Western Nebraska’s Chimney Rock is the perfect location for an Instagram selfie. Social distancing at its best for your summer vacation. Practice makes perfect. It’s travel photography! Follow our travel pursuits and practice of photography. Travel is education and supersedes the knowledge of any book. With adoration, allow the eye to wander and capture the culture of destinations is our mantra.  What does this photography say to you? 

WHO

We are a novice, we are not perfect we are not the people toting huge camera bags and professional lenses. Strapped with camera phones we capture sometimes imperfectly perfect imagery.

WHAT

No specific initiative. Although we love art, design, architecture, food, music, luxury automobiles, and all things sexy we are passionate about snapping the sensational.

Classic British Horology inspired watches with modern day functionality and reliability.

WHEN

There is no time like the present. There is so much beauty in the world. Get beyond the narcissism of the selfie and pay attention to your surroundings. Your current location is a work of art. Be present and capture the moment.

WHERE

The world is a work of art. GOD made no mistakes. All things are beautiful!

Classic British Horology inspired watches with modern day functionality and reliability.

WHY

Having cared for individuals with physical ailments, pictures serve as sources of inspiration. We continue to focus the lenses in an effort to encourage people to not live with a bucket list.

Getting lost in regions of the world is what we strive to do and to share. The world is smaller than you think. Food, art, design, music, and celebration is always near. Why not enjoy life starting NOW?

The purpose of travel is to learn and be stretched. The stretch allows experiences to become a part of your DNA. The opportunity to see the world is a privilege. In an effort to exhaust the privilege we click to capture a moment while building a lifetime of memories.

The Abaco Club Initiates Hurricane Relief Effort by Pledging $1 Million Dollars

It is no secret that I loved meeting David Southworth and the entire staff at The Abaco Club on Winding Bay. David’s genuine humility vibrates across the property making the boutique property feel like home. While the devastation of Hurricane Dorian is significant, I love the fact that the executives of The Abaco Club on Winding Bay truly exemplify a family style of caring for guest and the entire hospitality team. @JosephDeitch, Chairman of Southworth Development, wasted no time in pledging $1 million to the relief effort, in the hope that it would inspire others to give generously, too.

The Abaco Club on Winding Bay announced today that it has launched a fund-raising effort dedicated to providing immediate disaster relief for the residents of Great Abaco island, which incurred catastrophic damage as a result of Hurricane Dorian. “We are extremely concerned about the safety and well-being of our staff members and other residents of Abaco,” said David Southworth, Founder and CEO of Southworth Development, an affiliate of which owns The Abaco Club. “There is an urgent need for immediate assistance on Abaco, and we are moving fast to provide that assistance.” When the category 5 hurricane made landfall on Great Abaco, it caused widespread destruction. The island’s largest town, Marsh Harbour, was almost entirely destroyed. Most sadly, it appears that there was also loss of life on the island, and hundreds of homes were demolished, leaving thousands of residents without shelter.

“We haven’t even been able to ascertain whether all of our staff members are safe yet,” said Southworth. “Communications systems are still down, power is out, roads are flooded or blocked by fallen trees. It’s a humanitarian disaster on an almost unimaginable scale.” “The people of Abaco are more than just our friends and neighbors,” said Deitch. “They’re like family to us. Both David and I have homes on the island and we cherish our relationships with the people of Abaco. What happened there is a tragedy, and we’re going to do all we can to help.” Contributions to this GoFundMe campaign will be distributed by the Abaco-Winding Bay Relief Fund, a charitable organization created expressly for this effort with 501(c)3 status applied for and pending. All funds received will be used to provide assistance specifically to the people of Abaco in the form of food, shelter, medical aid and supplies, and assistance in the clean-up and rebuilding efforts.

The Ultimate Guy’s Getaway is Green Bay Wisconsin

Of course, the cheese? Yes, Wisconsin is synonymous with cheese. Hence the cheese head uniform isn’t an uncommon theme. Beyond the cliché of cheese and the Green Bay packers which are phenomenal draws there breathes a quaint Wisconsin gem. Green Bay is the oldest city in Wisconsin and the smallest city to host an NFL team.

