Where To Avoid The Tourists In Vietnam

This week the NYT headed off-the-beaten-path in Vietnam in search of a little respite from the hustle and bustle that is the rest of the country, and where they found it may be a little surprising: Con Dao — the infamous island chain known more for their prisons than for […]

Video: Why Would Anyone Want To Leave Bali?

The girls over at Something Creative decided to trek off of their home island of Bali, and head one island over to Gili Trawangan, off the coast of Lombok, Indonesia, where where the roads are carless, the shallow waters are ripe for diving, and the mood is laid back. Okay, […]

Taming The Brutal Kimodo Dragon . . . Sort Of

Real adventures, I mean the utterly real, still exist. You may have to look quite hard for them, but they’re still out there. The Telegraph recently recounted a trip into the lair of the fire-breathing, man-eating lizard, the Kimodo Dragon. At first glance, I thought this was one of those real kind of adventures. […]

Rwanda: Remembering Why We Travel

Everyone travels differently and travels for different reasons. Some people need time to relax when others need to feel their hearts racing and beating in their throats. Yet, no matter the traveler, you know that a place had an impression on someone when he or she comes back and can’t […]

Alive And Well In Prague: A Case Study Of Ex-Patriotism

When asked why they choose to leave their native soil, I’ve heard plenty of ex-patriots answer with tales of youthful days spent eagerly turning the pages of a National Geographic and dreaming. My own youthfully intrepid mind used to consistently conjure up vivid images standing on a boat’s bow peering […]

Video: India In 3 Minutes

This video’s got a great intro that reads: In January 2010 I traveled with a friend to Nepal and attempted to drive an auto rickshaw 2,000 miles to the bottom of India. The rickshaw broke down every day and eventually completely stopped working. We took the train the rest of […]

Borneo: See Unforgettable Wildlife, Almost Get Bitten By A Deadly Snake, All In One Day

It’s probably fair to say that Bako National Park, in Borneo, is the only national park in the world where you are likely to run into hairy-nosed otters, flying lemurs, silver-leaf monkeys, honey bears, and green pit vipers (whose poisonous bite will kill you within a matter of hours), all […]

Bangkok Tips For The First-Timer

Oh, Bangkok. What will we ever do with you? Some love it, some hate it, some have both feelings towards it — often at the same time. It grabs travelers for indefinite amounts of time when they were simply passing through. It’s conflicted, it’s beautiful, it’s Bangkok, and we wouldn’t have it any […]

Looking For Roasted Pig And Bras? You’ve Come To The Right Place

Known for its many food stalls serving perhaps Bali’s most famous dish, Babi guling — a spiced roasted pig traditionally made with a whole suckling pig that’s been stuffed with a fragrant spice paste and spit-roasted over a barbecue — Gianyar’s night markets come alive after 6 p.m. Head there […]

Luke´s Europe Trip: Dispatch 4 (Holy Andalusian Tapas! By Decree Of The King!)

I tend to consider myself a wholesome, PG-rated person. But in looking back at my first three Expeditioner dispatches from my Europe trip, the themes were not exactly the stuff of church homilies. They included: Selling cigarettes in London, The Devil, and illegally visiting Paris’s catacombs. To redeem myself, I […]
