The 10 Countries I Most Want to Visit

Ready for this? I’m excited about this post. To share with you where I want to go most in the world. What things I want to see. What places I want to go. What experiences I want to have. Do I want to go on a safari in South Africa, or a trek in Greenland? I guess we’ll find out. (Note: None of the photos in here are by me because, obviously, I don’t have pictures from any of these places.) 10. Italy Whether you’re interested in the creative Dolomites or beautiful Mediteranean beaches, Italy is surely for you. Or…

Making Sure You See the Best Beach in Charleston

Charleston, South Carolina is a picturesque coastal town on the Atlantic Ocean. The pastel colors of the Battery are a great introduction to the kindness of the Southern people and the warm waters of the Mid-Atlantic. First, I would head to Pineapple Fountain, where you can find the best sunrise views in South Carolina, seeing the Arthur Ravenel Bridge in the distance. It’s a common spot for photographers, but get there early; you will be swarmed with runners, walkers and locals by 7:00. The top thing to do in Charleston is to see The Battery. A great spot for relaxing,…

Experience Chicago like a Local

Granted, I didn’t experience it exactly like a native. But after going to a Cub’s game, cruising along the river and swimming in Lake Michigan, it kinda felt like it. In 2016, the Chicago Cubs won the World Series for the first time since 1908. Wrigley Field, proud home of the Cubs, housed a sea of blue and white, most of which from the visiting Toronto Blue Jays fans. The stadium was full of them, and the rivaling home team, the Cubs, were ready for action. Today, we visited Wrigley Field. It’s a great place. Full of energy. I suppose…

California Zephyr to Glenwood Springs, CO

Today was my first time in Colorado. So far it is a pretty awesome state. The nature is all right there. Granted, I haven’t seen much yet. But pulling up to Glenwood Springs Station on my Amtrak train, I think I saw a good amount. After losing my phone in an Uber, we had quite an experience trying to get it back. We finally did, and once that extreme stress moment was over, I decided I needed to visit Glenwood Springs Hot Springs. Not only a hot springs, it is the worlds largest natural hot springs! The water, reminding me…

Top Photos in San Francisco

The Golden Gate City. Baghdad by the Bay. Fog City. Shaky Town. San Francisco goes by many names. It’s people are so distinct, it’s architecture so unique and it’s culture so defined. Although I have visited San Francisco before, it has never been in one day. Here, I will show you exactly where to go for one day in the City by the Bay. The cloud cover towered over the skyline of San Francisco, but that is definitely very normal for the Golden Gate City. Our first touristy stop was Union Square, a one square block plaza flanked by buildings…

Swimming in Oregon

Oregon is a great state. Full of nature and scenery, from the coast to the mountains, you can never get enough. Yesterday, I discovered 2 of the most amazing lakes I have ever been on/in. Go visit them on your next trip to Oregon! The first is Klamath Lake, near Klamath Falls. For the last 2 days of our holiday, we stayed at Point Comfort Lodge, where you got your own private cabin. Early in the morning yesterday, I grabbed the paddle board and went out on the lake for 30 minutes. This is what the lake looks like. The…

Crater Lake National Park

Crater Lake is a lake formed by the historic Mazama Volcano, a 12,000 ft tall mountain which erupted and then collapsed, only to form thousands of cinder cones in the valley it formed. Crater Lake is a world renowned lake, being the 9th deepest lake in the world and the clearest in North America. Crater Lake has always been on my bucket list, and yesterday we got to see it! The first thing we saw, driving from our lodge in Point Comfort, were the pinnacles. They are formed by fossilized steam, caught up in rock that is ions-old Soon, we…

Mt. Hood and the Surrounding Areas

  Mt. Hood is the tallest mountain in Oregon, and an interesting one at that. With 1,600 square miles of nature surrounding it, there is no slight introduction to the mountain. It is visible from surrounding states. And how lucky are they. Leaving our stop for the previous night, we had a quick stop at Hood River waterfront on the Columbia River. Hood River is the windsurfing capital of the world, but we, unfortunately, weren’t able to go. Not that I know how. Our next stop brought us closer to Mt. Hood, where we actually stopped in the town of…

Reflection Lake: Photography

Reflection Lake is often famed as one of the best destinations to get perfect photos of the gigantic volcano that is Mt. Rainier. Of course I agree. I have seen many pictures of it. I haven’t necessarily taken many. Due to the haze in the area, which has been coming from the fires in both Oregon and British Columbia, visibility is completely cut off, making it impossible to see that far in the distance. As you can see, you can barely make out the mountain. We arrived in Rainier late, barely making it to sunset at Reflection Lake, which was…

Off the Beaten Path in Chelan

Only accessible by boat or plane, the town of Stehekin in Northern Lake Chelan holds 80 people, who share it’s natural beauty and open hearted kindness with the few that visit. Stehekin is a town at the top of Lake Chelan. Lake Chelan, 55 miles long, is one of the deepest lakes in the USA, and one of the clearest too. The best, easiest, and cheapest way to get to Stehekin is on the Lady of the Lake. Departing from Chelan every morning at 8:30, there are two routes. The slow one and the fast one. The fast one gives…
