down. Life is about the journey…and you can find adventure and wonder no matter where you are.
Open your eyes wide and ramble around. You’ll be amazed at what you find.
