The Spice Of Balinese Life: Notes From A Cooking Class In Ubud, Bali

Sunday, September 29, 2013

I am seated upon a bamboo mat on the ground, notebook in hand and appetite in tow. We have just returned to our lovely host home after an early-morning market excursion to purchase the necessities for our cooking lesson. Bundles of fresh tuna, ever-so-hideous jackfruit and ruby red tomatoes are just a few of the […]

Is It Possible To Actually Enjoy Bali? (Here’s How)

Tuesday, July 30, 2013

Full disclosure: I’ve never been to Bali. It’s not that I haven’t been in the general vicinity, or have had the chance to go there over other destinations that are roughly the same distance from New York, but I’ve got to admit, it’s quickly become one of the few places in the world where my […]

Okay, you can be honest with me. Spit it out. You did not come halfway across the world for this, how they call it, “Banana Pancake Trail”? I know exactly how you feel. I can tell how much you would like to throw a chair at that guy who’s mesmerizing a full table of other […]

A Lesson In Laid-Back Travel On Cambodia’s Mekong Discovery Trail

Sunday, April 28, 2013

I’m a great planner — an aspect of my personality so ingrained that it rarely faded during 10 months on the road.

Wednesday, February 20, 2013

Forget the yoga retreats, luxury spas, poolside Jamu massages, and the recently-divorced-women-of-a-certain-age that have all unfortunately come to symbolize the Bali of today.

Attempting To Understand What It Meant [Travel Video]

Tuesday, October 2, 2012

Last November we posted a great video of Ha Long Bay made by a member of our Vimeo travel video group named simply “Asintrip TV.” The makers of the video followed up with me last week to let me know they wrapped up their trip from Southeast Asia and made a “best-of” video attempting to encapsulate […]

How To Cross The Street In Vietnam

Friday, September 28, 2012

It sounds like the beginning of a joke: How do you cross the street in Vietnam? (Possible punchlines: “You don’t,” “You start by taking out a life insurance policy,” or “You buy a motorbike.”) As any visitor who has been to Vietnam knows, the quickest way to spot the newbie traveler in town is to […]

Bad News Sweden: Phuket Is Full

Tuesday, September 11, 2012

Bad news Sweden: Phuket is full. Well, not full exactly, but the Thai island (and its smaller nearby cousins, known for their white sand beaches and DEET-laced alcoholic cocktails) is on path for another record-setting year, with an estimated 4.7 million visitors expected to visit the island in 2012, up from 4.2 million in 2011.
