Chao, Exped!

With Matt’s successful return, my short but sweet run as guest editor here at TheExpeditioner.com comes to a close. I suspect that, even if I had the time to continue posting, there wouldn’t be room on the page — Matt undoubtedly has enough stories from Africa to fill it from […]

Travel Motivation From The Big Screen

In a manic episode of escapism, and don’t ask me why, I happened to grab the movie “Sound of Music” off the shelf. In a recent post, I shared not seeing “Lord of the Rings.” I must apologize yet again; I haven’t seen this classic in its entirety, until last night. What […]

The Most Dangerous Road In The World

I’ve been on some white knuckle roads in my life; the ones you switchback up nothing much more than a concrete trail up sheer cliff face. Sure, it’s a feat of engineering, but will traveling on said road be a feat of another kind? Yes. Among others, this road I’m […]

Make Travel Your Life

Quit the 9-to-5. Sell the house and car. Cram it all in a single pack. Buy a plane ticket. Never look back. This is the stuff of daydreams for thousands, if not millions, of travel addicts. For Christine Gilbert, of almostfearless.com, it’s reality. In 2008, she bid farewell to the […]
