This week’s #FriFotos theme on Twitter is Harbors! I’ve always been drawn to the water, and harbors are particularly alluring since they often appear unexpectedly in the midst of urban activity. Here are some of my favorites from my various travels…
I’ve always loved photographing windows. The structure, the architecture… the promise of what view lies outside it. Something about them always has enticed me to whip out my camera and snap a quick shot. And sometimes, it isn’t even the actual window itself, per se, but the way a reflection bounces off of the glassy surface […]
This week, PackedSuitcase.com reached 100 posts. Hurray! It’s a huge milestone and I’ve been planning a celebration of sorts to look back at a few of my favorite posts. Serendipitously, Katie at Tripbase has recently initiated a fun challenge called My 7 Links. The gist is that nominated bloggers pick out worthy posts from our archives […]
Originally posted on Go! Girl Guides on May 17, 2011. When you plan a trip, you never expect that you may have to spend time in a place that turns out to be less than mind-blowing. After all, to travel is to explore, to immerse yourself in another culture and taking the good right alongside […]
I went to Chile’s Torres del Paine National Park in October 2009. It was right before the tourist season started, so I practically had the park to myself. This photo of the Cuernos del Paine (the “Horns”) was taken on the shores of Lake Pehoe. I was barely able to stand upright due to the intense wind, […]
When planning a trip do you secretly yearn for exotic locales but always seem to end up on the same old vacation? This summer, don’t spend another week sprawled out on the beach. With a proliferation of options and the recent unveiling of National Geographic Adventures, there’s never been a better time to head out […]
With so much of the US under a blanket of snow I couldn’t resist… Somewhere on the Beagle Channel, all the way down at the southernmost tip of South America, are an outcropping of little islands filled with seals. On this day towards the end of October, snow squalls popped up and created […]
At long last, here is the Torres del Paine “Top 5” video that I created for the Travel Channel. I wrote, shot, edited and narrated this project, and being able to travel down to Patagonia was an amazing experience! While watching this video I just want you to imagine me with a little camera and […]
See my entire 55 Places bucket list here. When I finally got to Torres del Paine National Park in Chile, the first place I headed was Grey Lake, home to magnificent icebergs and the Grey Glacier. I think “chill” would be the operative word with this particular adventure.
The journey to complete my 55 Places bucket list continues… October 16, 2009 at 8:19 am, I had my first glance of South America from my Delta Airlines window seat. I was happy and relaxed, because (lucky me) I didn’t have anyone sitting next to me on the long overnight flight. Chile’s brown, rolling mountains […]
Well, after nearly 24 hours of traveling, I’m back home, safe and sound! The flights home were much less dramatic than the ones there, which is good, although my luggage is broken! But, at least it’s here , so I’m thankful for that. 🙂 I’ll be posting some of my favorite pictures over the next […]
