Much of what we read about travel is packaged into a descriptive personal essay that seeks to sweep the reader to a magical land where cotton candy falls from the sky and unicorns roam undulating; verdant hills leading to an ethereal Eden. And let’s face it, most of us enjoy reading a romantic story about […]

Monday, January 17, 2011

Trek along for a hike up the biblical Mount Sinai for a once-in-a-lifetime chance to watch the sun rise from the second most famous mountain in the world.

Transition Gracefully: Tips On Putting Down The Backpack

Friday, December 10, 2010

Transition. It’s a loaded word. It’s full of uncomfortable situations, decisions, even stress. For some of us, transitioning may come in the form of giving up the globetrotting lifestyle. This certainly isn’t the case with everyone who reads this, but for a significant number of travelers, this is approaching, undergoing, or has already been. The […]

Why You Should Visit Colombia

Friday, December 10, 2010

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.
