A Journey Back In Time In Sri Lanka

Tuesday, August 23, 2016

I did exactly what you aren’t supposed to do: I looked down. For average non-acrophobes, it probably wouldn’t have meant much, but for those of us with a healthy fear of impending death (including a related fear of snakes, spiders and Abba), the idea the narrow metal staircase leading me to the apex of Sigiriya, the 6-story-high […]

How To Pack A Wet Tent: A Trek Through Torres Del Paine, Chile

Friday, August 5, 2016

The mountain itself seemed to be hurling millions of tiny frozen pellets from every direction, some even rising up from the ground, all apparently aimed directly at our eyeballs. It was impossible to tell the depth of the snow, as it blasted across some rocks leaving them bare, and piled improbably high where larger rocks […]

Here’s What It’s Like To Climb Sigiriya, Sri Lanka’s Ancient City In The Sky

Sunday, July 17, 2016

Two things tend to come to mind when you’re visiting Sigiriya, Sri Lanka’s somewhat newly discovered ancient city in the sky. First, it’s usually something along the lines of, “This is the coolest experience ever.” Second, it’s also usually something along the lines of, “I hope these stairs hold, because if not, then I’m a […]

My Four-Day Trip To Peru To Try Ayahuasca

Sunday, July 10, 2016

The sun was setting over the horizon, which meant the mosquitoes were getting ready for dinner. It was time to get inside. I was way out in the sticks, in a small jungle compound sitting next to a tributary of the river Amazon about a two hour’s boat ride from Iquitos, the nearest town and […]

This Is The Next Bag You Are Going To Want To Buy

Wednesday, July 6, 2016

I have to admit that it’s rare that I get excited about a piece of luggage. Actually, I think it’s rare that anyone gets excited about a piece of luggage. That being said, I’ve been lugging around my admittedly pretty ordinary, very workmanlike Revo brand carry-on for the last few years, and it’s been very […]

Zanzibar On The Mind

Tuesday, June 28, 2016

The men sit and they wait, casually oblivious to my watchful gaze. I am standing on a small stretch of beach that straddles Zanzibar’s main Town, Stone Town, and the narrow ribbon of Indian Ocean, which separates the island from the African mainland. Fifteen traditional dhow boats wait expectantly at the water’s edge, tiny waves […]

Learning To Lime In Anguilla

Tuesday, June 21, 2016

Of the few stores situated on Anguilla, I saw two that were named “Limin’,” and they were wildly different. One was a boutique that sold high-end, brightly covered beach apparel and jewelry. The other was a large, run-down grocery store that sold the likes of Spam, sweetened bread rolls and coconuts. It took me longer […]
