Should You Travel To Burma? An Ethical Debate

Thursday, February 11, 2010

A recent article has brought up a question that most seasoned travelers end up asking themselves: Is travel sometimes bad? Some may say that it drives the economy in countries or cities that have seen their resources depleted, no longer able to provide for the ever-increasing mouths, bodies and minds to feed. Some people believe […]

A Video Trek Through Southeast Asia

Wednesday, February 10, 2010

In case you haven’t noticed, we’re big on starting travel groups on sites we like. Jon started up our flickr group for us a little ways back for photos, and I started a travel video group on Vimeo, aptly titled: “Travel Videos” (it was a less than creative day for me that day, give me […]

The 5 Must-See Beaches In Vietnam

Sunday, January 31, 2010

Your guide to the five must-see beaches in Vietnam. Vietnam, a country reminiscent of a war-torn epic that rang of rock-and-roll, decadence, and destruction­ was, up until recently, visited by only the adventurous traveler. Though late in its arrival as a member of part of the Southeast Asian travel belt, today this crescent-shaped land with […]

So You’re Looking For The Best Island In Southeast Asia . . .

Friday, January 29, 2010

We’re going to be running a piece on Monday about the five must-see beaches in Vietnam, but in an effort to get everyone in a Southeast Asia state of mind (my first and likely last Billy Joel reference ever on this site) we’re taking a look at Budget Travel’s top seven secret islands of Southeast […]

The Sepia-Toned Pandemonium Of Hanoi, Vietnam

Tuesday, January 12, 2010

I arrived in Hanoi airport after a white-knuckle roller coaster courtesy of the lingering typhoon in the area. I had no idea what to expect, really. My idea of Southeast Asia was something along the lines of a ramble through Cambodia and Laos. Like the good relationship maintainer that I am, I put those on […]

Saigon From The Backseat

Sunday, January 3, 2010

A tour of Saigon from the backseat of a motorcycle. By Justin Calderon It’s dusk in Ho Chi Minh City — or Saigon as it is still called here — and the haze of the last ounce of light from the crimson setting sun is smothered in smog as I make my way through the […]

Not A Typical Day In Cambodia

Wednesday, December 30, 2009

I have yet to meet a person who is not fascinated with Cambodia. Even if the person has no desire to visit the country, they never stop asking about the people, the culture, the safety, or the temples. It’s difficult to describe Cambodia because of its past ancient civilizations, a relatively recent genocide, and the […]

Diving Papua New Guinea

Wednesday, December 30, 2009

Maybe it’s the -15 I see on my thermometer this morning that is making tropical destinations front and center on my mind. I have to personally thank the crew at GoNomad for taking me to the island of Papua New Guinea. I couldn’t have imagined a better mental getaway. Battling jet lag, the author describes […]

Deep Water Soloing Thailand’s Koh Poda Island

Friday, December 25, 2009

Kayak to a limestone spire jutting defiantly out of the Andaman Sea. Climb said rock formation without that cumbersome safety gear. Willing or not, jump from spire into the ocean safety net waiting below you. Simple, yeah? Only after you squash an episode of fear-induced vomiting. I’m in. Where can I sign up? This article […]

Eating At Your Friendly Neighborhood Balinese Warung

Thursday, December 24, 2009

There are people who like to eat local and then there are people who like to eat local. It’s quite a difference. Eating street side vendors is often an experience, a lesson in culture, and a deliciously cheap meal all wrapped up into one juicy, roasted, suckling pig. Ibo Oka is what the Balinese locals call […]
