Vacation Rental of the Week: Clink Wharf in London

October 7, 2015 • By

      It’s Wednesday, so it’s time for our Stylish Vacation Rental of the Week!

This week I discovered a luxury retreat in London Bridge, and I can’t wait for you to see it.

If you’re planning a trip to London, consider this house for your holiday home stay.  It’s stylish, sophisticated and located near South Bank, which is home to the Tate Modern and the National Theatre. Plus the home itself is full of industrial chic furnishings and epic views.

Take Flight for the Fight – Delta Breast Cancer Awareness

October 2, 2015 • By

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

I got into a long conversation about breast cancer with some Delta Airlines flight attendants, not long ago. I was on a flight from Atlanta to Las Vegas.

Why did cancer come up?

I was traveling with a friend who had been recently diagnosed with a different form of the Big C.

Day of the Dead Festival

Day of the Dead festival in San Antonio, Texas

San Antonio is an excellent getaway in October or November. Fall temperatures have finally drifted out of the triple-digit range and the locals are ready to whoop it up outside: the party lineup includes Oktoberfest, the post-Halloween Day of the Dead and the International Accordion Festival.

(I know, right?)

My Favorite Things: Portraits of Statues

September 28, 2015 • By

Do you start to notice themes when you look over your travel photos?

I have a huge collection of “portraits” of statues.

Even through the lens, I realize that I love to shoot sculpture in the same way that I like to take photos of models.  Sometimes I even feel myself having an internal discussion with them.  You know what I mean, “…good, good, a bit more to the left, yes. Perfect…”
