Just after the US embassy in Tunisia was attacked, I was cautiously strolling the souq (market). I saw this small portrait of a woman smoking, and fell in love with her. The shopkeeper noticed, and we negotiated a price. Then he moved the furniture around her, and I saw that I hadn't bought a small portrait at all - I'd bought a giant sword holder. 'I can't get this in a taxi and back to my hotel,' I told the shopkeeper. ‘I'll drive you!' he said. I wasn't comfortable riding in a stranger's (man's) car, and told him so. 'One minute!' he said, running out and locking the door behind him. I was trapped in his shop, and nervous. Ten minutes later, he walked in with his wife and small children. His wife said, 'you are very smart not to ride with strange men!' and smacked her husband. 'Stupid, stupid man!' We had tea. She said she doesn't resent Americans, even if she sometimes resents American policies (people are people, we wanna make a living, eat well, and raise our babies.) Their neighbors watched the children, and they both delivered my badass-woman-sword-holder to the hotel. Powerful women - securing swords and sales, worldwide. (The Tunisian woman has moved all over the world with me, has become my mascot and muse - alas, she’s going into storage come July, as I’m giving up my house.) #women #womeninbusiness #travel #travels #traveler #travelblogger #travelblog #travelstories #traveldeeper #igtravel #instatravel #powerful #female #wow #amazing #love #wanderlust #art #swordartonline #streetphotography #writersofinstagram #travelphotography #beauty #lady #world #artwork #girl #power #aroundtheworld

The abandoned ruins of Nisa, Turkmenistan, just next to the Iranian border. I went hiking out there, and found myself entirely isolated for miles on all sides. #traveling #traveldeeper #travel #travels #travelphotography #travelblog #hiking #desert #wow #amazing #love #roadtrip #mountains #wildlife #streetphotography #sand #solotravel #aroundtheworld #ig_captures #instalike #igtravel #instagood #instatravel #landscape #history #walk #ancient #turkmenistan
