Skiing at North Lake Tahoe!

I’m not a huge skier. In fact, I never understood why so many people wait eagerly for the frigid winter to spend thousands of dollars only to drive 5 hours back and forth every weekend. On top of that, they have to deal with the whole process of skiing or snowboarding (it’s really a lot of work: getting rentals or stuffing the equipment in and out of the car, putting it on (not as easy as you...

Travel Photo of the Day: The Beggar (Cambodia)

On last year’s group tour to Vietnam and Cambodia we had a very special adventure. We got to help out and give back along our journey while stopping at schools, orphanages, and villages along the way to donate supplies, teach English, and even help donate money toward a foot bridge in a disadvantaged village.

Travel Photo of the Day: The Rock House of Egypt

Egypt is an amazing country filled with amazing history & people. They have a wonderful culture and it’s a shame how much their tourism industry is suffering due to the Arab Spring. Our travel club knew better than to shy away from such a special part of the world and took a group tour to Egypt anyway in November of 2011. While it’s harder to get around currently it’s still...

Highlights of Brazil

Thinking of Brazil, the beat of samba immediately comes to your mind. The kaleidoscope of vibrant colors of feathery, silky, glitzy Mardi Gras costumes. The scantily clad, exotic beauties and alluring gents gyrating to the intoxicating beat of the drums; the festive atmosphere of the Carnaval; the parade of lights and the whole grandiose celebration—these elements are just a minute part of...
