Via del Boschetto, 1, 00184 Roma RM, Italy
Early fall is the ideal time to visit Rome. Locals return and reclaim the city, bringing a more authentic flavor and energy with them. It encourages a more symbiotic relationship between Romans and travelers.

Florence, Metropolitan City of Florence, Italy

I saw this exquisite chalk drawing of Leonardo da Vinci's Lady With An Ermine on the ground in one of the main plazas in Firenze. It started drizzling and I just had to take this photo before the rain washed it away!

Mueang Kao, Mueang Sukhothai District, Sukhothai, Thailand
There were a lot of things that made me stop in utter disbelief in Thailand, but the Buddha at Wat Si Chum in the Sukhothai Historical Park was probably one of the most goosebump inducing moments. The sheer size of the Buddha completely...

Exo Gonia 847 00, Greece
Yes, Vegas would do the trick, but a 12 days hopping between the Greek islands of Santorini, Folegandros, and Sifnos will be a matrimonial send-off you’ll actually want to remember. Cannonball into clear coves reachable only by boat, and...

South Georgia Island, SIQQ 1ZZ, South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands
I discovered these posing elephant seals on a trip to South Georgia Island in the Atlantic. There was a lot of noise and a lot of fighting on the beach as the males fiercely protected their harems. Amidst the furor, these three quickly approached...
