Some people assume that because I travel often I must be a nomad. I’m not. That doesn’t mean I don’t fantasize about it. Filmmaker Brandon Li is a nomad. He recently traveled to Guam to produce a short film. We talked a lot about nomadism, as Brandon has been on the road for two years now….

Even the most intrepid of us has succumbed to travel anxiety. I have and I love the unknown.

Watch the latest travel film all about my adventures in Cairns, Australia.
I’ve long wanted to make a Guam travel documentary, a signature piece to showcase the largely undocumented beauty of the island I’ve called home for the last five years. My dream came true when the wildly talented Brandon Li agreed to film it.

Thousands of terns raise their young on this tiny sand dune off the coast of Cairns, Australia. Speaking of passions, pictured below is Simon. Rather appropriately, he…

And yet, for a second time I am completely inspired by the sleepy mountain-top village of Kuranda in Tropical North Queensland, Australia.

When I got home I felt, well, a little deflated. All that adrenaline-pumping activity… then nothing. I realized I had the post-travel blues. I probably get this more than I’d like to admit, even when I am relieved to be back home, sleeping in my own bed, waking up to my schnuggly bunny (yes, I am 6). I felt so irritable (my poor husband), I had to do something. Here’s what worked:
