Packing Tips: How To Pack The Right Way

Posted by on May 13, 2016 in Packing Lists, Travel Blog Posts, Travel With A Plan! | 0 comments

Have you ever been on a camping trip and forgot to bring the most important thing of all: spare batteries! Nowadays, it is all about pictures or it did not happen. No matter how wild your tale may sound, if you have couple of shots to prove it, you are in for business. But all of this is pretty much downright impossible if you forgot to bring spare batteries for the camera, or more likely nowadays your power bank. Why not charge your phone/camera at the car?

Travel Photo of the Day: Child of Cambodia

Posted by on Feb 13, 2015 in Photography Travel Blog, Travel Blog Posts | 0 comments

One of my favorite travel photos from our Cambodia group tours is this adorable picture of a little girl hanging out in the front yard with her cow. This shot was taken at a very poor village we support. Each year we take our guests here and play with the children and their families and also work on a particular social project for the village’s school.  By donating money for important projects that enable the children to have a proper education and nourishing food, our Cambodia group tours not only offer an amazing, unique adventure,...

What a tongue from our Costa Rica Tour! I don’t even remember what type of bird this was but love the pose she gave to us! This shot was taken from our travel club’s 2013 Costa Rica Tour.
