You Too Can Do Paris On The Cheap

Tuesday, June 30, 2009

How Overrated Is Venice?

Tuesday, June 23, 2009

We spend a lot of time here at TheExpeditioner.com going on and on about places to visit and sights to see around the world, but it begs the question: aren’t there plenty of places you shouldn’t travel to? Of course there are, I just don’t think there’s much use spilling a lot of ink talking […]

Tuesday, June 23, 2009

It seems like we’ve read this one before: a solitary escape to the Italian countryside, salaciously detailed descriptions of food, the name dropping of small villages, but for some reason it’s still captivating, even if one Ms. Mayes is not involved, and even if there’s no Tuscan sun hovering overhead.

Beautifully shot epic short of a group exploring Barcelona via skateboard. You know it’s good if the filmmaker can […]

A Look Back At Midsummer 2008

Wednesday, June 17, 2009

I was doing some maintenance on the site yesterday when I came across my Scandinavia Blog from 2008 and realized that it was exactly one year ago to the day that I left for that trip. Isn’t it odd how something that happened a year ago can feel like it just happened as well feel […]
