Experience Jordan: 6 Nights of Ancient History, Beautiful Scenery and Adventure!

“The day we stop exploring is the day we commit ourselves to live in a stagnant world, devoid of curiosity, empty of dreams.” A quote by Neil deGrasse Tyson, still holds true to this day and the days yet to come. We often limit ourselves to see the beauty of the world in accordance to what we know about it. Surprisingly enough, the many wonders of the world are no secret to those that realize that even places we may not have thought to visit are hosts to some of the most beautiful destinations,...

Total lunar eclipse coming

The name of the unique celestial phenomenon might sound a bit dramatic, but then again, so is the phenomenon itself. On January 21, at around 12:12 AM EST, a total lunar eclipse called “super blood wolf moon” will be visible in the night sky. The name describes a total lunar eclipse that makes the moon appear larger and red to people on Earth. Total lunar eclipses only happen when the sun, Earth, and moon reach perfect alignment, causing the Earth’s shadow to hide the moon from view. By contr...

There Are Lots Of Animals In Galapagos But Here’s Photos Of Just Sea Lion Pups

The Galapagos Islands are one of the most bio-diverse places on Earth, in fact, 97% of the land animals there can be found nowhere else on the planet. During the week I spent visiting the archipelago as a guest of Andando Tours, I took over 300 photos and more than 12 hours of video footage of blue-footed boobies, lava lizards, giant tortoises – as much wildlife as possible. There is though, one animal any camera seems unable to avoid, so much so, it became a running joke onboard the Mary Anne:...

A Disneyland Christmas – Tips and Lessons From My Holiday Experience

Planning a Christmastime trip to Disneyland can be a little daunting for anyone, especially for someone like me who is new to all things Disney.

After a lot of research, I knew that Disneyland takes Christmas very seriously and in addition to all of the normal attractions, I couldn’t wait to enjoy the special events and foods ...

Best places to find fossils

Combing the Earth for million-year-old fossils is a job many dream about but few actually pursue, but the good news is that it’s surprisingly easy to pull off as a hobby. A number of sites across the United States and the United Kingdom welcome amateur fossil hunters, as well as select spots across the globe. Countries like China, Argentina, and Morocco are rich with ancient remains though strict regulations can make excavations and even surface collection difficult. While above-board tours a...

Luxury cruise to Antarctica

Colin O’Brady would’ve had a much better time if he’d ended each day eating popcorn in a hot tub. Not to say the man who recently completed the first unassisted trek of Antarctica didn’t enjoy himself. Just that his trip probably would have been better if he could have spent his downtime soaking in hot water and enjoying a hot buttery snack. Such is the life if you opt to see Antarctica aboard the most luxurious ship to ever hit the White Continent. The Silversea Silver Cloud erases all Shack...

My Favorite Reads of 2018

If you read about my literary journey in 2017, you might not expect that this year could top it, but 2018 was a great year of reads for me. The number of books I read is my second all-time high score with a whopping 95 books. (The highest number of books I read was 101 books and that was well over 25 years ago.)

National Geographic compiled its list of the twenty coolest places on planet Earth in 2019. The top three: the small Japanese town of Setouchi, the continent of Antarctica, and the city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Setouchi has the world's greatest small-town art scene and the coast looks like something from a movie about colonizing another worlds.

2018 Geminid meteor shower

Although the Geminid meteor shower occurs every December, this year’s December 13th shower promises to be particularly bright. Since a new moon is slated to occur within a few days of the shower’s peak, the sky will be darker, making the meteors more easily visible. The shower is known for having some of the brightest shooting stars, and this year there are also a high volume of meteors expected, with a projected 100 per hour. Although the 200-year-old shower got its name because the meteors...

Fresh air, wide-open landscapes, and the sound of, well, nothing. We’ve all been told how getting outdoors is good for us, but it’s not just our physical health that it benefits. Just five minutes of outdoor activity — even just walking — can help boost mood and self-esteem, and contact with nature has been linked to reductions in stress, depression, and anxiety. Yet these days, it seems we’re more reluctant than ever to switch off. Eighty-four percent of US citizens live in urban areas, the ...
