    Prague for a Weekend

    Posted on by

    Prague has always had a special spot in my heart of places I have wanted to visit. Not that I had ever been there, but there was a mysticism about the medieval city. When the chance arose to checkout Prague for a few days over a weekend I jumped at it. Now I have to… Read more »

    Visiting My Mother’s Hometown of Gotha

    Posted on by

    Back in 2003 on my way home from Uganda I stopped over in Europe to visit my brother Rob, and do a quick tour through Germany. We had a little road trip from Freiburg where he was studying up to the Netherlands. Before heading north, we took a day to visit my fathers hometown of… Read more »

    Photos of the Reichstag

    Posted on by

    I will be honest, I don’t normally shoot a lot of black and white photos. Typically my shots are quite the opposite, fully saturated with colour. However when visiting the Reichstag in Berlin, the first thought that came to mind was how well the building lent itself to black and white. The smooth metal, the… Read more »

    A Walk Through Winterfeldt Markt

    Posted on by

    Over the weekend I had a bit of free time, and decided to checkout the Winterfeldt Markt in Sch├Âneberg. The market was vibrant, and bustling with people and activity. Lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, food stalls, and lots of clothing and trinkets. While leaving the market I ran into Pat and Nicki who were… Read more »

    Posted on by

    File this post under the better late than never. The major reason for me to go on the big road trip from California to Colorado was to attend the wedding of my friends Venassa and Raphael. I had met Venassa back in 2006 in Vegas when following Pearl Jam on their west coast leg of… Read more »

    Canyonlands and Arches National Park

    Posted on by

    My last stop of my trip before heading off to Colorado for Venassa & Raphael’s wedding was in Moab, Utah. Moab is a really cool town that sits just outside of both Canyonlands and Arches, and is a Mecca for rock climbers, mountain bikers and other nature and extreme sport lovers. I was initially going… Read more »

    Horseshoe Bend, Antelope Canyon, and Monument Valley

    Posted on by

    Page is not the most exciting city in Arizona, however the sites around the city are simply breathtaking. There were three main sites I had wanted to see near Page before I started this trip. Horseshoe Bend (where the Colorado River does a 180 degree turn), Antelope Canyon, and The Wave. Going through Page twice… Read more »

    Coral Pink Sand Dunes

    Posted on by

    On my way out of Bryce Canyon I didn’t have too much of a plan for the rest of the day. I needed to get to Page, Arizona; but didn’t have to be there by any set time. I knew there were a few state parks a little south of Bryce, so I figured I… Read more »

    Bryce Canyon Part 2

    Posted on by

    My plan for my second day in Bryce was to wake up early and catch the sunrise over the amphitheatre before heading out on a hike around Fairyland Loop. When I woke in the morning I noticed something was a bit off. It was oddly warm in the car. When I finally opened up my… Read more »

    Bryce Canyon Part 1

    Posted on by

    Bryce Canyon was one of my favourite National Parks that I visited on my Southwest trip. I loved the out-worldliness of it, and how different the scenery was from what I am used to. Most of all however, it was a fantastic place to hike and take photographs. My first day in the park I… Read more »

    Zion National Park

    Posted on by

    I didn’t spend a long time in Zion National Park, and was lucky to even make it there. Midway through my trip I decided to change my route in order to fit it in. In my initial plan I was to go North from Page to Bryce then continue north through to Arches National Park… Read more »

    The Grand Canyon

    Posted on by

    The grand canyon is nothing short of magnificent. It is one of the seven natural wonders of the world, and for good reason. I had a heard a lot of good things about visiting the Grand Canyon, and it didn’t disappoint. I arrived at the grand canyon late, after wine tasting all day in Northern… Read more »

    Wine Tasting in Northern Arizona

    Posted on by

    My first big drive of my trip was from San Clemente, California to Prescott, Arizona. After watching the documentary Blood into Wine I knew I wanted to make it into the Prescott Valley to taste the wines of Manyard James Keenan and Eric Glomski. Plus everything I had read about this part of Arizona was… Read more »

    An End of Year Road Trip

    Posted on by

    On Sunday I returned from a small trip down south. My good friends Venassa and Raphael were getting married in Colorado, so I decided to combine the wedding with a visit to my good friends Joe and Kasie in California, and a road trip across a few southern states to check out some of the… Read more »
