Oranges, Chickens And The Reason I Signed Up For Spanish Classes

Saturday, January 6, 2018

On our last day in Pedasi, a Pananamian fishing town 200 miles from Panama City, 4 people from the multi-generational family who lived next door stood in my kitchen. There was the lady of the house, her 11-year-old daughter, a man I had never seen before and a visiting, out-of-town aunt. I showed them the […]

Borders, Bandits, And Baby Wipes: A Big Adventure In A Tiny Car

Sunday, December 17, 2017

Inspired and challenged by his quests of “getting there,” Bassam Tarazi and two friends signed on for the infamous Mongol Rally, a nearly 10,000-mile road trip from London to Mongolia, through terrain that would make a mountain goat’s knees buckle, in a vehicle that was little more than a go-kart. Borders, Bandits, and Baby Wipes […]

Siem Reap, home to the majestic temples of Angkor, has long been on the map as a must-visit destination for any traveler to Southeast Asia. The grandiosity of ancient Khmer civilization overwhelms visitors as they walk through the unfathomable complexity of Angkor Wat, stare into the faces of Bayon and witness mother nature’s might in […]

Into The Great, Wide Open: The Ultimate Alaskan Fishing Trip

Tuesday, November 14, 2017

Through the windshield, I watched the de Havilland’s front propellor spin furiously as our small 8-person prop plane hurtled forward through the Alaskan sky. It was a bright, clear morning, and below us I could make out the outlines of a few of the small islands that make up the Alexander Archipelago. Looming in front […]

What’s So Bad About Falling In Love On The Road?

Monday, October 2, 2017

“Whatever you do, don’t fall in love.” This is the advice my resident advisor gave me when he found out I was heading to England to study abroad for a semester during my senior year. It has stuck with me ever since, not because I thought it was a good bit of wisdom, but because […]

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?” […]

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.
