What’s in a glindarayepix?
The name glindarayepix is the professional moniker for Ben & Glinda Shipley from our stint in the commercial photography business. In the course of taking more than ten thousand photographs all over the world, we’ve found ourselves landing in one fascinating adventure after another. This led to our stretch as travel columnists for Herald Publications of Los Angeles. Those stories bear retelling—says we—so here we are, doing just that.
What’s in a Newsletter?
Every Friday at Noon sharp (Los Angeles time), we’ll hit your inbox with an entirely new 1,000-word rant, review, essay, profile, whatever. Copious photos, and not all selfies!
Some examples of our favorite topics:
If It's Tuesday, This Must Be… [Travel planning]
This Travel is a Risky Business [Or is it?]
How We Re-invented the Orient Express [And found Dracula along the way]
In Defense of Sponteneity [A winter ramble through northern Italy]
Oh What a Lovely War! [Picking and choosing among memories]
Sacred Cows and Curries [Dining in and out in India]
Down on the Bayou [Five lost days in Louisiana]
We'll Always Have Casablanca [American travelers in an Arab world]
Pork Pies and Pickled Onions [British cooking, then and now]
What’s in an Odd & End?
Some topics, however fascinating, are too short for the newsletter, so we’ll be accumulating them over the course of the week on the website and then compiling a digest to go out to you every Tuesday at Noon. General topics might include:
Our favorite travelers and travelogues.
Unforgettable travel movies.
Travel screw-ups we’re willing to admit to.
Ridiculously over- and under-priced hotels we’ve known.
Unique cuisines and dishes we’ve picked up along the way.
Grouch’s corner, if we can find something to grumble about.
What’s in a City Profile?
Obviously, it depends on the city! But every so often, as a change-up to our Tuesday Odds & Ends routine, we’ll be sending out profiles and musings about our favorite cities around the globe, where we try to get to the core—to the Thing, so to speak—about a particular metropolis. Some examples, past and future:
The Thing About Bruxelles.
The Thing About Istanbul.
