When did loving America stop being cool? One of my most frustrating moments traveling abroad is when I find myself at a hostel, sitting with a few Americans and people of other nationalities. Somehow, the conversation always turns to America. One person will start bashing our foreign policy, our obsession with Wal-Mart, or our disdain […]
In honor of Father’s Day, I thought I would skip my normal travel photo and post a photo of my parents and me. This is the most recent one I have – from St. Patrick’s Day 2012 in Saratoga Springs, NY. (Sorry to disappoint, but I don’t, unfortch, wear shamrock head boppers on a regular […]
The wind is so strong it’s almost blowing me over. The water is so icy that it could give me hypothermia in a matter of minutes. Apparently, San Francisco has not gotten the memo that it is a part of sunny California. I look out over the blue water to the city skyline. It looks […]

If you haven’t noticed it by now, I’m kind of an animal freak. I am that annoying person that points out every dog ever and brings home wounded, flea-infested magpies named Gordon only to cry when they die two days later. (Yup, that happened. Last year.) Like many little girls, my childhood days were spent […]

That’s my mission. I learned the great art of jumpy pictures from one of my best friends, Elisabeth, and have since used it to spice up my travel photos (and life in general). I hope you’ll follow and support me on my mission to take a perfect jumpy pic on every continent. So far, I […]
