Akwasidae Festival Ashanti Kingdom Travel serendipity.  Very little was showing on TripAdvisor in Akosombo, Ghana.  The first hotel was sold out.  The second was a little too local.  We headed into town to find some food and was unsuccessful.  We then turned the car around and planned to head back to the local hotel but spied [...]

Faces Of Bhutan, Part II.  I was a guest of Raven Tours and Treks.  All opinions are expressed are my own, and I would recommend you travel with Raven Tours and Treks.  I highlighted some of the great people I met during my trip in 2017 in Bhutan.  I was back to visit the Kingdom of [...]

Magnificent India

Oh, magnificent India.  The highest highs, and the lowest lows.  I am here for my third time.  First, in 2005 for two weeks with an introduction to Delhi, Agra, and Rajasthan.  The second time found me filming my documentary, Hit The Road: India, for over six weeks.  And now, I am back again.  This time in [...]

Faces of Kyrgyzstan

Faces Kyrgyzstan.  Kyrgyzstan is one of five Central Asian countries that was birthed after the collapse of the Soviet Union. Brainstorming for a moment, I thought of some stereotypes of the ‘stans. Turkmenistan is known as the North Korea of Central Asia. Uzbekistan known for its historical Silk Road cities. Tajikistan is known for the fantastic [...]

Scenic Flight Over The Namib Desert

By |2019-07-06T12:11:33-05:00July 13th, 2018|Categories: Africa, Unique Experiences|

The engine puttered and the propellers came to life.  The engine growl reminded me a bit of the lawn mower I used to push during my college summers.  But this afternoon was going to be a bit more exciting then pushing a mower in the suburbs.  I was strapped in behind the pilot in the second [...]

Cheetah Conservation Fund In Namibia. A cheetah is the world’s fastest land animal, able to run at 70 mph (or 110 kph). I bet you knew this fact. Even more amazing, a cheetah will reach that speed in just three seconds. When the cheetah is running at full speed, each stride will reach 21 feet (6-7 [...]

Penduka And Planeterra, Teaming Up In Namibia

Penduka And Planeterra, Teaming Up In Namibia.  I have been fortunate to spend time volunteering overseas in Armenia, Thailand, and Tanzania.  The lesson I learned is that I received much more than I gave.  It is an overused statement, but that is because it is true.  While I was volunteering and attempting to “give back”, I [...]
