On Swimming with the Giant Manta Rays in Kona, Hawaii

I must say snorkeling with the giant manta rays off the coast of Kona also ranks highly in my top life experiences to date.


A Few Days in Chattanooga, Tennessee

I highly recommend a visit to Chattanooga. It’s a beautiful little gem in the South. It’s full of spectacular nature, awesome food, and tons of history. Not only will you have a great time, but you’ll learn something as well.

Visiting Vatican City

Nobody who has been to the Vatican can say that it isn’t impressive. The place is seriously massive and everything in it is elaborate and ornate. If you’re into classical art, you just hit the mother lode. The Vatican Museums are full of masterpieces of painting, sculpture, and other art forms that the popes have been collecting through the centuries.


Today’s post touches on the subject of Admiration, so I wanted to highlight some travelers who I admire. These are people who inspire me in various ways to get out there and make the most of my life and to explore this beautiful world of ours. Sure, we’ve all been inspired by Jack Kerouac and Paulo Coelho, but I’m not trying to go with high literature here. Some of these travelers are famous people you may have heard of, and some you may not have heard of. Either way, these people have contributed to my insatiable wanderlust throughout the years.
