Lone Pilgrim On The Kumano Kodo

Wednesday, January 17, 2018

On my second day in Kumano Kodo, I came across an unsettling sight nestled into the mountain ridge: a moss-choked shrine to Jizo, the guardian of travelers. This spot in Kumano Kodo marked the place where, in 1854, locals had come across the corpse of a lone pilgrim. The mossy Jizo reminded me just how […]

Oranges, Chickens And The Reason I Signed Up For Spanish Classes

Saturday, January 6, 2018

On our last day in Pedasi, a Pananamian fishing town 200 miles from Panama City, 4 people from the multi-generational family who lived next door stood in my kitchen. There was the lady of the house, her 11-year-old daughter, a man I had never seen before and a visiting, out-of-town aunt. I showed them the […]

Borders, Bandits, And Baby Wipes: A Big Adventure In A Tiny Car

Sunday, December 17, 2017

Inspired and challenged by his quests of “getting there,” Bassam Tarazi and two friends signed on for the infamous Mongol Rally, a nearly 10,000-mile road trip from London to Mongolia, through terrain that would make a mountain goat’s knees buckle, in a vehicle that was little more than a go-kart. Borders, Bandits, and Baby Wipes […]

Siem Reap, home to the majestic temples of Angkor, has long been on the map as a must-visit destination for any traveler to Southeast Asia.

My Pick For The Perfect Travel Holiday Present

Thursday, November 23, 2017

It’s that time of year where we all struggle with the challenge of buying holiday gifts for those who love to travel. What to buy? Airplane tickets (yes, please)? Memorable experiences (easier said than done)? Travel-size toiletries (practical, but not really what we’re going for here)? That’s why I decided to highlight one of my […]

Into The Great, Wide Open: The Ultimate Alaskan Fishing Trip

Tuesday, November 14, 2017

Through the windshield, I watched the de Havilland’s front propellor spin furiously as our small 8-person prop plane hurtled forward through the Alaskan sky. It was a bright, clear morning, and below us I could make out the outlines of a few of the small islands that make up the Alexander Archipelago. Looming in front […]

What’s So Bad About Falling In Love On The Road?

Monday, October 2, 2017

“Whatever you do, don’t fall in love.” This is the advice my resident advisor gave me when he found out I was heading to England to study abroad for a semester during my senior year. It has stuck with me ever since, not because I thought it was a good bit of wisdom, but because […]

Barefoot Hiking Through Peru

Monday, September 11, 2017

“Come to Peru with us!” I laughed at the three drunken Danes facing me. We’d just spent a month bonding in Costa Rica and tomorrow they were leaving for South America. I was sad to see them go, but I couldn’t just up and follow them to Peru. I told them as much. “Why not?” […]
