“Beautiful things happen when you bring people together over food,” said Hila. We all sat at a long table with vases of fresh flowers, Billie Holiday playing in the background, and the room was softly glowing with votive candles. Another perfect foodie night out in New York City. However, I wasn’t at the latest Manhattan […]

hike the lycian way by boat

I stared out at all of the boats and yachts on the vivid sapphire blue water and wondered – what the hell am I doing here on the rocky ground when I could be gently swaying on a boat? The Turkish Mediterranean coast is some of the most lovely in the world. Most people who […]

Finding the Adult Side of Orlando

October 14, 2013 16 Comments »

Is it possible to go to Orlando, stay near Disney and not go to a theme park? I was going to put this question to the test over the next 48 hrs. Orlando is not a normal place on my list of places to travel to – at least not as a solo child-less traveler. […]

24 Hours In Savannah as #GlobalTravelerSherry

The street was lit by a yellow glow of street lamps and moonlight. I had just done every bit of photography I could fit in before the sun went down in Savannah and now I was starved after a long travel day. I checked my map and made sure I was going in the right […]

Stanley Park bike path

Apparently, Mother Nature got the memo that I was going to be in Vancouver as she put on her best weather for me – for a day and a half. Then apparently she got tired of showing off and assumed her normal rainy self. But for that day and a half I soaked up the […]

“Don’t bring anything and don’t show up early unless you want to cook.” These were the only real rules I received after I booked my bookalokal Beer and Food group dinner in Brussels. Evelyn, our hostess, welcomed us at the door. My stomach woke up as I smelled the aroma of a big dinner cooking […]

Artisinal Chefs

I read the itinerary as if it were a theater program – the show was all about how 3 women and two tour guides were on a quest to learn about and taste artisanal recipes and local delicacies of Wallonia. They would wind around the little river towns and valleys stopping at farms along the […]

I laid out my new sleeping bag on the thick mat under the stars. It was muggy outside, but I still got into the down sleeping bag. Else I felt too exposed. I turned off my headlamp and said goodnight to my fellow travelers going through the same ritual nearby. As I lay there, I […]

Abandoned Medicine – Beelitz Heilstätten

May 3, 2013 11 Comments »

The trees limbs were heavy with freshly fallen snow providing a peaceful backdrop on this entirely eerie place. I had made my way outside of Berlin to the little community of Beelitz on this snowy Easter weekend to photograph Beelitz Heilstätten, a sanatorium for tuberculosis treatment methods in the early 20th century. In 1898 Beelitz […]

One of the best things about Berlin is the vast amount of ethnic food choices you have in the city. However – what about the German food – where is it hiding? I’m happy to tell you that I found it – Sauerbraten and spätzle! I was so happy I felt like polka dancing – […]
