Why You Should Visit Colombia

Friday, December 10, 2010

When I was reading the recent news reports about Colombia’s terrible rains and floods that have been ravaging the South American country for the last few weeks, it made me think back to my own trip there almost two years ago to the date. I was there in late November, and then too a weird […]

Low-Cost Carriers To Greatly Expand Service In SE Asia

Friday, December 3, 2010

Nothing beats long-haul bus trip in Southeast Asia, with its blaring TVs, the hair-raising passings, and the curious roadside food offerings. But if you’re strapped for time and have a little bit of extra cash on you, plane travel is the way to go, especially now with the announcement of two huge players in the […]

Around The World, One Day At A Time . . .

Tuesday, November 23, 2010

What if you decided to start a travel blog about that epic trip you’re taking around the world, documenting the people you meet, the crazy border crossings you do, and the wild food you eat. But what happens if you keep putting it off, intending to get going with it, but just getting a little […]

Wednesday, November 10, 2010

For some incredible shots of India, as well as the best scitar this side of the Brahmaputra River, check out O.G.’s video from India, featuring one of the coolest open-air night parties I’ve ever seen at 7:15. I think I even spotted India’s version of Kanye West there? [Video by O.G./Vimeo]

SE Asia Trip Dispatch: Part Five (Phnom Penh)

Tuesday, October 19, 2010

After leaving Siem Reap I decided to break up the impending grueling 12-hour bus ride and head to Phnom Penh, the capital of Cambodia, about 6 hours to the southeast. It’s probably safe to say most people don’t know much if anything about the city, and the first thing they wonder is how to pronounce […]

SE Asia Trip Dispatch: Part Four (Angkor Wat)

Wednesday, October 13, 2010

To say that the temples at Angkor are spectacular is like saying that France has good food: no need to state the obvious. After a 12-hour bus ride through the paddy fields and flood plains along the Tonle Sap lake in central Cambodia, I arrived late in Siem Reap. Expecting nothing more than a sleepy […]

SE Asia Trip Dispatch: Part Three (Saigon Part Duex)

Sunday, October 10, 2010

On June 11, 1963, Buddhist monk Thich Quang Duc set himself on fire to protest the treatment of monks by American-backed President Ngo Dinh Diem. This act led to the steep decline of the support of the President, and is widely believed to be the end of his reign, culminating in his assassination in November […]

SE Asia Trip Dispatch: Part Two (Saigon: First Impressions)

Thursday, October 7, 2010

Jet lag does some strange things to the mind on the road. Waking up, sweating in the middle of the night, with no chance of falling back asleep, it sends your mind into some dark corners of the world, switching off all pleasure receptors and robbing you of all that you hold dear. But, alas, […]

We’ve Got Your Back: Ways To Avoid Being A Cafe Douchebag

Wednesday, October 6, 2010

Cafes serve as our internet oasis while on the road. I’ve often found myself infused with copious amounts of coffee in order to let my Facebook crew know I survived my last ramblings. Even more so, hours pass updating the ol’ travel blog on the latest Asian weirdness I happened to ingest while on said […]
