Ascending Norway’s Pulpit Rock (Preikestolen)

When I found out I’d be doing some trekking while in Norway, it was hard not to think of my past experience trekking in Nepal and be a little concerned. I had learned the hard way that trekking was not for me. Especially in the rain. Preconceptions aside, I was willing to give it another go. […]

Exploring Northern Ireland’s Causeway Coast with a Toddler on My Back

I’ll be honest. I had never heard of the Giant’s Causeway before watching Matt Harding dance on it in 2008. From that point it was on my must-visit-list. I love natural phenomenons and Giant’s Causeway looked too good to be true. How could something that looks so artificial exist in nature? Our trip to Belfast was […]

Trekking Norway’s Nigardsbreen Glacier

Although my Norway itinerary was packed with exciting activities, glacier trekking was probably the one I was most looking forward to. It’s hard not to be inspired by glaciers.

What is Khachapuri?

Recently I spent a month living in Russia covering the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympic Games. Although the experience was incredible, the culinary situation left something to be desired. Russian food…it’s not the best. But what I discovered with just a week left was that I was pretty close to the border with Georgia/Abkhazia – and […]

Jumping Around the World

It’s no secret, we love to travel. Somewhere around 2006 or so we started to express our love of travel by literally jumping for joy in our photos. It all began in Egypt actually with a group jumping shot in front of the Great Pyramid. Since then, we’ve been jumping around the world. Sometimes it […]

An Excursion to England’s Lake District

The following is a guest post from contributor Max Richardson and does not reflect the views or experiences of either Chandra or Dave I woke up on the decent to London’s Heathrow Airport. I had six days to spend in England, and too much to do. London is somewhat of a home away from home […]
