Through decades of traveling and countless night stays, meals, and experiences, it’s difficult to recall every moment spent abroad. This is especially true for a travel writer like me, who has spent the past 15+ years traveling to 25+ countries. Every day in a new place consists of several meals, a new bed to lay my head down on, new people, cultures, and ways of life. And after awhile it can be difficult to remember every detail. But what’s left is a general feel for the place. I can always remember the feel of a place, the flavors, the character of a destination, but I don’t always remembe ..read more

Experiencing Old Growth Forests of Washington: featuring Best Western

For as long as I can remember, I have loved trees and wildflowers, camping and exploring among the wildernesses of our country. My mom was an avid camper and we often spent weekends among the trees, so naturally, forests have held a very special and very large place in my heart. I’ve long realized I feel better in the woods, from being much more at peace, and relaxed, but what’s more I feel like I’m being recharged and renewed when I’m in a place surrounded by greenery, and when there are little to no sounds of humanity. No cars, no planes, nothing. That’s where I feel at home. Ten years ago ..read more

A Moment of Grace in North Cascades: featuring Ovenell’s Heritage Inn in Concrete, WA

Clouds shrouded the base of the mountain and mist hugged the white caps as I entered the farm lane of Ovenell’s Heritage Inn in the North Cascades range of Washington state. The mountains hid just barely as the sun began its brilliant and colorful show of setting. Blues, purples and subtle teals blended stunningly into pinks, oranges and yellows, painting the mountain in a mystical shroud like an artist’s vision. I drove slow, passing by the laying cattle, thinking about how I’m so grateful to be here now. Months of planning and lead up were followed by years of dreaming of the Pacific N ..read more

​Life has been a whirlwind of new experiences and responsibilities since I became a father in 2019. A year before the pandemic, my wife and I learned we were pregnant, which was a surprise, but a very good one. As with most new parents, we never felt ready, so with the first news we were freaked out and we went through the motions as most do. My lifestyle as a traveler took a hit, and then the pandemic happened a few months after my little boy’s birth. As with everyone in the world, the pandemic halted all travel, grounding flights and scaring everyone to stay in their homes. Being new parent ..read more

“I have arrived,” I muttered to myself, with a deep sigh of relief. After months of planning and decades of dreaming, I found myself in the state of Washington with my head cricked upward as I peered at the towering pines in awe. Finally off the plane and into a shiny new Audi rental car, with only the open road before me. Surrounded by dwindling city and ever taller trees, I put on some Pacific Northwest inspired playlists and faded into the experience. I felt free and clear with endless possibilities. For ten days, I didn’t have to adhere to any schedule, I didn’t have to wake up early to h ..read more

As a nature lover and photographer, I can’t get enough of a beautiful scene, especially if it involves a gorgeous snow-capped mountain, and even more so if the mountain is known for being an active volcano patiently waiting to blast a fiery blanket of ash into the sky. For decades, I had dreamt of exploring the old growth forests of Washington, with the massive trees reaching skyward, air plants hanging from every branch, and blankets of moss littered with fungi. Being from Ohio, we have some lovely forests, but they’re all young growth due to human’s clearcutting everything. I often remarked ..read more

For as long as I can remember, the Pacific Northwest had long intrigued me and has been near the top of my wish list. I’ve dreamt of experiencing the old growth forests and the white-tipped mountains of the Washington, with the massive trees reaching skyward, air plants hanging from every branch, and blankets of moss littered with mysterious fungi. Being that I’m from Ohio, we have some lovely forests and rolling Appalachian foothills, but they’re all young growth due to human’s clearcutting everything ages ago. I’ve long considered the trees in Ohio to be toddler trees, and I've yearned to s ..read more

A couple weeks ago, I found myself in the Pacific Northwest and I was having a perfect day. It was day three of my adventures around Olympic National Park and the Olympic peninsula, and I had just drove back from an amazing hike to Marymere Falls. The day before I drove a couple hours to the renowned Hoh Rainforest and the Spruce Nature Trail, enjoying perhaps one of the most spiritually active places in the world, as those are trails that take you through the old growth forests where the trees reach upwards of 200-300ft and 12-20ft in diameter, and every limb is painted in green air plants a ..read more

Being from Ohio, we have some lovely forests, but they’re all young growth due to human’s clearcutting everything. The trees in Ohio are toddler trees, and I yearned to see land undisturbed by human presence. The years of the pandemic put me off, but after things calmed down, I made sure Washington was the first place I’d visit after the excruciating time off from travel. After a week of adventurin ..read more
