Well, after nearly 24 hours of traveling, I'm back home, safe and sound! The flights home were much less dramatic than the ones there, which is good, although my luggage is broken! But, at least it's here , so I'm thankful for that. :)I'll be posting some of my favorite

After a 12 hour drive across the Patagonian Steppe yesterday, the mountains of Argentina were a welcome sight. It was one heck of a monotonous drive, and at times, a confusing one, because no one spoke english except for one Italian couple from Palermo. In my mind, they will always

After 2 days of rainy, snowy grayness, I thought it was going to rain again today, my last day in Torres del Paine. I was absolutely convinced of it. One of my guides, Filipe, told me that the forecast was not looking good; he’s been here 8 years and knows

This morning started out a little rough… http://youtu.be/82t6gKNas40 But it actually ended up being a pretty decent day! We went to the Salto Grande waterfall and were able to see the Cuernos, or “horns," one of the park's icons. It’s snowing again, so I’m looking forward to a cozy evening in at

Later this week, I head to Patagonia in South America for 10 days of hiking, filming and adventure! I’ll start in Chile’s Torres del Paine National Park for 6 days, then spend an additional 4 days in Ushuaia, Argentina exploring Tierra del Fuego and the Beagle Channel. All the necessary arrangements

The quest to accomplish my top 55 Places begins!At 9:00 am on October 1st, 2009, the phone lines for Phantom Ranch Cabins in the Grand Canyon opened, ready to begin accepting NEXT October's reservations. I had heard that getting a coveted spot was incredibly competitive and intense, so Mom, Dad

Every evening, Italians from the largest cities to the smallest villages participate in the social event of the day, the passeggiata, or “Little Walk.” They wear their Sunday best, strolling sloooowly and savoring life; wanting to see and be seen. On a recent trip to Florence, Italy, I had a

After 8 hours, 450 miles, and 15 Cracker Barrels, I’m finally home after a great New Years Eve trip to the Smoky Mountains in Tennessee. I’ve never been down to this part of the US before, and while I admit there was some culture shock (11 rows of bibles in the
