Sunshine State Scuba Day Four: Ginnie Springs thumbnail

Road trips always seem to find me entering a weird time-space continuum where every day that goes by just blows my mind. I seem to wake up every morning and say, wait, it’s day three already? How did day four sneak up? I’m supposed to seriously believe this is the last day of our road trip…

Two Thousand Feet Below The Philippines: The Cave Connection in Sagada thumbnail

I could feel it spreading through me like a heat rash — my stomach twisted, my throat tightened, and my pulse quickened.
