So, I won’t be sharing all of my meals but I couldn’t resist a pumpkin quiche with goat cheese and café. A Spaniard would never miss an opportunity to embellish something, be it a wall, their bodies or even their food.

I will be spending the next few weeks in the pueblo of Peñafiel, where my mother and grandmother were born, in the Valladolid Province of Castile and León. We spent many summers growing up here and in Madrid. The pueblo is well known for it’s castle and vineyards with some of the best wines in the Ribera del Duero region. My spirited nephew is also coming up from New Mexico to help me shore up the family homestead.

Mirror at the foot of Salvador Dalí’s bed in the Portlligat Museum-House, Salvador Dalí’s home from 1930 to 1982 – Portlligat, Catalonia, Spain. Dalí positioned a mirror so he could see the dawn from his bed and be the first Spaniard to see the sun rise. The Cap de Creus peninsula is the easternmost point of Spain.

I was pleased to have a diverse collection of images published while I was away traveling this fall including shots from Seattle’s Solstice Parade and Boeing’s launch of the 787 Dreamliner. It’s always intriguing to see what images editors show interest in. It’s rarely the best shot you have or even what you think is the most striking.
In the current issue of to Condé Nast Traveler is my first contribution to the publication – this image from Olympic National Park illustrating their story on the world’s last great quiet places.

I was shaken out of bed this morning by a minor earthquake here in Pokhara. After four months on the road, I’m taking that as a sign that it’s finally time to go home.

Weather permitting, the views of Kathmandu are sweeping from Swayambhunath. Storms have been rolling through Nepal for the last week. The rains have been a welcome respite to the pollution and noise of the city. Bhaktapur is a very well preserved medieval town in the Kathmandu valley where many locals still make a living farming wheat & rice.
