Photo Story #1: Entering Monument Valley

Photo Story #1: Entering Monument Valley

For the last few weeks I have been thinking about adding another weekly series to highlight one of so many beautiful pictures I have taken on my travels. After all, why should panoramas have all the fun? www.youotterknow.com/site/ respond And yesterday, while I was spending heaps of time editing this photo I took as I was approaching Monument Valley, I finally decided to do it. So I give you the very first Photo Story – a cool picture and a little “behind the scenes” scoop on it. After I spent a full day in Page, AZ checking out the Lower […]

First Couchsurfing Fail. Or Was It?

First Couchsurfing Fail. Or Was It?

I am in love with couchsurfing. If you know me, you probably already knew that. And in over four years of using the service, I have nothing but positive experiences using it to both host and surf with people all around the world. That is, until I got to Vegas as part of my epic road trip. For those not familiar, couchsurfing is a web service that connects like minded, i.e. travel-crazy, people by letting them either “host” another traveler if they have a spare bedroom, couch (hence the name), space on the floor, etc, or “surf” (stay) with other […]

Alabama Hills and Awesomeness of Instagram

Alabama Hills and Awesomeness of Instagram

Being stuck in a tiny town of Lone Pine after my car broke down going through Death Valley, I was anxious to do something. Anything. Sure, it was nice to rest for a couple of days, but doing nothing got old pretty quick. So, after visiting Lone Pine film museum, one morning I decided to get adventurous and head over to Alabama Hills for some hiking and to see if I can find some of the spots where famous cowboy westerns were shot. After all, the Hills were only three miles away from Lone Pine, so I figured I would […]

Case of the Mondays #27: Bryce Amphitheater

Case of the Mondays #27: Bryce Amphitheater

Another Monday, folks! It’s been quite a week since the last Case of the Mondays update. The car has been fixed (more or less), I got out of Lone Pine, got stood up in Vegas, checked out Zion National Park and last evening got to Bryce Canyon National Park. Show must go on! And it went on, alright! Today, I have a special treat for you – a panoramic view of Bryce Amphitheater I shot last night. I have seen quite a few amazing, astonishing and simply mind blowing things on my travels. And so far the little I have […]

A week in Lone Pine, CA

A week in Lone Pine, CA

Lone Pine, California – the name itself implies a not-so-happening place. Yet, that was the place I spent the most of my time in during this two months long road trip. It wasn’t by choice thou – my car broke down as I was trying to go through Death Valley and Lone Pine was the closest place with an auto shop. Calling Lone Pine a town would be a stretch – with one main street along Highway 395, it is mostly a collection of motels and restaurants catering to the passers-by. In fact, Wikipedia refers to it as a “census-designated […]
