Nature and the Wall

Daily Photo – Nature and the Wall

This is most of what the Great Wall of China looks like as nature reclaims itself. I took this with a drone while we slept in one of the old guard towers.

The Biggest Pool in the Southern Hemisphere

Passport Sunday…

… will now be Passport Monday for this week. Sorry for the delay!

Daily Photo – The Biggest Pool in the Southern Hemisphere

When I was here on Laucala Island things were pretty sweet! It’s probably the nicest resort I’ve ever visited and I was completely blown away the entire time. I hear that this place has the biggest pool in the southern hemisphere and who am I to question that? It’s more than big enough to have a pool party. Everyone thought I was pretty cool in my arm floaties.

Mini-Island in Wanaka

Daily Photo – Mini-Island in Wanaka

I flew my drone out as far as I could to get this image. I think you can go camping out here at night… that sounds incredibly fun and romantic. I’d love to give it a try. That reminds me I need to get all new camping gear because the stuff I have kinda sucks.

Tane in the Pool

Daily Photo – Tane in the Pool

While we were in Langkawi, each of us had our own pool for our rooms. How cool is that? We would always have arguments… like he said, why don’t you come to my pool. And I was like no way man. I’m not getting in your filthy pool. Get your skinny ass over to my pool and get it all dirty with your dirty dirty body and then Tane was like, okay.

Droning over Waiheke Island

Daily Photo – Droning over Waiheke Island

What a beautiful little island this is? For those of you that don’t know, this island is just a short ferry ride from Auckland in New Zealand. It’s not a huge island, but big enough to hold a bunch of houses and some little towns. This is also a favorite place for some of the wealthier Kiwis to have a second home that they vacation to.

Over the Baths

Daily Photo – Over the Baths

I had a great day out here with the kids after a long hike. I believe we were on one of the Disney cruises and we decided to do one of their little excursions here on Virgin Gorda. It’s one of the most unique swimming locations in the world because of these giant granite boulders… I wish I could go back in time and see a timelapse of how this whole formation came to be.

The Lagoons in Gisborne

Hilarious South Park Behind the Scenes

God these guys crack me up… This human centipede episode is one of the best. It’s really about automatically accepting all the Terms & Conditions on Apple products, where you really don’t know what you’re agreeing to.

Daily Photo – The Lagoons in Gisborne

It’s always a bit frightening to fly a quadcopter out over the ocean. I don’t know why. If it’s gonna fall out of the sky, it will be ruined anyway from this height. Anyway, whenever I am out over the ocean and shooting back towards the land, I’m on an even higher-alert.

Singapore from Above

Daily Photo – Singapore from Above

I think this looks a little bit like a bra for two very different breast sizes. I don’t know why I see that… probably a bit of Rorschach. It actually wasn’t too easy to get to this spot to take the photo because it was pretty much at the limit of the quadcopter. I kept losing contact with the quad and it would start to fly home automatically. Frustratingly, I had to keep taking control and forcing it to go as far as possible.

Morning in the Bird Lagoons of Gisborne

Daily Photo – Morning in the Bird Lagoons of Gisborne

Most of the days in Gisborne were quite moody and full of rain, so as soon as there was a clear morning, I got out the quadcopter to see the beauty from above. On this farm, they created this sanctuary for all sorts of waterfowl. It was quite magical to walk around and hear all the native New Zealand birds going about their business on a calm morning.
