Safari : Southern Africa There are few experiences in life that excite you down to your core. Few moments that leave you in awe, mouth open, eyes wide, and completely speechless. A safari is one. Imagine herds of hundreds of elephants walking mere feet in front of you, prides of lions chasing buffalo, and a stray giraffe walking in front of your car. Imagine being tucked back in the African bush, far from civilization. Landscapes that rival storybooks and crystal clear...

BUCKET LIST + Even the winding drive into Niland, California was extraordinary. We decided to take back roads in from Phoenix, Arizona. Rolling hills, old farms, wide open landscapes, and massive irrigation systems led us into an old and (mostly) abandoned, salt covered town. Years of salt erosion and water damage make this wanna-be resort town an artist’s haven and a beach goers nightmare. Graffiti, broken furniture and disemboweled TVs cover what used to be porches, sidewalks and housing slabs. The sand, actually salt,...

Koh Phi Phi Islands : Thailand This is the type of place that can make postcards jealous. Its breathtaking, its extremely well traveled, and its filled with picturesque long tail boats. The islands of Koh Phi Phi and Koh Phi Phi Lee are ripped from a fairytale. The tall limestone crags frame in crystal clear waters and the powdery white sand melts softly between your toes. While your risk of getting a little too drunk, or a little too sunburned are extremely high...

I don’t think you could package paradise much better. There isn’t much the sleepy beachside town of Tulum doesn’t offer. There is a pleasant city center filled with culture and trendy hangouts. The beaches are magnificent with pristine waters and white, powdery sand. The food scene is world famous, have you heard of Hartwood? The people are friendly and the streets are lined with charming boutiques and picture worthy scenery. Ancient Mayan Ruins peek out from behind the palm trees and...

Don’t drink buckets of alcohol. I feel like I should have known this, or this wisdom would have been passed down by a concerned parent or an experienced friend. But it wasn’t – and I’m sure I can say this about any liquid you are contemplating drinking from a bucket, it probably won’t end well. Sunburned and excited, we found two unoccupied rugs in the sand and sat down. Rumor has it, when in Koh Phi Phi you must partake in...

It’s funny how much emotion one picture can evoke. The first picture I took during our Central American adventure was of my breakfast. We arrived in Nicaragua late. Immediately took a taxi to our hostel, had a celebratory drink and fell asleep after 24 hours of travel. We woke to explore a brand new city, innocent and fresh, lacking any signs of a weathered traveller. We didn’t have a tan, our clothes were crisp and clean. We were well groomed...

Phạm Ngũ Lão Street : Backpacker's District : Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), Vietnam There was a night in Saigon, Vietnam when we sat on the street drinking beer in child sized plastic chairs. Both sides of the street were filled with people lined up facing each other. Just staring at each other, like a drunken, lazy version of Red Rover. The ultimate people watching. I was honestly waiting for someone to yell ‘charge’ and both sides of the street to lunge...
