10 Films That Have Inspired Me To Travel

Tuesday, September 15, 2009

One of the upsides to having other contributors to the site is that I get to piggyback on their creatively and ingenuity to create my own posts. So here we go. Anyway, Jon’s post about films that inspire travel got me thinking about which flicks make me want to hit the road. Yes, I did […]

Chao, Exped!

Tuesday, September 15, 2009

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 scroll-bar top to scroll-bar bottom. […]

Travel Motivation From The Big Screen

Tuesday, September 15, 2009

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 struck me wasn’t the music, or […]

He’s Baaack . . .

Monday, September 14, 2009

It’s true, despite the better wishes of the Unites States Customs Department, I’m back from Africa and now here in the U.S. Remember that sinking feeling you had as a kid after leaving an amusement park, your mind dwelling on all those rides that you missed out on and couldn’t wait to come back and […]

Tower of Pisa Is No Longer The Leaniest

Monday, September 14, 2009

The famous Leaning Tower of Pisa in Italy may have finally met its match. For years, the citizens of Bedam, Holland claimed their Tower of Walfridus, in Bedam, Holland, had more tilt. It was shorter, less iconic, and (technically) wasn’t as tilted. All true, until now. Recently, this Telegraph article explains, after discovering the increasing […]

Travel the Eco-World

Sunday, September 13, 2009

If you haven’t had yourself an eco-travel experience yet, don’t worry. You will eventually. This trend in travel is here to stay, and it’s spreading fast.

The Most Dangerous Road In The World

Saturday, September 12, 2009

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 talking about is the legendary […]
