Life in Cartagena had been in a perpetual forward motion long before I ever took my first plane flight. When I was inserted into Cartagena on March 4, 2017, the city did not stop to welcome me. It honked, blazed, sizzled, and hawked. The city had its own pulse, and through its veins we began […]Read more "Feeling Alive, Staying Alive"

But black and white photographs require a certain composition that we wanted to experiment with. We challenged ourselves to shoot only black and white photos in Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), the capital of Vietnam. […]Read more "HCMC B/W"
Today we wrap on three months traveling through South East Asia with 29 more days and three countries to go. It’s time to recalibrate. When the luster of arriving in a new city wears away, it causes major distress within me. What happens when the novelty of novelty fades? This is a question that continues […]Read more "Day 88"
Bia Hoi. A truly unique beer experience. They even named an intersection after it. Bia Hoi corner is the stuff of college fairytales.

As the sun sinks, the intersection fills up with backpackers, […]Read more "Booze Review: Bia Hoi"
