Photo Essay: Impressions from Luxembourg City

To be honest, I had no real reason to go to Luxembourg.

10 Things that Surprised Me about Jordan

Looking back, I had no idea what Jordan was going to be like before I boarded my flight.

Photo Essay: The Best of March 2015

March somehow went by so quickly that I can barely believe it’s been four weeks since wrote my February round-up. But busy months always pass quickly, and March definitely was a busy month: From work obligations, to networking at the world’s biggest travel trade fair, to photo shoots, to a trip to Italy with my mom, […]
