travel diary: paris, france

Travel is really important to my wife and I. Throughout our relationship we have been blessed with opportunities to see the world and experience new cultures that have shaped us — individually and as a couple. This trip to Paris was no exception. Amy had been wanting to go, and since this year was her golden birthday we were given the perfect excuse (as if we needed one).

We stayed in the Marais neighborhood and traveled by metro, bus, foot, boat, bike, and train to see as much of the city as possible. It truly is a magnificent place. We were awestruck by the beauty of every side street and the grandeur of the gardens. Paris is truly a “must-see” travel destination and we give it 4 thumbs up.

Special thanks to… Air BnB, Alaska Airlines Mileage Program, and Rick Steves’ audio guided museum tours.

#GrownManSelfies

I was recently traveling with my wife, and I witnessed a trend that was so inspiring I decided to start a tumblr dedicated to its existence… grownmanselfies.tumblr.com

What’s even more fun than seeing selfies posted on social media is catching people in the act of taking said selfies… especially when they are grown men. It’s so fun to see technology and social sharing trends become so ubiquitous and multi-generational.

If you think this is as hilarious as I do, please join in on the fun by…
1) Capturing Grown Man Selfies in the act
2) Posting them to social media
3) Tagging #GrownManSelfies with the photo

travel diary: joshua tree national park II

For the second consecutive year my friends and I headed out to Joshua Tree National Park to celebrate my birthday. I couldn’t help but feel extremely blessed to be surrounded by such beautiful landscapes and even more amazing people.

If you ever have a chance to make it out to J-tree, do it. It’s a different kind of national park experience (at least it was for me, being from the Northwest), but I couldn’t recommend it more. The rock formations and endless exploration opportunities which result are incredibly fun. You could go to the same area multiple times and still discover new nooks and crannies you hadn’t seen before.

Below are a few photos that I captured with my iPhone. All are edited using VSCO cam.

travel diary: pacific northwest

A key component to my summer months is a trip home to the Pacific Northwest to see my family and remember how awesome God is through the amazing scenery. My wife and I spent 2 weeks at 2 different lake cabins with 2 different families (hers & mine).

These photos are a result of our trip and time well spent with some of the best people I know. There’s always something special about home. I think it has to do with significance… you are significant for all of the right reasons and none of the wrong ones. Family loves you for you you are, not what you do.

I hope you had similar reminders this summer.

travel diary: san luis obispo, ca

Any time you have a chance to have a San Luis Obispo weekend getaway take it. A wedding took my friends and I up there for a weekend and we made the most of our time. One of the unexpected surprises was visiting the growing community of wineries in the area.

Go. Enjoy. Report back.
