There are always at least one moment in a trip that crystalize why I love to travel. The Amsterdam bar cat represents one of those moments. I was at the tail end of a month long trip to Europe and I was meeting my daughter and her boyfriend, Jonathan, in Amsterdam for a few days. While waiting for them to arrive, I get a message from Jonathan, “Strange Days is on the jukebox, where are you?” I hooked it down to the bar in Red Light District, and while I missed hearing one of my fav Doors songs, I did get to spend the night drinking Belgium beer, listening to great music, chatting with the coolest Hungarian bartender and sharing stories of recent travels with two of my fav people in the world.
Here’s the coolest cat in Amsterdam:

Incredible food, awesome wine for $4 a bottle and hiking on trails through 500 year old vineyards…did I mention awesome wine?
The Cinque Terre was the perfect stop between Paris and Rome. After the day trippers vacate when the last train leaves in the afternoon, Vernazza feels much like I’d guess it did thirty years ago.
I’m really looking forward to a return trip.

Hiking along Cibola Creek, a few miles south of Ft Sumner, NM.
Unfortunately, a lot of the land in that part of the state is private and is posted…and it’s not uncommon for
land owners to fence off access to land that is actually public land. But with just a little research it’s easy to find
access to public land.

Tough to beat a NM sky!
I shot this just outside of Logan, NM. I was driving over a bridge and the reflection caught my eye…and I had to stop
Image was shot with the Fuji X100s. Perhaps, my fav camera ever. I spent a month in Europe a few months ago
with just the X100s and while there were a few times I was wishing I had a wider or longer lens, it just made me work
the scene a little more to get what I wanted.
