Anthony Prepares to go Around the World

Grand Cayman Highlights

Here’s another visit of the highlight video from Grand Cayman. You’ll recognize Bourdain drinking vodka in the beginning! πŸ™‚

Daily Photo – Anthony Prepares to go Around the World

Here's a favorite candid of Bourdain I got during the big “Tasting Around the World” event during the Cayman Cookout. This is right before it began. See all those umbrellas around the outside? Each “booth” was from a different country and there were about 10 represented here… Anthony would go around and have food or drinks at each one… It was a really fun event!

The Black Pearl Pirate Party Ship!

Tips for Street Fashion Photography from Milan

Milan was stop 3 on our tour of Europe and we had a cool crowd out for the photo walk where we discussed tips on photographing street fashion. What better venue for that than Milan? Maybe Paris? And that is up next!

Daily Photo – The Black Pearl Pirate Party Ship!

I could see this party boat go out every day from my room in Aruba. I never got on the boat, but I thought about it. One evening I decided to ALMOST get on the boat by flying the quadcopter out there. It was muuuuch further than it looked, and I was a little worried about the quad! But, if I'm going to fly so far away, I prefer to do it over the open water like this… it's really hard to get lost and not find it… that is one of my biggest worries!

Fun in the Sun in Fort Lauderdale

More Florida Fun

I think next January we’re going to take the family back on another grand vacation to Florida and the Caribbean! We’re already talking about it quite a bit… this time we’ll hit different places, but I know a few on the list: Miami, Grand Cayman Island, and Cancun!

Daily Photo – Fun in the Sun in Fort Lauderdale

Here is my friend Kerry Ann who came down to spend the afternoon with me on a fun photo shoot. She came down with her boyfriend Pascha who was running our big charity event for us. Thanks again for everyone that took part in that. I think we had the fifth-highest charity event on the platform, so that is great. Also glad to report that 100% of the money with to the HEALING.NET Foundation! Thanks again everyone.

A Lonely Walk in Dubai

Where are we in Europe right now?

Come out for our photo walks! See more on the European Tour Website! Hope to see you in person soon! πŸ™‚

Daily Photo – A Lonely Walk in Dubai

I was staying at the Four Seasons here along the beach in Dubai and went out for a late night walk. There is ALWAYS construction going on, so I decided not to avoid it and try to make an interesting photo with all the lights. Most of the time, I want a clean beach shot without any of this unsightly construction going on, but I decided to give myself a challenge and see if I could make it more interesting!

The Long Boat Ride Home

Barcelona Photo Walk Highlights – Taking Unique Photos

Barcelona was stop 2 on our tour of Europe and we had a great crowd out for the photo walk. It was a completely different but equally awesome atmosphere to Lisbon and our after party was filled with some great people with excellent questions.

Daily Photo – The Long Boat Ride Home

When we took the boat back from Burano to Venice, the water could not have been more smooth. Most of the time, the water between all these islands off the coast of Italy are a little choppy. It's mostly wind that causes it, but there's also quite a bit of boat traffic. This evening, there was neither… It was so magical floating across this glassy mirror and seeing the sunset above and below.

Having a Night Ski at Coronet Peak

Following along in Europe

Try out the #80stays hashtag on Instagram to follow along and see some of the photos people are taking while joining me on the European Photo Walk Tour!

Daily Photo – Having a Night Ski at Coronet Peak

This is kind of a crazy photo, eh? In a lot of ways, I think it is kind of a crappy photo, but in another way, it's sort of an abstract. I was going back and forth between how to process this photo, and I finally decided on this other-worldly look. The whole thing reminds me of something sci-fi in a way… the idea of skiing at night is pretty awesome. I can see this lit-up ski field atop Coronet peak from my home down at the bottom of the mountain.

An old public bathroom to buy burgers

Late May in Berlin for Photo Walk

Make sure to check out our our 80 Stays Tour Website for all the info on our FREE Photo Walk in Berlin on the 20th May!

Daily Photo – An old public bathroom to buy burgers.

Welcome to one of the most famous burger places in Berlin! We asked our concierge at the Ritz-Carlton where to go get a cool meal. He said, well, there is a place under the railroad tracks that used to be a public restroom and has been converted to a place to get great burgers. Say no more! Curtis and I went straight there! πŸ™‚

Inside the Hagia Sofia

Broadcast from the Hagia Sofia

When I was in Istanbul, I published this live Facebook video while I was there in the Hagia Sofia… Enjoy! πŸ™‚

Daily Photo – Inside the Hagia Sofia

Look, a wonder of the world! At least, it's a wonder in Civilization. There are many different lists for Wonders of the World, and I never know which one to believe. Oh well, no matter, because this is on MY list. At first, when I went in here, I was a bit bummed out about the scaffolding. But then I decided to embrace it as a moment in time… and I think in embracing it and in the post processing, it came out quite interesting. I think it actually looks kind of cool, and it reminds me of a space station building a starship or something like this…

A Magical Sunset in Naples

#80Stays!

Be sure to check out the latest on our European Tour! We’re right in the middle of it now and having a blast! I hope you can join us! πŸ™‚

Daily Photo – A Magical Sunset in Naples

Every night I went out on the beach here in front of the Ritz-Carlton to get a good sunset. I was rewarded 40% of the time over my 5 nights… Usually, I get better stats than 2/5 on Florida sunsets… but there were some strange storms, which make the sunsets both unpredictable but also quite amazing when they actually do happen. It reminds me once again that it's most important just to show up with your camera and hope it all works out!

Family Chaos

Chaos and Order

I noticed that most kids seem to have no preference of chaos over order, whereas parents almost universally prefer order. Well, at least my kids seem to thrive in chaos, as you can see in today’s photo!

Daily Photo – Family Chaos

Here's a crazy shot from Aruba. We thought it'd be a “great idea” to get the kids out for a little bit of family paddleboard action. Well it was pretty great for about 10 minutes until Ethan started using “ramming speed” and trying to capsize his sisters. They started fighting back (good for them), and then it turned into WWF on paddleboards!
