Sammy and Brie looking out from O'ahu, Hawai'i to a small island offshore.
Sammy getting ready for a snorkel at Hanauma Bay, O'ahu. There are so many beautiful tropical fish in that water!
All that snorkeling builds up quite the appetite. Peanut butter, jelly, and banana sandwich!

Prehistoric rain forest? Coral reef? Both together?! Yep! Sammy has made it to where the Daintree Rain Forest and the Great Barrier Reef meet.
Oh no, Sammy wiped out while surfing! Broken board and everything.
At least Sammy is leaving a valuable message.
Sammy found a place that is so shallow that from the shore you can't see any water at low tide.
Sammy appreciates man-made beauty too. Jackson Pollock's "Blue Poles" is beautiful.
It's so hot and humid. But there's no swimming at this waterfall in Kakadu National Park. There's crocodiles in there!
What are these boulders in the middle of the desert? They're the Devil's Marbles.
Sammy made it out to one of the most iconic sights in Australia - Uluru. Sammy was so busy looking at the rock, only a couple blurry snapshots got taken.
Sammy in profile with Uluru.
Sammy is taking a rest after a hot hike in the Valley of the Winds at Kata Tjuta. Though there is a steady breeze, the sun overhead is scorching.
Sammy reads up on the scientific explanation of a crater in the distance.
Sammy also reads up on the local people's explanation for the crater.
It's weird for Sammy to see. The ground in the distance is completely flat, except for that ring of mountains. When something fell and hit the earth, it must have been like when a water droplet hits a puddle and it forms a ripple, except with rock.
Sammy is well rested and ready for this drive across the Nullarbor Plain. No trees, completely straight road, and the danger of camels, kangaroos, and wombats! What a strange place Australia is.
Sammy found a beach where the rocks have veins of garnet. Gemstones on the beach!? Beautiful blue water washing up on clean sands? Time for an afternoon of relaxing and working on that tan.
The ocean is calling to Sammy. Come take a dip. The temperature is perfect.
