Sunday, March 16, 2014

If you’re in the process of planning a luxury safari, there are several questions you should be thinking about before you book. Contrary to what you may think, it is often cheaper to book directly through a tour operator. You will also benefit from the service they provide, the unique knowledge they have of your […]

Exploring The Caucasus Mountains On The Chechen Border: It’s Not What You’d Think

Monday, February 17, 2014

Small black figures walk up and down the jagged ridge. A patch of blue sky peers down onto the blue-green slopes of the bare mountainside before it disappears behind the grey, cotton clouds. A cool wind brushes against my skin and carries the smell of burnt wood and charcoal from my denim jacket I had […]

Turning Points: A Dispatch From The End Of The Country

Sunday, January 5, 2014

In the days preceding winter solstice, the sky enshrouding Barrow, Alaska, is a hue somewhere between mineral pitch and squid ink. And the skyline stays that way for all of a handful of minutes when it winnows a degree or two lighter, the barest luminescence along the horizon, like the last gasps of cathode ray […]

Cape Town Is Beautiful, And This Video Makes It Look Even Better

Friday, December 27, 2013

I know that it’s not exactly difficult to make South Africa’s Cape Town look beautiful, given the perpetually sunny weather and the grand landscape of the city as it sits below nearby Table Mountain. But this video from Jesse Olson perfectly captures a certain energy and look of the city that visitors sometimes have a […]

Scaling Italy’s Iron Roads

Tuesday, December 17, 2013

Every so often, in the hills of northern Italy, travelers still stumble onto caches of rusting grenades beneath the snow and ice that lingers from World War I. Italian and Austrian soldiers once crept over these heights under the shade of night, their ears red as raw meat from the snow. They clambered up sheer […]

Burning Calories And Rubber In The Heat Of Oaxaca

Sunday, December 8, 2013

Bicycle touring is an amazing way to travel but it can be slow-going. Our Journey started in Mexico with the plan to pedal south through Central and South America. I imagined cycling would be a romantic way to travel; avoiding the bus schedule we could be free as birds, not to mention feeling fit and […]

A Voyage To Costa Rica’s Underwater Serengeti

Friday, December 6, 2013

330 miles west, or a day and half in boat time, is Cocos Island, an uninhabited island officially part of Costa Rica that is considered to be one of the world’s best locations for scuba diving due to the massive amount of sealife that call the island’s nearby water home (hence the nickname “underwater Serengeti”). […]

In part five of my travel video series from Maui, Hawaii, I travel to the Surfing Goat Dairy Farm, Maui’s premiere (and only) goat farm, where I am put to work feeding and milking the goats, and rewarded with an artisanal goat cheese tasting.

Travel Guide to Maui, Hawaii (Part 4)

Thursday, November 28, 2013

In part four of my travel video series from Maui, Hawaii, I decide to get a little high culture in and head to Ulupalakua Winery and Ranch, where I sample some pineapple wine (what else?), then head across the street to the Western-themed country store for elk burgers for lunch. Then I pick up my […]

Travel Guide to Maui, Hawaii (Part 3)

Wednesday, November 27, 2013

In part three of my travel video series from Maui, Hawaii, I start off the day by heading back up the side of Haleakala Volcano, then lunging my body of the side of the hillside (okay, I was paragliding). As I floated thousands of feet above ground, I was given a unique viewpoint of the […]
