Central America

beyond the beaten path

With cerulean seas and verdant forests, magnificent Maya ruins and smoking volcanoes, Central America is like a tropical fairy tale – except all of it is real.

I was born with a passion for the map's blank spaces. Exploring them is where I feel most alive and am filled with the greatest sense of wonder and intrigue for the world around.As Nabokov once said..."nostalgia in reverse, the longing for yet another strange land, grew especially strong in spring.” Shall we go forth?

We travel, initially, to lose ourselves; and we travel, next to find ourselves. We travel to open our hearts and eyes and learn more about the world than our newspapers will accommodate.We travel to bring what little we can, in our ignorance and knowledge, to those parts of the globe whose riches are differently dispersed. And we travel, in essence, to become young fools again—to slow time down and get taken in, and fall in love once more.

I’ve been traveling to connect further with myself and nature for the past 2-3 years as a film maker and photographer.It has opened doors for me and expanded my horizons beyond measures. Travel has been a source of inspiration of ephemeral beauty I can capture and share with others. I have never done a group trip but have always desired to drive so. This sounds like an interesting opportunity to make it happen and share some experiences with my audience.
