In preparation for a return to the Russian Far East this summer with Lindblad Expeditions and National Geographic, photographer Erika Larsen and I answered a few questions.

Erika: It is hard to say how this region will change travelers because I believe the way we interact with new landscapes and cultures is so individual.
Jennifer: This voyage offers us a powerful opportunity to open our minds to people and landscapes that will defy our expectations.

I really admire Erika’s work, and I’m looking forward to traveling with her.

(And not to confuse you, but the photo for this post was taken by Eric Guth.)
