Pretty Gritty Tours

We love Tacoma. True, we are full-time professional travel videographers and writers who spend a large majority of our time on the road, but we absolutely adore our town of Tacoma too. That’s why, when I came to Tawny with a long-held dream of mine that would let invest in this city, she was happy to manifest it. Ever since […]

Byodo-In, the Phoenix Temple

When I first came to Oahu with Tawny in 2013 I was entirely at her mercy. This was her island. She was born and raised here, with family still living on the leeward side. I am a professional adventurer however and wanted to make sure that I left no stone upturned. I never expected to find a hidden location that […]

A travel memory come to life

Since I was perhaps nine years old I have had a vivid memory of the most incredible pool I have ever visited. In my memory this pool opens up at one end to a dark water slide. I can hear the rush of the water as it begins to turn into a water fall beyond where I can see. The […]

It should be no secret to anyone that I (Captain) enjoy K-Pop. Some of you may even remember my Pop 10. I’ve risen to the […]

A look at Luxembourg

We really had no clue what to expect when we stepped off our bus in Luxembourg city. This was our first time in the country and we knew relatively little about it. I tend to relish in researching a new destination before we arrive, but with Luxembourg, we were so caught up in our duties at our friends’ wedding that […]

Suprises in Estonia

Helsinki, you were a blur

I have no hesitation in saying that leaving Helsinki is heart crushing- a figurative meat grinder for my heart. In case you’re just now joining us, Tawny and I have spent the last three days in Helsinki, Finland for the Nordic Blogger Experience (NBE), a collection of Europe’s (and some of us from the Americas) finest travel writers and videographers.
