Though my life resembles a nonstop vacation, it’s not very often that I simply take a trip for the sake of taking a trip. Travel is always thrilling for me, but it’s also my job, so I was grateful for the chance to take a few days off and explore Mexico City, sans internet or…

Shetland may just be the most photogenic corner of Britain–the weather is moody and dramatic and the light (if it’s there) is always surprising and cinematic. Though I travel with several different cameras, it’s my phone I grab first–always. Phones may never compete with DSLR for clarity, stabilityf and megapixels, but I find phone pics…

It’s impossible to walk swiftly in Ålesund—there is simply too much to see. This is a city of color, shape and detail, and taking your time pays off in big ways. Spread across seven islands on the west coast of Norway, this little fishing town of 40,000 is perhaps the prettiest in the country. In…

I’ve spent the night in four different countries this week. I went diving on Mexico’s coral reef, was interviewed on French-Canadian television, did laundry in Washington, D.C., and then flew to Buenos Aires for last night’s marvelous dinner at La Cabrera.

I travel with many cameras, but find more and more often that it’s my phone that I use to capture whatever experience I’m having–it’s small, quick, easy and unobtrusive. And so after arriving in Hiroshima, I spent one day wandering through this infamous city, iPhone in hand. As an American visitor, I couldn’t help feeling…

I travel with several different cameras but it’s my phone that I always have in hand. While I sent hundreds of photos out into the social media nebula, the following images are a selection of my favorite phone memories from my travels in Québec.

You can’t visit Ontario and not visit Niagara Falls. Because these are the most powerful waterfalls in all of North America and they are too big, too beautiful and too wondrous to pass up, especially if you can get a helicopter ride to fly over them.

Landing on earth’s remotest inhabited island stands out as a travel highlight. Spending just one day there was pure torture. But such is life and travel–we dream, we go, we arrive, we leave, we remember. Each and every one of us travels differently. We search for the experience that’s best for us. Some of us…
