  19. mmbrunet@gmail.com' Michelle says:

    Great great pictures, definitely made me want to travel. I saw the video as well, can I ask how you guys managed to be traveling for an entire year? It’s amazing and I hope you can share some saving tips because I imagine that couldn’t have been cheap. Thank you!

    And to Glenn who suggested checking out the vegetarian festival in Phuket, a little warning would have been nice. I googled pictures and I’m sorry I ever did. I have the utmost respect for other cultures, coming from a bloody culture myself (Mexico) but this is disturbing for some people so you may want to be more sensitive next time.

    The world is truly full of wonders, there are so many beautiful places to visit, regardless of the country you visit. Alissa motivated me to get off my couch and explore other cities; now I’m booking a weekend trip to Rome with my husband.

    Great collection of inspiring pictures Dan, the world rocks, but I guess you already know that. When I was in Stockholm, I saw several very artsy metro stations, but I didn’t see the red one shown here. If this post has taught me anything, that urban climbers apparently get all the great shots!

  49. rkale88@yahoo.com' Randy C says:

    Thank you for sharing your great pictures!

    Your video for Alisso inspired me to start taking videos of my wife and make one for her. Again thanks! It shows how much fun to live with your loved one is and she has a great smile!
