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.

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.

In Search Of The Next Phuket — In Vietnam

Wednesday, October 28, 2009

In the never-ending quest to discover the “Phuket of the ’80’s,” could it be that the Vietnamese island of Phu Quoc, just off the Cambodian border in the Gulf of Thailand, is the real thing?
