Watch My Most Epic Landscape Video Yet

I made this landscape video months ago as an entry for National Geographic’s Assignment Explorer contest. Sadly, I was not a finalist, but I’m sharing the video because it contains previously unreleased footage from some of the most epic landscapes I’ve seen. The clip from the footage contains shots that were taken from many of…

My 15 Favorite Travel Experiences

My 15 Favorite Travel Experiences

I didn’t visit every destination on my 2015 bucket list this year, but that’s just fine. I’m more interested in quality travel than in quantity. This is perhaps why I don’t travel full-time. I grounded myself for six months (!) to work on my first documentary film. I’m glad to report I’m almost done… And…

BLUE LAGOON, ICELAND

Getting Steamy at Blue Lagoon, Iceland

Pretty much the most touristy thing you can do in Iceland, Blue Lagoon is still a must-experience stop. The lagoon is tucked into a part of town that looks positively post-Apocalyptic with piles of black volcanic rubble. The drive out there is a bit spooky, but you didn’t come to Iceland to see anything banal,…

3 Reasons to Get Off the Beaten Path in Iceland (PHOTOS)

I always considered myself a city girl at heart, but a few years ago that changed. Now what I crave more than anything else is to get off the beaten path. I don’t like to share elbow room with other tourists. I don’t ever need to see another McDonald’s again. I don’t care if I’m within cell phone range.

The Sound of Iceland (VIDEO)

What does the Land of Fire and Ice sound like? Listen. This travel film was shot over 9 days in a campervan exploring geothermal hotspots, mystic mountains, and half-frozen waterfalls in Iceland.

Everything You Need to Know About a Campervan Roadtrip in Iceland

I find campervans charming. Being totally free to wander a place without worrying about hotel reservations makes the campervan an ideal way to explore Iceland. The Hubs and I rented a double-decker in New Zealand, enjoying the same freedom. All the romance of having your bed on wheels doesn’t mean there’s no work. I went to Iceland for…

Jokusarlon Glacier Lagoon, Iceland

Ethereal Beauty: Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon, Iceland (PHOTOS)

When you think of Iceland, is this what you picture? If so, you wouldn’t be wrong as Iceland is home to glaciers galore, including Iceland’s largest ice cap, Vatnajökull. One of the 30 places it empties is Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon. As with most natural sites in Iceland, pictures just don’t do justice to the majestic lagoon. Where the…

Iceland's Iconic Reynisfjara in Iceland's Most Charming Town

Iceland’s Iconic Reynisfjara and Its Most Charming Town (PHOTOS)

Vík is a town that is both sleepy and dramatic. Because it is Iceland’s wettest place, the weather changes from freezing rain to sun and rainbows in a matter of minutes. The mountainous town is home to some of Iceland’s most iconic natural features. Recalling Giant’s Causeway in Ireland, the basalt columns known as Reynisfjara are…
