A Rocky Mountain Roadtrip with Millican

“Originally curated to connect our global community, the Travelling Bag is passed from traveler to traveler, encouraging each new owner to delve deeper into the place they’re exploring, to focus on traveling against the norm and creating meaningful connections with the places they visit. 

For its next journey, the Travelling Bag joins outdoor-lifestyle and landscape photographer, Emily Boe-Lee. With curiosity as her compass, she embarks on a un-mapped road-trip through the Rocky Mountains in Colorado. Along the way, she discovers a sense of freedom that only the open road can offer. “

Over the past few weeks, I had the tremendous pleasure of working with Millican – a UK based company – and being a part of their Travelling Bag Project!

With no map, no plan, and just an itch for adventure, I took off to Colorado in search of the open road. Read the full story on Millican’s website: https://www.homeofmillican.com/blogs/journal/travel-the-travelling-bag-project-a-rocky-mountain-road-trip#article

A Summer in Iceland – Part 1

Uncategorized

This is a post I’ve been scared to make. I’ve been putting it off – not because I didn’t want to write about my experience or because I didn’t have enough to say, but because I didn’t know how to put it into words.

For those of you who are new to my work, I just recently returned from a two-month visit to Iceland. I was there to immerse myself in another culture and to make art, both images and video. This was my first time living semi-longterm in another country, and I was nervous. I’m always up for a new adventure, but I simply didn’t know what to expect from this experience. In the days leading up to my departure, I made it up in my mind to go in without any preconceived notions of what this chapter of my life might hold.

Spoiler, this trip was incredible – in every aspect of the word. In fact, I have so much to say about my time in Iceland, that I’ll be splitting this post up into two parts. This is part one, in which I’ll talk about my road trip around the country.
