The best traveling accessory is a good traveling companion. In my case, that means someone who is infinitely patient while I wander around taking pictures, or some cases, waiting around for crowds to clear to get a great shot. Jessica and I travel really well together, which shouldn't be a surprise to those who know us, as we've traveled A LOT over the past few years. This photo was taken in Bangkok, where we met up after my trip to Japan and Hong Kong in 2007. Jessica flew in from New York, I flew in from Hong Kong and we arrived about 45 minutes apart. Pictured here is her trusty Nikon D40, a workhorse on her trip to Europe earlier that summer.
