What’s Better – Color or Black and White Travel Photos?

It’s an age old question, since the introduction of color photographic materials people, photographers, and nit-picky mothers having photos made of their kids have debated this point. So which one is better color or B&W photography? 

The Dubai Marathon -or- Mom and Dad visit the Middle East

However you want to title it, this is a really cool post to be making. One of the things I vowed, resolved (whatever), to do this year was to run more. I’m not a huge fan of running, I hate it really – but the benefits to your health are black and white. So, lastContinue reading “The Dubai Marathon -or- Mom and Dad visit the Middle East”

One word. AMSTERDAM! (Pics)

Ok. Ok. Listen, I know, the title says one word, but really there are 4 words in the title, and of course I’m going to type up some stuff here too to kind of give you an idea of what is going on in this post. One word would be a hard limit to stickContinue reading “One word. AMSTERDAM! (Pics)”

Egypt in a day? Sure, why not. (Pics)

I’m going to quickly develop a reputation as that one travel blogger who only stays in places for one day and then moves on. There is something to be said for that approach, jet lag isn’t a problem because you’re back home before you even acclimate a bit, you spend less money, and at theContinue reading “Egypt in a day?

London in…maybe 7 hours

My leave in the United States seemed to end far quicker than it began and I quickly found myself boarding British Airways for a flight back to my real job – being a helicopter pilot.

For my, two…is it even two…followers. The thing with blogging is that unless you’re consistent (like IContinue reading “Cabo San Lucas, Mexico (Pics + VIDEO!!)”

One Day in Dubai (63 Pics + Travel Tips)

The Purge (Dec 4)

Today is our last day at sea before arriving in Tarawa and I now get why everyone has been in such a good mood today. Just like when flying into another country you aren’t allowed to bring in most fruits and vegetables and meat products, definitely not meat products. So began the purge, and itContinue reading “The Purge (Dec 4)”

The Fleet (Nov 24)

Today was an interesting day, for me at least. At some point last night we wound up meeting up with 3 other ships from Don Wong tuna company for a little bit a fleet fishing activities. 2 other helicopters from Tropic were out there too. It’s a novelty item for me since for the lastContinue reading “The Fleet (Nov 24)”

Expect the unexpected.

Today I was told to be ready for pickup from my hotel by 7am. I was downstairs, checked out and sitting waiting patiently like a good on time soldier in the army. 15 minutes early. That was a mistake. For two reasons, one – I’m on Fiji and nothing here runs on anything other thanContinue reading “Expect the unexpected.”
