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.
Headed off again today with Outpost Magazine to check out the amazing adventure travel spots Malaysia has to offer. White water kayaking/rafting, Scuba diving in Borneo and much more. stand by for updates along the way!
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.
Currently preparing for a trip with a long time friend starting in the Turks and Caicos Islands to Barbados via everything in between. We begin with a lion fish study with the Department of Environment and Maritime Affairs (DEMA) tomorrow AM then we begin to head south hoping to spot the humpback whales migrating through the islands. Stand by for photos of our expedition.
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.
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.
