Nude Travel: The Last Frontier?

I have to admit, though I have not partaken in this form of travel, the opportunity nude travel offers in the form of traveling lightly by way of packing a minimal amount of clothing is a little bit intriguing. (I’m always looking for ways to lighten my bag — as […]

2010 Olympics Day 8: Cross Country Skiing And Barenaked Ladies (Not That Kind)

I survived the hangover of 2010, and got up early this morning so I could catch a bus to Whistler Olympic Park, about 9 km down the Sea-To-Sky Highway from Whistler Village. I had a ticket to the Classic Style Cross Country Sprint races. Since I’m cross country skiing illiterate, […]

2010 Olympics Day 6: Men’s Downhill And Whistler’s Olympic Revelry

My head could spontaneous explode at any moment, so if this blog stops randomly in the middle of a sentence, someone call my parents. The showcase event of any Olympics is the men’s downhill skiing competition. This one is no different. When I was looking at tickets before I came, […]

2010 Olympics Days 4-5: Luge (The Wildest Sport On Earth)

I believe I described skeleton, right here on TheExpeditioner.com, as “extreme headfirst sledding, in tights, somewhere within Avatar’s Pandora.” I still hold that to be true (stay tuned, there might be some tickets for these shenanigans in my future). So take that description, replace “headfirst” with “feet first,” and you […]

Olympics Day 3: 12 Hours In Vancouver (Mardi Gras — Olympics Style)

There’s really no excuse for me to only spend 12 hours in a city like this, or any city for that matter, but alas, I’m trying to keep a schedule. Vancouver: bustling, urban, chic, innovative, I had to see it all. Could I? I mean, I had Opening Ceremony parties […]

2010 Olympics Day 2: Smitten By Whistler-Blackcomb

“Dude, wake up.” “What?” I felt like I was coming out of a coma. “It’s snowing. Get your shit, we’re skiing today, and no one’s gonna be on the mountain.” I didn’t need a whole lot of prodding. He could’ve stopped at “snowing” and I would’ve been in. Whistler-Blackcomb Resort […]

Bill Murray: “No Reservations” Co-Host?

Anthony Bourdain and Bill Murray, together at last. On this week’s Hudson Valley-themed episode of “No Reservations,” who else but Bill Murray stopped by at the end for a ribeye dinner with Tony. Why? Not really sure, other than to fill us in on some of his past travel antics […]

2010 Olympics Day 1: Preparation

The Olympic Games (exhale). Well, not quite yet. Those officially start Friday, but don’t tell Whistler. Based on their scurried preparation all day, I’d say they know how much time they have down to the second. For me, my trip to the 2010 Games started with a fourteen-hour drive and […]

Best Blunders In The Lands Of Other Languages

So we´ve all heard: Learning a second language is hard. It´s also often hilarious to the ears of native speakers. Countless novice Spanish speakers have accidentally been very horny when they meant to say they were hot. During my friend Kayla´s first week studying in Japan, she found herself sitting […]

Double Take: A Legless Man’s Travels Around The Globe

I was handed a book recently, and, let’s be honest, books that are given to me have to be good given my propensity towards restlessness. It’s titled “Double Take: A Memoir.” I never heard of it, or the author before, so I sat down and gave it the ol’ “fifty-page […]
