Saint Thomas, U.S.V.I
Home. This is the place I like to call my “home base”. Moving here in early 2015 was the greatest decision of my life and what started the snowball I like to call my travel addiction. Kayaking to uninhabited islands, spearfishing and lobstering, relaxing at the crystal clear beaches, bonfires at night. I don’t know that I can ever leave this place.
Cape Town, South Africa
The fact that people don’t have this at the top of their travel list blows my mind. The culture, the people, the food and the things to do here are all incredible. Hiking table mountain one day, going to music festivals the next, road tripping up the georgeous coastline, diving through kelp beds with penguins, shark diving. I can honestly call this place a playground. A insanely beautiful adult playground.
Hot, dry and beautiful. This magical place just north of South Africa is one hell of an eye opening experience. Though there was a horrible draught killing insane amounts of cattle and livestock, there was no shortage of wildlife. Because of this, the areas with water were surrounded with Elephants, Giraffes, Hyenas and Hippos. Cue the Lion King music dammit!!
Ponta Do Ouro, Mozambique
This place was a life changer. So much so that I had to write an article about it Mozambique Experience
Sodwana Bay, Mbazwana
They refer to this place as a “Small Drinking Town with a Diving Problem.” Nuff said. If you’re looking for the ultimate place to get Scuba Certified, this place would be it. Get the most for your money because of exchange rates, and enjoy the caribbean temperature/clarity water. Oh, and enjoy quad bikes? Me too.. and so does everyone else who lives here. The roads are pretty much all dirt, so a “town wide play ground” is basically what I call it.
Windward Islands, Caribbean
In August of 2016, 4 of my closest friends and I decided to take on the task of delivering a 55′ Catamaran, Flying Ginny, down to Trinidad. Starting in Tortola, BVI, this meant we would be sailing 600+ miles and stopping at over 15 islands. The islands included St. Barths, St. Kitts, Nevis, Guadeloupe, Dominica, Martinique, St. Lucia, St. Vincent, Bequia, Tobago Cays, Mayreau, Union Island, Grenada, and lastly Trinidad!
