Barefoot Hiking Through Peru

Monday, September 11, 2017

“Come to Peru with us!” I laughed at the three drunken Danes facing me. We’d just spent a month bonding in Costa Rica and tomorrow they were leaving for South America. I was sad to see them go, but I couldn’t just up and follow them to Peru. I told them as much. “Why not?” […]

Wine, Sun And Seals: A Highway 1 Road Trip

Tuesday, September 5, 2017

Is there any more iconic way to explore California than to travel by car along the coastline, taking in views of the Pacific as you cruise at your leisure, stopping where you want and exploring all that the state has to offer? This was our goal when we set off on the Highway 1 Discovery […]

In Search Of Life In Morro Bay

Tuesday, September 5, 2017

It’s hard to compete for the attention of travelers to California when your neighbor to the north is San Francisco, arguably one of the country’s most beautiful cities, and Los Angeles to the south, which, let’s face it, doesn’t have to work hard to get noticed. It’s lucky for the Central Coast, that coastal stretch […]

After Trekking The Jordan Trail, Nothing Was The Same

Tuesday, July 11, 2017

My friend Jordan was up to his calf in water before we saw the man. The rush and spit of the river meant that we could not hear what he was saying, but from the wide frantic waving of his arms the meaning was clear. As we climbed out of the cut the engorged river […]

Ferrying Into The Heartland Of Ghana On The World’s Largest Man-Made Lake

Wednesday, June 28, 2017

Steaming up gargantuan Lake Volta in the dark of night, I gazed at a heaven full of stars above, an occasional cluster of lights along the shoreline marking a village and, here and there, radiant-red, flaring hot spots that appeared to be raging fires. As I puzzled over the blazing anomaly, Captain Eugene walked up, […]

A Powder Highway Ski Trip Through Canada

Wednesday, June 7, 2017

About halfway into the 18-minute, high-speed gondola ride up the mountain, my brother-in-law turned to me. He had a concerned look on his face. Beyond us in the distance we could see the steep vertical drops along the south ridge of the forebodingly titled Terminator Peak, the 7,900-foot mountain that caps the southern portion of Kicking […]

Iceland’s Everyday Magic Realism

Sunday, May 7, 2017

Craggy black stone towers loomed over the black sand and stone beach. A silky mist floated between the structures silhouetted ethereally from the sun. They seemed close, but with each step, our feet sunk uncomfortably into the smooth stones. My muscles clenched as I released my foot from the stony grip. It’s as if someone, […]

Maximón: Guatemala’s Chain-Smoking Savior

Tuesday, April 25, 2017

Floating mosaics of water lilies hug the sunken interiors of old buildings that line both sides of the dock. I sigh while staring at the jagged cement tops that barely pop above the surface. Water levels here have been rising steadily over the past 50 years. “There used to be a huge park here . […]
