My Amazing Race Moment in Philly – No Opportunity Wasted w/Phil Keoghan

Posted on 1 CommentPosted in Activities/Experiences, New Zealand, The Good Stuff, Travel

I was running out to lunch when I saw Phil Keoghan, host of The Amazing Race, walk past me with the travel show staff.  Just a regular guy with his carry-on.  He was stopped by the local news to answer a few questions so I stood behind to listen.  He said “Philly is a place […]

The New Zealand Quandary – Milford Sound vs Doubtful Sound

Posted on 2 CommentsPosted in FriFotos on Twitter, New Zealand, Photography, Travel

We all want the best and when it comes to travel there are so many confusing “best of” options.  This week’s #FriFotos theme is “Best” and I keep thinking how many times I went in search of the best and found something better.  Yesterday’s post, I went in search of the best restaurant in Melbourne […]

Posted on 1 CommentPosted in Botswana, Cape Town, Dublin, Easter Island, FriFotos on Twitter, New Zealand, Photography

This week’s FriFotos theme is “Hills”.  Of course, the first thing that came to mind was the song “The hills are alive with the Sound of Music…” (yes, showing my age).  While I’ve done the Sound of Music tour when I visited Salzburg, it was before the digital camera (again showing my age) and have […]

Travel Bravery for Adrenaline Adventures in New Zealand (FriFotos)

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Activities/Experiences, New Zealand, Travel

It’s FriFotos and the word is “Adrenaline”. Playing word association, say “adrenaline” and I’ll reply “adventure”.  Say “adventure” and I’ll reply “New Zealand” with a smile on my face. Planning a trip to New Zealand generally ticks off many bucket list items that folks have.  For me, it was chock full of adventure –  all […]

FriFotos – Landscapes of South Island New Zealand

Posted on 2 CommentsPosted in New Zealand, Photography

The more I travel, the more in awe with the beauty of the land and sea I become.  When I think I’ve seen the best landscape ever, there is something new to blow my mind.  Nature’s filters of sun, rain, clouds, shadows, etc. make each landscape unique and each photo special for me (and explains […]

My Hikes around the world for #FriFotos

Each week on Twitter, there is a theme on Friday for people to share their photos called #FriFotos.  If you are new to Twitter, this is a great way to meet people, view fantastic photos and also see how the themes are interpreted (half the fun).  I’m in awe of the talent displayed each week […]
