Lisbon, Portugal

Lisbon is stunning! The city is covered with patterned tiles and endless stairsteps. But we survived the hills and stairsteps of Lisbon during our 6 day visit.

Praia do Barril – Portugal

Praia do Barril is one of the beaches in Tavira. The joyful journey to Barril starts with a short ride on a magical toy-like beach train and ends at a spectacular anchor graveyard of imaginary shipwrecks.

Tavira – Portugal

Tavira, a beach town in the Eastern Algarve, is the perfect mix of traditional heritage and modern comfort. We stayed a few days to take in Tavira’s village charm.

Salvation Mountain

Leonard Knight spent 28 years building, Salvation Mountain, a self-funded tribute to god using adobe clay, hay and donated paint. Salvation Mountain is proof positive that love and faith – some may even say, madness – compels people to do wonderful and inspiring things. Salvation Mountain is the determined life work of one visionary man.

Salton City – Salton Sea

Salton City, once a lakeside resort town in the Salton Sea, is now sparsely populated and desolate. The yacht club, seemingly burned down in a fire, is a modern ruin of concrete rubble and topless burnt palm trees. Strikingly, however, the harsh washed out white beach set against the stark blue sea creates a moody, eerily beautiful scene.

For the past few months, I’ve been busy working on branding World Reclaimed – a home & garden goods from the talented duo Caitlin & Owen of Aloe Designs. It’s been their dream to start up their own online shop with goods Owen makes from reclaimed wood.

Sancti Spiritus, Cuba

Sancti Spiritus city is one of the best preserved cities in the Caribbean. We walked around and peeked into shops, peoples homes and just watched people hang out in the town’s main square. Unlike a tourist town, It’s a living city where you can get a glimpse of daily Cuban life.
