Boarding Pass – Caroline Duke

Caroline Duke is the author behind i am greedy girl, which she describes as “a catalog of smart, well-designed and inspiring finds from around the world and web.” I love this idea of getting out into the world, but also of being able to explore the world from the comforts of your home. I mean, just look at this fabulous Parisian ensemble that Caroline has pulled together with those ideas in mind! Enjoy the rest of Caroline’s Boarding Pass feature below! {Thanks, Caroline!}

last trip taken:
salt lake city. it was a bit impromptu and i was only there a couple nights, but i loved that the city is surrounded by mountains. such a stark contrast to oklahoma city.

{Salt Lake City}

next trip on deck:
hopefully, a sweet seattle getaway (i WON a trip there, if you can believe it) and then to san francisco to visit my best friend and her husband.


one place you would go back to again and again:
new york. yes, cliche.

{random shot, Brussels}

place you’d most likely recommend a friend go visit:
fort worth, texas. the dallas-fort worth area is the closest “big city” we’ve got, and people are always so glad to get to dallas. but fort worth is where it’s at, i’m telling you. there’s a shocking amount of culture in that little cowtown.

{train travel, Belgium}

preferred method of transportation:
train. i would love to not rely on air travel.

{tiles, Brussels}

place you’ve never been but dying to go:
everywhere. i have really, really itchy feet. morocco? new orleans? cambodia? prague? everywhere, i tell you.

{escargot, Brussels}

place you’d never go back:
anywhere i’ve ever been always leaves me wanting more, so i don’t think i have an answer for this one.
most memorable trip in 2 sentences or less:
to cape cod in the dead of winter when i started dating my boyfriend. everything that could have gone wrong went wrong, but it still turned out perfectly.

{Santa Fe}

how do you prepare for a trip?
with my boyfriend, we start and share a google document with our ideas and links to what we want to see and do. most of that is centered around food. also, blogs blogs blogs.

{Brussels Grand Place}

how do you record your travels when you’re traveling?
a ridiculous amount of photos. and i always take along a little notebook with some very serious intentions to write a bit, but i always disappoint myself when i don’t.

{sign, Santa Fe}

what is your favorite thing to photograph in a new place?
anything i find amusing or inspiring.

on an average, how many pictures do you take on a trip?
a lot. on a weekend trip, i can easily end up with hundreds. i came back from two weeks in europe with 4,000.


what’s in your “designer travel kit”?
a camera (canon g10), then — depending on the trip — at least a couple lomo cameras (fisheye, diana, holga) for fun. what do you do after a trip? how long after a trip does this happen?
upload photos and make everyone i know look at them. (i’m that person.) i made a dvd of belgium photos set to jacques brel for my mom, grandma and aunt after our trip. i’d like to start making little books to catalog future trips and places i’ve already been.

{postcard souvenirs}

favorite souvenir/thing to bring back?
tchotchkes and postcards. and maybe a pair of shoes. or two.
