The World’s Most Excruciating Race, And You’re Invited!

When Pheidippides dropped dead after his history-making jaunt from Marathon to Athens, we thought those 26.2 miles were the extent of human endurance. But then came the ultra-marathons. Fifty and one hundred-mile races were added to the mix. Well “thons,” meet Death Race: part of the circuit-series of Spartan Race […]

Mexican Road Trip: Should You Do it?

Braving an awesome experience comes with the weight of cost and benefit. To experience a culture — the people, the language, the street food — as authentically as possible is always the goal. Some no longer wish for simply Tex-Mex. Some want the real thing. At the end of the […]

How To Find The Real Bali By Bike

There is a saying: “To really see a country, leave the city.” Just as Paris may not be the best representation of France, and New York City isn’t a complete portrayal of the United States (sorry Matt), the same can be said about other parts of the world, Bali for example. There […]

What To Expect In The Galapagos

Let’s be honest, 90% of going to the Galapagos is to say, “Yes, that’s right, I’m traveling to the Galapagos.” It’s the travel equivalent of being a fan of Mad Men: It’s basically code telling the world that you’re “in the know,” that you have discernible tastes, and that you […]

My Encounter With Hákarl, The Worst Tasting Food On Earth

Dressed in his full-length overalls, Icelandic fisherman Asgeir leads my guide and me to the edge of the harbor where several shipping containers rest ominously far from the rusted whaling boats tied to the wharf. Asgeir peers back at us with a delighted grin and utters something jokingly in Icelandic. […]

Tour Divide: The Most Difficult Bike Race On Earth You’ve Never Heard Of

A record-setting field of racers is nearing completion. Some race for the experience and some for the physical test. Some race to see if they can truly achieve their dream, some out of curiosity, and some for the idea. Some race to win. On June 9, 77 people will converge […]

Searching For Jaguars In Paraguay

“Be Careful,” he shouted at me in clearly articulated Spanish as I began to walk towards the glowing green foliage of Cerro Cora National Park. “We’ve seen the jaguar out there three or four times already this month. It rained last night, so any prints you see will have been […]

That Time I Caught Malaria In Africa

The following is an excerpt from the new travel compilation released by TheExpeditioner.com, The Expeditioner’s Guide to the World: Intrepid Tales of Awesomeness from the Open Road, available for sale now at Amazon.com. I awoke the next morning to find a foot dangling from the bunk above mine. Apparently someone […]

Madre De Dios

Madre De Dios

The rain sounded different to Cusco rain. Fatter, wetter somehow, the decadent splatter of water on leaf. The drugs had me pinned between an exhausted indifference to whatever may have been crawling through the holes in walls and window screens, and a lurid imagining of too-many-legged tarantulas seeking escape from […]

The Fun Of Photography Is Getting There, And Peter Lik Is Going There

When you haven’t got any trips on the horizon and you’re reading posts about recent trips to, say, Barcelona, you’ll seek out any means of escapism. Recently, I learned of a new show on The Weather Channel called From the Edge With Peter Lik about the acclaimed Australian photographer who […]
