Photo by @jodymacdonaldphoto // Traveling in the Sahara Desert requires a shift in perspective. First impressions would lead you to believe that it is a vast and barren landscape but when you look more closely, this place of solitude has endless beauty. From the sand dunes that are sculpted to perfection by the wind to the animals and vegetation that live within its seemingly impossible ecosystem, it’s a place that will force you to slow down and pay attention to the details.

Photo by @FransLanting Elephants often sleep standing up to avoid pressure from their heavy bodies on their internal organs. But when they are really tired or very relaxed, they may sleep lying down on their sides. I caught this elephant taking a midday nap and she did something I had not seen before. She covered her face with a big floppy ear to screen out light and heat. I love watching elephants; they are so expressive and I always learn something new. If any of you have seen this unusual sleeping behavior I would love to hear from you. Follow me @FransLanting and @ChristineEckstrom for more unusual encounters with elephants. @natgeocreative @thephotosociety #SavetheElephants#Zambia#Elephants#Safari#Wildlife
We're closing off 2018 with a trip to Disney World in Orlando! We decided to take this little vacation with our extended family and it couldn't have been a better time. Let's just say we really needed the break from the Canadian weather 🌞
The biggest difference between the trip earlier this year to Disney World and this trip was definitely the pace. This time around we really enjoyed just walking through the park and really paid attention to the food even more. Last time it was definitely about the rides. We got a table at Be Our Guest, the Nine Dragons, and of course, the Nomad Lounge (obviously!). :::
This year we enjoyed Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party and it was AMAZING. Cinderella's Castle lights up in such a gorgeous ice blue display, and the parade and light shows are so beautiful. It doesn't hurt that the lines at the rides are 5 minutes long at Magic Kingdom! Seriously! Just look at the those gorgeous decorations along Main Street, too. :::
Slowly we'll be uploading new video and photo from this most recent trip. We have some great news coming up which I can't wait to share for the New Year.
How about you are you traveling anywhere new or an old favorite that you like to revisit?
Have you ever visited Milford Sound on a cruise? If so which ship did you visit on?
