PHOTO FRIDAY #8: View from Cerro Otto

There are few places on earth more majestic than the Patagonia region of South America. The northern limits of Patagonia (inside Argentina) begin with the picturesque  paradise of San Carlos de Bariloche. This aerial view was captured high above town, following a casual 7-minute chairlift ride to the top of Cerro Otto. The panoramic below reveals thick pine forests, 'alpine' architecture, and the turquoise hues of Nahuel Huapi Lake. This is the Switzerland of South America!

PHOTO FRIDAY #7: Copacabana

An afternoon stroll along Copacabana Beach in the breathtaking metropolis of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil: soccer in the sand...surfing in the ocean...and samba in the streets. Rio is sure to be an exhilarating host to the 2014 FIFA World Cup and 2016 Summer Olympics! O Brasil é lindo maravilhoso!

PHOTO FRIDAY #6: Amsterdam at Night

Amsterdam is a popular connection from the United States into Europe thanks to frequent and comfortable flights aboard KLM. I had the chance to visit the Dutch capital during the summer of 2012 en route to Nairobi (eastern Africa). I extended the stop in order to capture a few images of iconic street scenes and local culture. The warm waffles drizzled in chocolate were amazing, while the hot fries dipped in mayonnaise were a one-time treat. The overcrowded coffee shops offered unique 'herbal' aromas, while the red light district offered much, much more...but not to the imagination. With its picturesque canals, historic museums, neon-lit avenues, and mounds of parked bikes, downtown Amsterdam is a charming location for families, couples, and even globetrotting singles.

PHOTO FRIDAY #5: Luces de La Boca

Just another iconic landmark from the cobblestone streets of La Boca. One more reason to love - and visit - Argentina and its bustling capital of Buenos Aires...the 'Paris of Latin America'.
