118 Lê Duẩn, Văn Miếu, Hoàn Kiếm, Hà Nội, Vietnam
My first day in Ha Noi, I was lucky enough to meet up with fellow AFAR traveler Heather, who also aimlessly wanders to get a sense of a new place. Soon after dropping off our bags, we started following our curiosities. At some point in the...

Siberian Federal District, Russia
In Land Rovers and on foot, climb Central Asia’s mountains in pursuit of snow leopards. Volunteers search for the elusive green-eyed cats by tracking their footprints, scat, and prey: the argali (mountain sheep) and the Altai ibex. The expeditions...

Sultan Ahmet Mahallesi, Ayasofya Meydanı, 34122 Fatih/İstanbul, Turkey
Walk into Hagia Sophia (Aya Sofya) and look up to the heavens to see why so many conquerors and their respective religions claimed this basilica turned mosque turned museum as their own. Visitors will swoon over the Byzantine gilded mosaics,...

Chintsa, Amatola Coastal, 5275, South Africa
The big cats had been elusive for the entire two week trip. It should have occurred to me that they're cats and they spend 18 hours a day sleeping in the tall grass. It was the very last game drive of the journey. We had been bumping around in the...

Jaibalito, Lake Atitlán, Guatemala
These two brothers were the life of the party at La Casa del Mundo. One minute they were lying with each other sweetly, the next they were clawing at each other and rolling around meowing. A true sibling relationship! There was a great swinging...

Inle Lake in Burma offers many choices for visitors to the area. A floating market, floating vegetable gardens and the famous one legged rowing fishermen are among the most frequent activities but dig a bit deeper and find some additional gems....

Mikonos 846 00, Greece
Mykonos was a stop on a cruise we took. I loved to see the cats that hung out where the fish sellers weighed & cut the fish. I don't know if they belonged to the fish sellers or had just learned that the pickings would be good there.

I was blown away at the beauty and the diversity of the wildlife viewing opportunities while leading trips in South Africa and Botswana in the summer and early fall of 2011. There is a special place in my heart for the staff and the rangers at the...

The lucky cat of Osu Kannon. Beckoning good luck with its paw.

Okavango Delta, Botswana
The beauty of Sandibe Okavango Lodge is such that I didn't feel worthy to even be there. Pure African luxury from the design of the bungalows to the open-air main lodge where we took our meals and rest times. The abundance of wildlife in this...
