Waterfall in Milford Sound, New Zealand.

When I visited Milford Sound it had been raining the previous 24 hours. That meant that water was streaming everywhere down the walls of the sound. There must have been 100’s of water falls, and the large ones like this were flowing at full blast.

First view of the Taj Mahal.

When you visit the Taj Mahal you turn a corner and pass through a gate and this is how you see it the first time.

Taken last week outside of Whitehorse, Yukon while on a snowmobile. Temperature was -10F/-23C when I took the photo. Needless to say cameras do not work optimally at that temp.

Whitehorse, Yukon Territory

I’ve been up in the Yukon the last several days exploring the region around Whitehorse in the winter. Today we are going to Haines Junction, Yukon to do a flight seeing tour of Kluane National Park.

This is my 3rd time visiting Kluane and I’ll never pass up an opportunity to visit. It, along with Glacier Bay NP and Wrangell-St. Elias NP in Alaska form the largest ice field in the world outside of Greenland or Antarctica.

This photo is from my 2013 trip to Kluane.

The Great Ocean Road is one of the top attractions in Australia, and the Twelve Apostles is the highlight of the Great Ocean Road. Unfortunately, there aren’t really 12 of them anymore, and given the nature of the sandstone pillars and how quickly they erode, no one knows how long they will be around.

I’ve had people think that this photo was taken in Thailand. Actually, it was taken on the other side of the world in Alaska!

Starting today I’ll be taking over the Instagram account for @allianztravelus (give them a follow). This week will be featuring famous Landmarks of the World. There will be images, stories, and interesting facts about some of the most iconic places on Earth.

Today’s image is of one that should be instantly recognizable by most people: The Colosseum in Rome (also and originally known as the  Flavian Amphitheater). Completed in the year 80, the Colosse m has stood for almost 2,000 years as one of the largest structures in Rome. Originally covered in marble, much of the covering marble was used for other constructions projects, including St. Peter’s Basilica which was built in the 16th century.

Pro tip: watch out if you get your photo taken with the men dressed as gladiators. They can gouge you for money and the operation is run something akin to organized crime.

Giant’s Causeway is the only world Heritage Site in Northern Ireland and one of three world heritage sites on the island of Ireland.

Giant's Causeway

Jamestown is the capital of the island of St. Helena. It is located at the bottom of a valley because there is almost no flat land anywhere on the island.

St. Helena is best known as being the place where Napoleon Bonaparte was exiled, and as one of the most remote human settlements on Earth. Until recently, you needed to take a 5-day boat trip to get to St Helena from Cape Town. Recently, they have started commercial flights to St Helena which land at their brand new airport. When I visited St Helena several years ago, the airport was still under construction.

I love visiting remote places. There is something about visiting places where there are few people, and where few people have ever been.

This river winds through Gates of the Arctic National Park in Alaska. It is one of the least visited national parks in the US and one of the hardest to reach as there are no roads in the park.

I’m back home briefly after a month on the road. My trip took me to Iceland, Norway, Ireland, Brazil and Argentina. The trip went great up until the point I got a nasty cold in Los Glaciares National Park. The last week has sucked, but I’m mostly over it now.

On Sunday I’m off again to Portland where I’ll be attending the annual conference for the Society of American Travel Writers @societyofamericantravelwriters. After that I’m home for about 24 hours and I’m off again to London for World Travel Market @wtmlondon.

After that, I don’t have a ton of travel scheduled the rest of the year. I’m sure something will pop up and I might just go to somewhere in the Caribbean for the hell of it, but mostly I’ll be working.

Today’s photo was taken in Yosemite Valley in Yosemite National Park, California.

I’ve been quiet on Instagram the last several days because I’ve been very sick. I’m in Salta, Argentina and I came down with a very bad cold when I was in Patagonia. I was caught out in the rain while hiking on a glacier. Toss in the cold temperatures and high winds and viola!……sick.

I’m attending the Adventure Travel World Summit here in Salta and when not at the event, I’ve spent almost all my time in my hotel room sleeping and trying to recover.

End result? Not a lot of activity on Instagram.

I’m feeling much better now, however. Still have a bit of a cough, but other than that, the major symptoms are gone.

I’m here in Salta for 3 more nights and then I head back to US. I’ll be home in Minneapolis for 6 days before I head to Portland, Oregon for another conference. After that I head to London for what I hope will be my last big conference of the year. If you are in Portland or London, let me know if you’d like to meet up.

The Andes are pretty incredible. Taking off today and going all the way north to the other end of the country in Salta. Temperatures will be much warmer. I got a nasty cold here so I’m looking forward to warm weather and sun.

Los Glaciares National Park is the 340th World Heritage Site I’ve visited.

I’m back in New York for under 24 hours. I just got in from Ireland last night and today I’m off to Argentina. While I’m in Argentina I’ll be visiting Iguazu Falls, Los Glaciares National Park, and Salta. I’ve been to Argentina before, but each of these areas will be new to me. Hopefully, I’ll also be crossing into Brazil for the first time ever.

My time in Ireland was very productive. I did the opening keynote at TBEX Europe and the reception seemed very positive. I always enjoy going to Ireland and hopefully I’ll be back a few times next year. Today’s photo is of Skellig Michael, which might look familiar if you saw Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

I’d also like to say a big Thank You to everyone who follows me. Today I crossed the 200,000 follower threshold on Instagram. It is flattering to know that there are so many people out there who enjoy my work. I hope to keep taking photos if you keep enjoying them!

The Haifa Sophia was the largest building in the world for almost 1,000 years. When you compare it to the great cathedrals of Europe which took centuries to build, it is amazing to think that this building was built in only 5 years!

The island of Ulvon along the High Coast of Sweden.

This summer I had the pleasure of visiting the Island of Ulvon, which is a popular destination for Swedes (although few people outside of Sweden seem to know about it). The trip to the island is done via ferry, which can also transport a small number of cars. I didn’t take my car. I parked on the mainland and just went by foot as I was staying close to the ferry terminal on the island.

In addition to being an absolutely beautiful location, I was also able to try Surströmming, which is a delicacy in Sweden. It is fermented herring, and it is one of the smelliest foods on Earth (and I am in no way exaggerating when I say this. Go check the YouTube videos of people smelling/tasting it for the first time). It smells so bad, it is almost always eaten outdoors. It actually tastes much better than it smells. It is the Swedish version of durian.

The entire High Coast of Sweden doesn’t get many foreign tourists, but it is a very popular destination for Sweden, especially in the summer. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site which is noted for being one of the fastest rising places in the world. In geology it is called isostatic rebound. The land is literally springing up from being compressed from the glaciers which covered the land 10,000 years ago. It rises about 8mm a year, which incredibly fast movement for rocks.
