Iguazu Falls Argentina in Photos

20 Comments 14 December 2012

Iguazu Falls – it may not be the biggest, the tallest, or the most powerful – but it is the most impressive waterfall I’ve seen. And I’m someone who isn’t particularly thrilled by waterfalls – and I have no idea why.  They just don’t thrill me like a mountain does or a vast open landscape [...]

Rome Then and Now

18 Comments 30 August 2012

My parents recently did a European trip which included Germany and Italy. They had a great time and enjoyed all of the cities and sites…except Rome. This was really surprising since I find Rome to be one of the coolest cities in Europe. How could anyone think that Rome – a city with so much [...]

After six years, I’m still never excited to come back to my home country. I wish I understood why I have such trouble coming back – but after many returns I still don’t understand it – all I know is that my current 5 month journey went way too fast and I can hardly believe [...]

Last October I traveled to Nepal to hike the Annapurna Circuit with my 73 year old father.  We hiked for 21 days with many ups and downs…quite literally.  I blogged about each step of that journey here on [...]
