Peru…Finally! (Videos + Pictures)

Well here we are again – months between posts because I’m probably the worst blogger on the internet. My South America trip to Peru and onward to Chile happened last year, in September and October, and I’m only just now writing about it. Now, in my own defense, I did produce a series of videosContinue reading “Peru…Finally! (Videos + Pictures)”

Who is The Roaming Pilot? (Pics)

Honestly I’m surprised at the fact that I haven’t posted this post before. I kind of just dove into writing this blog and I guess along the way assumed that people just “knew” who I was. For those of you that are regular readers you probably noticed the major style updates to the site. Well,Continue reading “Who is The Roaming Pilot? (Pics)”

How powerful is your passport?

Henley and Partners have released their passport strength analysis and, being a travel fanatic and blogger, it made sense to post their link here. Much to mu surprise the US passport is NOT the most powerful passport in the world (it’s still #1 in my heart) but comes in at a rank of #4. LeadingContinue reading “How powerful is your passport?”

The Purge (Dec 4)

Today is our last day at sea before arriving in Tarawa and I now get why everyone has been in such a good mood today. Just like when flying into another country you aren’t allowed to bring in most fruits and vegetables and meat products, definitely not meat products. So began the purge, and itContinue reading “The Purge (Dec 4)”

The Adventure Begins

Today I started on the way to the South Pacific to take on an adventure of a job. What some might call the true last bastion of the “wild west” for helicopters, I was hired recently by Tropic Helicopters to fly on one of the Tuna Boats that was out fishing the region. They sayContinue reading “The Adventure Begins”

Gone Fishin’

A lot of cool things have been in the works for some time now, but I’m happy to say that as of right now, as I’m writing this – I’m officially roaming again. I took a job with Tropic Helicopters flying with a tuna boat. I’m sitting in the airport waiting for my first flightContinue reading “Gone Fishin’”

Chasing the Sky – Why I’m a Helicopter Pilot

There isn’t one of us that accidentally became a pilot. It doesn’t work that way. We see our first airplane, or in my case –helicopter, and we are mystified by it. Our eyes are always up in the sky, especially when we hear that familiar hum of rotors over head. This is my story. TheContinue reading “Chasing the Sky – Why I’m a Helicopter Pilot”

Music, Asiana Airlines, Customs, and Customer Service (Why it sucks in the USA)

I guess it is hard to say that I traveled back to the USA, since it was more a matter of returning to the USA because I had to get back to work. That’s such a bummer! But I love what I do so I’ll get over it. I wanted to close out my timeContinue reading “Music, Asiana Airlines, Customs, and Customer Service (Why it sucks in the USA)”

Spent early Christmas with the Agustin family in Pleridel, Bulacan, Philippines before headed off to Davao to spend our family Christmas there. We spent the entire day in the province and treated 50 kids to gift baggies from the United States, and the best part –Continue reading “Sunset over Bulacan, Philippines”

Samal Island, Southern Mindanao, The Philippines

The Beach, a photo by contactmoment1 on Flickr. Some of my favorite blogs on the internet are travel blogs. Blogs about wanderlust, getting away from “the cycle” and really living life. I’ve been a traveller since my earliest memories and for some strange reason I never thought to jump on this band wagon. Especially becauseContinue reading “Samal Island, Southern Mindanao, The Philippines”
