The Embattled Island Of Corrigador, Philippines

I wouldn’t consider Manila a “destination” as far as destinations go. It’s one of those cities you fly into then spend a day or two getting your feet wet before you go to the places you’ve come to see.  Although that may be somewhat true, the few days I spent […]

Seeing Real Phuket (Without The Tourists) By Any Means Possible

You find yourself paddling a lagoon in the Dr. Seussian islands, about 20 kilometers northwest of Phuket, Thailand.

The Day I Spent Teaching In The Philippines (Without Any Warning)

What does one do when thrust into the unexpected situation of teaching a class of 57 children in the capital of the Philippines? Why, sing, of course. A trip to the Philippines is always an education, but this time I’d planned on taking things easy. Rather than sail out into […]

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

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 […]

The Sepia-Toned Pandemonium Of Hanoi, Vietnam

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 […]
