I’ve been on hiatus. This last month has brought thousands of miles traveled, hundreds of photographs, four American states and one Canadian province, three national parks, and a lot of neglecting the blog! Jesse and I just finished our West…

What a whirlwind.  We have been exceptionally busy.  All for good, but busy nonetheless.  The stress has remained in check and while im working hard im enjoying it again.  We’ve been moving in and out of our place as AirBnB…

Clear Lake

It can happen at anytime to anyone. Long term travelers succumb most easily because of the sheer intensity they experience regularly, but anyone can experience burnout. Whether it be cathedral/museum burnout on a two-week marathon through Europe, or, in my…

[Please scroll down for the English version][LV] Ir lietas, kuras nedrīkst atstāt nenokārtotas. Mums “noteikti jāizdara pirms izbraukšanas” sarakstā bija pārgājiens uz Lauvām. Tiesa mērķi izdevās sasniegt ne ar pirmo piegājienu. Tomēr ar otro iecerētais izdevās! Baumo, ka šogad…
