You can hear all about our upcoming trip to Uganda and Tanzania in the latest episode of our travel podcast, Episode #7!
For our tenth trip together, we will be traveling back to the place where the roots of our wanderlust were planted and blossomed to a whole new level: East Africa. We will be specifically visiting Uganda and Tanzania and we couldn’t be more thrilled! The motivation to go back to Africa stemmed from the fact that we are traveling at a time where tourism is at its peak yet the weather can be unbearable in many other parts of this world. More importantly, the perk of traveling to East Africa in August would mean the possibility of seeing the Great Migration in person!
We set our sights on Uganda since we have always wanted to observe the Silverback gorillas in the flesh. Sure we’d seen different types of monkeys throughout our travels, but when it comes to gorillas, there is a sense of bewilderment that we have yet to uncover.

Parliament standing tall and proud right along the Danube River. Be sure to reserve tickets if you want a tour of this place.
Divided by the snaking Danube River into “Buda” and “Pest”, the Hungarian capital is one of Europe’s most visited tourist cities. It combines spectacular architecture with an engaging history, and a few days spent exploring its churches, squares, and landmark buildings is a “must” for anyone visiting the region.
Thailand travel video captured with GoPro, visiting places Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Krabi, and Phi Phi Island.
For years I wanted to visit Thailand specifically during the end of the lunar calendar (mid-late November) so that Henry and I could witness their famed Loi Krathong lantern festival. I later learned that the specific festival I was referring to was the Yee Peng Lanna. When the stars finally aligned and we were able to make it out this year, I wanted to make sure our trip was one of the most memorable yet!
Historically, Henry and I had been to more unique adventure travel destinations and I dare say he was bit skeptical about the authenticity of our experiences during our trip considering that Thailand is one of the most visited countries in Asia. With that in mind, I thought: challenge accepted!
We started our trip with a couple days in Bangkok to adjust to the jet lag of our 14-hour time change from Los Angeles. Here we took a water taxi and visited the famed Wat Pho (to […]
A bit outdated (April 2013, but a top-down view of the variety and quantity of photography gear I bring on every trip.

My portable lighting equipment: the Canon 600EX-RT speedlight and ST-E2 transmitter. If I need a constant light source, I use the Comer video light.
I’m not a fan of the slow focusing and bad battery life of the Sony a7R, but it does take some incredible images at 36 megapixels!
