Cleveland surprised me in almost every way, and at the heart of my experience there was where I called home for a couple of days 
Massive changes are underway both in Cleveland and at The Ritz-Carlton, Cleveland that should make everyone excited to visit this iconic hotel.

Why Reykjavik is always my reference point when I visit Iceland 
Why I love Reykjavik and think it's so much more than a stop for tourists, it's an important city to visit on every trip to Iceland.

Not all great art is found inside. Check out these strange, a little quirky and definitely beautiful works of art I found in VERY unlikely locations while exploring Nevada! 
Stunning displays of Nevada art in some unlikely but beautiful locations.

The best luxury option in St Louis and maybe the entire state? Plus a fun stop along the famed Route 66 
The Ritz-Carlton, St. Louis is one of the city's best hotels thanks to its amazing service, location and more!

Story
Tagline
Experiencing the best the world has to offer, one adventure at a time and helping others do the same.
Introduction
I run the popular travel site LandLopers. I've always wanted to see the world, but only started blogging three years ago to help friends plan their trips. At the time I was working at a job I hated and one that was actually killing me both physically and mentally. I've always loved to travel, but as I traveled more often and shared my stories I realized that my true passion in life is doing what I do now - traveling and writing about it.

Today hundreds of thousands of people visit LandLopers for travel inspiration as well as practical tips on how to better see the world and have more fun along the way.

I cover all destinations, but especially love Europe, Africa and Australasia. My travel photos are also a big part of the experience for me and I share a new one every day.

So far I have visited more than 60 countries and all 7 continents and I'm no where close to slowing down.

I own the cutest Siberian Huskies in the world.
