Venice, Italy ReportShareDownload683.59K

A romantic gondola ride through Venice... or a staged Instagram moment? 🚣🏻‍♂️ — SWIPE LEFT ⬅️ to see what else my camera captured! — These shots always involve more work than it might seem at first glance. I brought my tripod along for this float trip down Venice’s narrow canals, and attached an “intervalometer” to the camera, which triggered photos every 2 seconds. — For the first half of our 30 minute ride, the camera clicked away as the scenery passed by, and we tried different poses. Looking to the side, looking at each other, adjusting my posture, @anna.everywhere fixing her hair. 😜 — Finally, when we were confident we had something useable, I carefully crawled back to the front of the gondola trying not to tip us over, packed up the camera, and enjoyed the rest of our experience. With our gondolier Valentino singing romantic Venetian songs in the background... ❤️ —

The magic of Venice Carnival! 💃🎭 — Modeled after ancient Greek and Roman festivals, Carnival was a holiday that allowed regular citizens to dress up in anonymous costumes and make fun of the aristocracy without fear of retribution. — But it eventually backfired, allowing criminals to get away with all kinds of crimes behind the masks, and Carnival was banned in 1797. The celebration & parties returned though during the 1960’s. — Wandering through the confusing alleyways and canals of Venice this week with colorful characters like this was so much fun! 😁 —

I’ve always wanted to experience this view of St. Peter's Square from the top of the dome at St. Peter’s Basilica in . Finally got the chance! ⛪️ — No matter what you think about the Catholic Church, its history & influence over humanity over the years is pretty incredible. Vatican City is an independent city-state, with a population of only 1000 citizens, and the spiritual center for 1.2 billion people around the world. — Climbing up the stairs to the dome is a bit of a workout! But definitely worth it. There’s an elevator that goes part of the way, but you’ll still need to climb for a while either way. 👍🏼

You're never too old to play in the snow... 🏂 — I’ve been snowboarding for about 25 years now. I started as a kid, and grew up just 30 minutes away from two ski resorts in New Hampshire. I’m forever grateful that my parents introduced me to skiing & snowboarding at a young age. I was never a big “team sport” kinda guy, but boy did I love racing down a mountain in the snow! — When I was choosing a college, my number-one requirement was that there would be great mountains nearby. And I took a year off before starting school to be a backcountry ski-bum in Montana, working nights as a short-order cook and snowboarding 5 days a week in the winter. It’s been a big part of my life. — Had a blast hiking for some fresh tracks down Zugspitze glacier last week, on Germany’s highest mountain! 🏔

Just a couple with their heads in the clouds... 🌤 — I haven’t been very active on social media the past few weeks. Just got sick of posting, commenting, and all the upkeep involved. Instead, I’ve been sitting in front of my computer working 8 hours a day and binging on Netflix in the evenings. 💻 — Updating old blog posts, SEO audits, and website code speed improvements aren’t very Insta-Sexy. So — here’s a pink salt lake in Mexico that looks like it was inspired by Salvador Dali! 🎨 — I think we’ll go for a walk around Verona today.

Kerlingarfjöll ReportShareDownload885.12K

Kerlingarfjöll was named after an old troll woman who called these colorful mountains home. One night, she failed to return before sunrise, and the sunlight turned her into stone. Or so the tale goes... 👹 — If you want to get off the beaten path a bit and extend your Golden Circle drive with something more adventurous, this strange geothermal area is a perfect place to stop for a half-day hike, spending the night in a cabin or the nearby campground. ⛺️ — However because it’s in the highlands, you’ll need a 4X4 to get out there. The roads are rough (and regular rental cars aren’t insured for Iceland’s F-Roads.) For more tips on hiking Kerlingarfjöll geothermal area, check out my new blog post, ✅LINKED IN BIO✅

One of the most beautiful beaches in South Africa, Beach is massive. White sand and blue-green water for as far as the eye can see! ☀️ — You’ll find it at the end of the hair-raising (and stunning) Chapman’s Peak Cliff Drive, South of Capetown. — However the beach is notorious for muggings, and it’s not recommended to walk it alone.

Habana Vieja, or “Old Havana” was my favorite part of Cuba’s capital! The colorful old cars, the classic architecture, music in the streets. 🇨🇺 — In recent years, Cuba has seen major changes as Americans began flooding in when the rules were relaxed. Its been a mixed blessing. Local people are able to earn more from the tourism, but it’s been so sudden that the whole country was running out of things like beer. 😳 — If you’re planning a trip to Cuba this year, make sure to check out my favorite things to do in Havana!
