7 Places that prove France is more incredible than you Imagined

•••
You could spend several lifetimes in France roaming the streets of Paris eating baguettes, meandering through the coastal villages of Normandy, exploring the tiny towns with rustic architecture and Chateau-filled hills, and buying 2 euro bottles of wine for dinner every night. With a square mileage smaller than the state of Texas, France sure packs a cult[...]

20 Things To Go Do By Yourself

•••
There is something to be said for doing things alone, for forging your own path and moving through life to the beat of your own drum. It is a trait we admire in solo adventurers like Cheryl Sayed in 'Wild', or the brave young man Christopher McCandless as he enters the woods never to return home again in 'Into the Wild.' There is something alluring and magne[...]

2016, you sucked balls! I can't even pinpoint exactly what it was apart from the political and social issues, votes and decisions that left an incredibly bitter aftertaste. I started the year in a hut in the mountains in Norway, traveled to seven different countries (and three times to Austria, weird) and was involved in several really cool photography and j[...]

The politics of travel: a worthy discussion?

•••

More and more people seem to travel to get to the same places that others have seen before, in order to take the very same pictures and recreate their experiences. They try to plan all the details of their trips. They ask for restaurants, hotels, perfect photo spots etc. – everything should be highly recom[...]
