2nd epic tour has been set in motion!

While I've had a great time so far in Malaysia, I've decided that I can't spend all 40 days of my time here in Penang. It's time to explore life beyond this little SE Asian island and start a second epic tour! Do you remember that epic, 5-day tour of the Scottish...

Shape the world into the shape of you

The most beautiful thing I saw at Niagara Falls

There are a lot of fun things to do and see at Niagara Falls. The ferris wheel, the Maid of the Mist boat tours, the zipline that takes you 2,200 feet (670 meters) down to the Falls, and of course, the amazing Falls themselves. There’s even a small, but impressive...
