Hi Everyone!

This is just a teaser while we (myself and +Daria Musk  who is also in this video!!) work hard on actual footage (this was my b-roll stuff ;)). Hope you enjoy!!! It's one of my fav songs by Beirut covered by Florence Welch. It's that perfect stuck in throat beautiful feeling that travel gives you at its best moments.

We were just in France for the last 17 days working on our new project called Adventuress. Can't wait to share everything with you!

:)

(P.S. Highly recommend those islands!!!)

New York City - East Village. Wanted to give an enormous thanks to everyone for the kind comments and messages regarding my HUGE announcement video in my last post. For those who missed it, I launched a new travel venture with a brilliant musician and friend of mine +Daria Musk last night called Adventuress.

Daria and I will be traveling the world collecting sights and sounds and then remixing all of those wonderful things into their own art in the form of short-form videos, still photography, beautiful music, prose and so much more!

You can follow along on our site adventuress.world (we have maps, we will be posting sounds and photos, gifs, video).

You can also follow us on our socials too. (don't worry - we will be posting tons here!)

And when we get back from each journey, we will also be creating multimedia stories so you can experience the sights and sounds of each place all mapped out so you can even follow in our footsteps at some point! Wouldn't that be awesome?

Our first journey is France tomorrow for nearly three weeks. We will be traveling around the South of France, staying in a treehouse, staying in an astronomical observatory 9,000 feet up in the clouds in the Hautes Pyrénées among other incredible adventures.

Can't wait to take all of you along with us on this new journey of sight and sound around the world! :)

Paris

Heading to France today for nearly 3 weeks! I’ve got that butterflies-in-the-stomach-day-of-travel feeling which is one of the best feelings! Will be traveling around the South of France with Daria Musk recording sounds, making music, taking photos, film-making and having a lot of super fun adventures as Adventuress. (We will be snapping the whole journey too - find us there as travelinglens and dariamusk)

Some of the things we will be doing include staying in a treehouse on the grounds of a royal chateau, staying in an observatory overnight nearly 9000 feet above the clouds in the mountains star-gazing, among other awesome things! Check out my previous two posts for the explanation of our new travel venture!

This photo was taken one of the previous times I was in France in Paris (of course!!)(Shangri-La Hotel - from my room!). Fun, fun!

:)

Introduction
Photography found me a few years ago and I found, in turn, that photography and writing are two of my biggest passions in this world. 

I now spend an inordinate amount of time photographing the world and writing about it.

I couldn't be happier.

In fact, my book containing my photography of New York City along with my writing is being released this autumn. It's available for pre-sale on Amazon right now. All info and details about the book can be found here:

I don't know what I could possibly say that hasn't been said already regarding this beloved late-night East Village establishment. The fries are potato perfection: slightly crispy and golden on the outside and deliciously soft on the inside. Their wide array of sauces is unmatched and I am personally fond of the pesto, mango and wild mushroom sauces. Every time I am in Pommes Frites, a number of people are ordering the poutine which looks heavenly. The only negative I could possibly come up with regarding this spot is that the lines can get super long especially on the weekends. The East Village is home to many bars and fries seem to go well with a bit of inebriation making the wait a bit long at times.

This is a really low-key, understated Thai food restaurant. Their curries are incredible and they have curries I haven't seen listed in many other places like pumpkin curry. The prices are reasonable relative to the neighborhood and the vibe here is a relaxing one. The staff is also very attentive and they offer free-wifi which is always a plus.

Look, I think that anything I attempt to say about this place will never quite suffice because it's really *that* good. However, I will attempt to explain why I frequent this taco truck with wild abandon and why I have even told people on more than one occasion that their burrito is akin to a metaphorical food of the gods. This is authentic Mexican food at its finest. It's not laden with salt to make up for a lack of seasoning. It's not generic tex-mex. It's no frills, super tasty (they don't know the meaning of bland) and ultra fulfilling Mexican food done right. Let's talk about their burritos. For $7.50, you get a gargantuan burrito packed with cilantro, the tastiest rice of its kind around (if you opt for the vegetarian option which is *excellent*), your choice of meat, lettuce, queso fresco (fresh), onions, chopped tomatoes, guacamole and a nice tiny sprinkle of fresh grated cheese and sour cream. If you ask for it 'hot', they really pack a punch with the spice so unless you are ready to commit in that way, you may want to first try it without the super spicy stuff (which, by the way, brings the burrito to a whole other level of awesome if you love hot and spicy food). There was a 3 day period a few months ago when they weren't on their typical corner and I was in a serious panic. I can't imagine a world or the East Village without this beloved truck.

Whoa! I found out about this place from Yelp. Living close to it, I have passed it quite a few times since reading about it but haven't had the time to try it out until this fine evening. Knowing that it frequently is full of NYC cabbies (and seeing this every time I pass it) looking to have a great meal added to it's appeal for sure. I just ordered a bowl of rice with 2 sides (I chose #4 and #7 sides today) and oh my.... this is *seriously* the best Indian food I have had in NYC, hands down. Not only that but everything is obscenely cheap! I cannot believe I just paid what I paid for this! Also, the rows and rows of Bollywood videos lining the walls are great to browse through while waiting for your tasty meal to be heated up. You would never, ever imagine such gastronomic delights existed within since it's a fairly tiny and definitely under-the-radar sort of place. Will be going back for more!
