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. […]

Visiting the PEZ Factory in Orange, CT

I love PEZ. Not many people know this about me, but I used to be rather obsessed with PEZ. Would it surprise you to know that I have a collection of 439 PEZ dispensers or that I own more PEZ memorabilia than most people even know exist? It’s been awhile since I was an active […]

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.

16 Crazy Landscape Photos of Sossusvlei Namibia

Namibia may not have a lot of people living in it, but its sparseness is part of what makes it so incredibly beautiful. On a trip to Sossusvlei, Chandra and I decided to travel in style and charter a plane to get us from the capital of Windhoek to andBeyond Desert Lodge out in the […]

Vik, Iceland: the Perfect Daytrip from Reykjavik

Iceland is amazing. In fact, otherworldly is often the most appropriate word to describe it.  The capital, Reykjavik, is a fabulous city and great place to base yourself but the country has so much to offer within such close proximity. Once you’ve explored the Golden Triangle, snowmobiled on a glacier and eaten all the whale […]
