Lobstering is a way of life on the Maine coast, and as one of the primary sources of income for many people in the state, piles of lobster traps are ubiquitous signs of life. Taken between Bailey and Orr’s Islands, July 2014.

Probably one of the most iconic views of the Maine coast, these rocky granite scars have withstood millennia of abuse from the sea. Originally carved by glaciers, the granite cliffs now protect homes and light houses.

"The Maine Lobsterman" does his work in the shadow of the Little Mark Island Monument. With hundreds of islands dotting the Maine coast, light houses and stone towers once helped captains navigate these treacherous waters. Today, the statue and the monument stand testament to the resiliency of Maine and her citizens.

There are tiny corners of silent, beautiful decay on Bailey Island, Maine. This boat sits on the shore of a small harbor, abandoned by the local lobstermen to time and nature.

Maine is as patriotic a place as anywhere else in the U.S., even at land’s end. This palette was painted by the people who run the Land’s End Gift Shop on Bailey Island. It was a striking bit of Americana in New England.

A First Timer’s Guide to Visiting Maine

Maine Adirondack ChairsSummertime is Maine Time.I love living in this state, despite some of it’s minor downfalls (hey, every place has it’s grittier side, no?). Maine is one of the best tourist destinations in the U.S., and for all the reasons you can dream of, and more. Yes, we have lobster and rocky coastline and miles of hiking trails, but there’s more to Vacationland than you think. Here are some of my favorite…

Flamingos and Elephants on safari at Disney's Animal Kingdom

Flamingos and Elephants on safari at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

I’ve been thinking a lot about our trip to Disney World and what some of the experience has meant to me. Sure there are the rides and the food and the fun fantasy that makes Disney World what it is. But what’s really stuck with me is the experience in Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

I’ve never really thought much of visiting Africa to go on safari before. It just wasn’t something that stirred my feelings of wanderlust. But after visiting Animal Kingdom, something in me shifted, and now I have my eyes set on Southern Africa.

Here’s the thing: Animal Kingdom tries its darndest to straddle the line between the fantasy that Disney World is supposed to offer its visitors, and the reality of the biology and physiology of the environment these animals come from. This struggle showed its cracks to me throughout the visit to the park. The Disney artifice was there, but I could feel the intent the park’s creators had in building a park that was a bit more educational than the others. In the end, I have to really applaud the Disney Imagineers for what they’ve managed to pull off in the form of Animal Kingdom.

After all, it’s gotten me to seriously consider how to experience the real Africa.

Almost like being on a real African safari! I can only imagine, since I’ve never been, but it was easy to lose yourself on this Animal Kingdom safari at Walt Diseny World. Getting this close to a giraffe was stunning. My only complaint is that the drivers really fly through the attraction (understandably, with all the crowds), hardly ever stopping. But if you get to the park early enough, I can’t recommend the safari enough. 

I’ll be finishing up with my Disney Honeymoon photos this week, and on to some #Maine pics soon!

7 Ways to Be The Best Traveler Ever!

7 Ways to Be The Best Traveler Ever! #travel #ttot #lp #ngtradar ||

Touriste perdue / Lost tourist woman by Jean-François Gornet  on FlickrIt’s July, and in the U.S., travel season is in full swing. People are readying their cars and their plane tickets, packing their bags, and as soon as schools let out for the summer, they’re off on amazing adventures around the world. I’m sure you’re one of those travelers. I know I’m one (even I have to wait for school to let out, since the Wife is a school teacher).

There’s nothing wrong with…

Better known as the “Giant Golfball,” Spaceship Earth is one of my favorite attractions at Epcot Center in Walt Disney World. Yes, there’s actually a ride up inside that thing, and it detail’s man’s journey through time and his advancements in technology and space. It’s a slow ride, but it keeps your attention the whole way throught. #disney #disneyworld #disneyhoneymoon #waltdisney #waltdisneyworld #igers #igtravel #travel #travelgram #travelblogger #travelphotogapher #travelphotography #wanderlust #Epcot #SpaceshipEarth

Animal Kingdom features all kinds of interesting shows throughout the park. This one, called Flights of Wonder, showcases exotic birds from around the world. The staff has them trained pretty well, including this hawk who flew to his handler and back, within ten feet of where I was sitting! #igers #disney #disneyworld #disneyhoneymoon #waltdisney #waltdisneyworld #instatravel #igtravel #travelgram #travelblogger #travelphotogapher #travelphotography #travel #wanderlust #latergram
