Spent a few days in Almaty in early 2018 in the winter. It was my first time in Central Asia, and it was so bitingly cold we had to keep stopping for coffee & tea while walking around even mid-day. It was a very interesting place, and one could just see so the development and potential and energy of the place.
Some more photos from the rest of our day in Porto! Charming from morning to night.
We had a quick stop in Porto earlier this year before heading on down to Lisboa. It is such a wonderful, charming little town.
Weekend trip with our awesome friend Monica! We all wanted to do this for a while, and it didn't disappoint! I think most people don't realize how much snow dumps on Japan every year (the three snowiest cities on earth are all in Japan).
Just a quick stop during our drive through the forest. Finding the forest wasn't that hard, but once there we had no idea where the good spots to stop were!
I met my family with my wife in the South Island, and this is one of the walks we did. What a beautiful country! I missed this part when I last visited nearly a decade earlier, so it was nice to share the scenery with family.
