If I could offer advice to anyone traveling to Cusco, it would be to book a one-way ticket. I lost count of how many locals we met that were once just backpacking through, now working at Cusco cafes and teaching yoga classes in San Blas. The place has a…

#Italy  
Italy. What's not to love, really? Save for the intolerable neighbors next door, who send me spinning into fits of schizophrenia every time I come home. In a house made of marble and stone, the shr...

I tend to get strange looks when I profess my love for solo travel. Stranger still are the puzzled looks inspired when I confess my appetite for hiking alone. Safety and sense is all well and good,...

#Peru   #Lima  
We slept through breakfast, and I was sleepy still when I left a $9 tip for my $1.50 coffee. I had a pocket full of Peruvian coins, and dropped 25 soles into the jar before doing the math. One loft...

Fog. There was only fog. Our guide Americo pointed into the white abyss and said, “familia…there, through the fog, is Huayna Picchu and the best view of Machu Picchu.” We squinted, each of us, willing our eyes to see beyond the white wall of cloud. We had…

Hourglass

An impressive cloud formation passes over the Mesquite sand dunes in Death Valley National Park. I've been lucky to get some pretty interesting conditions the few times I've been to this area. One of my favorite things I've done in the wilderness, is to be comfortably settled into the nice soft sand, watching weather move through the valley. Such a cool place.

Il bel far niente. The simple pleasure of doing nothing. Capri, Italy. Sans terre, without land or a home, which, therefore, in the good sense, will mean, having no particular home, but equally at ...

Story
Tagline
To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all. - Oscar Wilde
Introduction
I love travel, photography, videography, music, and all things outdoors. The open road is where I feel most at home, regardless of where I've been or where I'm going. I shoot with a Canon 7D and I love chocolate.
Bragging rights
34 countries, 38 states and counting. Also, I drive like an Italian.
