POW: Discovering Sticafoss in Iceland

POW: Discovering Sticafoss in Iceland

DESCRIPTION   I would have to say that one of our greatest finds in Iceland was the waterfall called Sticafoss. We had to drive a bit off of the beaten path to find it and it required a bit of a hike to get to, but we had the whole place to ourselves once we...

POW: Playing in the Streets of Yangon

POW: Playing in the Streets of Yangon

DESCRIPTION   One thing that I realized about travelling through Asia is that you're always bound to find something interesting when you wander around the streets of towns and cities. Everyone seems to be outside of their homes throughout the day so the streets...

POW: The Castle in the Clouds

POW: The Castle in the Clouds

DESCRIPTION   Neuschwanstein Castle in Bavaria, Germany is the kind of place that I could stare at forever. I like to imagine what building the castle would have been like and then what living in a place like that would have felt like. Imagine all of the...

The Thailand Trip Report is Now Available! Read the full trip report for Thailand here! Because we only had 10 days to spend in Thailand between visiting Myanmar and Vietnam, we were only able to cover the northern section of the country. This meant basing...

POW: Island in the Sun

POW: Island in the Sun

DESCRIPTION   New Zealand blew me away with the colour of the water in the lakes and rivers! I guess it's because a lot of it is glacier fed, so there are a bunch of sediments and minerals in the water that make it that vibrant blue colour. If you didn't notice,...

POW: The Streamy Water of Fantail Falls

POW: The Streamy Water of Fantail Falls

DESCRIPTION   Near Wanaka, New Zealand where I was living for a year, there is an area called Haast Pass. It's a really unique spot because it's a huge contrast from the area around Wanaka. Where Wanaka is really wide open and sparsely vegetated, Haast Pass is...

POW: Tequila Sunrise in Havana

POW: Tequila Sunrise in Havana

DESCRIPTION   For some reason, the first thing that popped into my head when I tried to think of a name for this photo was Tequila Sunrise. By that point it was already too late and I couldn't think of anything else, even though the name doesn't even make sense....

New Zealand: Leaving After 15 Months

New Zealand: Leaving After 15 Months

First off, Hilary and I are now back in Canada after we returned from New Zealand on December 12th. This means that our 15 month adventure has come to an end, although I know we’ll be back one day. If nothing else, our time in New Zealand was one of the best...

POW: Misty Steps at Machu Picchu

POW: Misty Steps at Machu Picchu

DESCRIPTION   The main site of Machu Picchu gets all of the fame and glory, and for good reason. Especially the standard photo that you see taken from the top of the site looking down. In fact, this is almost all that you ever see of Machu Picchu, but there is so...

POW: Lost in the Forest of Arran

POW: Lost in the Forest of Arran

DESCRIPTION   Now before you get too misled by the title of this photo, I'll just clarify that I wasn't actually lost in the forest. But it kind of looks like it doesn't it? In fact, my camera was pretty much set up on the foot path, but I was hoping to give the...

POW: Icy Reflections in Iceland

POW: Icy Reflections in Iceland

DESCRIPTION   I've never seen a place that can quite compare to the contrasts of Iceland. From the lush green mosses, to the towering waterfalls, then the intimidating volcanoes, and finally the cold blue glaciers. And everything is on such a massive scale as...

POW: A Morning in Venice

POW: A Morning in Venice

DESCRIPTION   When I think of Venice, I think about the old buildings, canals, cathedrals, gondolas, and the vivid colours. And somehow, I think this picture captures everything in one shot. Well, maybe not the gelato, but that deserves a picture all to itself...

POW: The Blue Alley of Chefchaouen

POW: The Blue Alley of Chefchaouen

DESCRIPTION   When you go to Chefchaouen in Morocco, it's like stepping foot into the middle of a Dr. Seuss book. You might expect to see all of the Who's from Whosville dancing around a giant Christmas tree. In fact, there is actually a giant Christmas tree in...

POW: Sunrise Colours from Coromandel Peak

POW: Sunrise Colours from Coromandel Peak

DESCRIPTION   Roy's Peak has become exceptionally famous and is probably one of the most photographed views in New Zealand. I have to admit myself that ever since seeing photos from the peak, I really wanted to do the climb myself. One thing that I didn't realize...

POW: Rolling Green Hills from Te Mata Peak

POW: Rolling Green Hills from Te Mata Peak

DESCRIPTION   The North Island of New Zealand is full of rolling green hills, but this place takes it to a whole new level. This is taken from the top of Te Mata Peak in the Hawkes Bay area along the east coast of the North Island. We stopped here on our initial...

POW: The View from Isthmus Peak

POW: The View from Isthmus Peak

DESCRIPTION   Isthmus Peak is a bit of a tough one to say, but the hike is really awesome and makes learning how to pronounce its name worth it. This was the first hike that we did in the Wanaka area and it is wedged in between Lake Wanaka and Lake Hawea so you...

POW: The Streets of Ho Chi Minh City

POW: The Streets of Ho Chi Minh City

DESCRIPTION   We're currently travelling in Vietnam and our introduction into the country was Ho Chi Minh city. I always seem to have mixed feelings about cities and city life in general because on the one hand, there are always things to see and do and you are...

POW: Fall Colours in the Orchard

POW: Fall Colours in the Orchard

DESCRIPTION   I took this photo on May 1st, and if you're like me I know what you're thinking..."Fall colours in May...WTF?". This one, however, was taken in Cromwell, New Zealand which is about 30 minutes from where we are currently living in Wanaka. And as you...
