Ferrying Into The Heartland Of Ghana On The World’s Largest Man-Made Lake

Wednesday, June 28, 2017

Steaming up gargantuan Lake Volta in the dark of night, I gazed at a heaven full of stars above, an occasional cluster of lights along the shoreline marking a village and, here and there, radiant-red, flaring hot spots that appeared to be raging fires. As I puzzled over the blazing anomaly, Captain Eugene walked up, […]

Can A Backpack Really Handle Both The Trail And The City? Let’s Find Out

Monday, June 19, 2017

The first indication you have that MHM Gear’s new Sultan 50 multi-day backpacking-sized pack is different than other bags on the market is the signature S-shaped zipper wrapping around the length of the product. From the top pocket to the base, the trademarked “Snake-Loader” zipper allows users to access the entire contents of the bag […]

A Powder Highway Ski Trip Through Canada

Wednesday, June 7, 2017

About halfway into the 18-minute, high-speed gondola ride up the mountain, my brother-in-law turned to me. He had a concerned look on his face. Beyond us in the distance we could see the steep vertical drops along the south ridge of the forebodingly titled Terminator Peak, the 7,900-foot mountain that caps the southern portion of Kicking […]

Iceland’s Everyday Magic Realism

Sunday, May 7, 2017

Craggy black stone towers loomed over the black sand and stone beach. A silky mist floated between the structures silhouetted ethereally from the sun. They seemed close, but with each step, our feet sunk uncomfortably into the smooth stones. My muscles clenched as I released my foot from the stony grip. It’s as if someone, […]

Maximón: Guatemala’s Chain-Smoking Savior

Tuesday, April 25, 2017

Floating mosaics of water lilies hug the sunken interiors of old buildings that line both sides of the dock. I sigh while staring at the jagged cement tops that barely pop above the surface. Water levels here have been rising steadily over the past 50 years. “There used to be a huge park here . […]

A Mongolian Bus Ride To Remember

Monday, March 27, 2017

I started my journey from Mongolia’s capital, Ulaanbaatar, the only real connection point for most of the country’s transport network — much like the center of a spider’s web. Except unlike a spider’s web, which is normally extraordinarily neat at its center point, the bus station there was anything but. It consisted not of a […]

Lessons Learned Having Lunch With The World’s Most Famous Butcher

Monday, March 13, 2017

As I parked my car, my belly began to rumble. I hadn’t eaten anything since Friday afternoon, almost 24 hours before. No need to waste stomach space when you’re going to visit the world’s most famous butcher, after all. I was in the small, hilltop village of Panzano in Chianti, in the scenic countryside between […]

Naked On The Loveliest Beach In The World

Wednesday, February 22, 2017

Steep, narrow and lacking guardrails, the crumbling cement road to Myrtiotissa Beach, Greece, appears to be headed over a cliff, and my husband, two young daughters and I along with it. Leaving the car parked slantwise along the shoulder, we continue on foot, the trill of cicadas rising and falling in the dusty summer heat. […]
