I just returned from 11 countries in 5 weeks (crazy, I know!), visiting Iceland, The Faroe Islands, Spain, Portugal, Morocco, Italy, Greece, Malta, Belgium, Germany, and Czech Republic. The trip was planned for 4 weeks, but we missed our flight home and it turned into almost 5! We flew between every country, since flights are so cheap in Europe. 17 plane rides!

Our dream trip literally formed overnight as five women, from all over North America, chatted about traveling together on a once in a lifetime trip. But then something completely unforeseen and magical happened. We thought, "Hey, why does this have to be once a lifetime?"

Why can't we have these experiences with each other as often as we like?

How can we inspire other women to travel often with each other also?

Hi Judy! Tell us a little bit about yourself, for those who aren’t familiar with your work. What’s your background in photography?

Hi there! I am a photographer, wife and a mother of three boys living in Manhattan.

Photography has always been a long time hobby of mine but I decided to pursue it as a career after a few years of practicing law. I realized I desperately craved a creative outlet. It was a challenging transition but so happy and grateful I did it!

At the end of May, I travelled from Regina, Saskatchewan to Shanghai, China with a group of friends. Our first day in Shanghai was exhilarating! We woke up at the Rock & Wood Hostel, purchased a map and planned our day over breakfast in the dining area. There are many green public spaces in Shanghai and they are well utilized. People's Park was a personal favourite. People were dancing, practicing Tai Chi, playing mahjong, sleeping, singing, talking and eating. I saw a young girl painting with water on the path and watching it fade away. It was beautiful and made my heart happy.

Visiting Paris has always been on my bucket list and my two best friends and I have been talking about planning a trip for what seems like forever. Finally, one day while perusing flight deals we decided to just go for it. The plan was to travel to Paris first, London second and take the train back and forth. In hindsight, flying into Paris would've been much easier, especially after a long flight and jet lag. But easy doesn't make great memories! The train was actually quite convenient and a great way to relax after a long flight. You can buy snacks (and WINE) for your 2 hour trip without even leaving the station.
