local roots

Sunday, November 9th, 2014

When traveling, the key to unearthing a place’s culture is often found in its food – when you avoid restaurants with menus that even attempt to cater to tourists, sip wine from local grapes and drink beer brewed with local hops.

climbing up mount washington & out of ruts

Thursday, January 24th, 2013

Have you ever been in a rut that forces you to say no to everything? A rut that makes you back out of plans when the logistics seem too complicated or when you envision yourself being way too tired? A rut that kills the thing in you that fuels your sense of adventure? Sure, I […]

Monday, October 17th, 2011

I made it seem like I was done posting about our summer road trip through Canada with that last one, didn’t I? Well, sorry about that. As I mentioned, we built the latter part of our travels around going on a whale watch in the Bay of Fundy and logistically, that brought us to beautiful […]

walk for turtles

Wednesday, March 16th, 2011

Terengganu, Malaysia has a long stretch of large, flat beaches that make for a perfect turtle nesting environment. Today though, large stretches of the beach are no longer surveyed for turtle nests because nesting populations are so low it’s not financially viable to survey all the beaches – there is too much man power required.
