I had the unique opportunity to visit Havana, Cuba after the passing of Castro. I was expecting to see a somber country. What I discovered was a country filled with beautiful people, rich culture, and hospitality that extends beyond any words. This is a preview of the video to come. To all who I encountered in Cuba,
Here is the preview.
Tucked between the rolling hills of Cappadocia, I had the pleasure to meet the Horse Whisper, Ekrem. Ekrem has a fire and passion for wildlife that ignited my passion to tell the world about this amazing man.
Here is his story.
In October 2014 I embarked on an unforgettable adventure to Pemba, Mozambique. I was captivated by the sheer beauty of the land and the unrelenting hospitality of the people I met there.
This is their story.
A routine dive trip turned into something special. I had the chance to meet a wonderful famliy running a small dive business amongst a sea of large tourist ladden enterprises. I made this video to promote thier business and to remember one of the best dives I ever had. Under The Sea - Roatan 2014
I had a once in a lifetime chance to go visit Pemba, Mozambique. During my short stay, I met Sarah Bove, a remarkable lady making an impact by empowering disenfranchised women with job skills and a new lease on life. This is their story.
Frozen in time is what makes Havana truly special. I had the chance to visit this place during the 9 days of mourning after Castro’s death. I went down expecting to see a somber country. What I discovered was a country filled with beautiful people, rich culture, and hospitality that extends beyond any words that I can meagerly put together. To the family that hosted me from Airbnb, to the lovely young man who open his heart and his home to me, to the beautiful cafe lady who’s coffee I will crave everyday while I am gone ¡Muchas gracias! These few photos barely capture the love and warm wishes I felt during my brief encounter there. I will be back.
Located in the Anatolian plains in central Turkey, Cappadocia is a geological tapestry of honeycombed hills and towering boulders of otherworldly beauty. The people here are passionate, giving, and inviting. From Murat at the Courtyard Cave Hotel, to Ekrem “The Horse Whisper” at the Dalton Brothers Ranch, I learned about the unique history of the land. The region has been a place of refuge for many with underground cites, cave dwellings, and cave churches due to the soft texture of the stone. The highlight of my time there was the hot air balloon ride at sunrise. Of all the times I have seen the sunrise from the cockpit, they pale in comparison to what I saw that morning. Breathtaking. To quote a cliché, pictures truly do not do this place justice.
In October 2014, I embarked on an unforgettable adventure to Pemba Mozambique. Pemba is a place that is both sadly derelict and hopelessly breathtaking. I came here to go diving with my friends. I left forever touched by the unspoiled beauty of the land, the food, and the people who live there.
In 2012, I had the honor and privilege to meet an extraordinary family running an eco tourist bed and breakfast a day hike from Machu Picchu called Yellow River. Andy and his wife Tatiana welcomed me with an open mind and an open heart. Here are a few photographs of my trek starting in Cusco, my stay at Yellow River, and then ending at one of the wonders of the world, Machu Picchu. I will always remember sipping red wine while eating smore’s that night by the hot springs and the river.
From the moment I stepped off the plane, till the moment Istanbul grew smaller and smaller out of my aircraft window, I knew I was in love with the city that truly never sleeps. My first night felt like the first kiss of new desire. I was spellbound by the tapestry of old/new, east/west, traditional/cosmopolitan. Istanbul is Turkey's economic, cultural, and historical center that straddles the Bosphorus Strait between the Sea of Marmara and the Black Sea. The city dates back to 660 BC. Since then, it has been a crossroads between Europe and Asia and was the keystone on the historic Silk Road. Wandering the streets, you embrace the centuries of history and culture that have embedded themselves into the heart of the city. From dancing with strangers at Fuego Cafe, to the warm hospitality of Nural at Levni Hotel & Spa, Istanbul tugged at my heart and ignited my wanderlust. I miss you already.
Not only does Belize have beautiful beaches, it also has beautiful people. I was able to capture a magic moment when the Rotary Club from Canada gave the village a brand new playground for the school. A truly remarkable moment
I had the chance to fly here before the fall of Gaddafi. Even in 2006, you could feel the under current of change at hand. This was a gorgeous county rich in history. How times have changed.
Omar's Creole Grub - Local creole cuisine and fresh catch fish. What's not to like.
Yoli's Bar and Grill - Great views of the bay and fantastic friendly staff.
Casa Placencia - Jackie will make you feel at home. And with an addition of a pool, you may not want to leave.
Seaspray Hotel Located right on the beach, this hotel is a perfect getaway. The staff is welcoming and rooms are spotless.
