    One of the most magnificent and mind-blowing things you’ll notice in and around glaciers and icebergs, is that they glow a brilliant bright blue color in places. So bright, and so blue, it’s honestly difficult […]

    Photo Gallery: Our First Safari in Lake Manyara National Park

    So as we mentioned in this week’s very cool episode, we were obviously excited about going on our first-ever African safari. Who wouldn’t be? But even as we left Moshi and drove farther north into Tanzania toward our first stop, we were very careful not to expect too much.

    Photo Gallery: Our Epic Day in Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park

    There are a handful of magical places in the world that truly and honestly live up to the word “epic.” And yes, if you follow our travels at all you’ll notice that “epic” is definitely one of our favorite words, and we are as guilty as anyone else for completely over-using it.

    Photo Friday: Our Groovy Day Exploring Beautiful Quito, Ecuador

    There are a few cities (that will remain nameless for the time being) where we’d just rather not go back. Beautiful Quito, Ecuador, though is definitely not among them. We’d go back to Quito in a heartbeat! It is very much a beautiful place, but beyond that we fell in love with the history, the culture, the food, the vibe and particularly the friendliness and warmth of its people.

    Hey gang! Wow! What an unbelievable experience it was to actually set foot on the Antarctic continent. Just. Crazy.

    Photo Friday: SuperMoon Over Honolulu’s Waikiki Beach

    Aloha everyone! Just leaving Honolulu after a conference and will be headed for Kauai tomorrow to decompress for a few days. We had an excellent time in Honolulu, though because we were stuck in the convention center most days, it feels like we rarely got to enjoy much of the Hawaiian sun…
