classicnomad Confederations...to The One who captured my untamed heart exactly one year ago. Any dog will readily admit that when faced with the choice of being free or being loved, that LVE wins every time. May the rollercoaster of life and love never cease. I love you, Mas! #vivalavida #Puppylove #wanderlust #loveistheanswer #globalportraits #globetrotter #classicnomads #canine #petsarepeopletoo #love #hope #commitment #life #loveislove 4d

classicnomad Hawaiian paradise. In making logistical travel preparations for the next major journey, we've discovered that Cuba and the Caribbean will most likely be cut due to the unjustifiable extra costs and transportation difficulties (checked with nearly a dozen Caribbean airlines last night...most of whom won't connect the two neighboring islands we had anticipated). Who knew it would be cheaper to take a two week cruise from Brazil to Barcelona (hitting THREE continents) than it is to simply hop next door from Haiti to Havana? 30 minutes tops. Oh well, for the extra two grand that Cuba would cost, we'll be able to travel for two months in half a dozen other nations. Better that one nation shall perish from our itinerary, than an entire continent dwindle from our lack of financial relief. Moving forward... #Hawaii #paradise #Oahu #sunset #wanderlust #travel #travelingram #beachlife #lifesabeach #silhouette #wonderful_places #amazing #vivalavida #globetrotter #stillwonderinghowtoincludecuba 1w

classicnomad The drums of Bengkulu have always been a symbol of the vibrant power and unified community of these tribes in southern Sumatra. I was honored to be crowned the unofficial photographer of this particular evening-long celebration filled with unique performances --which were specially prepared for a regional dignitary visiting the village. As the ONLY Bule [white man] in town, it was also impressive to see the biological father of my university-aged host be celebrated by the esteemed dignitary ...and a bit odd that my host referred to me as "Father!" in the presence of his actual father (it was during these moments that I was grateful his dad didn't speak English). An unforgettable experience to be treasured. When was the last time that YOU witnessed the iconic drums of Bengkulu while everyone in the region was dressed in their best attire to celebrate? I suggest you get that scheduled immediately--you will love it! #Indonesia #Sumatra #bengkulu #drums #tribalcelebration #wanderlust #doyoutravel #colorful #rhythm #music #globalportraits #globetrotter #global_hotshotz #portrait #childrenoftheworld #vivalavida #amazing #celebratelife 2w

classicnomad Padang popularity ...I have experienced kindness and friendship the world over (even in unexpected places which surprised me)...yet nowhere have I been more overwhelmed with welcome than in Indonesia. I hold firm to my belief that it is the friendliest nation --evidenced by the fact that I made dozens (dozens and dozens) of fast friends within my first week in Sumatra. Couchsurfing with teen university students (Recky the Jambi jungle boy & his mountain climbing posse), I was immediately adopted into the student body of Bung Hatta and introduced across campus as the novelty Bule. I have never felt so popular and later was 'transferred' across town to a different university as well). As an honorary member of the Outdoor/Hiking/Camping group, I soon was passed around to other extra curricular organizations (like the English conversation group & the lawyers, among others). It wasn't long before my days were overbooked between clubs and cliques (my Bahasa was nonexistent at the time and I had no idea who was deciding what until translation was provided...my time was no longer my own). It mattered not to ANY of them that I was literally twice their age...eventually, I foolishly explained that I was old enough to be their father. I quickly went from being addressed as "Brother" and was thereafter known by the entire student body as "Father" --which they ALL called out to me about campus and throughout the city. "Hello FATHER!" Even now, scattered across the reaches of half a dozen gorgeous islands, there are countless Indonesians who endearingly refer to me as "Father!" ...an honor I cherish. This photo represents a ladies night out, where I was respectfully treated to a wonderfully western meal (pizza) amidst beautiful company with intentions to improve their English. Life has been good to me generally speaking, but more specifically: Indonesia treated me like a celebrity king. Aku cinta Indonesia! #Indonesia #wanderlust #Padang 2w
