Flores: Land of the Dragons

We came to Flores on a recommendation from friends who said the diving was some of the best in the world. Nick and I will never turn down an opportunity to dive so we made sure to pencil in at least a week of exploring on the Island. Per usual, we didn’t have a clue … More Flores: Land of the Dragons

Nick: My Journey

My international travels began in December, 1996, when I was 14 years old and went to Australia with a USA Baseball team. I visited Melbourne, Sydney, and Adelaide during that trip and vividly remember being enamored by the sights, sounds, cultural differences and similarities, food and beauty of a new country that was so far … More Nick: My Journey
