The Travel Itch

All this talk of traveling has made me itching to get on a plane. So when this happpens, I just look back at some of the amazing places I’ve been:

Me watching the sun set at the Delicate Arch.
Arches National Park, Utah (2001)

This statue, like many Incan artifiacts originally intended for display was completely covered with a thin, gold plate. When the Spaniards arrived, they melted all the gold, kept it for themselves, and exorcised the object by chopping off its nose, and branding a cross by one of its ears.

Tiwanaku, Bolivia
(2003)

Iguazu Falls, Argentina (2003)
Me on a ski lift on the Argentinian side of the Andes (2003)

Isla del Sol y Lago Titicaca, Bolivia/Peru (2003)
Hiking the top rim of Isla del Sol,
the island in which the sun was birthed
according to Incan mythology.


Day 1 of the Inca Trail, Peru (2003). This picture may help you understand why the Incas called this place “The Sacred Valley”. I look at this photo and ask myself, “How can you NOT believe in a God?”

Day 4 of the Inca Trail. Arrival at Machu Picchu.

Chillin’ on the beach in Zanzibar (2004).
