Tidy Up Your Travel Life: Marie Kondo Style

Marie Kondo’s magic art of tidying up seems to be all the rage over the past few weeks, thanks to her new Netflix show, ‘Tidying Up With Marie Kondo.’ A few years ago, I put her book, ‘The Life-changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing’ on my reading list, but never got around to reading it (it’s still on the list though!). When I found out the other week that she had a Netflix show, I had to watch. I’ve only seen a few episodes, but already I’ve been inspired to reorganize and donate my extra belongings.

Travel News: How to Photograph People When You Travel (Without Being Disrespectful)

I recently read this article on photographing people while traveling that I think is extremely relevant in today’s photo-and-social-media-obsessed world. We’re getting used to taking pictures anywhere, and even when being sensitive to the privacy concerns, it’s hard not to get other people in your photos when you’re at popular tourist sites like the Eiffel Tower or Taj Mahal. But when you’re traveling and come across a person/persons that you’d love to capture an image of, what’s the most respectful way to proceed?

The Road to Leh, India

Reaching elevations of 13,000 and 17,480 feet, the two-day bus ride from Manali to Leh (Ladakh), India is not for the faint of heart. Not knowing much about Leh (or where it was exactly), I joined my friends on a standard yet seemingly ill-equipped-for-mountainous-terrain public bus while battling one of the worst mysterious travel illnesses I have ever had (more on that another day – the memory is still to painful).
