2019 – A Year of Travel In 100 Color Photographs

Every year I post 100 of my favorite photos from the year’s travels.  Ordinarily, this post comes around the New Year. For 2018 I was a full year delayed due to issues with WordPress. I’m extremely delayed in getting this post (photos from 2019) written, but had an extensive backlog to work through and have been delayed with work and travels.

Scouted: Tevas Sandals Will Survive Anything You Put Them Through And Look Good Doing It

In two weeks, I’m traveling to Africa for the first time. When I step off that plane I’ll be stepping onto my third continent in roughly a year. When I step off that plane, I’ll be stepping out wearing my trusty Tevas. Africa will be their third continent in a year, too. I paired my Tevas with a silk jumpsuit while wedding dress shopping in L.A. I wore my Tevas on assignment in the Florida Everglades, crouched down in the hull of a swamp boat, hoping an alligator wouldn’t chomp on my exposed toe...

Avicii's Death Certificate Has Been Released By Authorities In Oman — Details HERE

It's official -- Avicii's death certificate has been released by authorities in Oman. It's all pretty much as you'd expect considering how much we know about the DJ's death and aftermath, but there a few interesting things about it: for one, his date of death is listed as April 8, 1439 (in the Hijri calendar, not the Gregorian calendar, considering the country where he died).
