Jim Hartwell's Timeline
August 2017 my cousin Jo Borton asked to go on a photo trip with me. She wanted to see mountains. Two years later her dream became a reality with this tour. It was her first time out of the country. This tour was incredible and my cousin had a smile on her face the entire time. The group was one of the best ever and having Tanya with us was the icing on the cake. And Luka, Andrej, and Miro are the best. Of course my very good friend Dan – you are special.
This was my first time visiting the Asian side of the world. It was a very diverse trip with Temples, Komodo Dragons and Orangutans. From very luxury resorts to wave rocking boats this trip had it all. All the people we met from resort staff to village residents were friendly. We got to spend a lot of time in the muslim culture and that is a very positive eye opening experience. For the first time ever, we were asked to be photographed many times. Talk about reversing roles! Another plus is the fantastic food plus the best chocolate desert ever (unanumously agreed to by all of us) on the boat part of the trip. And of course I will never ever forget my very first and second massage at the SPA at Plataran Borodour given by Tari – wow. Dan and Tanya created another masterpiece of a journey and I highly recommend it.
Winter in Yellowstone is my new favorite season. The park was so beautiful with flocked trees and pristine carpets of snow. Feeling lucky to have made it given the snowy conditions. Thanks to Janette for safely getting us there. Photographing animals in snow has its challenges but bountiful rewards. The happy bag came in handy during times our chariots got stuck in the snow. This trip was well worth it with new friends and the usual excellent service of Dan and Tanya.
