Fantastic Foto Friday: Chobe National Park, Botswana!

Chobe ElephantCrossing

Wildlife in Africa is amazing in many of the national parks. What makes Chobe National Park in Botswana so special is its location along the river. Being able to explore the park not only by jeep, but also by boat, provided us with unique sights, like this huge elephant swimming through the river, a feat that is hard to believe and I’d never seen before!

Fantastic Foto Friday: Sabah, Borneo – Wildlife Adventure


When you watch the Orang Utan play – and observing you in return – you don’t doubt that they share 97% of our DNA, making them pretty close, if orange-haired, cousins!

Fantastic Foto Friday: Galapagos Islands

068 GAL Sealion uw

The Galapagos Islands are a fantastic wildlife destination and a great scuba diving adventure! I experienced my most memorable dive there when we encountered young sea lions who were eager to play! They swam up to us challenging us for a swim and were soon swirling around us, summersaulting and looping! It was truly breathtaking and an image I will never forget!

This is one of the few photos on my blog that has me in it. I still can’t believe I actually jumped over the edge as last activity of the crazy day called Awesome4Some (or Adrenalin4). I politely declined to jump a second time at half price…
