Macquarie Island king penguins

There are 50,000 of them and 50 of us. We officially were in the minority now. The animals are in charge, we are the visitors, and suddenly have to play by their rules. There are few places on the planet where humans are the visitors, however this rarely traveled southern part of the globe is […]

best days on earth

I feel giddy like a 7-year-old at Christmas. I look out over the barren tundra, a new environment for me, and think about how it makes me feel free and hopeful. The clouds break and a crack of blue sky appears, as if the game of hide and seek is over and it can finally […]

He looked at me and asked, “What are you nervous about?” I was shivering with water rushing around me perched at the top of the waterfall as I was staring down 80 feet to the bottom where the water spray exhibited it’s sheer power. There were so many things swirling in my head that I […]

things to do in sydney

As I watched all of the little dots climb the Harbor Bridge in Sydney in the distance, I decided that I didn’t want to do what all the other tourists were doing. Instead of climbing the bridge, I wanted to sail under it. So much of Sydney culture is centered around the water and harbor. […]

Blue Mountains Kanangra Walls

This week I’m feeling blue, I did a little look at my Instagram porfolio from the last week and realized that everything had a blue tint to it.  No, my photo editing hasn’t gone wonky, my last week actually was very blue…really.  I did a little time travel and jumped fast forward a day and […]

Kings Canyon Rim hike

I heard the howling as soon as I lay down to go to sleep. Dingoes. The sound came from my left; it felt as if it was far away. I hoped it was far away. I dozed off for a few hours, however it felt like minutes when I woke up again to more howling. […]

Australia from Above

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 […]

Luxury in Nowhere

  I found myself wandering around the aisles glancing at magazines while trying to listen to the announcements on the airport PA system. As my eyes rolled over the massive amount of paparazzi photos and ridiculous headlines, one cover with a reddish-orange glow caught my eye. Prince William and Kate were impeccably dressed and lighted […]

Uluru walking path

  The sun was just starting to peak out around the reddish rock. I pulled down the brim of my baseball cap to shade my eyes as rays of light shot out of the clouds and onto my path. The path around the base of Uluru was nearly empty in this section. Not many tourists […]
