Japan For Foodies

A year ago this week, I landed in Tokyo, bewildered and nervous about what was soon to be one of the greatest travel adventures of my life. The country delivered way more than I even could have expected and I dream of getting back there one day. My favorite discovery was the art, beauty, and diversity of Japanese food. If […]

A Drive Through Big Sur

A Drive Through Big Sur

When my friend Cathy and I decided to take a weekend trip down to California’s Central Coast, there was no question which way we would go–the long way down Highway 1 through Big Sur. California’s Highway 1 is the state’s most famous drive, and one of the most famous road trip routes in the world. The stretch […]

5 Lessons I Learned From Driving In Italy

Renting a car in Italy

I started this blog to protect and share my […]

Shiogama, in Northern Japan’s Miyagi Prefecture, is one of the most important fishing ports and one of the busiest fish processing centers in the country. While Tokyo’s Tsukiji Market is famous for […]

The Things We Do

Photographers are Insane

I’m spending my blog time this week editing photos, including  those from a few recent weekend trips. First, and most challenging to work through (because we took over 1,000 shots!), was the New Year’s weekend trip we took to Southern New Mexico’s Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Reserve. Photography is serious business on Kevin’s side of the family. While I consider myself […]
