Getting close to wildlife is another reason I love to travel. We put together some of our favorite snapshots of animals we have encountered in our travels. There is a human quality to some of the animals in these pictures that makes me smile. Hope it puts a smile on your face too. Above: penguins, aka flightless birds, in Cape Town, South Africa.

No trip would be complete without the people we meet and the impact they make on us. Here are some snapshots we wanted to bring home with us.
