One Roll

I shot considerably less 35mm in India than I did 120mm. A roll of 35 could meander the streets with shots from a walk here or there and would often finish, forgetting where it started. When I’d finally sent it to be developed and it eventually made it’s way back to the USA, I’d often forgotten what was on it at all. Months later, small gifts would unravel in my inbox filled with frames of friendly faces and bright temple corners. Somehow in the chaos of our move back home... Read The Rest →

Palm Beach

During our move back home this November, we spent a month in South Florida. It is where Paul grew up and where we met when I’d moved across the country for a change of scenery in my early twenties (A foreshadowing of many changes of scenery and longings for exploration, I now see). We met working in a restaurant in Jupiter in my final year of design school. We married in a little chapel on Jupiter Island and left to see the world after I’d lived in Jupiter for about ten years and... Read The Rest →

Top Ten Books to Read in India

  With sometimes just a few hours or days to immerse yourself in a new culture or in a new city, it feels impossible to get caught up in the story of a place, but I’ve found, it happens to be just the perfect recipe for a well rounded travel experience.

Kerala Travel Guide Part Three // Purity

  Day three of our weekend escape to Kerala finished right here as our private houseboat slipped slowly back into the dock at the Purity resort and spa. With an entire day ahead of us to relax before our evening flight from Kochi back to Chennai, we were greeted by a staff member clad in delicately pleated, rose-colored sari. We followed her swishing along stepping stones set into lush grass to our  deluxe cabana for the day. Surrounded on three sides by a veranda overlooking the gardens of the resort... Read The Rest →

The Taj Mahal // A Family Travel Diary

  These are my favorite people to discover the world with.  For every bit of awe and wonder that looking upon the Taj Mahal and exploring India provides me in my 30’s, I have three little afterburners for my own initial explosion of excitement. Traveling the world with little kids isn’t always easy, but these three have been raised on “short flights” and “long flights” here and there around the world. They love a good adventure and anything we are excited about they match with equal enthusiasm, often pulling out... Read The Rest →
