Sneak peak this evening of Sam Gelin's new @madehotels in Nomad. It's not quite open but with a seriously strong plant game and wood everywhere, it feels like my Pacific NW motherland and is already a favorite.
On @alxgrossmn and my very first date about 20 years ago, we planned on traveling the world together. He would take pictures and I would write stories. It took a couple of decades to realize this fantasy, but we finally did it. Last September we bareboat chartered a sailboat and cruised around Corsica and Sardinia. Exploring by boat without a captain or crew was the most magical way to travel. Check out our story in the August issue of @cntraveler out now or online (the link is in my bio). Thanks @pilar_guzman@yolandaedwards@wordmover for making it happen!
One of my favorite stories to edit was this piece about Japan's lost-in-time Ise-Shima Peninsula with its ancient Shinto shrines and amulet-wearing badass female divers. Beautifully written by @adamgraham and gorgeously photographed by @gentlandhyers (Link to the story in my bio).
