Bohemian Trails Partners with Yonderbound

In the nearly four years that I've run Bohemian Trails, I've only worked with a select number of brands. The main reason for this is because as a writer, my biggest power lies in the readers that value the content I create. Out of respect for my readership, and because I'm an avid traveler myself, I[...]

Photo Highlights from Jamaica

It's hard not to go camera crazy in a place like Jamaica. Everything from the blue skies to the yellow and pink sunsets are just screaming to be photographed. I've narrowed down my favorite pictures to the eight shown in this post. For more wanderlust, make sure to check out my Jamaica Millennial Guide and my insights from volunteering at a local school. After spending a week in both Negril and M[...]

10 Photography Tips from a Pro

*This is a guest post (including photos) by photographer Harv Greenberg; intro by Megan Eileen McDonough Although I've never been formally trained in the art of photography, I have plenty of time to experiment and improve my skills while on the road.

5 Effortlessly Photogenic Places

I'll just start off by saying that I'm not a professional photographer nor have I ever taken a professional photography class (although I definitely plan to) so take my list of photogenic places with a grain of salt.Having worked as a travel writer and blogger over the past three years, I've had the fun of putting my own photo skills to the test.

Seeing Philadelphia with New Eyes

Philadelphia holds a soft spot in my heart and that's mainly because I caught a ball at a Philly's game when I was about ten years old. It's one of those stories that I love hear my Dad tell his friends. Even though I sort of ducked underneath a crowd of much larger men stretching their arms in all directions to catch that most coveted prize, it was a little girl who ultimately scored that day. An[...]

Self-Reflection in the Argentina Countryside

Over the holidays I did something that I haven't done in two years...I took a holiday. Well, sort of a holiday and I'll explain. My husband is originally from Argentina and hadn't been home in a few years so naturally, we decided to swap a few weeks in cold New York for sunny, 90 degree weather in Argentina.I still did some work here and here but for the most part, I was able to relax and disc[...]

Waterfalls and Fall Foliage in Plitvice Lakes

The two hour drive from Zagreb to Plitvice Lakes National Park was a gloomy one. The skies were cloudy from an early morning rain and it seemed like the closer we got to our destination, the gloomier it became. Almost as if the skies were playing a little trick on us, the clouds began to clear right as we approached the park. By the time we had made it to the entrance to meet our guide, the clouds[...]

Photo Highlights from Maui

I had always heard great things about Maui and Hawaii in general so my expectations were already pretty high. Yet, I don't think it sank in until my plane began its descent into Kahului Airport and the vibrant green valleys that make this island so unique began to appear. From that moment I was totally hooked on Maui and I hadn't even left the comfort of my aisle seat. Having finally gone through [...]
