Chasing Waterfalls in Arkansas: Day 2

After an incredibly successful first day of waterfall hunting in the Richland Creek Wilderness area, we decided to pack another day full of waterfalls, this time in the Upper Buffalo area. We thought this hike would be trickier, but these waterfalls were all so close to one another, it was actually easier than day 1. The first waterfall we found was the easiest because it’s … Continue reading Chasing Waterfalls in Arkansas: Day 2

The Stans – Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, and Kyrgyzstan

In 2019, I took a tour of the 5 Stans and it’s a trip I’ll never forget. It’s taken way too long for me to blog about it, but I’ll try to highlight the best parts of the trip. We arrived at the Ashgabat airport early morning and transfered to the city where we immediately began our tour of the city. Turkmenistan is a very … Continue reading The Stans – Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, and Kyrgyzstan

The 30 Countries I’ve seen so far!

As I prepare for my next trip abroad – CHINA! I’ve had a lot of time to reminisce over all the countries I’ve already been to. I’m celebrating 30 countries seen so far, but to clarify – I’m counting my home country, Cayman Islands (technically not a country), and the Netherlands. I spent one night in Amsterdam and didn’t get to do anything fun because … Continue reading The 30 Countries I’ve seen so far!

The people are wonderful, the food was fantastic, and there was a plethora of sites to visit. Here are some of the highlights from my trip. Taking the Telefèric up the mountain to see … Continue reading Have you been to Lebanon?

My Favorite Things about Russia

I’ve been reminiscing a lot about my past travels since it seems like we probably won’t be able to travel again for awhile. The last trip that I went on in the fall of 2019 was to Russia and the five Stans. The trip was absolutely amazing, but a month of travel was too much for me. It mostly satisfied my travel bug. There aren’t … Continue reading My Favorite Things about Russia

Day 95: Hidden Gems: Alley Spring, Eminence MO

My first float trip of the season went very well. We visited Alley Spring in Eminence Missouri and floated the Jacks Fork river. I was really surprised to see the number of people out camping, but I guess I shouldn’t be. We’ve all been cooped up all spring. I think this was my first time to float the Jacks Fork river but I’m not for … Continue reading Day 95: Hidden Gems: Alley Spring, Eminence MO

Day 76: Hidden Gems: Hercules Glades Falls

Missouri may not be at the top of most people’s travel list, but there are plenty of beautiful places to visit. Recently, I hiked along Hercules Glades in the Mark Twain National Forest to find the water falls. I’ve been told if you go too late in the season you’ll find the falls completely dried up. Fortunately for us there had been plenty of rain … Continue reading Day 76: Hidden Gems: Hercules Glades Falls

Day 73: What are the top 5 destinations on your travel bucket list?

I like making lists. It’s a good distraction, and right now, I feel like we could use a good distraction. I haven’t met anyone who doesn’t have a list of places they’d like to travel to in the world. I, myself, have done some extensive traveling, but I haven’t been to every place on my bucket list. Here’s my top 5 travel destinations with descriptions … Continue reading Day 73: What are the top 5 destinations on your travel bucket list?
