Kathmandu, Nepal

Before heading into Tibet, I spent 2 weeks in Nepal. Shani flew in a few days before we took off and we had some time to explore while our visa was getting processed. Kathmandu has changed a lot in the 12 years since she was last here. If her memory is correct, there is a […]

One Day in Hong Kong

We took the long way to Saudi Arabia from California via Hong Kong. We figured a long layover and a day around town would probably be a good adventure and our last opportunity to see the sea and some green before the sands of KSA. It’s really easy to hop the train and do a […]

One Day In Shanghai

On our way back to the States from Sri Lanka we had a long layover in Shanghai (around 8 hours). We hired a local guide for the day which was awesome. She took care of the itinerary, transportation and paid for everything so we didn’t have to waste time finding an ATM and getting stuck […]

Touring Sri Lanka

We really enjoyed our tour of Sri Lanka, especially the wildlife! We saw an unbelievable number of elephants even though there was some rain that kept them in the bush. Our driver was very good and even surprised Shani with a gluten free cake for her birthday!

Argentine Patagonia Gallery

This is one trip everyone should try and do! So much is still unspoiled wilderness, cared for by both the travelers, national park workers and locals alike. The magic and splendor of the Patagonia range is almost impossible to put into words. We were so lucky to get incredible weather for nearly our entire trip, […]

Trips Around Sao Paulo Gallery

During the time we were living in Brazil we had the opportunity to travel around a bit. This gallery has some of the things we did in proximity to Sao Paulo while we were there.

Sao Paulo Carnival Gallery

We were lucky enough to be living in Brazil during the world famous Carnival! It is quite the spectacle. Shani had some co-workers that agreed to give us the locals tour and we had seats in the Sambadrome for the first night. It is amazing to see all of the samba schools strut their stuff!

Photo of the Week – Dreaming of Caye Caulker, Belize

    When I’m dreaming of somewhere warm, relaxing and relatively easy to get to, I think of Caye Caulker in Belize.  No cars, no traffic, no chaos – just a wonderful place to kick back.   This was one of those vacations that everything just fell into place so easily.  I found a bargain […]
