    “All I have for sure is his name- Ketut Liyer- and the memory that he lives in a village just outside the town of Ubud….

    Actun Tunichil Muknal (ATM)

    Visiting the Actun Tunichil Muknal while in Belize was the single best excursion I have ever partaken during my many years of travel.

The craftsmanship and precision used to fit every stone alongside another without even the space to fit something as minuscule as an index card in between, takes skill and wisdom. […]

  • Machu Picchu

    Machu Picchu

    I have a huge chip on my shoulder after learning that the discovery of the Peruvian Historical Sanctuary is another false tale just as the story of Christopher Columbus’ discovery of America. Peru is known for its corn crops; they produce over fifty-five different types. Over a century ago the Peruvian Historical Sanctuary, we now […]

You know where the weather is normally 0-20 degrees Fahrenheit and you’re expected to strip down to your bathing suit. No reason to fret, however. The lagoon temperature averages 99-102 degrees Fahrenheit. Once […]
