Found at the massive Magellan penguin colony in Port Lockroy, Antarctica, this penguin is not a victim of being Albino. It just has a loss of pigment in its skin. These are very rare and are hard to find on any Antarctica travel ship. The It was quite unique and we were lucky to have a world renowned penguin expert, Frank Todd, on board the ship.

I have now confirmed men wear ugly jeans but I digress.

We also want to inspire you to do the same. If you’re nuts about travel / working virtually / giving back, all the better. We already have a lot in common!
The list of Northern Indian food is somewhat endless however, I have created a North Indian Food Breakdown print-out to be brought with anyone traveling to India.

We recently asked why on Earth would anyone accompany a real criminal into a real prison under entirely false pretenses for a completely illegal tour. Well, we actually did it. From a trip to the police station, to being scammed, to giving up hope, to finding a second-wind, to finally getting in, and then getting out again… it’s all here.
The other day we were talking about our blog with someone. She said: “Not everyone likes to travel.” That statement reminded us that we’ve recently read a few things from people frustrated by travel bloggers/writers who think that traveling is the only way to enrich your life and to face fear. These critics get tired (quickly!) of the “life is a book and if you haven’t traveled you’ve only read one page” mentality.
Aly and John are truly innovative web designers and graphic artists (they designed my website), but more than that, they are great travel bloggers and photographers.
