Malaysia

Malaysia Photo Essay

I have not been to any of Southeast Asia yet.  I really look forward to the day I get too.  Ammon, Mom and Dad have all been there and loved it.  This is what Ammon has to say: “Malaysia feels like multiple countries in one. It is conservative […]

Liberia

Liberia Photo Essay

  In 2008 my family backpacked through Liberia, only a few years after the recent and intense civil war they experienced in their country. We stayed with a lovely local family we found via Couch Surfing and they welcomed us into their home for a whopping three weeks […]

Latvia

Latvia Photo Essay

In 2016 mom and I departed on a fantastic last minute road trip through Scandinavia and The Baltic States. Latvia was a first for both of us and one of the stops of our 10-Country 10-Capital City road trip. We stayed in a very great location in the […]

Kyrgyzstan Photo Essay

Kyrgyzstan, one of the very first countries I travelled to back in 2005. What an experience it was, even for the most worldly of travellers, and especially a 15-year-old greenhorn like me. The highlights of our journey through Kyrgyzstan include a crazy taxi ride with what we assume […]

Top things To Do in St Lucia

Saint Lucia is an absolutely stunning island country in the Caribbean. Saint Lucia had been on my radar for years and was even MORE than I dreamed it could be. It is the only country that I have ever said, “I could live here,” again, and again, and […]

An Excursion to Saint Kitts

By the most fun coincidence, my very best American friend, author and Dutch expat, Jessica Lipowski, ended her first book tour in the US, and launched into a relaxing Caribbean cruise at the exact same time we were on our honeymoon. By sheer luck Jessica happened to be […]

countryside of Gabon

Gabon Photo Essay

Gabon was an amazing experience and has so many intense and incredible memories, some of the best material I simply MUST keep top secret for the book series! I loved visiting countries I’d never heard of before because it’s like a a piece of the world map lights […]

ARMENIA Photo Essay

Although we only spent a total of 5 days in Armenia it was enough to prove, yet again, that just because a country is less famous, doesn’t mean a thing about its touristic value. As a family we backpacked across the Caspian Sea from Turkmenistan to the Caucuses. […]

Sand Boarding in Peru

Part 2 – Ica Day Trip Adventures After a wonderful tour of Islas Ballestas AKA Poor Man’s Galapagos in the morning, we returned to our hotel, Villa Jasmin, in Ica and relaxed before our sunset tour of the Huacachina Sand Dunes.    We felt really spoilt with our […]

Piranha Fishing in Peru

The trip to Tres Chimbadas Lake was the first and only activity where we had a few other small groups, including their private guides join the three of us. It was a peaceful 15 minute boat ride on the calm river at 5 o’clock in the morning, watching […]
