Ultimate Motorcycle Road trip…

I’ve just arrived back in California and met up with my good friend George Stroumboulopoulos and we started prepping for a motorcycle road trip that leaves from Santa Monica, California and ends in Toronto, Canada. We will be riding up the west coast exploring every interesting site we can find along the way (suggestions of must sees welcome!) and then taking a ferry from Washington State to Vancouver Island. From there we make our way east to Toronto. Stand by for updates and photos.

Diving in the Caribbean

The past few weeks my good friend Rob and I have been traveling throughout the Caribbean starting in Turks and Caicos and heading south to where we are now in Barbados. Our goal, other than have the trip of a lifetime, was to try and see as much of each island we landed on above and below the water in the short time we had to do this. Our first stop was in the British Virgin Islands (BVI’s) and it was absolutely spectacular! The islands are incredible and the underwater life is abundant. The BVI’s is a sailors paradise, with hundreds of sailboats of all sorts out each day touring around the islands. But the underwater life is really what drew us there and more specifically a ship wreck that Rob has been dying to dive on since he started diving at the age of 14, the wreck of the RMS Rhone. The Rhone sank in 1867 in a hurricane and lost 123 lives, only one man survived. It was labelled as the first ever unsinkable ship and after the disaster of the Titanic, also deemed unsinkable, there has never again been a ship called unsinkable. Image

    We then travelled to Dominica where we saw some of the most incredible coral reef’s bursting with sea life that I have ever seen. There wasn’t a single dive that we didn’t see an incredible amount of different species anywhere from Eels to Frogfish to Seahorses and many many more. It was truly a scuba divers dream come true. To top off the time in Dominica we managed to get out on the water to spend several hours with Sperm Whales and also head up the volcanic mountains to experience lush rainforest, breathtaking waterfalls and natures hot tub, piping hot natural hot springs. It was by far one of the most amazing places I’ve ever experienced. 

    We have just landed in Barbados and today is our first day on the island but from our drive from the airport to where we are staying I have no doubt this place will be just as exciting and incredible as the last few. Image

Lion Fish Capture Study, Turks and Caicos Islands

Yesterday I with my good friend Rob took part in a lion fish capture study with the Department of Environment and Maritime Affairs (DEMA) and Turks and Caicos Reef Fund (www.tcreef.org)in the Turks and Caicos Islands to study some different capture techniques. Lion Fish are an incredibly invasive species of fish that have managed to find there way to the Caribbean from the Indo-Pacific and are definitely doing a number on the local populations of reef life here. Culling them is one way to ensure that they don’t kill off many the indigenes species of the Caribbean. Image

Sumatra

It’s been a long time since I’ve updated my blog. I have since been traveling the Canadian Arctic with Outpost magazine in search of what they again proved to be the elusive Narwhal and I’m currently in Sumatra for 1000 Days for the Planet TV series filming Gibbons, Orangutans, Elephants and the extremely endangered Sumatran Rhinos. There is an amazing vibe which is very present in this country between the people and the incredible wildlife and landscape.

A Year Since the End of the World, (Bouvetoya)

It’s been a year to the day now since I went to Ushuaia, Terra Del Fuego, getting ready to set sail to the most remote uninhabited island in the world. We spent 33 days at sea in the SubAntarctic Ocean traveling first around Cape Horn, then on on to South Georgia Island and later onto Bouvetoya to be the first of a handful of people to climb the remote volcanic rock and glacier. It was a trip of a lifetime and one we will always remember. Stand by for info on the film which will be out shortly. GoProGentu
