Ending the waterfall series with one of my favorite waterfalls of all time: Havasu Waterfall. This waterfall has it all: hard enough to get to so its not too crowded, a dramatic red rock backdrop, cool blue waters, pools to swim in, and beauty abound. After a hot tiring 8 mile hike this sight is the reward. Only way in is by foot or horse and camping spots fill up months in advance. One of the few places I've visited that I wouldn't mind coming back time and time again! #travelbugseries

I thought that being in the MET Museum in NYC, after it closed to the public for the day, was the coolest thing I've ever done in a cultural institution. But today, @fsbosphorus trumped that when they arranged for their guests (and myself as the trip photographer) to have access to Istanbul's Hagia Sophia when it was closed to the public and completely empty of anyone but a few guards. The looks on everyone's faces were pure awe but none so more than mine. When I was here a few years ago on my own, Hagia Sophia was my favorite of the city's landmarks but the crowds made it tough for me to get the photos I wanted and in the end I just walked around looking at it all. Hagia Sophia has been a public museum since 1935 but it started its long life as an Orthodox cathedral in the year 537. It was then a mosque from the year 1453. Its Turkish name is 'Ayasofya' which I think sounds more beautiful actually than the more common "english" title most know it by. The interior features I love most are the elaborate chandeliers once lit with oil that have since been electrified, the gold tile mosaics featuring portraits of people like Mary and Jesus and the time-worn stone ramps that lead you from the main floor to the upper galleries. These ramps feature huge stones which are so aged that their surface is like that of a newborn baby's skin and when I think of how many people have walked on the same stones I tread, every time I visit, it just makes my head feel like it's going to explode with wonder. I also like the fact that this one structure was deeply meaningful to both Christians and Muslims over the course of the centuries, yet they've found a way to peacefully preserve it for the world to share in now. #FSJet

The famous Tiger's Nest or Taktsang Monastery was the main reason why I went to #Bhutan. A holy site perched on the side of a cliff overlooking the Paro Valley, the Tiger's Nest is truly a legendary spot. The hike to get there is worth the journey on its own, with lots of prayer flags weaving the trail and rickety wooden bridges to cross.

Many of you have been asking about the @VikingRiver boats. They're amazing! Fully appointed with beautiful rooms, multiple restaurant and bar options, a small library and computers, they also include a rad sundeck with a walking track, shuffleboard, mini golf, and lounge chairs. With the small number of passengers and rooms on each boat, service feels intimate and dedicated, and a trip on a Viking Longship kind of becomes an "anti-cruise". The food is outstanding, the staff is wonderful, and the local wines on board make every meal a treat. Add to that the fact that each stop along the way is baller, and all of the rooms include sliding doors to the waterway outside, and we're talking dream travel.

Day 227: Addis Ababa, Ethiopia🌍While walking around Addis Ababa today I thought back to the beginner photography class I took just before I left to travel around the world. (I had zero photography experience.) The class met at a community college once a week for six weeks. I was the only one in the class that didn't own a camera. Everyone would pull out there expensive lenses and equipment and I would just sit there and watch. I can still remember sitting there and telling all the other students that I was going to travel the world as a photographer. They had to have thought I was crazy, not only did I not own a camera, but I didn't turn in any of the assignments because I was worried about what they were going to think of me. I didn't actually learn to much from the class, but I did learn the only thing I ever needed to know about taking photos. The first minute of the first class the teacher pointed to a chair and said, "Here is a chair, you see a chair, he sees a chair, she sees a chair, but a photographer sees unlimited possibilities."🌍🌎🌏Join along as I 📝, 🎥 and 📷 my way around the 🌎 at TravelTall.com.🙏
