Professional Photographer for Your Travels
I’ve had a handful of trips where I come back and I have zero photos with me or my travel companions in them! To fix this and to provide a priceless souvenir, Flytographer allows you to hire a photographer at your destination. The package options range from a quick 30-minute session to a more involved shoot.

Speaking of destruction from tourism, Thailand has shut down tourism in three more islands off the coast of Phuket: Koh Khai Nok, Koh Khai Nui, and Koh Khai Nai. With more than 4,000 daily visitors, you can imagine the destruction of beaches and reefs that the traffic can cause.
At the beginning of the month, I spent Labor Day Weekend exploring and eating my way through Houston, Texas! It was a fun trip focused around food, art, and friends. Check out the three posts about Houston here.
Don’t Swim with Wildlife
A kayaker was caught on a drone video swimming with an orca. Now, his act is being investigated by the Department of Conservation as “harassing, disturbing, injuring, or killing a marine mammal” and is punishable by two years in jail or up to a quarter million dollar fine. It is illegal to swim 100 meters of a whale.
