I ♥ Polar Bears

Without a doubt, if I could come back to Earth as any other mammal, I would be a Polar Bear. Is that odd?! They are just so cool to me. It saddens me that they are increasingly endangered to global warming. These beautiful creatures are just magnificent.

ESTC 2010 in PORTLAND

I had the pleasure of traveling to the great city of Portland, OR for this year's Ecotourism and Sustainable Tourism Conference (ESTC). The conference featured industry experts from all perspectives including destination managers and marketers, travel authors, wild life philosophers, and tour operators. Below, I was pictured talking to Tim Mongin, Housing and Reservations Manager for Travel Portland, the destination marketing organization for the Portland area. It was an inspiring experience, and I can't hardly wait for next year's conference to be held on Hilton Head Island, SC.
