Announcing blog re-design and re-launch coming SOON!

Between traveling and editing, find me in the water!

Thank you for visiting, I'm still here! 

I know it's been quiet around here, but I've been busy as ever editing lots of photos and writing lots of articles. I'm excited to announce my blog re-launch is just a few weeks away!

I have plenty of newsworthy travels to share. But I'm waiting to post my new content once my blog re-design officially debuts this fall. So please, stay tuned! I'll have two new installments of "Road Trips for Cameras;" a thrilling recount of surviving a typhoon in Fiji; some close encounters with bears in Alaska and Wyoming; tips for digital nomads w/cameras; New Mexico with new eyes; favorite camera and travel gear; and so much more.

Meanwhile, you can always catch my latest at:

Orbitz Travel Blog - soon to feature my recent photography road trip to Idaho

Travelocity -  featuring recent travels to Fiji

A Girls Guide to Cars - featuring my latest drive review of the Subaru Legacy, and coming soon, my  drive review of the Tesla Model X

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

Top 16 Photos & Vines of 2016 - Viewer's Choice

2016 marked the 10 year anniversary of my blog....thank you for your visits! Though my written posts have been few and far between this year, my photography website has continued to grow and I'm pleased to say this has been one of my better years for photography licensing, sales, and publications. To close out the year, I have assembled a few visual lists.

First, the Viewer's Choice - the top 16 most viewed photos of 2016 on my website, Mira Terra Images. Note that the #1 spot is a 3-way tie, all taken of the same subject!

Sadly, as 2016 comes to a close, so does the Vine app, where I managed to entertain a following of nearly 200,000 fans! My early travel vines were featured by the SF Gate Travel Section, and I later became a featured contributor to the Orbitz Travel Blog, with my #Vinecations series of articles. I hope that my vine followers will follow me over to Twitter and Instagram where I will continue posting photos and videos. Meanwhile, I hope these embeds will remain viewable on my blog for years to come.
