Trekking, Kayaks, Scotch and Wine: Doing Chile Right with John and Nicole John and Nicole just got back from celebrating their birthdays on an incredible 12-day, custom, multisport adventure in Chile.  From trekking in Torres del Paine, to a three-day kayaking trip down the Serrano River, to drinking scotch with ice fresh from a glacier, to wine tasting and horseback riding at the elegantly rustic and luxurious Matetic Vineyards, they truly embodied our Wild Style and then some! "This "trip of a lifetime" was all that, and more!  Pretty much enjoyed every bit of the trip: lodging meals, transfers and guide staff were all great. On day 2 of our kayak trip we were blown away by the grandeur and magnificent scale of the place...truly jaw-dropping. Will Copestake, our kayaking guide, was a joy to get to know and we became fast friends. Weʼve always found the people in Latin America to be very warm, welcoming and FUN. The Chileans were no...
Ebola Update: Southern and Eastern Africa Safari Travel Unaffected Updated as of March 8, 2015 Fresh updates from the CDC and World Health Organization have provided valuable insight into the diminishing Ebola epidemic in West Africa. Reports since January 2015 confirm that the spread of Eboloa has waned in West Africa and never spread into Eastern or Southern Africa.   In regards to travel to Africa, the CDC warns against travel to the affected countries in West Africa. However, for Eastern and Southern Africa, there are no restrictions or warnings (Click here to see CDC’s travel warnings) and no cases of Ebola. It’s important to consider the vast distance between the source of the outbreak in West Africa and where travelers visit for safaris in Eastern and Southern Africa. The info graphics below help put that distance and the sheer size of the African continent into perspective.    Due to the extreme distances and geographical barriers between Eastern and...

Our 27 Years of Rumba Around The World Valentine's Day is our wedding anniversary, so here's a little homage to Anne.     I met Anne at a Bochinche salsa concert at Seattle's annual Bumbershoot music festival. And do you know the first word out of her mouth that she said to me, "No." And the next five words were, "I said, no, didn't I?" (I won't repeat my lame pickup line.) Then on our first date, a picnic in a local park, I forgot my wallet when we were buying some deli items so she had to write a check. In spite of myself, 27 years of rumba around the world since then has spun many tales of romance, adventure, and an ever growing family here in Seattle and in so many friends and families in communities and homes the world over.     In those days when we were just starting out I planned an adventure...

Peru Travel for 2015! Now that the new year is starting to pick up pace, I wanted to take the time to plant the seed of excitement for Peru travel in 2015 and share my experiences from my trip last year. In August, I set out to Peru for four weeks of exploring the contrasting, ancient-modern urban centers, traversing the Inca Trail, piranha fishing and swimming in the Amazon, boating on Lake Titicaca, and eating the best ceviche of my life in a quiet fishing village on the sea, all the while surrounded by warm, inviting and inspiring people. After having lived between Seattle and Argentina for almost nine years, Peru was an exciting window to another invigorating facet of Latin America’s rich diversity.   CUSCO My trip to Peru began in Cusco and it was largely a sensory experience. At 11,150 ft, I recall stepping out of the plane in Cusco and feeling...
