To each his or her own swimming hole 💦  Soaking up the last of California’s summer with all my friends before heading off to Alaska in 2 days!

This was my third time in Athens, and my first time making it up to the v old ruins of the Acropolis. 🐈 in the second photo is casually napping on a 2000+ year old front-row marble seat in the Theatre of Dionysus, which used to be reserved for only the most special people.  #leicam6

Traveling by sea and exploring by air — the only reason to ever step on land is to run into a bakery for fresh baklava 😋 #seasouldiary ⛵️

At sea in Greece with my #seasouldiary friends last month. I love sailing because it’s like traveling around in a campervan of the sea! ⛵️ #35mm #leicam6

Methana, Greece 🇬🇷. The name Methana comes from “methane”, which along with hydrogen sulfide (the stinky egg smelling stuff that’s in hot springs), is present in the volcanic peninsula’s thermal spring water. At this swimming area the milky white water from the springs mixes with sea water to create this vibrant, opaque turquoise water 💎.

Exactly one year ago I was here.  A helicopter ride over Ilulissat’s fjord of ice brought me to the edge of the glacier that (very likely) released the iceberg that sank the Titanic.  Just 15 years ago this barren mound of dust and rocks where I am standing was covered by ice. In the second shot I tried to fly my drone off into the distance to reveal the glacier I am standing before, but several kilometers away only revealed more and more dust. This is the location where the massive calving event in the film “Chasing Ice” took place, and these pods have since been set up to monitor the rapid recession of this glacier.  I am so drawn to see the world’s ice, and very saddened to witness and know what a poor job we are doing of keeping it frozen.

If I was to reveal in this shot the top of the mountains I am standing at the base of, I would have had to fly up another 6,000 feet. This valley was my destination after a 2,700 elevation gain hike up from the bottom of Lauterbrunnen Valley (you can see some of the many sights along my hike on my profile in my Switzerland stories highlights). Spectacular as this place is, this valley which was once a glacier field is looking increasing like a rock field as Switzerland’s glaciers are rapidly melting 😢. Music: Kara-Lis Coverdale

My next post will be a drone shot, I promise.  The peak barely poking out from the clouds on the left is Jungfrau. The highest train station in Europe is located underground below the smaller rocky peak on the right, on top of which sits the Sphinx Observatory.  The decks of the observatory were packed with people elbowing me out of their way to take selfies. It’s funny how all it takes is a little physical effort to have an even better view all to myself.  #35mm #leicam6

At this point I’ve written and rewritten and deleted maybe 10 or 12 captions for this image. I started one or two about how “Switzerland is heaven” or something corny and cliché. I wrote one trying to describe how this place sounded and smelled. I wrote several about how Switzerland was too peaceful to fly a drone, how I didn’t want to disturb anyone or anything with the sound of my drone. I wrote a few about all of the “feels” this place gives me (except I wouldn’t actually use the word “feels”). Then I wrote one about how this is one of my favorite places I’ve ever been, that I want to go back to and then I thought maybe I’ll ask people what their favorite places they want to go back to are (but I didn’t want to come off as trying to fish for comments). I wrote one about how I didn’t think I needed to go to Switzerland because I had already technically been there and how I was stupid for thinking about travel in terms of a to-do list of countries. I wrote one about how I wish I could write better captions. I wrote a real heavy one about how travel photos on social media can be inspiring but how they too often make you feel jealous. I give up, this photo can have no caption or all of the captions. It was shot on a Leica M6 I borrowed for the trip and fell in love with along the way (I never wanted to be a Leica person, but now I get it).

When I was a kid, my favorite thing was flying in planes. I didn’t get to do it very often, but the times that I did were the highlight of my young life. 
As an adult I sometimes experience mild anxiety while flying (I still don’t handle turbulence so well). But when I’m looking out the window at the world from 35,000 feet, I’m so very much that same kid. It’s still the coolest thing, and I’m going to take pictures every time.
