We left the house around 5:30. The bus was coming at 6:00. Nobody was thrilled to be awake so early. It would have been way more convenient to have hired a private shuttle from La Tigra to Montezuma. But we weren’t interested in traveling like tourists. As anyone who has traveled extensively knows, much of […]

Sometimes, to view the extraordinary, we need not travel any further than our own living room. Sunday morning, we were sipping coffee, admiring the wintry beauty in our yard. Suddenly, the dog ran into the living room, whining and crying. “Moose!” I said as I plopped my coffee down. We ran into the living room […]

Does it ever feel like the world is conspiring to make you go crazy? To make you question your purpose? To challenge your idea of your Self and your identity? Thursday I got off work early. I was totally pumped. My plan was to have coffee with a friend, review my new maps for our […]

The first trip with our travel company (that is yet to be named) was to Costa Rica! My partner and I have traveled there extensively; I’ve spent over seven months there throughout my life. We have come to enjoy and appreciate the country and its people immensely, and so were overjoyed at the opportunity to […]

Attention Ladies (Or gentlemen who know ladies)! May 11-18, 2013, we will be exploring Tuscany and our dreams!

However, we will be walking only four days of the eight […]

I wrote this as an author’s note in my last post, but want to make sure that everyone sees it. I’m writing this a pre-announcement. Stay tuned for the real deal. My girlfriend (and now business partner) and I have been unbelievably busy the last two months starting our new personal growth travel business! I […]

Bolton Castle is a photographer’s dreamscape. Not only is it among the more well-preserved castles in England, but there is also ceaseless medieval entertainment. Because parts of the castle have crumbled away, the lines and shapes that the eye are drawn to are magnificent. The eraser of time has opened up most of the roof […]

“Yesterday is ashes; tomorrow wood. Only today does the fire burn brightly.” – Eskimo proverb As I said in a previous post, I was in Atlanta visiting family. On Friday night, my sisterĀ  Donna and brother-in-law Matt and I were sitting on their deck enjoying a nightcap. They had just put my nephew Jackson and […]

My grandmother used more aphorisms than anyone I knew. They weren’t famous sayings and they might not have been her words to begin with, but they became hers. As annoying as it was to walk into the kitchen, bleary-eyed, after a night of twenty-something binge-drinking, and have her say, “You can’t soar with the eagles […]

Dearest readers, It is with great relief and regret that I post my final Movember picture. Though I am three days short of full month, I believe that I have served my peers well in this endeavor. Next year perhaps, I will join a Mo-team that raises money instead of just eyebrows. Enjoy.
