Save Place
Lihue, HI 96766, USA
A lot of people throw around the word "authentic" and then book 15,000.00 trips to Tanzania. I can't imagine that is authentic, as people certainly don't bring that home in a year much less in 7 days. Kauai is a beautiful island with great...
Save Place
Galápagos Islands, Ecuador
Upon stepping onto the island, within the first few steps, I looked to my left to see a giant marine iguana soaking up some rays. He was beautiful! Right after this picture was shot he slowly slid into the water and swam away. Needless to say I...
Save Place
The Galapagos Islands are known around the world for the famous, endemic wildlife found there. An amazing eighty-percent of all land-based animals on the archipelago are only found there, thanks to its isolation from the rest of the world. Of all...
Save Place
North Seymour Island, Ecuador
The magnificent frigatebird soars above the waters of the Galapagos, terrifying fish everywhere it goes, stopping just long enough to puff out its chest to impress the opposite sex. The frigatebird is notable for its tremendous size, ability to...
Save Place
Isabela Island, Ecuador
Isabela and all of it's beauty awaits you. Flamingoes, iguanas, giant tortoises, penguins, blue-footed boobies, hammerhead sharks.. you name it, it's there for you to experience in Isla Isabela.
Save Place
Marchena Island, Ecuador
Our cruise ship came equipped with a number of dinghies that we used to land at various islands, chase dolphins, and take us out on snorkeling trips. Riding these rubber beasts was good fun, especially when traversing rough water, and they allowed...
Save Place
Fernandina Island, Ecuador
The lagoon near Punta Espinoza is a little slice of heaven, especially if you're a sea turtle looking for a place to catch a few rays. We saw no fewer than a dozen turtles playing in the calm waters of the lagoon, a far cry from the tumultuous...
Save Place
Fernandina Island, Ecuador
Getting a pilot's license is tough business, especially if you plan to get instrument rated, and sometimes it's better left for the birds. The Galapagos hawk is the master of the island skies and one of the most impressive birds of prey I have...
Save Place
After five very active days on our Galapagos expedition, we skipped the opportunity to take a hike in Puerto Egas and instead decided to relax on the beach. A sea lion had similar ideas and plopped herself right down next to my daughter's towel...
Save Place
Group shots aren't usually my cup of tea—I'm not a selfie guy, either—but when you're in a location as spectacular as the Galapagos, everyone is game for a snap or two (except me, of course—I'm behind the camera). This was taken after our group...
Save Place
Crijevićeva ul. 9, 20000, Dubrovnik, Croatia
There’s no denying that Dubrovnik is a gem of a city – lots of things to do and see but, if you go any time starting in May, it can also be sweltering hot. The cool blue waters of the Adriatic Sea will look ever so inviting but there are the old...
Save Place
Landmannalaugavegur, Iceland
At the beginning of a 4-day, 40-mile trek through the fringes of the Icelandic highlands, we saw these artistic masterpieces. Landmannalaugar. To me, they were the Rainbow Mountains. Majestic. Surreal. Hiking by this beautiful landscape seemed...
Save Place
Kaihalulu Beach, Hana, HI 96713, USA
This was the end of the Hana Highway in Maui. Our guidebook told of a red sand beach, but it specifically left out information on how to get there, in an effort to keep people from spoiling it. Before our trip, I printed out some instructions from...
