Live authentically, bravely, and with gumption
I am Maria Ricciardi and I am a traveler, writer, and photographer. I started adding my journal entries to the photos I take to share my adventures and experiences one photo at a time. At the end of the day, you will be able to walk the same path I did through my visual storytelling. I love to travel and experience new things, meet new people and photograph the world. Supporting local economies, conservation of wildlife and environmental sustainability are incredibly important to me, and what I am conscious of as I explore. I hope to enhance your experience of travel through the trials and errors of mine, and take you on a journey of visual wanderlust. My goal is to live authentically, bravely and with gumption…with my camera in hand. Would you like to join me on one of my photographic adventures?
