Here’s How You Can Win $100,000 To Live On A Caribbean Island

Tuesday, August 27, 2013

I can think of worse things to happen to me than being stranded on a desert island in the Caribbean for a couple weeks, especially if during those two weeks I was marooned with someone who knows a thing or two about how not to die while there, like Survivorman’s Les Stroud. I know, I […]

You Haven’t Experienced A Sunrise Until You’ve Done So In Tikal, Guatemala

Monday, July 22, 2013

The only thing more magical than hiking through a jungle in the dark, following a path that must be made of white gravel because it glows faintly in the full moon, is hiking through a jungle in the dark past big black hills — blacker than the sky behind them, blacker than the trees that […]

I Can’t Stop Looking At These Amazing Travel Photos From India

Friday, June 7, 2013

I’m loving the photo collection I recently discovered by noted travel photographer Steve McCurry (a 30-year veteran in the industry) entitled “Trains,” his ode to India’s beloved and ubiquitous mode of transportation. From the sweeping long shots (like the one from Agra above), to the intimate close-ups, McCurry’s overarching theme is his amazing ability to […]

In Search Of The Northern Lights

Thursday, May 30, 2013

We huddled in the dark in front of the laptop. Webcams pointed out across the vast frozen lake would pick up any sign of the aurora borealis before the human eye. Outside the temperature was several degrees below freezing and the snow was knee-deep. It was our sixth attempt at seeing the northern lights, and […]
