One year in America

It was’t really planned but we happened to take our first trip to Austin in the weekend we marked our one year since we moved to Dallas / Texas / US (from Dubai). It was also my first time ever being in the US, so for me in particular was a very exciting year, full of discoveries. I had a blast exploring Texas – Dallas, Fort Worth, San Antonio, Houston, Galveston, Austin, many small towns in the DFW area and North Texas, and one of the highlights of my year, a road trip to Marfa, in West Texas. I’ve been to Chicago, New York, Seattle, Atlanta and did a road trip in California, on Highway 1 (on the Pacific Coast), from Los Angeles to San Francisco. And in between had the opportunity to go back to Dubai and Romania, which was perfect since US is at the other end of the world. There is so much more I want to see, but I am so grateful for what I’ve already had the change to do. Texas coast, Big Bend National Park, New Mexico, San Diego, New Orleans, Utah, Colorado, Montana…. Boston, Cape Cod…. and the list can go on and on. US is the paradise if you have itchy feet – easy to travel and plenty to see. Not always affordable, but travel is my priority number one, to me is the best spent money.

Besides travel, I’ve published a book – “Marfa State of Mind. How a road trip became a soul trip”, and I’ve officially started my photography business. More print is in my plans and I’ve already put together and ordered a test photography book – magazine style – featuring a selection of images from my trips.

This is in a nutshell my first year in the US. ❤

And few shots from Austin.
