Sunset Series

Took the photos from the top deck of the Disney Fantasy out in the Caribbean Sea, after sailing away from the Cayman Islands. We were just behind the hurricane Nicole, that was just hitting the southern tip of Florida. So, the sky was beautiful and it was full of big puffy clouds. I was struck by how beautiful the sunset was - so I grabbed my camera and took a series of photo for my travel blog TRAVELS WITH MICHAEL https://twitter.com/TravelsWithMic2/status/1593646627641708544?s=20 https://www.tiktok.com/@travelswithmichaelc/video/7167462948481502510?is_from_webapp=1&sender_device=pc&web_id=7167463217623926318

Apple Wallet Review

I have had many people ask me how I am able to travel as much as I do...like, where do I find my deals or what apps do I use....so I decided to try and do more with my travel YouTube channel. Here, I would like to do product/tech reviews, travel tips, and unboxing videos! So, for one of my first videos, I decided to review the Apple MagSafe Wallet and why I think it is a great tool for those who have an iPhone and love to travel. I love this wallet! Check out my video and find out why! https://youtu.be/dPV1Usop4AE
Las Vegas – January 2022

Las Vegas – January 2022

Day 1 - Thursday So I decided to take a quick weekend excursion to Las Vegas to see some friends. My roommate drove out with me so I did not have to drive alone - thank you Todd! Since I am getting ready for my birthday trip to Ireland this year - I got myself a GoPro before heading out of town! So we drove out Thursday afternoon - it was a lovely drive. I do not often drive up through the desert to join the 15, but we did that and frankly, I think it is a smoother and easier trip...it is more of a two-lane highway, so it sucks to get stuck behind a truck BUT it beats having to be stuck in traffic going through the city! So my first stop was Henderson, Nevada and Boulder City, staying with my roommate's family. Friday - Day 2 Boulder City was such a charming cit...

Central America

My good friend Jason and I are in the middle of writing a treatment to a script. We meet weekly at our favorite bar The Federal, during happy hour; we sit out on the back patio and we hash out ideas for our script! So we are both vaccinated! And I had not been on an airplane in over a year, because I did not want to fly until I was fully vaccinated. But as we both sat there, discussing our script, we realized how bored and antsy we were becoming, tired from quarantine fatigue. So....we decided then and there that we should book a trip somewhere and continue writing on some beach in Mexico. But after much research, we finally decided on Costa Rica! We found an amazingly inexpensive flight on Copa Airlines, that had a 17 hour layover in Panama! I had been to Costa Rica before, sinc...
Canceled trip to Europe

Canceled trip to Europe

Today, April 29, 2020, my father and I would be flying back from our 15 day trip to Europe. We were going to celebrate his birthday [which is on April 20] but the trip was cancelled due to the travel restrictions because of Covid-19. We booked our tickets through Delta back in August of 2019. This was my father's first time traveling abroad and  I was excited about to share this opportunity with him. Plus I was excited about seeing more of Europe - as I had only been to London, England and Gotland, Sweden. We were going to do a nice tour through about five countries, traveling via train and staying in Air BNB's. It was going to be a exciting trip. And imagine the amazing pictures I would have been able to take! But thankfully Delta allowed us to push our flights and we have ...
Mazatlan, Mexico

Mazatlan, Mexico

So on my actual birthday I took a road trip to Solvang, California but the big birthday trip I took was with my roommate Todd - whose birthday is also in February - to Mazatlan, Mexico. So we traveled at the end of February as most of the area was booked for Carnival. The good thing was that it was fairly quiet and low key while we were there, so definitely a great time for a quiet birthday week. We stayed at the El Cid Moro resort, right on the Pacific Ocean. An all-inclusive resort. Talk about an amazing view! And watching the sunset our first night there was so unbelievable! Beginning our first night there, my friend Todd and I caught the dinner show they have and then made our way up to the bar for some karaoke.  By the way, this became our nightly routine, and...
Solvang, California

Solvang, California

So the first trip I took in 2020, was a road trip I took with my friend Jacob Michael for my birthday. [My birthday is February 18th] And we drove up ON the day of my actual birthday. I love celebrating my birthday in a new place every year. So if I am not on set on the day of my birthday - I like to travel! The city of Solvang, CA is about an hour and a half north of Los Angeles. Solvang is a little dutch city inland from Santa Barbara. There is also a nice mission there - Mission San Inez. The day we went the weather was BEAUTIFUL. Not too hot, not too cold. [Sometimes it rains on my birthday.]  I was also not aware of how much wine tasting you can do in Solvang.  So to know me, is to know that I LOVE wine tasting - and when I got there and realized there ...

As a filmmaker and photographer, I am fortunate enough to be able to travel for work. I do also travel a lot for personal reasons as well. I am obsessed with traveling and try to take as many as trips as possible. Not only do I love to travel abroad, but I do enjoy traveling throughout the United States as possible. This includes road trips as well. There is nothing quite like getting in your car and exploring new areas! Especially when I can bring my camera along! So, here is my travel blog TRAVELS WITH MICHAEL. Please comment and tell me your thoughts. And if you have ever visited the countries or areas I have been to, please share your stories and/or pictures as well. I also post on TripAdvisor. Social Media

Since I travel so much for pleasure and for work, I decided that for 2020 I wanted to invest in a camera. I am not looking to become a professional photographer - it is definitely just a hobby. My goal is just to take better pictures when I travel. To help gather feedback I created both an Instagram and Pinterest page. Please follow and help me become a better photographer!
