As many of you knew, I was tentatively planning on heading out to Africa for a 14-day safari with a friend of the site, Dan of Grass Track Safaris, but the timing ended up not working out so I had to go it alone. Anyway, Dan got back safely from the continent and had some […]
Holly Morris of Globe Trekker (whose mother wrote the biography that “Brian’s Song” was based) treks out into the deserts of Niger to track down one of the continent’s few remaining traveling caravans. I like how at 2:11 when Holly and her film crew finally come upon the caravan after God knows how long of […]
One of the highlights of visiting Victoria Falls in September during the “dry” season is the accessibility of Devil’s Pool, a 100-meter high natural pool formed as a result of a well-placed rock wall just below the surface.

Nice shots of Paris, Barcelona, and Rome. The only part that made me cringe was the “Where The Hell Is Matt” reference at 2:08. Sigh.
This video was taken in May, during the wet season, one of the best times of the year to visit Victoria Falls (plan now!). Check out the unforgettable views from the helicopter at 0:48 if you want to become completely enamored with the thought of traveling there.
In Part Two of my travel guide to Dublin, Ireland, I head off the beaten path to get a better sense of the city. I begin by checking out an international graffiti festival featuring artists from around the world. Later, I take in some traditional Irish music at a private show in my hostel, then […]
