In January 2010 I was fortunate enough to boat across Taal Lake over to Taal Volcano. From there we hiked to the crater and took a moment to enjoy the view...and have a little coconut drink as well.

The Jefferson Pools in Hot Springs, VA is around 200 years old and yes, it is named after Thomas Jefferson who frequented the hot springs. Unlike most natural hot springs, the Jefferson Pools does not smell like rotten eggs (like many other hot springs do) because of the minerals and occasional sulphur. The highlight for me was the Overflow which is basically a small one person natural hot tub with a huge jet. The water is funneled through a small opening which is controlled by an attendant above. You just sit back and relax. The high pressure of the overflow is like a natural back massage.
As thousands of tourists battle lines and each other to get to traditional tourist sites in Berlin, I decided to hit up the impressive and world renown collection of ever changing street art that Berlin displays on her streets.
Some footage I have of Thailand edited to Mark Farina's "Dream Machine." Locations: Bangkok Chiang Mai Ampawa Market The name of the temple in the opening shot is Wat Arun (Temple of the Dawn). Thought I would shoot it at sundown instead.
Trying new and different foods is a must while traveling. While I was in Manila, I had fish ball, which literally is deep fried fish ball dipped in a sauce. Is it really fish? I don't know, what is it made of? Good question.
There are less than five places in the United States where you can enjoy the ancient sport of falconry and The Homestead in Hot Springs Virginia is one of them. It was amazing to see these birds of prey up close and watch them simulate hunting techniques you would normally only see in the wild...if you are lucky enough. In this video we got to see a Lanier Falcon, Harris Hawk and a European Eagle Owl.
Tara and I found out that there are Laksa stalls that are vying for the title of "Best Laksa." Laksa, is a coconut-based curry soup. We found this pretty intruiging so we decided to find out for ourselves not knowing exactly what we were getting into
On a recent trip to The Homestead, Eduardo and I were fortunate enough to go for a round of sporting clays. I had never shot a gun in my life before and never understood why people were into it until now.
Wororot Market (pronounced Wololot), sits next to the Ping River in Chiang Mai and is a massive labyrinth of stalls selling just about everything. On this particular day Marisa Marchitelli was showing us around and we happened to stop by a fabric store.
I know this is not a travel video, but, after being holed up in my Washington, DC apartment straight during the recent snow storms (aka. Snowpocalypse 2010) Griff came to pick me up in his Toyota 4 Runner and to my horror, cabin fever had a grip on him as well. This is in DuPont Circle in Washington, DC.
While in Singapore, experiencing the joy of Pepper Crab is not only a must but, as you can tell from our host, an eventual addiction. The only thing slightly less fantastic than the pepper crab was Paul's pure excitement.
