In the past few years, I have had the good fortune to extensively visit more than a dozen countries with plans in the works to greatly increase that number very soon.

I enjoy traveling, but not the way many may see the fantasized version of it. As much as I love the Eiffel Tower, I love even more the tiny Italian Restaurant I found in Paris at an unknown metro station run by the sweetest half-egyptian/half-italian lady who kisses my cheeks when I walk in the door and makes a killer tiramisu that warms even the coldest of souls. Sometimes, you gotta get off the beaten track to see the world.

I created Bindle & Board in order to share my travels with others through my photography. As the website evolves, I hope to add more tips, links, and even a “City Experiences” section to share with you the restaurants, bars, cafés and off-the-beaten-path places I found along the way! And of course, I will continually add more photosets as I travel!

As the footer of each page says, I’ve put a lot of work, heart, and soul into this website to share the fruits of my travels and labors. I have decided not to watermark every picture and disrupt the sleekness of the site, so please have some common decency and do not steal and/or use any of these pictures without permission. Your consideration and understanding are very much appreciated! 😀

If you have any advice or tips or are interested in licensing any of these pictures, please don’t hesitate to contact me!
