Reflections around the world

I live, breathe, feel and dream to travel. My wanderlust has never ceased nor has my desire to understand the world around us. Writing this blog has given me the opportunity and gift of sharing and reflecting on the people I’ve seen and met throughout my journeys. Some are strangers and others I got to know. Yet each one of them have profoundly impacted me in one way or another.

When I view these photos, I reflect upon many things such as….

Poverty

Cuba has a strong Afro-Cuban heritage who take pride in their unique culture.

As I reflect upon what I’ve witnessed in this world, I dream of making it a better place for all and dream of a day where there is not so much suffering and pain.

  5. Such a great and thought provoking post! The images are so eloquent, each one a poem (as always Nicole). Poverty is the reflection of external force; Dignity, Humanity, and Love, the reflection of our inner strength! Congratulations
