Did You Check Out The New “Destinations” Page Yet?

Wednesday, October 14, 2009

Bowing to the intense pressure of the public at large (okay, a friendly suggestion from an Australian friend and a certain Contributing Editor), TheExpeditioner.com introduces the new “Destinations” page. Heading somewhere specific? Daydreaming about a certain locale? One click on the “Destinations” link brings you to a handy breakdown of all past posts and articles […]

Tried And True: Japan On The Cheap

Wednesday, October 14, 2009

Japan’s reputation is true; it is expensive as you’ve heard. Matt pretty much nailed it with this post, but it doesn’t have to break the bank (but don’t expect a SE Asia kind of cheap). With my own trip now concluded, I thought I’d share some first-hand knowledge I’ve learned to make it easier to […]

Your Guide To Cheap Luxury In Southeast Asia

Tuesday, October 13, 2009

Now that the dollar is back on its seemingly inexorable decline against most world currencies, it’s about time for Americans (and East Timorians, Panamanians, etc. . . ) to start thinking again (as if they weren’t already) about those cheap destinations around the world where the dollar still gets some traction, like Southeast Asia. If […]

That Time I Had Malaria In Mozambique

Tuesday, October 13, 2009

And I thought that I was just a little hungover, maybe even a little dehydrated. Unfortunately, anytime you’re traveling in a region where malaria has not yet been eradicated (as I was when I was traveling in Mozambique last month), even the smallest symptoms should be taken seriously. Per the CDC, such symptoms include “fever […]

Conquering Tanzania’s Mountain Of God

Sunday, October 11, 2009

Many of Africa’s greatest adventures lie well away from the main tourist trails. Cameron Fergus climbs Oldoinyo Lengai in Tanzania for a new perspective on God and man. By Cameron Fergus “It’s a volcano, as long as we keep going up we’ll be fine.” My girlfriend’s plan to abandon our guide, though ambitious, was also […]

Tokyo: The Electronics Promised Land

Sunday, October 11, 2009

I’ve never been to Norway, until that happens, I won’t know what it’s like to visit the place of your ancestry. For the last couple days, this question has been spinning through my mind as I took my little Sony camera through the streets of Tokyo. Not quite the futuristic, Jetson-like city I had first […]

Time To Give A Little Back: Philippines Edition

Saturday, October 10, 2009

As a kind of bookend to the week here, the Philippines has been in the news all week as a result of some of  “the worst floods to hit Manila and nearby provinces in four decades.” If you remember, we started off the week with a story from Justin Calderon from his own trip to […]

Bing vs. The Other Guys: Who’s Got The Cheapest Tickets?

Friday, October 9, 2009

In the spirit of “Beach Week” (not to be confused with “Shark Week”, that other perennial, much ballyhooed 7-day national holiday), I decided to conduct a very unscientific study: How does Bing’s new search engine hold up? Let’s say I wanted to head to Curacao in late January during my birthday to scuba away those […]

Phuket Is For Lovers . . . Of Amazing Beaches

Thursday, October 8, 2009

For whatever reason this week seems to be “Beach Week” here at TheExpeditioner.com. Not sure if there’s something subliminal going on, what with the onset of fall and all, but I’m just going to roll with the flow and keep it going with this gorgeous video of Phuket. Sure it may be a little touristy […]

Welcome To Diu: Goa 30 Years Ago

Wednesday, October 7, 2009

I was only but a slowly developing zygote 30 years ago, but in the world of travel lore, Goa was the place to be around that magical time period during the 1970’s. Today? Not so much. But for the chance of experiencing your very own sense of discovery, try heading north to Diu. Not that […]
