Mount Kilimanjaro Slideshow

Watch our Mount Kilimanjaro Slideshow and enjoy a great song by Angels and Airwaves called “The Adventure”! I climbed Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Africa from August 28, 2006 – September 2, 2006. One of my best friends, Jake, and I scaled the highest summit in Africa and to this day it is one of the […]

A Historic Time for Libya

What a day to be alive! It’s a truly historic day for Libya and the world. A strange day as well filled with emotions for many around the world that have ever been affected by Moammar Gadhafi or witnessed the atrocities that he and his brutal regime committed. I feel a strong sense of connection […]

Hunting Pirates in Somalia

When you think of quiet, easy, relaxed, beautiful beach destinations for a holiday; what’s the first place that comes to your mind? That’s right! Somalia! With long stretches of untouched beaches that curve all the way around the horn of Africa and overlook pristinely clear pirate ridden water in the Gulf of Aden, who wouldn’t […]

Interesting Times in Addis Ababa

My fourth time in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia in the last 4 years was easily the best and certainly the most interesting. Addis Ababa is the fourth largest city in Africa and is also one of the nicest. It has nice and welcoming people; it is relatively clean, orderly and has much less traffic than some […]

Navratilova to Climb Kilimanjaro

I was just reading about Martina Navratilova, the greatest women’s tennis player of all time in my view, started climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro today. She is doing it to raise awareness for cancer, for which she is a survivor, and to raise money for a charity. I am very happy that she is doing it and […]

A Loop Around Asmara, Eritrea

When most people think of Eritrea, they think of negative things-that is if they’ve heard of Eritrea in the first place! It is true that Eritrea has gone through several wars and disputes with neighboring countries-most notably and currently Ethiopia, whom it broke away from in the 1990’s. However, what people who think this don’t […]

Burundi, Malawi and Zambia

The last several days have been wonderful, relaxing and hectic with little food and a lot of travel. I have come from Bujumbura, Burundi through Lilongwe, Malawi to Senga Bay on Lake Malawi all the way through Lusaka, Zambia to Livingstone, Zambia where I am now. I have ridden busses, dilapidated minibuses, flatbed pickups with […]

Gorillas in the Mist

As Charles Dickens once wrote, “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.” I think that aptly describes my experience tracking the Susa silverback gorillas in Parc National des Volcans in Northern Rwanda. It was great fun and it was miserable. It was memorable and there’s much I’d like to forget. […]

Kigali 15 Years Later

I’m not really sure how I want write about Kigali because it is a very beautiful city. It’s quite possibly the cleanest city in all of Africa and certainly the cleanest and safest capital city on the Continent. It is called “le ville des mille collines” or the city of 1000 hills and it is […]

In Search of Idi Amin

Like Rome, Kampala is said to be built on seven hills. Kampala is the intellectual and industrial heart of a country which has been recovering and rebuilding seemingly for decades. A center of political intrigue for much of its recent history, Kampala has been reborn and is forward looking to a very promising future. Modern […]
