Tyler & Jess


I met Tyler 4 years ago when we began working on the World Domination Summit team together. He is has a popular blog Riskology, where he inspires his readers to lead a more adventurous life. One adventure he decided to take part in was entering the world of online dating… he was curious and thought […]

Turkey, Israel, Egypt


So the moment we realized our bag was stolen- and the contents of the bag- we had a decision to make. I told Wes, there is no way we could get on this cruise. We sat for a while and he finally looked at me and said, “Tera, my 60 year old self tells me […]

Amsterdam, London, Barcelona, Rome


I am finally mentally ready to share our last adventure with you. If you read my last post, you know that this trip was filled with some interesting circumstances and hardships. We had the privilege of being in New York during Hurricane Sandy, got sick in Amsterdam, had 90% of our equipment stolen in Rome, and got […]

Patience. Failure. Lessons.


The following was written on November 10: “Wes and I shoot events for entrepreneurs/business coaches, in fact, that is what took us to New York. We were shooting/filming an event for Marie Forleo, a brillant female entrepreneur who is inspiring women to dream bigger. At these events I always hear about failing. I hear stories […]



I once was reading an article about husbands and wives who work together. Yes, there is a whole world of us who spend 24/7 with our spouse (and I happen to be one of those who love it!). The author recommended taking a vacation once a quarter to get away and just be with each […]

Chelsea & Steven


I don’t know why I connected so quickly with Chelsea and Steven. Maybe it was because it was actually Steven who called me for the first time to ask me about shooting their destination wedding in Belize… and I LOVE a groom who is involved with helping his bride. Or maybe it was because when […]

Aki & Aya


I am finally to the last blog of our trip.. and to the whole reason we planned the trip to begin with! When Wes Wages arrived for the first time at his dorm at UNA he noticed the names on the front door Akihiro Seishiro (another Japanese name they can’t remember) Wes Wages He knew […]

Tokyo & Kyoto, Japan


Arriving in Japan was like stepping 100 years into the future… especially coming straight from Thailand. The buildings were tall and clean. The people no longer had on baggy pants and old t-shirts… only crisp suits and shined shoes. It took me a minute or two to get use to it. Tokyo is the largest […]

Phuket & Krabi, Thailand


We arrived in Phuket, Thailand the day after we left the Elephant Nature Park. We immediately checked into our fabulous hotel. When we travel, we always try to keep things as cheap as possible… so we booked the cheapest room in nice hotel. This was the one place I wanted to splurge on something other […]

Love. Loyalty. Freedom.


  We walked into the entrance and it took my breath away. My brother-in-law, Chris, has had his far share of travels (he will have visited every country in the World by next April) and he knew the exact hotel we would need leaving the park. We entered Rachamankha Hotel and I definitely felt like royalty […]

Songkran Festival


Can you imagine walking out your front door and immediately being hosed down with water… buckets dumped on your head, or a truck driving by squirting you with water guns. Before you even make it to your mail box you are completely soaked. Well, for a week in Chiang Mai, Thailand, that is exactly what happens. The […]

Kuet Chang Village, Thailand

kuet chang thailand

I totally rely on Tera for this blog, as it’s been more than likely years since I’ve posted… and that’s probably a good thing because she is pretty amazing at what she does!   She wanted me to post on the village near The Elephant Nature Park, because sadly, she didn’t make it. Earlier in […]

Working at the Park


Sorry it has been so long since we blogged, life has been busy and a little interesting… I’ll be honest, I never knew how much attending elephants needed. As a group, these sweet peas eat 2 tons of food – per day. Yup, per day. Each piece of fruit is hand washed to remove any […]

Day 2 at Elephant Nature Park


This day was one of the most magical days of my life… waking up and hearing elephants talking to each other makes you feel so special inside. Dogs on the other hand is a different story…. there are 218 dogs here at the park. They were rescued from the floods in Bangkok in the fall. […]

Chiang Mai, Thailand


I am currently sitting here blogging beneath a canopy of trees, watching two elephants interact with each other in a way I have never seen animals act. I am so full of joy I could just sit here and cry. But if I cry, I can’t see the elephants, so I will save it for […]

Thank you. Killarney, Ireland


Well, this is it. The last little baby Ireland post. Wes and I just wanted to take a minute and thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Thanks for supporting us, following us, loving us. We are so thrilled to share our lives with you. As interesting, or boring as it can be sometimes. […]

Love. Killarney, Ireland


This day was amazing. Truly. I think this is a great blog post to explain some things. Sometimes people question Wes and I about why we travel. What is it? Well, we love the adventure, the scenery, the new experience. But for us, it is so much more than that. It is renewal. It reenergizes […]

A port city. Cork, Ireland


To be honest, there isn’t a whole ton to say about Cork. This is the first day that it rained, which we are so blessed for. Typically it is overcast/rainy most days. We have seen lots of sun, which we are so thankful for. As soon as the sun goes behind a cloud it is […]

The Dingle Peninsula


When planning our trip, one word we kept hearing over and over again was Dingle. Everyone said, “Are you going to Dingle?” And I can see why. This was the perfect day trip from Killarney, and such a romantic drive. It felt like I was driving up Highway 1, but better. We parked & hiked […]

Crystals & Lighthouses. Waterford, Ireland


I’ll be honest, when planning my trip to Ireland, Waterford really isn’t even on my map… but when my mother, who in my opinion is the epitome of class, asks when we will go and visit it, I know I must make it on the itinerary. My mom is seriously the classiest woman I know. She is in […]
