Travel | Heybeliada Island

You’ll have to forgive me for keeping this post short on words and long on photos. It feels like the only thing I’ve done this week is work, eat, and sleep. But that’s not completely true — at least some of that work involved another trip to Istanbul, two nights on the 31st floor of a fancy …

Travel | A Week in Istanbul

It’s a little funny to write this post about my week in Istanbul when I know that I’ll be heading back there again the day after tomorrow.

Travel | The Streets of Lisbon

Streets of Lisbon

If you’re a design geek, it’s perhaps nearly impossible not to fall in love with Lisbon’s architecture and the colorful tiles (azulejos) that adorn so many of the buildings.  A huge highlight for me was simply getting lost in the winding streets and snapping away to my heart’s content.  Since I told you all about …
