Postcard from a local weekend in Boston

I first fell in love with Boston when the autumn was a million shades of red and gold: my obsession with the Northeastern city deepened in the deep, clear blue of late winter-bordering-on-spring.   When I visited Boston in October, it was to catch up with my parents on the East Coast: we spent the […]

A weekend in Boston, via Instagram

One of the brilliant things about being back in the USA–even if I am on the opposite coast of my hometown–is being closer to my family and friends. Suddenly, I’m only a couple of time zones and a domestic flight away. So for the first time in my travels, my parents came to visit me. […]

Diversity is a word that’s thrown around a lot when people talk about the United States. It’s an incredible melting pot of cultures, a dazzling mix of landscapes.

The best of Paris, via Instagram

Paris is a city that’s endlessly photographed: the icons, the sunsets, the stately terraces and crumbling facades. It’s a city that inspires artists, writers, tourists; it’s the most-visited city in the world. For me, Paris is a city of crowded metros and unexpected details: a place where I feel at home and completely foreign. I […]

The best of Vietnam, via Instagram

It’s no secret that I fell in love with Vietnam: the food, the friendly people, the ever-changing landscape (and ever-reducing sunshine) as I crept from south to north on the back of a motorcycle, on a bus, on an overnight train. It’s a country full of lasting images, many that can’t be captured on camera: […]
