As an avid traveler and photographer, I have a personal photo library of over 50,000 images. From randomly scanned prints to cell phone uploads, I’ve learned over the years that taking time to organize your photos is just as important as setting up that perfect shot. Having a plan of action and spending a few minutes to organize your images right away will save you hours of searching later! Here’s my formula for keeping your digital photos organized and just a click away:

Poet, writer, and national hero José Marti helped usher in the Modernismo literary movement; works by painter Wifredo Lam hang in MoMA and Paris’s Centre Pompidou, and the National Ballet of Cuba, based in Havana, is world renowned. Look for art...

I’ve had the incredible fortune to work at Zegrahm Expeditions for the last 13 years. During that time, I’ve embarked on a number of life-changing adventures from Antarctica to Zanzibar, and many places between. One of my favorite expeditions was a Vietnam cruise from Ho Chi Minh City to Hanoi; it was so memorable that I decided to recreate the Zegrahm trip in 2016, so my husband could share this phenomenal experience with me, albeit on our own and not with a group.
