California Dreaming

California Dreaming
I am in love. You know the feeling, that I’m-so-excited-to-be-alive/ butterflies-in-my-stomach/ nothing-can-get-me-down sensation. However, this high is not for a person, but a place. California’s Central Coast is better than being a single woman landing in Rome if you enjoy breath-taking...

The Turkey Trek

The Turkey Trek
Rather than wax poetic about our incredible two-day “Same Same” hiking adventure near Luang Prubang, Laos, I’ll let these photos speak (mostly) for themselves. For the record, the “Kids with Turkeys” shots are some my favorites from the trip! The Laos Countryside… Laos...

Independence Day on El Camino Inca

Independence Day on El Camino Inca
After months spent planning our expedition to Peru for the ultimate outdoor adventure-a four-day, 26-mile climb through the Andes Mountains to the “Lost” city of Machu Picchu-we very nearly didn’t make it to the Inca Trail at all. Just days before we were supposed to lace up our hiking...
