Camping In The Caribbean

Wednesday, December 9, 2009

Though not as cheap as you’d expect ($80), there are opportunities for setting up tent in the Caribbean as an alternative to high-price, resort accommodations, as Benji found out here, especially in St. John’s’ Maho and Cinnamon Bay campgrounds. And the idea’s not new: “But on St. John, the expansiveness of its National Park, which […]

A Sustainable Surfing Shangri-la In Peru

Thursday, November 12, 2009

Let’s face it; Peru could be my very own Shangri-la without all these perks. Then you mix in one of the longest breaking left hand waves in the world, a chic resort that caters to local projects of sustainability, and it becomes pretty close to anyone’s ideal. Machapu Adventures, locally owned and operated, is a […]

In Search Of The Next Phuket — In Vietnam

Wednesday, October 28, 2009

In the never-ending quest to discover the “Phuket of the ’80’s,” could it be that the Vietnamese island of Phu Quoc, just off the Cambodian border in the Gulf of Thailand, is the real thing? Years away from overdevelopment, Phu Quock is known for its peaceful white-sand beaches, laid-back atmosphere, and as the world’s premier […]

Top 8 Tourist-Free Islands In Italy

Friday, October 23, 2009

For some reason one of the things I remember most about Capri (other than the beautiful sunsets, quaint streets, and maniacal Vespa drivers), is the fact that when I was there, the rumor around town was that Keanu Reeves had just stayed on the island. Not that I have anything against the guy (except, perhaps, […]

Phuket Is For Lovers . . . Of Amazing Beaches

Phuket Is For Lovers . . . Of Amazing Beaches

Thursday, October 8, 2009

For whatever reason this week seems to be “Beach Week” here at TheExpeditioner.com. Not sure if there’s something subliminal going on, what with the onset of fall and all, but I’m just going to roll with the flow and keep it going with this gorgeous video of Phuket. Sure it may be a little touristy […]

Welcome To Diu: Goa 30 Years Ago

Wednesday, October 7, 2009

I was only but a slowly developing zygote 30 years ago, but in the world of travel lore, Goa was the place to be around that magical time period during the 1970’s. Today? Not so much. But for the chance of experiencing your very own sense of discovery, try heading north to Diu. Not that […]

St. Get Me To A Caribbean Beach As Soon As Possible

Friday, September 25, 2009

The island of St. Vincent (not to be confused with the singer named St. Vincent) is actually the main island of the country of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and it contains an active volcano — which last blew its lid in 1979 — that could one day obliterate St. Vincent, leaving St. Vincent without […]

Pitcairn Island: Get There While You Can

Wednesday, September 16, 2009

This little island on the edge of the southern Pacific Ocean, is still home to the descendents of the famous “Mutiny On The Bounty.” At least for now. This Telegraph article notes the people currently living in Pitcairn may be the last generation to eek out a living there. Heavily subsidized by the British government, it […]

Colombia Calling (Part Two)

Sunday, September 6, 2009

The easy part of about Playa Grande is falling for it immediately. The hard part? Getting there. By Matt Stabile I STUCK MY HEAD OUT THE OPEN DOOR OF THE BUS and looked down a steep cliff wall that descended into a wide bay. The public buses in Colombia are usually beat-up looking affairs, with […]

Colombia Calling (Part One)

Thursday, August 27, 2009

Maybe secluded bays and pristine beaches aren’t the first things that pop into people’s head when they think of Colombia, but a trip to Colombia’s Caribbean coast reveals just that. And the best part? No tourists. By Matt Stabile AS I LOOKED OUT THE BUS WINDOW AND INTO THE NIGHT SKY, I could see flashes […]
