Planning That Dream Nicaraguan Wedding

Party. Destination. Wedding. What’s not to love? In my own search for the ultimate wedding (think– wedding piñata), I couldn’t help but continually envisioning my impending wedding as the destination type.

Perilous Patagonia In Peril

It has been some weeks since returning from the Argentine-side of the Patagonian region. I was affected by its immensity and beauty. To be quite honest, I find the experience hard to put into words — which is the reason I have not written extensively on it. From Bruce Chatwin […]

Taveling Patagonia Around Ruta 40

I’m sitting on the bottom bunk of my hostel in El Calafate, home of the famous Perito Moreno Glacier, and exhausted from a days journey by bus from El Bolson, a tiny hippie-town nestled in the Andes. What was exhausting was not the 26 hours spent in a barely reclinable […]

The Boca You Should Be Visiting This Winter

Something you hear alot of this time of year (especially in New York) is: “I’m heading down to Boca for the weekend.” Chances are they’re probably not referring to Bocas del Toro, the Panamanian archipelago located in the Caribbean near the Costa Rica border.
