We got back from the Canadian Rockies and just loved it. We fell in love with the wildness, the air, and the beauty. It was tough to come back to real life. Go to our Canadian page to see our of our pics.
We are heading to the Canadian Rockies this Friday. Hopefully will be doing some dog sledding, hiking and just enjoying the beauty of Banff and Jasper National Park and the other parks around the Glacier Highway. We are very excited to go.
3 days, 1200 miles (565 miles the longest day), pulled over by police twice (Kati for going 93 mph around Tampa, me blowing through a stop light next to a police car in Ocala, FL), meeting Kevin Costner (Kati's dream), touring around the Low Country and Charleston, SC, and having fun and a great short adventure....
Climbing pyramids, swimming in underground sink holes, exploring Mayan ruins, playing in the Caribbean and enjoying our fake honeymoon. We had a great time in Mexico. Click here to visit our travel page or go to Destinations and click on the Mexico link.
On January 15 though the 19, 2014, we will be heading to the Mayan Riviera. We plan on seeing on Chichen Itza and Tulum archaeological sites as well as Kayak and snorkel in an underground cave and sink hole. Here is a picture of where we are going to explore the Mayan culture.....AND we probably will spend a day on the beach.....
Here is a picture of part of the underground river we will be snorkeling and kayaking in. This is in the jungle, not far from Tulum along the coast.
We have not updated our blog in awhile. We did get back from a great trip to Austria and Germany with a quick stop in Paris. We have posted our photos and a run down of our trip. We saw Hallstatt, stayed on a mountain top in a hut, attended a Mozart Concert in the Vienna State Opera House, spent an afternoon boating on a beautiful alpine lake, hiked, motorcycled through the Bavarian forest and spent alot of time with family. It was a great trip and you can check out all of pics here.
Though it seems that we just got back to the US, we are leaving for Austria and Germany. We will be staying in Hallstatt, Vienna and Sandburg in Austria and also going to Kati's sisters house near Munich. What is on the schedule? We are going to be riding motorcycles through the black forest, visiting with some dinosaur collectors that are opening a museum in Austria, celebrating Kati's parents anniversary and just exploring. Here is a photo of Hallstatt where we will be staying the first night:
We have completed our Peru page and have uploaded all of our photos. We will have the video of our climb to Huayna Picchu tonight. Check it out and we hope you find it interesting. We hope our fiends and family get a sense of how our trip was....

We arrived back from Peru last night, after of a week of exploring Inca ruins, riding horse back into the Andes and climbing Huayna Piccu. Here are a couple of pics, and we are working on our destination site for Peru. We will hopefully have it done by tomorrow. Click here to go to our destination site
We are packed and ready to go. We leave tomorrow for Peru and will spend the night in Lima before leaving for Cuzco and the Sacred Valley early Sunday morning. After a few days in Cuzco and surrounding areas, we will rent a car and explore a bit. We dont have reservations some nights so we will just look for a place to stay. Then we will head to Macchu Piccu. Friday we will be climbing to the top of Huana Piccu, which is the mountain behind Macchu Piccu. We should be able to get some great pics, and we have bought a GoPro camera to try to get some cool movies to upload and share. Will update when we get back.
