Enchanted by Adventure in the Brazilian Amazon Falling asleep to claps of thunder and waking up to howler monkeys calling in the canopy outside my window this August were just fragments of the beautiful dream I stepped into while spending almost 3 weeks in the Brazilian Amazon. Each morning, as the sun slowly reared its mighty head over the lush horizon, I woke up to run along miles of trails that wound in and out of the exotic jungle. Running before the intense heat of midday meant comingling with families of squirrel monkeys, dodging sleepy caimans and watching majestic white herons take flight. During the day we ascended ropes into the dense canopy to gain a new perspective from the tops of ancient Samauma trees and swam with powerful pink river dolphins. We paddled in the quiet off shooting rivers and lakes as the sun started to set and watched as the Milky Way painted the sky....
Cultural encounters were the surprise of our Tanzania Safari When the Kaplan family traveled to Tanzania on our Serengeti Family Safari in June they knew that they were in for some great wildlife. What was unexpected was the people that they met and the cultures that they experienced along the way. "The entire trip was fabulous. The highlight was actually the cultural encounters that we had. I expected the animal part of the safari but our visit with the Bushman was beyond anything I could imagine and my kids loved playing soccer, volleyball, and frisbee with the locals. Our guide Dominic was unbelievable. He was incredibly knowledgeable but was also a truly amazing person. He kept everyone engaged and let things be spontaneous, making time to add to our itinerary where beneficial. We LOVED him! My favorite experience was hunting with the Bushman and learning about their culture. We also had a great interaction with some women in the...

Angkor Wat Voted #1 on Ultimate Travel List The long established travel guide Lonely Planet recently published the "Ultimate Travel Guide," their list of the 500 best places on the planet. While it certainly seems like an impossible question, LP is probably among the best to take on the challenge!  The book is a compilation of the 500 most unmissable sights and attractions in the world, ranked by Lonely Planet's global community of travel experts. Big name mega-sights such as the Eiffel Tower and the Taj Mahal battle it out with lesser-known hidden gems for a prized place in the top 10, making this a comprehensive bucket list! As the program director of Asia I could not have agreed more or been happier with what they picked for the #1 spot: Angkor Wat.  I've had the good fortune to visit Angkor Wat more than once and it never fails to amaze. If anything, this mega complex seems to...
