These are journeys from 2017 that we’ll be talking about for years to come.

JOURNEYS FROM INNER MONGOLIA

“We were confronted with the reality of our beautifully impractical yurt. There were no beds, no running water, a moldy aroma filling the air and a squeaky door which I broke more while taking pictures. We slept on a hard wood floor covered with royally patterned red carpet that did not match the exterior of the yurt. The windows were cracked and we were at a loss for electricity. To be blunt, not an ideal situation. But like always, we made the best of it.”

CHETUMAL & BEYOND – A LOOK AT MAYAN RUINS YOU MIGHT HAVE MISSED

“When we left the van, we saw nothing but vegetation, but soon the massive shapes of ruined buildings appeared like ghosts through the trees. Tropical birds were in almost every tree and monkeys jumped about from limb to limb high above us.

“Soon we were standing amid towering pyramids while monkeys howled in the trees around us.”

MY THAI SECRETS: SAND IN ALL THE RIGHT PLACES

“My adventure began on the Southeastern tip of Pattaya where the clubs and dirty-disco night shows are a must see for curious eyes.”

THE 4 CORNERS OF KANSAS 

“Most recently, I got to know my good friend even better when I explored the four corners of Kansas, from its Ozark Plateau basement in the southeast to its attic of big sky and rugged breaks in the northwest.”

A TRAIN RIDE ALONG THE SCENIC WEST COAST

“The full trip runs between Los Angeles and Seattle and takes around 35 hours. Stop highlights include the Klamath Falls and Crater Lake and the vineyards at San Luis Obispo, California. You’ll see the vast beauty of the Pacific Ocean and the craggy peaks of the Cascade Range.”
