Top 5…ish Travel Tips

I was going through my usual morning routine today which includes checking my curated news feed of articles relating to everything from travel to drones, to the upcoming Pixel 4 cell phone when one article in particular caught my eye. The headline was something like “10 flight attendants give you 10 travel tips” or somethingContinue reading “Top 5…ish Travel Tips”

Sipping in Chile (Pics + Video)

If there is one thing I learned in Chile, it is that not only am I a wine person, I’m a CHILEAN wine person! —Nick Henderson After what felt like a non-stop, fast paced, blitz through Peru (because it was one) Abbi and I hopped onto a Latam flight and continued further South in SouthContinue reading “Sipping in Chile (Pics + Video)”

Peru…Finally! (Videos + Pictures)

Well here we are again – months between posts because I’m probably the worst blogger on the internet.

That was a mistake. For two reasons, one – I’m on Fiji and nothing here runs on anything other thanContinue reading “Expect the unexpected.”

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.
