It’s been over 6 months since I announced the Epic USA Roadtrip plan for the summer of 2016, so I feel an update is most definitely in order. In that post I shared that Tristan … Continue reading 2016 USA Roadtrip Update!

As part of the greater megaplex that includes Dallas and Grapevine, Fort Worth is ‘where the west begins’. The city was originally established as an army outpost in 1849 to protect the settlers of West … Continue reading Cowboy Heritage in Fort Worth, Texas
When booking long-haul flights, do you ever think about spending a few extra days in your connecting city to break up the trip? Or maybe you just want to get away for a quick trip but don’t have a lot of time to give up. Sometimes, a short trip can be just as fulfilling as a week or two away.
While researching our flights from New Zealand back to Toronto, Tristan and I weren’t exactly excited about the prospect of spending 24+ total hours up in the air. As we looked over our route (Christchurch to Sydney, Sydney to Honolulu, Honolulu to Vancouver, Vancouver to Toronto) we couldn’t help but feel a little excited that we’d be flying through Hawaii. So we did what any sane person would do (right?). We decided to break up the trip and spend 2 nights in Honolulu, Oahu. I know, toughest decision of our lives! Our flights also worked out in such a way that we would arrive at 8am and depart in the evening, so it meant we had 3 days to spend on the island. Read more “Oahu, Hawaii in 72 Hours”
I hadn’t planned on making a video while I was in New York. I really just wanted to roam around, take some pictures, and soak in my surroundings. I didn’t want to be bogged down with spending lots of time planning, shooting, and making sure I had all the necessary shots. But I guess after going to school for video production, working in the TV industry, and shooting dozens of videos during my backpacking trip, I couldn’t get away with not making a video about my trip to New York City.
After I got home and I went through my memory cards, it turned out I had actually captured quite a lot of video footage about the things I did and saw in the city. So with the addition of some of my photos, I had enough material to put together a fun, “snapshot” look of the Big Apple. The video is meant to give you a quick glimpse of some of the sights you can take in, along with a closer look at life in New York. Read more “Video: Snapshots of New York City”
