I love beauty in all forms and find it in my travels, through the lens of my camera, and the faces of people I meet and work with. As a professional makeup artist, creating and seeking beauty are just part of every day life.
I find inspiration in traveling, especially to Italy. In addition to the natural beauty of the countryside and the man made artistry of Bernini, Michelangelo and Botticelli , I am inspired by the people of Italy – with their beautiful olive skin, glorious hair, and expressive brows.
To me traveling is not only about seeing the sights and monuments. It’s about connecting with the people, and understanding the culture, small exchanges in a foreign language, and the joy that comes from being understood – this is what truly inspires me to travel.
I’m definitely a city girl, but a few days in the country or at the beach can be nice too. I prefer slow travel – to get to know the people and understand the culture, wherever I am. I believe learning the language of the locals adds immeasurable joy to the travel experience.
Adventures of a Carry-on is a place I’ve created to fill with all the things I find beautiful and inspiring – art, architecture, culture, people, and of course, travel!
Besides stories and photographs from my trips to Italy, you will find local information on Dallas (my hometown), California, (my second home) and any place that catches my fancy. Since I’m self employed and I work to travel, but travel is not my work, I’m always looking for new ways to create a unique travel experience, and create content for this blog.
I think this quote from Emerson really says it all: “Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or find it.”
