Video Travel Guide To Malaysia

Wednesday, May 20, 2015

In this travel video travel guide to Malaysia, I travel to Malaysia’s capital city, Kuala Lumpur, and to Terengganu, the country’s second-largest city. I start off my trip by exploring Kenyir Lake, located just west of Terengganu, which is actually the largest man-made lake in Southeast Asia (it’s the size of Singapore). I head to […]

Missing Paris: Running The Paris Marathon

Monday, May 4, 2015

Seven miles into the Paris Marathon I was content, blissfully lost in the illustrious City of Light. But then I saw the pacesetter and I was hooked. So fanatically attached to the mythical four-hour mark, I missed it all. Focused on the clock, I missed Paris. Well, almost. The day before the Paris Marathon, I […]

Feeling Tiny In Colombia’s Tayrona National Park

Monday, April 6, 2015

We stood at the entrance to a lush, tropical forest and confronted a simple yet profound choice. Do we proceed on foot, hauling our backpacks in the already thick morning air, or do we pay a local for the pleasure of mounting a time-worn horse? We picked the budget option and started the hour-long walk […]

10 Must-Try Budget Desserts In Turkey

Wednesday, March 25, 2015

After traveling the world as a nomad for a few years now, I’ve learned that it isn’t always pretty, especially when it comes to tasting a country’s most popular dishes. When you’re on a tight budget, you are typically limited to freeganism, bulk foods that can easily be carried and prepared (like pasta) or cheap […]

The Sound Of Music And Rain In Salzburg

Wednesday, March 4, 2015

When the airport of a city or town is named after a local but deceased celebrity, upon arrival in said city one can expect a challenge in avoiding the posthumous paraphernalia and celebration of the eponymous home-grown hero. For example, touching down at Liverpool’s John Lennon airport, one can expect to be inundated in the […]

The 5 Ways to Read The Directions to Happiness by Bruce Northam

Thursday, February 19, 2015

At the not-very-tender age of 35, travel writer Bruce Northam hitchhiked America from coast to coast one more time to bring awareness to the fact that it could still be done in spite of the negative P.R. the practice was receiving in the ’90s. By that time, Bruce had already been hitchhiking for two decades. His […]

Luggage Lost, Soul Found: What Traveling the World Taught Me

Tuesday, February 10, 2015

There are countless reasons not to travel: lost luggage, delayed flights, aggressive hawkers and taxi scams, to name a few. And so it was that logistical hassles, fear of the unknown and the tyranny of the status quo – not to mention the cost – all conspired to keep my wife and I grounded in […]

Here’s What It Was Like Attending Colombia’s Craziest Festival

Friday, February 6, 2015

All the babies are crying, and an old lady starts yelling hysterically. As an enormous burst of turbulence turns my stomach sideways, I catch the eye of a man who looks like Gabriel Garcia Marquez. He gives me a gruff nod and half-smile, as if to assure me that the landing is always like this. […]

Introducing Palestine: The West Bank In A Day

Tuesday, February 3, 2015

The Israeli separation wall slopes up into blue sky. I stand in the shadow it casts, dwarfed by its manmade slap of division. My friend Yuan emerges from the makeshift gift shop clutching a handful of postcards. He is particularly pleased with the purchase depicting the now iconic image of a silhouette of a young girl sailing over […]

Going on a multi-day trek through Patagonia is on a lot of people’s bucket list. Who doesn’t want to visit the Straights of Magellan, Patagonia and some of the most photogenic landscapes in the world? But if you look online the expense seems, shall we say, unfortunate.
