“Hunting” For Lions In The Botswana Bush

Sunday, March 8, 2009

On safari in the Botswana bush in search of the elusive lion. By Danielle Max Modern hunters may shoot with cameras and not guns, but the adrenalin rush when the “prey” comes into view remains, as I discovered when I went in search of the elusive lion in Botswana. While elephants thrive in great numbers, […]

Machu Picchu: One Of The World’s Greatest Wonders That May Be Gone By 2011

Thursday, February 26, 2009

One of the world’s most spectacular sights, Machu Picchu may be a victim of its own success, so says David Rich in this article over at GoNomad. Now, roughly 100 years from the day it was discovered, over 400,00 visitors a year make the 28-mile trek along the Inca Trail to set eyes upon this […]

Go Ahead And Splurge A Bit, You’re In Ha Long Bay

Monday, January 12, 2009

By Kyle Long Within the first five minutes of exiting the airport I got a pretty good sense of what I was going to find in Vietman. Arriving here can be a bit of a shock at first, especially if you’ve just spent the last week relaxing in some of the country’s more laid-back neighbors, […]

Cook Islands: Easier Than You Think (And More Beautiful)

Thursday, December 4, 2008

The Cook Islands may only be 15 small islands, but they stretch across an area of the South Pacific the size of India, and with about 100,000 visitors a year, you’d think they’d be a little more, well, touristy. But think again. Though historically friendly to outsiders (maybe a little too much) these islanders cling […]

Saturday, November 29, 2008

It’s not really hyperbole to say that Cartagena is one of the world’s most beautiful cities. What a great place to end the trip. I’ve gone from the breezy, mountainous climate of Bogatá, through the valleys of Medellin, and finally to the balmy Caribbean coast. It’s hard to believe it’s possible to experience so much […]

Colombia Trip: Day Nine (Taganga & Snorkeling)

Thursday, November 27, 2008

Up at six again this morning, for some reason I’m getting up way earlier than I do when I’m not traveling. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that there’s nothing to do in Santa Marta once the sun goes down, and almost way too much to do when it comes up. After […]

Colombia Trip: Day Eight (Beach of the Dead)

Wednesday, November 26, 2008

Well the weather didn´t turn out to be nice until almost exactly when I arrived at the beach, so what else can you ask for? I can´t do too much typing given the sad state of the keyboard that I´m using right now (I don´t even want to know why some buttons are barely working) […]
