Cruisin’ the Caribbean

Cindy Eccles Photography took to the high seas to explore a handful of islands in the eastern Caribbean. Follow along with three photographers exploring four islands over eight days as they trace the footsteps of rum-running pirates while discovering the true gems of the islander peoples!

Magical Cairo

Egypt–the land of the Pharaohs–is a remarkably diverse country rich in both history and culture. As a child, I remember daydreaming of climbing the pyramids or discovering a tomb of an unknown queen/pharaoh! As an adult, thoughts of the pyramids stirred romantic images of a dusty plain, far from the reaches of society where sand dunes marked the time of the ancients and the Bedouins were the keepers of the pyramids. When I finally had the chance to visit, I was shocked to see urban life bearing down on these testaments to time. While cast in the shadows of the Great Pyramids, the rich mosaic of Old and New Cairo with Giza as a backdrop is no less remarkable and enhanced the charm and mystique in the eyes of both the child and the adult. Follow along as I explored parts of this magnificent city or enjoy my gallery; perhaps you, too, may gain a new perspective.

Icelandic Winter

Iceland’s landscape is dramatic no matter the season. This visit to the land of fire and ice occurred in December, where sunlight was available less than 5 hours a day–cloud cover depending. But, when the clouds break, the northern lights dance across the sky providing a very mystical and magical experience.  Follow my journey at this link or visit my gallery

Introduction to a Solo Traveler’s Journeys

I was born into a military family, and as most military families do, we moved every 3 to 4 years.  You could say I was born to travel! over the past two decades, I had the amazing opportunity to travel throughout the United States and North America, Europe, and the Middle East, where I learned about unique cultures, saw beautiful sights, and ate fantastic food!  I have tried to document as many of my experiences as possible, and I hope this blog inspires you to take your own journey to learn more about the world and neighborhoods around us.  Sometimes the most interesting people and amazing sights are literally around the corner!
