A Love Letter to Disposable Cameras

I want to talk to you today about disposable cameras. Yes, those 24-shot, zoom-less, little green boxes you remember from family vacations in the early 2000s. Yes, film cameras!

I hear you laughing: They still make those?

Yes, they still make disposable cameras.

Subscribe to my email list!

Hey all.

Just a quick note to remind you that I have an email list, which would be even better with YOUR name on it!

Here is an example of the last email I sent.

I rarely send emails — only for big series or posts which I consider extra special.

The last five emails I sent:

  • December 5th
  • November 2nd
  • October 25th
  • October 11th
  • November 4th, 2017

I respect your attention and only call for it rarely. With Facebook and Instagram changing their algorithms all the time, adding your email to this list means I will always be able to get in contact with you, but only when I have something worth sharing.

The Cute Caribbean Houses of Bocas Del Toro

I’ve been in Bocas Del Toro for a few weeks now, and I’m absolutely in love with the houses. This is my first time spending visiting a caribbean island — and I have to say: there’s definitely a unique flavor here! I think it comes across well in photos — and you may be surprised by what you see. Click on thru to check out some of my favorite photos from this laid-back Panamanian archipelago:

Get Social With This Is Youth

Remote Working Location Independent Lifestyle in Colombia

Hey Friends,

As our Nepal story winds down, I need to position this website to move into its next phase. There will be a next phase, don’t you worry.

Part of that work is consolidating my audience, making it easier to reach you and market to you when I need to do so. (Gross, I know).

As such, I have two new social initiatives:

  1. I have restarted my weekly email newsletter. It’s short, sweet and to the point. Check out the last newsletter here to get a sense of what they’re like, and please subscribe here. You’d be doing me a big favor.
  2. I have launched a Facebook page for This Is Youth, mostly so I can do some paid advertising if I feel like it. If you’d like to see my content in your FB feed, I’d love if you went and gave it a “Like” or a “Me Gusta,” if you’re one of my Spanish readers 🙂 Check it out here: https://www.facebook.com/thisisyouthblog/

You can also follow me on Instagram at @thisisyouth — those are the photos you see in the “Pieces of Life” Column on the right.

Anyways, just housekeeping today! If all has gone well, I’m at Denver International, about to catch a plane.

Next stop, Panama!
