The Art of Cuba

April 20, 2019

Cuba-Forbidden, compelling and utterly unique.  I’ve always had a fascination with places that are slightly more difficult to get to, they’re usually so much more interesting.  In a world that’s becoming ever more homogenous, Cuba is as different as any place you’ll find. I’ve wanted to go to this elusive island nation for as long…

WTF (Welcome To Fairbanks) Month One

October 30, 2012

So I’ve been here about a month now and I’m settling into life in what is becoming an ever darker and increasingly colder spot. I woke up one recent morning in complete darkness at 8:15 AM and the temperature was -9 degrees Fahrenheit in October! Someone used the expression the other day WTF, which stands for something entirely different here…

Valdez-The Terminus Of The Alaska Pipeline And So Much More!

October 18, 2012

Yes it was almost 6 weeks ago that I was in Valdez, but I’ve been busy.  Now that winter approaches and I’m hunkering down in Fairbanks, I’ll have time to do some catch up posts and Valdez was too awesome a destination not to get its own post. Valdez has it all, scenic beauty, an amazing boat…

Unalaska, Alaska and the Aleutian Islands aboard the M/V Tustumena

September 27, 2012

What do you mean you’ve never heard of Unalaska?  I’d like to sound all superior about it, but the truth of the matter is, I’d never heard of it until last summer either.   I met this random couple last summer who happened to mention they had just come back from a series of bird…

The Beautiful Journey To Stewart British Columbia and Hyder Alaska

August 27, 2012

On this jaunt up to Alaska, I decided I’d take a slightly different route than I did last time. Instead of going straight up the Alaska Highway starting at Dawson Creek, I thought I’d veer off to the left and go up the Stewart-Cassiar Highway instead. It’s Hwy 37 and 37A, two little roads that…

Marc and Franco, The Colorado Tour

Anyone who knows me and Franco knows that we can entertain ourselves pretty much anywhere. We’ve been laughing at the same stupid stuff for 15 years now! So give us awesome mountains, a new city, some theater and yes ANOTHER Gay Pride celebration and imagine what we can do with that. Here we are during our week…

Bryce Canyon National Park

May 25, 2012

So how come all those other parks got squished into one post and Bryce gets its own post–simple, because it deserves it! All national parks are beautiful, but some are really special and Bryce is one of those places. I never like to compare, so I won’t, but I will say that Bryce is unique.…