Perhaps you haven’t been the best friend. Perhaps you haven’t had an opportunity since the  bachelor party to get away with the fellas. More than likely you have neglected the thought of a guy’s trip because everyone has been pursing career goals? Lastly, the role of father can be oh so overwhelming and you find yourself last in pecking order?  Well, those thoughts are done. Since you are busy, we formulated a travel plan and destination that will make jumping on a jet a breeze and  easily persuading to your crew. It’s almost football season! Let’s Go Packing.

Chaads

If you bleed  green and gold you are destined for  sheer excitement. However, if you are not a fan of the Green Bay Packers, you will be. The reasons you will fall in love are cheeses, rich history, filling foods and unparalleled hospitality. Admittedly, I wasn’t that knowledgeable about Green Bay, Wisconsin to include the Green Bay Packers prior to my journey to craft this article. Super Bowl champion Reggie White’s prowess on the field and jersey recognition made me somewhat familiar in years past.  However, the fanatical spirit of Green Bay is immediate, evident  and undeniable upon arrival. Intoxicating paraphernalia greets travelers upon touchdown at Austin Straubel International Airport. Consider yourself  welcomed into the winner’s circle.  

Here is your quick guide to organizing the ultimate guys getaway that will result  in an annual travel ritual to Green Bay, Wisconsin.

Green Bay Training Camp

Get up close and personal with world class athletes. The Packers organization is very unique in comparison to other football franchises in the NFL. The Packers are owned by the fans. You too can be a shareholder of this legacy. Now, this is truly FAN TASTIC! If ownership isn’t enough wow factor, fans and the public are invited to training camps. The Vince Lombardi legacy allowing kids to offer players bike rides to Ray Nitschke field continues today. The pictures of Dream Drive are inspiring, heartfelt  and humbling.  Highlight your journey with the Lambeau Field Tour and stand on the field of champions

Lodge Kohler

Perhaps, you need rejuvenation and relaxation. Lodge Kohler is  literally football field away from the action of the Packers home. This 4-star hotel will have you covered, comfortable and in close proximity to downtown Green Bay. More importantly, the Kohler Waters Spa was designed to treat the mind body and soul. Therefore, if by chance you arise with a hangover from the big game or guys retreat you can restore in peace before departing Wisconsin.

Titletown Brewing Company

Perhaps you will become a fan of Tap Room’s famous cheese curds or drunk mac & cheese pizza. Somehow, I figure you will be making a mad dash for the wide selection of Titletown ales, golds and lagers. Either way the Titletown Brewing Company will not disappoint you and friends. Located at the renovated Chicago & Northwestern Railroad Depot you will find entertainment, the perfect night cap and the best view of downtown Green Bay.

1951 West

Perhaps, you don’t know a fine eatery in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Well now you do. From the signature 1951 west burger to the wild berry chicken salad there is something on the menu to dance across your tongue and delight your tummy. 1951 West serves truly refined cocktails and delicious American cuisine with a staff determined to make you smile.

Ski’s Meat Market

Perhaps you are looking for the best meat to throw on the grill while you are traveling. Well, Ski’s Meat Market has fine cuts of meat and a multitude of brats. Take a tour of this premiere facility and learn all you would ever need to know about meat. Meet the meat people they’ve got the answers for the carnivore in you.

New Zoo & Adventure Park

Perhaps you prefer to keep physically fit or you want to challenge the guys while traveling.  The New Zoo & Adventure park offers dual “racing” zip lining, the aerial adventure course and the climbing tower. Not only will you get to meet over 200 individual animals you can get your adrenaline flowing with some healthy competition.

Green Bay Botanical Gardens

Perhaps you are in dire straits for a moment of peace and tranquility. Roam the 47 acres of horticulture in the spirit of adventure The Green Bay Botanical Gardens is more than a gorgeous backdrop of blossoms. Spend the afternoon learning and absorbing the knowledge to become a better green thumb. Your refreshed perspective will surely encourage you to beautify your personal garden and landscape surrounding your man cave.

The Automobile Gallery

Perhaps you will be lucky enough to encounter  “Red”, the owner of The Automobile Gallery. From humble beginnings, of 1 car wash to owning multiple facilities, William “ Red” Lewis is down to earth and harmed with an infectious personality that will entertain you  for an entire day while touring his showroom of cars. Truly a grown man’s Hot Wheels collection and unlike most museums that are stuffy with rope barriers you will be welcome to get behind the wheel of exotic cars to snap pictures until your heart is content.
