In Search of the Fall-iest Destinations

As the seasons change, I get the itch to document it. This year, I did do a bit of exploring to catch the leaves as they turned. (Check out my photos from Colorado and Arkansas if you’re interested.) Next year, I’ve decided to make it a point to do a few more fall themed trips.…

The Remarkables (the mountain ranges show below) were all over Lord of the Rings. Seeing their beauty IRL, it’s easy to see why. Check out the views from an insane helicopter ride just outside of Queenstown, New Zealand. Watch the video below for an idea of what the helicopter ride was like. However, New Zealanders…

YAS Queen(stown)!

Queenstown in New Zealand is so amazing, even the drive into town is out-of-control-beautiful. This city is like a Disney World for grown ups. It’s the home of the jetboat (an insane boat ride with 360s and death stops that made me laugh uncontrollably because I was so nervous) and full of plenty of other…

Glacier Hunting in New Zealand

Franz Josef Glacier is on the South Island of New Zealand. It was a hike to get there, but one of the greatest hikes I’ve ever been on. Follow along on my adventure below. Rock stacking is a discipline. At least, that’s what Wikipedia told me. I love finding these during my travels. It’s always…

Huka Falls

Huka Falls are a set of torrential waterfalls on the North Island of New Zealand. In the photos below, you get the fell for the water’s pace. What’s even crazier is that you can ride a jetboat down this thing. What’s a jetboat? Oh just a teeny tiny little speed boat that can navigate on…

The Highest Peak in Germany

Just south of the tiny German town, Garmisch-Partenkirchen, stands the highest peak of the Wetterstein Mountains, at 9,718 feet above sea level. Zugspitze was most likely derived from the German word zugbahnen meaning avalanche paths. You can hike to the top or take a cable car. (I bet you can guess which one I did.) Once you’ve reached the peak,…

Partnach Gorge

Near the sweet little town of Garmisch Partenkirchen lies the Partnach Gorge, carved by a mountain river. It’s over 2,000 feet long and up to 260 feet deep. A winding foot path leads you along the side of the rushing waters, through caves and carved rock. It’s the kind of overwhelming nature that makes you feel…
