Welcome to the Travel Tuesday Email, which goes out every other Tuesday and always offers interesting travel-related stories, a suggestion of social media personalities to follow and a quote to ponder.
OVERCOMING OBSTACLES IN TRAVEL I came across Zach Anner's videos years ago and they still inspire me today. Zach is a comedian, actor and writer with cerebral palsy who wanted to start a travel show for reasons you'll see in this video. It's adventure, it's friendship at its best, and it's a guy who's spirit is so infectious he now has a show on Oprah Winfrey's Own Network.

A LESSON FROM THE WORST DRUMMER IN BELIZE If you have the opportunity to listen to a Garifuna band from Belize, or see one live like I did while working aboard a small cruise ship, you'll be carried away by their infectious drum beats and African-inspired melodies. This is not about them though. This is the story of a cruise passenger, curiosity, and embracing life, no matter what people might say about you.

WHO I'M FOLLOWING:
Besides having one of my favorite first names, Macduff Everton is also one of my favorite photographers. I had the privilege of traveling with him in British Columbia and was able to see why his Insta profile "visual anthropologist" is such an apt title. He picked quiet moments to engage people, asked questions and listened intently before evening thinking about raising his camera. When he did, brilliant. He can capture more than most people see.
