“We travel, some of us forever, to seek other places, other lives, other souls.” -Anais Nin


Hi! Hola! Bonjour! Hello!


I’m Beth. Welcome to Adventures and Aperture. My spot on the internet to share my love of travel, photography, and writing.


I have a full-time job, a place to call home, roots planted on this soil, and a taste of wanderlust in my soul. I believe life is meant to be explored whether across the globe or in your own backyard. You’ll find me with my Nikon in hand, getting outside as much as possible, and looking for small coffee shops or local wineries. I’m not a digital nomad nor have I quit my job to travel the globe. My travels and adventures are those based on a single, 30-something woman who has to get up and go to work, who only gets a certain amount of vacation time each year, but tries to make the most of that free time. I hope you find this space not only inspirational but relatable.


“Taking pictures is savoring life intensely, every hundredth of a second.” -Marc Riboud


I believe that photography is a window into how others see the world. I believe it shows us that there is beauty in both the light and in the darkest of moments. To be able to capture a moment no matter how big or small is a gift and one that I cherish and want to share with others.


These are my adventures. Thank you for coming along for the ride!
