I travel the world, immersing myself in new experiences, art, music, food, wine and people.

Along the way I have marvelled at cultural differences and beliefs, different diets and farming principles, different architecture, approaches and spin on the same thing!

This is an eclectic mix of what I see, hear, feel, experience and love.

If you see yourself in a photo please take it as a compliment. I trust you will find the mood of what I am trying to portray in the imagery of the photo. I am happy to provide the original to you so just send me an email.

Follow my fun and adventurous travels and leave comments. I trust you will feel inspired like I do.

I offer retreats throughout the year. You will find these in the side panel.

Enjoy, Sammy x
