An Ode to Hiking

Every summer when I was growing up, my parents would dutifully take me on trips to some of America’s finest national parks. Yellowstone, Yosemite, the Grand Canyon, Glacier, the Grand Tetons, Hawaii’s Volcanoes National Park… We’d go for two weeks and try to explore as much as possible, having fun as a family along the […]

Itinerary: Two Days in Sydney

I’m sitting on the plane en route to New Zealand, and after two days packed with exploring I finally have a free moment to reflect on my oh-so-brief time in Sydney. SNAP JUDGEMENT: Sydney is a really vibrant city! It has world-class beaches, tons of green space, beautiful coastal hikes and neighborhoods steeped in history […]

Torres del Paine – Top 5

At long last, here is the Torres del Paine “Top 5” video that I created for the Travel Channel. I wrote, shot, edited and narrated this project, and being able to travel down to Patagonia was an amazing experience! While watching this video I just want you to imagine me with a little camera and […]

I’m Home!

Well, after nearly 24 hours of traveling, I’m back home, safe and sound! The flights home were much less dramatic than the ones there, which is good, although my luggage is broken! But, at least it’s here , so I’m thankful for that. 🙂 I’ll be posting some of my favorite pictures over the next […]

The Cuernos

Such is Patagonia!

After 2 days of rainy, snowy grayness, I thought it was going to rain again today, my last day in Torres del Paine. I was absolutely convinced of it. One of my guides, Filipe, told me that the forecast was not looking good; he’s been here 8 years and knows what he’s talking about. Last […]

Torres del Paine – Day 2

This morning started out a little rough… But it actually ended up being a pretty decent day! We went to the Salto Grande waterfall and were able to see the Cuernos, or “horns,” one of the park’s icons. It’s snowing again, so I’m looking forward to a cozy evening in at the Patagonia Camp! I […]

Torres del Paine – Day 1 Vlog

Key lessons learned today: 1.) Don’t drink coffee before bed. I did, and the wind kept me up for hours. (When you have a 6:45 am call time, that’s not the best thing that could happen.) 2.) Patagonia is FREAKING COLD! I mean, I knew this, but when you’re actually here it’s pretty intense. Especially […]

Where In The World Am I???

Where in the world are you? I’m sitting in a yurt at the Patagonia Camp in Torres del Paine Chile. I just arrived last night, and it was quite a trip getting here! After 4 flights spanning nearly 24 hours, a night in uber-windy Punta Arenas (the “Southernmost City in the World”) and a 5 […]

A Smoky Mountains New Years

After 8 hours, 450 miles, and 15 Cracker Barrels, I’m finally home after a great New Years Eve trip to the Smoky Mountains in Tennessee. I’ve never been down to this part of the US before, and while I admit there was some culture shock (11 rows of bibles in the local bookstore, Pancake Houses […]
