Eid, Mt. Sinai (photograph credit: Zully Rosado, Spiritual World Traveler) Eid is a young Bedouin who has been guiding people up and down Mt. Sinai daily for the last 5 years or so. When asked why he didn’t go to college and get a job in Cairo since he was so smart and spoke English so well, he made a sweeping motion with his arm and said, “Why would I leave this?” (True story) — This is a guest postcard […]
Greetings from Nepal…wish you were here! Photo taken in November 2011 at the Thorong-la base camp on the Annapurna Trek at 4450m (14,600 ft). If there is one dirty, cold hell on earth it was here. The Thorong-La base camp is in located where air is thin and cold and is a no man’s land. There is absolutely nothing except this dreary camp where you can rent a freezing room and eat a meal in a room full of stinky […]
Greetings from Beijing…wish you were here! Photo taken at moat surrounding the Forbidden City in Beijing, China November 2011. Just like the sky, the water in China was equally unsettling and gray. We never saw a clear day the entire time we were there. The pollution seemed to strangle the city out of life. At least there was no garbage in the rivers and streams like I saw in India and Nepal. I found this photo pretty regardless of the […]
Greetings from Tucson…wish you were here! Photo taken in December while hiking in Sabino Canyon, Tucson, Arizona. My parents have lived in Tucson for years now and I love to visit them, especially during the winter months. Over Christmas we were there for a week and a half and I made sure to visit my absolute favorite place, Sabino Canyon. There are tons of amazing hikes and it is always beautiful no matter what time of year. I especially love […]
Greetings from Patagonia…wish you were here! Photo taken during one of many hikes in Las Glaciares National Park, Argentina. November 2009. I loved this tiny mountain village called El Chalten in Argentina. It is at the base of Las Glaciares National Park and is just a speck in the oasis of Patagonia. Founded in 1985 as a base for dedicated climbers of neighboring Mount Fitz Roy, El Chalten has grown into a handful of rustic homes and one main drag. […]

Greetings from Iceland…wish you were here! Photo taken en route to Vik, Iceland in the summer of 2008. I love this photo! It was the only shot I took of this waterfall with my little point and click camera but I think it turned out stunning! The verdant green grass and the milky water spraying as it crashes to the ground, gives me chills. Iceland is a place of magic and dreams. I love it and it is often unvisited. […]
Greetings from Nepal…wish you were here! Photo taken just after passing the Thorong-La Pass, at almost 18,000 feet, the highest point along the Annapurna Trek. We had to hike all the way down to that light brown speck at the bottom. My recent trip to Taos Ski Valley in New Mexico got me reminiscing about the long hike down from the highest point of the Annapurna Trek. We had started at 4 am, hiking in a long line up […]
Greetings from South Africa…wish you were here! Photo of the King Protea, South Africa’s national flower, taken in November 2005. The first time I saw a King Protea I was amazed at its size and beauty. Some are as large as a plate! I instantly fell in love with these amazing flowers which dot the hills and gardens of South Africa. I was in for a treat when I visited my parents in Arizona and found King Proteas for sale […]
