Happy [Balinese] New Year!

Happy New Year! Yes, I know it’s March. No, I’m not losing my mind. Just recently, we celebrated the Balinese New Year known as Nyepi.

Temple at the Edge of the World

Sometimes the world just ends. Or it feels like it does. When you drive so far, you can’t even see what’s ahead. That’s exactly what we did recently. We drove out to Bali’s famed Uluwatu Temple, perched high on a cliff above the Indian Ocean. It’s epic. It’s breathtaking. It’s worthy of every single photo taken… Continue reading Temple at the Edge of the World

Hope for 2016

It’s a chance, for at least one time a year, for self-evaluation. I was really happy with my 2015. I loved looking back and reflecting with Instagram and blogging.… Continue reading Hope for 2016

Surf, Sand & Sayulita

Life in Sayulita, Mexico feels like an eternal vacation. The tiny beach village on Mexico's Pacific coast was really "discovered" in the late 1960's, as a newly constructed Mexican highway brought in wandering surfers. Even now in 2015, the town feels like it's been stuck in the 60's and the surfers still run the place.… Continue reading Surf, Sand & Sayulita

Sunsets, Beauty & Mystery

What it is about a beautiful sunset that stops us in our tracks? Why do we all grab our cameras when the sky lights up with bright pinks, deep oranges, fiery reds, and electric yellow? A good sunset is a mystery. We never know when it'll happen, or if we'll ever see it again. And… Continue reading Sunsets, Beauty & Mystery

Sunrise at Angkor Wat

Few landmarks are as recognizable and awe-inspiring at the Angkor temples in Siem Reap, Cambodia.  These incredible religious structures were built in the 12th century, originally as places of Hindu worship, but have since been adopted by the Buddhists of Cambodia & beyond. Angkor Wat is so much more than just one temple, but a… Continue reading Sunrise at Angkor Wat
