Anthony Bourdain In Big Sky Country

It finally happened. For the first time in over a year living in Asia, I got a bit homesick. Danggit, Anthony Bourdain, if you just weren’t so good at what you do! The new episode of “No Reservations” on the Travel Channel visited Livingston, Montana aired not long ago. It’s […]

Go Mideast, My Son

The Middle East has been popping up all over the travel webs of late. First, Matt brought us the news of Gulf Air and Iraqi Airways’ plans to begin regular commercial flights into Baghdad. Then, just yesterday, Jon pointed us to a travel article featuring Amman, Jordan‘s capital. But it […]

Antarctica: The Triple Crown

Finally, the age old question has been answered. While looking for the ideal spot for an observatory, scientists “discovered” what is thought to be the coldest, driest, and calmest place on earth.

Get Ruined In Jordan

I am always leery of reading about the Middle East as a travel destination. I should know better, the volatility doesn’t engulf the entire region, and once you’re there, you are guaranteed to experience a history dating back to before Western civilization was even thought of, sprinkled with some modern […]

End-of-Summer Roadtrip in…Namibia?

Despite being the second most sparsely populated country on the planet, Namibia is adventurously drivable, intensely beautiful, and perhaps even a bit luxurious. That’s the gist of a recent travel article in the Guardian, which recounts a 12-day loop trip through the south of the country. Though the roads vary […]

Please Bump Your Head Carefully

The reign of Chinglish, the inaccurate public displays of translations, and the source of enjoyment for visitors to China, may soon come to an end in Shanghai. Although you can decipher the message in almost all cases, the numerous files of digital photos telling you to, “leave your values at […]

The Wide World Of Micronations

It’s been three years since the Lonely Planet Micronations hit the shelves. Assuming this one isn’t sitting on your shelf (it’s not on mine); I wondered where I had to go to say I’ve visited one of these pint sized nations. At any given time, there are numerous of these found […]

The Latest in Flight Delay Prediction Technology

I’ll admit, I have pretty good luck when it comes to flying. While my suitcase is usually among the last to pop out on the baggage claim carousel, I’ve never had one go missing. And despite averaging around 10 flights per year, seldom are they delayed, let alone canceled. But […]

Nothing Like A Nice Cup Of…Weasel Regurgitation?

Wandering the labyrinth of streets that makes up Hanoi’s Old Quarter district, by no other skill than dumb luck, I found myself on Hang Hanh Street, in other words, “Coffee Street.” I claim not to be a connoisseur in the way of the bean, but have always appreciated a quality […]
