We love the story that went along with seeing this snowy owl. 📖 While we were scanning the beach, we saw some photographers off in the distance with tripods and binoculars, along with a small white “dot” on the rocks. So, we briskly (very briskly) started walking towards them, when Paul yelled to me firmly, “Stop!” 🛑 Now, when you bird with someone and are with them all the time, you can tell the bird just from their tone! 🎵. I knew that tone was no ordinary “Stop” and immediately thought - I’m not even near the people and the Snowy yet - is there ANOTHER ONE!? And in my frozen on command position, I lifted my head, and about 50feet ahead and on our right, was a snowy just sitting on the rock pictured above! 😮We got some interesting shots including both snowys in one shot, and a pic of photographers with tripods all with their backs to a snowy owl (since they were photographing another!) What a day!!#snowyowl#greatstory#birdingstory#birding#jonesbeachwestend#birdingwithyourbestfriend#birdnerds#birdphotography#wildlifephotography#naturelovers#travelcouple#exploringyourownbackyard
Home is where the Atlantic is 🌴🌺 #Tenerife ~ We just made it back and strolled straight down to the beach. Beautiful scenery with some thick late afternoon clouds coming over the volcano 'El Teide', with thrashing waves rolling over the black warm sand of playa jardín.
All the sites at Mt Solmar left Julie speechless. We should have stayed longer...🤔 This girl could talk to a fence post, in fact I’ve seen her do it a few times. If talking is in the next Olympics I’m going to send her to South Korea to win us a gold medal 🥇🙌🏼
Our year in review continues today with a flashback to February in Costa Rica.
One of the world’s most biodiverse places, we spent three happy weeks here hiking through lush rainforests, steamy jungles, and misty cloud forests on the hunt for birds, bugs, reptiles and primates.
The scenery is also truly epic, with waterfalls, volcanoes and views like this: the great continental divide that runs all the way from Alaska to Patagonia.
Thought we’d say hiii to all the new faces around here with a #fridayintroduction . My name is Amy and this is my beau, Tye. Peaks to Ports is our adventure of traveling from the mountains of Idaho to the shores of the West Indies in search of a greater perhaps…on a sailboat. We quit our careers, sold our house and most of our belongings, stuffed everything else into a storage unit, and moved on to a sailboat to cruise with our pup, Chappie. Oh, and did I mention we’re total newbie sailors? We’d love for you to join us in this crazy adventure! Couple fun facts about us 1️⃣We’re obsessed with Thai food. Gimmie all the peanut sauce and basil. 2️⃣We’re both nerds at heart. We have decent conversations about outer space, aliens and other weird phenomenas quite frequently. 3️⃣We met at the IRONMAN competition in 2013 and on our 5th date we were moving me across the country to Idaho, so we could be together, both agreeing that what we were doing was total bananas. 4️⃣Tye has summited 49 of the 50 U.S. high points and I’ve just been his cheerleader. 💁But we both have a mutual love for the mountains and being active in the outdoors. 5️⃣I’ve been a wedding and lifestyle photographer for six years. My camera and I have a total love-hate relationship. I hate always feeling compelled to capture every moment from behind the lens, even in my daily life, but it’s in my blood. I see everything through a creative eye, and I love sharing my own stories and my client’s stories through photojournalism. At the end of the day it makes me so so happy and challenges me creatively. 6️⃣And lastly keep an eye on our Instastory to see the winner of our Polaroid giveaway! You have until NOON eastern time today to enter! pc: @laurkenkendall
I did apologise for the photos in advance to be fair! I could have spent hours in the Royal Palace - so picturesque!! 😍📷👌🏼✨🇰🇭
O Mini Mundo 🌎 é um parque ao ar livre que surgiu, a partir do carinho de um pai 👨🏼 e de um avô 👴🏻, que resolveram presentear suas duas crianças 👨👨👧👦, a menina com uma casinha 🏡 de bonecas e o menino com um conjunto de castelos 🕍 com trenzinhos 🚞 em um terreno pertencente à família no sul do Brasil. Aos poucos, essa pequena brincadeira foi crescendo, até que nasceu o Mini Mundo em Gramado, uma das atrações mais visitadas da cidade 😍.
No @minimundogramado encontramos importantes obras da humanidade, dentre elas castelos europeus 🕌, prefeituras 🏫, estações ferroviárias 🚉, igrejas ⛪️, torre de televisão, conjuntos de casarios, aeroporto 🛫 e metrô 🚊, além de unidades habitacionais 🏘, comerciais 🏥 e de serviços. Tudo na “cidade em miniatura” do Mini Mundo é exatamente 24 vezes menor que seu tamanho real 😍.

“When travelling with someone, take large doses of patience and tolerance with your morning coffee” - Helen Hayes.
Was there ever a more fitting quote for vanlife? 😂☕️
We are certainly more patient and tolerant of each other’s bad habits than we ever were before the van. Of course, sometimes our patience lapses and we bicker about who brought in all the mud or who knocked over the wine 🙄, but they are not arguments that matter or mean anything, and they’re forgotten 2 minutes later 😄. Living in such a tiny space together, you quickly sort out your priorities and your differences 👫 (though you might still want that fresh dose of patience every morning 😅)
What better way to kick off my new account than with a photo of my lovely bride? Thanks for being my best friend, my love, my wife, and my perpetual model. I love you, @teasacura , and here’s to many more photo shoots, bubble tea, and city wandering!! 😘💃🕺🏻🌃
M: El sir y yo pasamos casi cada minuto del día juntos. Discutimos por qué ver en netflix, nos reímos de las mismas maldades y muchas veces sabemos lo que el otro esta pensando. Inclusive nuestros celulares tienen ambas huellas dactilares (no trust issues) por eso hoy que se va por unos días sin mi 😵me esta dando un mini meltdown 😭😭 Pero subo está foto de días felices 🍕😊
