Belugas, Bears and Blooms: Summer in Churchill thumbnail

Hey friends! I’m jumping out of my typical chronologically-based coverage to skip ahead and share my recent trip to Canada. We’ll be back to Thailand soon! “How do human survive here?” We’d taken off before the sunrise and watched as the view out the window turned more and more harsh and inhospitable. There were no roads…

Don’t Stop Belizing : Xunantunich by Horseback and Half Lotus thumbnail

My two weeks in Belize were filled to the brim with beautiful moments and memories. It was the kind of trip where, were it not for the day I’ll share in this very post, I’d have been hard pressed to pick a highlight. But when I think back to our big family trip, one experience stands…

The Philadelphia Zoo is America’s first, having received a charter from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in 1859 and opening its gates fifteen years…

Horseback Riding the Right Way in Costa Rica thumbnail

“At one point, those doctors nearly declared me dead.” The man riding next to me was very much alive, and explaining how a bad accident led him to trade in riding Harleys in America for riding horses in Costa Rica. It was just one of many fantastic tales we’d hear throughout the day. As a certified…
