The World is Scary

1 Comment 31 October 2014

Every country has them…abandoned scary places. Places that give you goose bumps and make the hair on the back of your neck prickle. For Halloween I thought I’d compile my best scary and creepy pictures from around the globe. It’s heavy on abandoned buildings and cemeteries since those are two things I love to photograph. [...]

Week In-stagram Review Killarney Ireland

2 Comments 09 October 2014

This week I crossed oceans and time zones and landed in my 61st country – Ireland.  I am so happy to finally make it here as 8 years ago Ireland was on my original itinerary, and thanks to my obsession with Asia – I never made it here.   The Adventure World Travel Summit is what [...]

Week In-stagram Review Great Bear RainForest

9 Comments 03 October 2014

This week I found myself in the world of fiords, rain forests, bears, whales, and remote rustic luxury.  When I landed in the Great Bear Rainforest in British Columbia Canada it felt other-worldly, sort of like New Zealand or Antarctica.  I could hardly believe that a landscape and experience like this was so accessible to [...]

Machu Picchu a Decade Later

9 Comments 16 September 2014

I’m in the same place a decade later, sitting on the terraces of Machu Picchu. The scenery has the same awe-inspiring feel. And once again for the 2nd time I am left wondering ‘how did the Incas do that?’ as I gaze upon the stone architecture. There is a constant din of noise filling the [...]

Australia from Above

14 Comments 05 August 2014

The first time I ever went up in a hot air balloon we had a crash landing. Ok – maybe that’s a bit melodramatic but I did end up with a bloody knee and a whole bunch of people on top of me as the basket drug along the ground. I called it a crash [...]

Week In-Stagram Review Volunteering

5 Comments 08 July 2014

The last week I took a detour from my regular travels and got a little dirty.  As part of my Niece Project 3.0 Megan decided that she wanted to do a little volunteering in Peru, so our last week was spent working with the amazing people of Project Peru in various capacities.  We headed north [...]

Life’s a Gold Beach

13 Comments 01 July 2014

My favorite thing to do while at Room753 was to go for a walk on the beach. Broad Beach and Surfers Paradise beach were some of the most expansive, pristine beach I’ve ever seen. The Gold Coast was peppered with a backdrop of skyscrapers and modern architecture. The sand was so beautiful it even squeaked [...]
