Tanzania Breakdown and Travel Tips

Tanzania has been an amazing country to explore and discover and has so much to offer. What I thought would be a once in a life time trip has turned into a place I now hope to return to someday. And I’ve been so inspired by this area, I’ve already planned a tour around all…

Doin’ a Little Deep Sea Fishin’

Making friends in Salema

If you ever have the chance to go to Portugal, I cannot recommend the town of Salema enough. I loved this place so much that I told my dad he had to move there when he retired. It’s perfect for him (as a person who doesn’t travel much) because they all speak English and there’s…
