When Alaska calls, you go, even if it's just for 48 hours.
YOSEMITE | CALIFORNIA
On our way to Yosemite, we got a call saying our Airbnb was no longer available. "Wildfire Evacuation". (Noone was hurt)
Paris | FRANCE
Ah, the city of love. And homeless men feeding pigeons. Paris is way more interesting if you can manage to look beyond it's clichés.
Miami | USA
To my own surprise, I spent a year living in, and actually enjoying, South Beach. It's not just palm trees, scantily clad women, and neon signs, after all.
Hanoi | VIETNAM
Oh Hanoi. A bustling oasis for anyone who appreciates people watching, and the nuanced beauty of everyday humans doing everyday human things.
New Orleans | USA
Beyond the jazz music and obvious tourism is a wonderful place full of the kind of real joy only struggle can bring.
Mt. Tremblant | CANADA
While most people would be put off by Canada’s harsh winters, being born in Russia gave me a love of snow and winter that very few people in this world ever acquire. Canada will always have my heart.
Barcelona | SPAIN
In the summer of 2014, I took two months off to travel Europe, and that journey started here, in Barthelona.
Venice | ITALY
I highly suspect I may have been Italian in my past life. No one loves wine, pizza, old architecture, and sinking cities this much.
Bruges | BELGIUM
Ever seen the movie “In Bruges”? It singlehandedly prompted this trip, and Bruges did not disappoint.
Halong Bay | VIETNAM
Halong Bay is the epitome of a place that simply doesn't feel real; a parallel universe where generations of families living in floating homes and fish their every meal among limestone islands topped with rainforests.
Zermatt | SWITZERLAND
I'm not going to lie; I'm not much of a hiker. Unless I'm in the Swiss Alps, of course. You better believe this place will turn anyone into a fitness junkie just to get a glimpse of that view.
Hue | VIETNAM
Infinity flip-flops for sale in a textile market in Hue, Vietnam.
Nice | FRANCE
One summer not too long ago, I spent a month living in Nice. 10% because I didn't want to forget my French. 90% because it's the French Rivera, duh.
NICE, FR | Terror Attack Memorial
Thousands of candles line Nices' main promenade as a tribute to the fallen victims of the 2016 terror attack.
Haifa | ISRAEL
The red hair and green eyes understandably throws a few people off when I tell them I'm Jewish, but hey, life is full of wonderful surprises. Like Israel.
Galapagos | EQUATOR
If you like watching Planet Earth, this is living it. Somehow my own inner dialogue turned into David Attenborough on this particular trip.
Prague | Czech Republic
Prague is full of intersections. Where Gothic meets modern. Metropolitan meets medieval. Where vices meet virtues. Where age meets youth.
