If there is one thing I learned in Chile, it is that not only am I a wine person, I’m a CHILEAN wine person! —Nick Henderson After what felt like a non-stop, fast paced, blitz through Peru (because it was one) Abbi and I hopped onto a Latam flight and continued further South in SouthContinue reading “Sipping in Chile (Pics + Video)”
It’s an age old question, since the introduction of color photographic materials people, photographers, and nit-picky mothers having photos made of their kids have debated this point. So which one is better color or B&W photography?
Last year I tried to keep summaries for each day of HeliExpo and post them up here, that would end up proving to be a really tough task. It was my first HeliExpo and I made the naive mistake of thinking that I would have anything that resembled free time during the week. My daysContinue reading “HAI’s HELI-EXPO 2015 (part 1)”
Wow – so first I need to seriously re-examine my posting schedule for this blog. It’s crazy, I have become swooped up in so much I keep glazing over this and I apologize. Not that there are a TON of you following The Roaming Pilot yet…but all the same. Anyways, the other day I tookContinue reading “Flying from Grant County to Seattle”
I guess it is hard to say that I traveled back to the USA, since it was more a matter of returning to the USA because I had to get back to work. That’s such a bummer! But I love what I do so I’ll get over it. I wanted to close out my timeContinue reading “Music, Asiana Airlines, Customs, and Customer Service (Why it sucks in the USA)”
The other day I went out of Manila up into the Tagaytay Province to visit a pretty hot tourist spot – The Taal Volcano. It was an interesting day but not for the reasons you might think…
So I am not really big on the whole resolution thing. It doesn’t make sense to me to sit down once a year and make a resolution and then what? Most people don’t even remember them a week after they made them and even fewer people actually keep them. Now, that being said I am huge on goal writing, I think you should always be writing down goals. Short term, long term, really long term, you need those things written in pen on paper and folded a dozen times in your pocket as you roam the world.
And you need to keep updating them, modifying them, deleting the ones that aren’t any good or don’t strike your fancy anymore. I do it all the time, but unlike most “resolutionists” I actually keep and achieve a good sized percentage of mine. In looking at goals over the last few years I would say I have about a 70% completion rate. Doesn’t sound like much unless you know how many goals I set. Not hitting that other 30% doesn’t cause me a moments worry.
I dream big, I goal big, and here are my top 10 goals for 2014
The Beach, a photo by contactmoment1 on Flickr. Some of my favorite blogs on the internet are travel blogs. Blogs about wanderlust, getting away from “the cycle” and really living life. I’ve been a traveller since my earliest memories and for some strange reason I never thought to jump on this band wagon. Especially becauseContinue reading “Samal Island, Southern Mindanao, The Philippines”
