The Fushimi Inari-Taisha is a wave of blood orange gates that sing a melodious song of loyalty. Each gate is one voice in a chorus singing hymnals to the sky. As the music cascades and swells, it sends the gates soaring like a melody up the mountain side to the god of the mountain Inari. This is the best...

For all the hooplah about walking the grounds where the once Emperor of Japan once ruled his kingdom before moving the palace to Tokyo, there sure isn’t much to see. The Kyoto Imperial Palace located in the southern part of the city is nearest to the Imadegawa JR Station. It offers entrance for guests to freely walk the grounds...

At the top of the hill at Boston Common you can’t miss the New Massachusetts State House with her 23K gold gilded round dome roof. In 1795 Samuel Adams, Paul Revere and William Scollay watched as 15 white horses, one for each state in the Union, pulled the cornerstone up the hill containing a time capsule. It was first...

The Volcano House in the city center of Reykjavik doesn’t sell batteries, but they are open on Christmas Day. They are the only place we could find open on Christmas Day in Iceland, when my insulin pump ran out of batteries and we were desperate. That is just the how of why we came to the Volcano House, (you...

After chasing down the Northern Lights unsuccessfully in Iceland four years ago, this unfulfilled dream of ours has never left the forefront of our thoughts. When we read that Tromsø was the one place on Earth where the Northern Lights appeared more than anywhere else in the world, Norway soared to the top of our adventure list. We immediately...

When we traveled to Iceland, during the middle of December and the dark of winter, we had to pick our activities deliberately. With approximately four hours of daylight we couldn’t see everything, it just wasn’t mathematically or cosmically possible. The Golden Circle is 300 kilometers of Iceland’s most popular sites and attractions, including incredible sites that you can’t find...

Across the street from the Granary Burying Ground is Beantown Pub. For some reason, a joke we heard about the pub runs through my head everytime I think about this site: “This is the only place you can get a cold Sam Adams while looking at the cold Sam Adams.” I don’t know that it’s particularly funny, but it’s...

At the time of completion in 1809, the Park Street Church was the tallest structure in Boston. The steeple itself stood 217 feet tall. Until the year 1867 no matter where you stood in the city, or if you arrived from the water, you would be able to see the steeple of the church. Today, the steeple is a...

While touring the Kuranda rainforest in Cairns, Australia (post coming soon) we had our first encounter with the DUKW. This is an amphibious vehicle that puts the all terrain, in all terrain. DUKW is not an acronym, like you might think, it’s actually the manufacturer's factory serial letters. This bad boy can cover any swath of land you throw...
