Saludos from the Arenal Volcano National Park in Northern Costa Rica. An active volcano, which last erupted in 2010, Arenal offers plenty of activities, including ziplining, bird watching and hiking. The park also features a 200-foot waterfall - La Fortuna - a hanging bridge and hot springs. Our bulldog only has one more stop tomorrow before arriving back in South Glens Falls on Feb. 1.
Saudações/Saludos from the Iguazu Falls on the border of Argentina and Brazil. This two-step waterfall system is the largest in the world. The surrounding lands are home to a wide variety of animals including tapirs, giant anteaters, howler monkeys, ocelots, jaguars and caymans. Flowing from the Iguazu River, this incredible system is a popular tourist destination, and has been featured in many popular movies, including 2018's Black Panther. Our bulldog is amazed by the views here, but is very excited for the next location. #BulldogOutofOffice.
Groete from Deadvlei in Namibia. This surreal landscape is characterized by dark, dead camel thorn trees and a clay pan ground. According to the Sossusvlei tourism website, the pan was formed when the Tsauchab River flooded and the abundance of water allowed camel thorn trees to grow. However, the climate changed and the sand dunes encroached on the pan, blocking the river from reaching the area. The trees are estimated to be approximately 900 years old, however they have not decomposed due to the dry climate. Deadvlie is a part of the Sossusvlei Wildlife Conservation Park, which is rich with animal life. Most famously the oryx (a variety of antelope) and wild horses. Hyenas, jackals, porcupines, foxes and aardwolfs call the land home along with ostriches, scorpions and a variety of snake species. #BulldogOutofOffice
Habari from the Ngorongoro Conservation Area in Tanzania! Bulldog is in awe of this amazing landscape, centered by the largest intact caldera on earth. From December to January, a massive annual migration of millions of wildebeest, zebras, gazelles, and other animals occurs at the conservation area. Ngorongoro is also home to black rhinos, hippos and one of the densest populations of lions in the world. Our bulldog will be at the next location on Monday. See you then! #BulldogOutofOffice

G'day from Rottnest Island, Western Australia. Located just off the coast of Perth, this island is home to the world famous quokkas - small marsupials with a friendly disposition and an ever present "smile." Rottnest Island is a popular spot for whale watching, snorkeling and swimming. Bulldog is loving the waters and meeting the quokkas. Check in on Saturday for the next adventure! #BulldogOutofOffice

Kon'nichiwa from the Arashiyama Bamboo Grove in Kyoto, Japan. located about 30 minutes from the heart of Kyoto, this amazing grove features walkways surrounded by towering bamboo trees. These six miles of trails are a wonder to behold. But there is much more to explore in this area. The Iwatayama Monkey Park is a short distance away. Visitors in the spring can also cross the Moon Crossing Bridge that gives incredible views of the blooming cherry blossoms. Be sure to stop by on Wednesday for our next stop. #BulldogOutofOffice
Thạkthāy from Koh Kood, Thailand. Located in the Gulf of Thailand, this island is known as a beach paradise. With little infrastructure, it has become a destination for those looking to get away from it all. In fact, no ATM's exist on the island, which is home to around 2,000 permanent residents. After days of travel, our bulldog is in the need of some rest. Catch up on Monday, as the next destination is unveiled. #BulldogOutofOffice
