Susan Sontag said it best when she said “I haven’t been everywhere, but it’s on my list“. And one of the places on my list is Wave Canyon, located near the Utah-Arizona border in Vermilion Cliffs, Arizona. This sandstone rock formation looks so surreal and out of this world, it’s not hard to imagine it as a backdrop in a sci-fi movie. From the vibrant colors to the fluid lines, this place is a photographer’s dream. It is worthy to note that access to the hike is difficult to obtain, so if you want to go, make sure you plan ahead.

Quote: Longing

“I’ve been homesick for countries I’ve never been, and longed to be where I couldn’t be.” John Cheever

Today is one of those days where I read too many blogs, looked at too many pictures, and yearned to be anywhere but here.

Quote: Travel Companion

Great advice Bill Murray gave to a bunch of guys at a bachelor party. “If you have someone that you think is The One..Buy a plane ticket for the two of you to travel all around the world, and go to places that are hard to go to and hard to get out of. And if when you come back to JFK, when you land in JFK, and you’re still in love with that person, get married at the airport.

A great travel companion is the basis of a great life partner. Traveling together, you get to see how your partner reacts under stressful situations in an unfamiliar environment. We certainly had many travel horror stories, like getting stranded in the Atlas mountain in the middle of a snow storm or getting stranded in Thailand in the middle of the 2008 civil mayhem. In both cases, I am glad I had Fausto with me. I knew he was The One after we came back from Greece, our first trip together.
