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...

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...

PostCards from the World, My Dreams of Peace We believe in the power of travel to create understanding, brotherhood and peace on the planet. This is a really wonderful project that many Wildland family travelers, young travelers and teachers might be interested in participating and supporting. TIMOTCA, in partnership with Artsonia and Teachers Discovery, is connecting thousands of teachers around the world to have their students share “PostCards From The World, My Dream of Peace”. Creating small original art works, this project celebrates the creative spirit that is within all of us and has the power to change the world.     TIMOTCA, a nonprofit organization founded in 1980 launched the project to foster peace and cultural understanding through art and to build a Peace Monument and Cultural Center presenting the visual and performing arts of every country on earth. What a great project!      Art Beyond Borders is the first collection of postcards from 60 different...
I recently set out on a two week reconnaissance mission to Morocco with the objective of searching for new routes and making deeper connections with the locals. I accomplished my goal and we are excited to announce we have redesigned our trips to Morocco, including new expert local guides who are your personal connection to the people and places you visit. Also expect to see plenty more photos and incredible stories from my trip to Morocco.   This was my second trip to Morocco, but the difference this time was the accompaniment of a local guide. With his help I found some extraordinary places which gave deeper insight into the culture, traditions and history of this marvelous country. From incredible adventure activities like sandboarding in the Sahara to authentic cultural experiences such as dinner with local Berbers, it was truly a trip of a lifetime. I sincerely hope everyone gets the chance to...
  Dreaming of exploring Peru this summer but still haven’t made plans? You’re in luck, because for a limited time, we are offering an exclusive discount of $250 per person for the remaining spaces on our Escorted Trek to Machu Picchu + Virgen del Carmen Festival!
