Punta del Este: A Rainy Weekend In Paradise

Tuesday, February 9, 2010

Three months flew by and before I knew it, I had to renew my tourist visa for Buenos Aires. The wonderful thing about Bs. As., other than the beef and beauty, is that the city is across the river from Uruguay. A one-hour ferry ride got me and my friends to Colonia, but we didn´t want to stay […]

Is Everybody Talking About Nicaragua’s Little Corn Island?

Wednesday, February 3, 2010

So what does it mean exactly when the Wall Street Journal is talking up Nicaragua? Is it kind of like when you were a teenager and the second your parents had heard of your favorite band you instantly thought that band wasn’t cool anymore? (See, in this extended metaphor the WSJ is your parents ’cause, […]

The 5 Must-See Beaches In Vietnam

Sunday, January 31, 2010

Your guide to the five must-see beaches in Vietnam. Vietnam, a country reminiscent of a war-torn epic that rang of rock-and-roll, decadence, and destruction­ was, up until recently, visited by only the adventurous traveler. Though late in its arrival as a member of part of the Southeast Asian travel belt, today this crescent-shaped land with […]

So You’re Looking For The Best Island In Southeast Asia . . .

Friday, January 29, 2010

We’re going to be running a piece on Monday about the five must-see beaches in Vietnam, but in an effort to get everyone in a Southeast Asia state of mind (my first and likely last Billy Joel reference ever on this site) we’re taking a look at Budget Travel’s top seven secret islands of Southeast […]

An Experience In Unique Mozambique

Thursday, January 28, 2010

This week, the Globe summarized what traveling ought to be, no matter where you go: experiencing authentic culture. Although Northern Mozambique may be a haven for the elite, true culture can still be experienced at Mozambique Island, a UNESCO-protected island. Leaf, with help from his host, Luis, decided to savor dinner at the night market […]

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

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 […]
