Tuesday, April 13, 2010

Being a guy I was completely oblivious to the odd little corner of the internet devoted to girls showing off what they carry in their handbags (a cousin to this is the showing-off-what-I-bought videos on YouTube). On Flickr you can find groups such as Whatsinmybag and Whatsinyourbag, collections consisting of thousands of such pictures. Not […]

Seeing Real Phuket (Without The Tourists) By Any Means Possible

Wednesday, March 31, 2010

You find yourself paddling a lagoon in the Dr. Seussian islands, about 20 kilometers northwest of Phuket, Thailand.

Traveling Alone Without Loneliness

Wednesday, March 17, 2010

It is all too familiar of a feeling when traveling solo, or even with someone: loneliness. You miss your friends, your family, the luxuries back home, your bicycle, your crappy job. It can be overwhelming, especially if you are traveling for an indefinite time period, and at times you want to throw in your undersized-hosteling […]

Taveling Patagonia Around Ruta 40

Thursday, February 25, 2010

I’m sitting on the bottom bunk of my hostel in El Calafate, home of the famous Perito Moreno Glacier, and exhausted from a days journey by bus from El Bolson, a tiny hippie-town nestled in the Andes. What was exhausting was not the 26 hours spent in a barely reclinable seat, but that there were […]

Wednesday, February 24, 2010

Something you hear alot of this time of year (especially in New York) is: “I’m heading down to Boca for the weekend.” Chances are they’re probably not referring to Bocas del Toro, the Panamanian archipelago located in the Caribbean near the Costa Rica border.
