Looking Back And Looking Ahead: Contributor Brittany Weaver Shares Her Travels

Wednesday, January 6, 2010

Brit is holding down South America for TheExped, specifically Buenos Aires, and perhaps eating some of the best beef imaginable. She shares her thoughts of ’09 and possible destinations for 2010 with us. 2010 Destinations 2010 will start, for me, out of need. I have to renew my tourist visa, thus Uruguay, being a popular choice, is […]

Live Like A King In India (At Least For A Day Or Two)

Wednesday, January 6, 2010

India’s definitely one of those countries where its sheer magnitude is sometimes hard to get your head around. Take for example the fact that in 1947 the country was comprised of 565 princely states, most of which was home to their own extravagant palaces. What, you say, not content with shacking up in a hostel […]

No Carry-Ons For U.S. Bound Passengers From Canada

Tuesday, January 5, 2010

Since Christmas, it appears that flyers bound for the U.S. from Canada are going to have to pack a little lighter. In the wake of an attempted attack on Delta Airline Flight 253, Canada has tightened security in the nation’s airports, brought to my attention by an article in The Globe and Mail. After further […]

11 Amazing Pictures Of The Burj

Tuesday, January 5, 2010

Check out these 11 amazing pictures from Spiegel of the newly-opened Burj, “Dubai’s newest symbol of megalomaniacal opulence [that] can be seen from Bedouin oases in the desert up to 100 kilometers away.” I like picture #4 which describes how the so-called “Chimney Effect” would work on the massive tower: The tower is so tall […]

Saigon From The Backseat

Sunday, January 3, 2010

A tour of Saigon from the backseat of a motorcycle. By Justin Calderon It’s dusk in Ho Chi Minh City — or Saigon as it is still called here — and the haze of the last ounce of light from the crimson setting sun is smothered in smog as I make my way through the […]

Hands Down, The Best Views In The World

Thursday, December 31, 2009

It’s the cliché, “pictures don’t do it justice” phenomenon, yet, it may be true. What gets me is how these invoke your curiosity. It leads me to wonder what, and where, is possible in the world. I will never forget when I rounded a corner along the Parks Highway in Alaska (just about where the […]

Video: Addicting Aquarium

Thursday, December 31, 2009

This short video of the world’s second largest aquarium in the world — Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium in Japan (the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta is the record holder, for now, until this beast in Dubai opens next year) — is strangely hypnotic given that it’s a single-shot of a bunch of marine life swimming by at […]

Not A Typical Day In Cambodia

Wednesday, December 30, 2009

I have yet to meet a person who is not fascinated with Cambodia. Even if the person has no desire to visit the country, they never stop asking about the people, the culture, the safety, or the temples. It’s difficult to describe Cambodia because of its past ancient civilizations, a relatively recent genocide, and the […]
