Since moving back to the United States, I've been having fun exploring more of my own country in the downtime between international trips.

This is Movie Road, in the Alabama Hills of California. The area has been the backdrop to countless films like Star Trek, Iron Man, Django Unchained, and the Lone Ranger!

A few months ago we traveled to the Big Island of Hawaii for the first time. There is soooo much to do there. It feels much more laid back and rural than Oahu.
β€’β€’β€’β€’
If you’re dreaming of a trip to the Big Island, make sure to read my new blog post linked in my bio for tips on things to do there! Volcanoes, waterfalls, sea turtles, and more.

After seven years traveling around the world, I’ve grown accustomed to deceitful taxi drivers, two-faced tour guides, insincere offers of help, and the occasional theft or scam.
β€’β€’β€’β€’
For the most part, the world is a pretty safe place for travelers. I don’t want to scare you too much! However it’s wise to be prepared for the worst, just in case.
β€’β€’β€’β€’
With that in mind, I've just shared my favorite travel safety tips in a new blog post. Visit the link in my profile to learn what they are!

Trekking across the ice as it cracks beneath us...
β€’β€’β€’β€’
It’s a bit unsettling to hear that sound right under your feet! But the ice on Lake Winnipeg is plenty thick. That’s not always the case on a trip to the North Pole, where shifting sea-ice & global warming creates β€œleads” of open water that randomly freeze and thaw depending on the temperature.
β€’β€’β€’β€’
If you want to see what an expedition to the North Pole looks like, I highly recommend @elexplore’s β€œMelting: Last Race To The Pole” on Animal Planet. You can rent it on Amazon Video!

Many of the students are planning their own tough ice expeditions to Greenland, the South Pole, or the North Pole. I was just there to document the training with @citizenwatchus, but I learned a lot too! Now I’ve got dreams of crossing the Greenland ice cap stuck in my head... 🧐

Lake Manyara
This wonderful woman is Narajah, of Tanzania’s Datoga tribe. Known for their blacksmithing talents, the Datoga produce knives, bracelets, and arrowheads out of aluminum & brass with a campfire kiln. 
β€’β€’β€’β€’
Narajah’s husband has 7 wives. Each has her own house for raising their children.
β€’β€’β€’β€’
We all sat down to ask each other questions. Apparently Narajah’s husband gave her 10 cows as a marriage gift. They asked @anna.everywhere how many cows I gave her. They weren’t impressed when they learned all she got was a cat!

Lake Eyasi
After leaving the Serengeti, we drove for hours to Tanzania's Ngorongoro Crater. Along the rim of the crater, Maasai villages like this one dot the landscape. They lead their cows down into the wildlife-filled crater to graze along with all the elephants, zebras, and lions.
β€’β€’β€’β€’
Did you know that the traditional red Maasai cloaks help protect them against predators? Apparently big cats don’t like the color red. I wonder if house cats are the same way… I’ll have to experiment with @poofythefluffycat!

Special thanks to @souloftanzania & @sopa_lodges for an amazing trip.
