Hold This Space! Hiatus is Over!

Dear friends and followers of Mira Terra Travels,

Hello again! I’m back for an update.

When my blog turned 10 years old in 2016, I decided to take a one-year hiatus. I discovered that I had a “knock off” copycat blogger based in China, who bought a domain name which was one letter off (minus the “s”), and much of my traffic was being re-directed there. No, that single webpage you might have found advertising a camera/brand is not ME! Don’t even go there.

Though I stepped back from my own blog, I continued to write, blog and photograph for other websites (check out A Girls Guide to Cars) and print publications:

Published photography in Outside Magazine (above), World Wildlife Fund catalog (below)

Essentially, this post you are looking at now is a placeholder, keeping my space and presence on the web. While you’re here, dive in and explore my archives of travel features. You might find a treasure!

Now this year (2018), I have begun the process of re-branding and re-designing my travel/photography blog for a whole new look and feel, and will be migrating select content over to a new host, along with plenty of beautiful new photos and exciting travel features. So stay tuned!

Kymri on Vine – Yes, my video content is still there, and it’s worth exploring over 450 of my 6-second clips. When Vine terminated, I closed out with 191,900 organic followers! I was also the featured #Vinecations writer for the Orbitz Travel Blog. So DO check it out.

I’ve got some exciting travels coming up soon (Fiji! Chicago! Yellowstone National Park! ), and I look forward to sharing all about them with you when my new blog debuts!

Peace & Pleasant Journeys,

Kymri

Kids Around the World – on location in Nepal

Happy Photo Friday! After six weeks in Asia, including three behind the Great FireWall of China, I’m back home and able to blog freely again. For this week’s Kids Around the World feature, I have a “behind the scenes” look at what goes on behind the children’s photos I create for Mira Terra Images (and the documentary I filmed entirely with the Canon 5DM2). Digital photography makes it so easy to engage both children and adults; and the excitement of showing them their images or playing back their takes to them, well, those are the smiles which are absolutely priceless, and which I am rarely, if ever, able to capture. At last, someone documented my work as I documented the children and people of Nepal. Many heartfelt thanks to Felicity Wright for her support and quick snaps of the moments which tell it all – both sides of the camera – and why I love what I do!








Be sure to scroll down to see other posts from Nepal: “Landslides and Leeches, a trekking journal“(re-published with photos!), “Goats and God(s)“, and “Kathmandu: Homecomings“. Next post I’ll be introducing some of the amazing and incredible children of Loving Arms Orphanage who will be featured in the documentary, so be sure to subscribe, follow, stumble upon, digg, and everything else you can do to help raise awareness and support for orphaned children everywhere.

And of course, be sure to visit Delicious Baby for more great travel blogs and photos!

Kids Around the World: Hang In There!

Two young girls can’t resist a peak over the wall of the local futbol stadium in Puerto Natales, Chile. Caught in mid-hang, did the little one fall before the other girl got the bike seat under her feet? No! She didn’t! I still can’t figure out how no feet are touching the ground anywhere in the shot.

I took this back in the days of film, and I remember it was the last frame on the roll. It was one of those moments I just grabbed and forgot about, and was pleasantly surprised when back I got the slides back from the lab weeks later. The whole scene unfolded so quickly, by the time I changed rolls both girls were on the bike halfway home, smiles and laughter all the way.

See what other bloggers are up to at Delicious Baby.

Happy Photo Friday, and hang in there!

Photo Friday: Kids Around the World – Have bubbles, will travel!

Happy Photo Friday!

One sure way to befriend a child while traveling is to have some bubbles on hand. And, it only takes a few bubbles for this little girl in Chongqing to have some new playmates!

The initial invitation…

Looking around to see who notices…

She has the attention of the adults…

quickly followed by someone her own size!

and another!

Anywhere in the world, the combination of kids and bubbles is a sure photo opportunity, as well as friendship opportunity.

So, my fellow bloggers at Delicious Baby…I’d love to see your kids and bubbles photos too!
