"Live" from the road Michelle's and Rolf's
Travel Location Blog (for our fans).

The world we live in is full of everything we could possibly need or want, from awe inspiring scenery to challenging rock faces to conquer, from an Alaska cruise to wonderful culinary delights to sipping wine at boutique vineyards somewhere in Italy. This world offers so many natural and man made pleasures, and the choice is ours to get out there to experience it!

As a travel photographer, a large part of the job involves adventure traveling to remote and unique regions of the world. The Travel Channel provides the vessel in which to share with you our own experiences through extensive travel, travel adventure and repeat visits to so many of these exquisite locations. picture of the la alhambra in Granada, spain

In the Travel Channel, you will find information in the form of travel stories, features, and articles or in some cases photo tours. From British Columbia in Canada to overseas locations like New Zealand, Europe and the Galapagos Islands.

We want to welcome you to our world! From National Parks of Western USA to the santorini photoremote wildernesses of Canada, and Alaska. From cultural and historic sights in Europe to a romantic cruise with a Criuse ship to the Greek Islands.

Each article or feature is beautifully illustrated with Rolf Hicker's fine photography to showcase each location and give perspective to the writing. We hope that the travel information you find here conveys to you the enthusiasm we share for each destinaton, and provides you with inspiration for organizing your next vacation, holidays or overseas adventure travel.
