In this travel video guide to Guatemala, I head down to Guatemala and explore scenic Antigua, hike Volcano Pacaya, take a road trip to Lake Atitlan (and ride a horse along its banks), then head north to Tikal, home to the capital of the once mighty Mayan Empire, where I climb the many temples that […]

Koh Rong: Get There Quick Before . . .

Friday, May 11, 2012

Unspoiled, turquoise-green, powder-white beaches, inexpensive . . . You’ve heard these adjectives before when describing beaches in Southeast Asia, right? However, they’re usually followed up with such words as: full-moon party, MDMA, overcrowded, touristy. Thus is the result of decades-worth of word-of-mouth recommendations for islands such as Koh Phangan, Koh Phi Phi, Koh Samui, and […]

14 Unforgettable Images From Guatemala

Monday, April 9, 2012

At 12,336 feet, Volcán de Agua towers over Antigua, which was once the capital of the country until 1773 when a massive earthquake struck destroying much of the country. Antigua’s population is only about 30,000 people, but during the height of the tourist season that number swells to over 60,000, many of whom are there attending one […]

During my trip to Guatemala, a group of us started swapping life stories while at dinner in the small lake island of Flores, and when we came to the Australian guy in his late 20’s who looked like he could probably both crush me and steal my girlfriend — all in the same moment — […]

Diving With Dinosaurs In South Africa

Monday, March 12, 2012

Just off the Cape Peninsula and south of Cape Town in South Africa, lies an innocuous short stretch of ocean. Like much of the seascape here, kelp sprouts from the kryptonite green water, which laps at boulders straight out of The Flintstones. It looks a lot like the rest of this spectacular coastline. Yet this […]

In Search Of The Real Lost World: Scaling Mount Roraima

Monday, January 30, 2012

My trek the top of Mount Roraima was an accidental adventure. Serendipitous? Yes. Rewarding? No doubt about it. However, there were times when I would have given anything to be anywhere other than on that mongrel of a mountain in Venezuela. A table-top mountain or mesa — synonymous with this part of South America — […]

Where To Ski This Winter (Now That It Has Arrived)

Tuesday, January 24, 2012

Now that La Nina has finally reared her head onto America’s northern Rocky Mountains, I’ve been rejuvenated to wax my skis in anticipation of escaping all those mind-numbing groomer runs and finding some powder. Really, La Nina? WTF? With a recent system blanketing western Montana — we’re talking like one of those uber-beefy, 14-inch thick, […]

Thursday, January 19, 2012

So you’re one of those adventure, off-the-beaten-path travelers that revels in the fact that you don’t bother with those touristy destinations around the world; that you knew about Laos, Colombia and Jordan long before everyone else did; and that there’s no place in the world you wouldn’t at least consider visiting.
