From the anniversary series: year four. Amsterdam! The museums, the flowers, the bikes, the canals! I loved it so much. I made Ian get to the @rijksmuseum before they opened so we could see Rembrandt’s Night Watch before the masses descended. It’s also where my obsession with Dutch still life became extreme.

A peek behind the curtain.
Hey there. I posted a story. Not only is it a story - but it’s also - a story. An Instagram Story. I’m been sitting on this one for a while now but I’m trying a new thing called being open and honest. This was, at one time, part of an essay submission for the World Nomads Travel Photography Scholarship. Prior to a second pass on the editing process, I misread ‘1500 characters’ as ‘1500 words.’ By that time, this was already written and so now - here we are. In that capacity, on photography alone, I’m beat. On storytelling - bring it on. This was hard for me to write. I pride myself on operating at full steam ahead. All the time. Last year, I took a bit of a gut punch in that capacity. If you want to find out why, give it a look. Sometimes things aren’t always how they seem. Which brings me to my next point. If you’re reading this, and tall tale sounds like an apology - signed, sealed and delivered - directly to you, you’re probably right. So, to cut through the confusion. I’m sorry. I fall on my face just like everyone else once in a while and I’m still trying to regain my balance. Not all of these photos were taken by me. The dark, brooding portraits of me, close up and personal were taken by my talented father-in-law @paulrice and the one of me writing was Thomas Riedl. So, with no further ado, tap my face to load this baby up. Oh, and by the way, it’s long form. Not - super long - but, you will have to read. Thanks for the time.
The absolutely stunning and mind boggling 'Chand Baori" in Bundu Rajasthan.. Baoris were built to provide for water in the hot summer months in the desert state of Rajasthan. The size and scale of this one amazed me ..
As much as that roll on my back bothers me, I'm trying not to be ashamed of it. There's more than 7 billion people living in this world, there should be room for more than one body type to be socially acceptable. I should be good enougb the way I am. And I am.

Cliche travel couple photo 😂. If anyone visits star fish beach on Bocas Del toro then you should totally do the walk there instead of catching the boat. Even though the boat is cheap, there’s a tonne of amazing views and cute little beaches like this one along the way, which in my opinion were much more beautiful then the star fish beach itself! I love finding hidden 💎s along the way. What’s the best unexpected gem you’ve found?
Utrecht: after our amsterdam/noordwijk stay sophie and i moved onto utrecht! it was a gorgeous city, very green also! we were surprised to see street performers around as we wandered through! here we took our time and although we only had one night here we saw a lot! i recommend staying here at least one night and wander without a plan through the city! (also had a great burrito here!)
Mayantuyaku is the legendary boiling river in the Amazon of Peru. The water is so hot any animal that accidentally ventures in is cooked alive instantly. This video shows the steam rising from the river! This is in the Peruvian region of huanuco and is a very special place, the only of its kind in the world. Very few tourists venture here but if you feel adventurous enough you can. At the end of the river it cools down just enough to take a 10 minute dip and bathe in one of mother natures true wonders.
