Vietnam By Bike: The Greatest Trip On Earth

Thursday, February 17, 2011

Let’s pretend for a moment that I’m a jacked-up, grease-loving, motorhead that feels at home in leather pants. I would boast of my vehicular chariot’s duel exhausts, 454 “ponies under the hood,” and chrome-plated deely-bops. I’d even have the Kia logo tattooed on my right forearm. Also, I can get away with a Kia tattoo […]

SE Asia Trip Dispatch: Part Four (Angkor Wat)

Wednesday, October 13, 2010

To say that the temples at Angkor are spectacular is like saying that France has good food: no need to state the obvious. After a 12-hour bus ride through the paddy fields and flood plains along the Tonle Sap lake in central Cambodia, I arrived late in Siem Reap. Expecting nothing more than a sleepy […]

What Did You Do When You Returned From Angkor Wat?

What’s more fun than getting off a plane and immediately being hit up for cash just to step foot outside the airport? (I’ll answer my own question. The answer is: getting the seat next to the lavatory for your 16-hour flight. Oh the stories you’ll tell.) The fact is, visas are never fun, especially for […]

Compassion In Cambodia: A Traveler’s Dilemna

Friday, August 20, 2010

Compassion comes in many forms. You can give away your life savings, some extra change in your pocket, or a bottle of water to a thirsty child. It’s easy to change one person’s life, but much more difficult to change many. In fact, I think it’s probably near impossible to change everyone’s world, spreading yourself like […]

Tuesday, August 17, 2010

So you’re going to Cambodia (actually, I am in about 6 weeks, but more on that later), and once you get there all you really want to do is sunbathe nude while pointing the bottom of your feet at people as they walk by, and sticking you chopsticks upright in your rice bowl. Sounds like […]

Exploring Cambodia And Vietnam Through The Eyes Of “La Marguerite”

Thursday, July 1, 2010

Most cruise lines seek to provide its customers with what I call the “Best Of” trip (e.g., “See the Best of the Mediterranean: From Scenic Livorno to the Seascapes of San Tropez”). While this is probably a very lovely way to sail and explore, I often want to experience all of what a country has […]

A Video Trek Through Southeast Asia

Wednesday, February 10, 2010

In case you haven’t noticed, we’re big on starting travel groups on sites we like. Jon started up our flickr group for us a little ways back for photos, and I started a travel video group on Vimeo, aptly titled: “Travel Videos” (it was a less than creative day for me that day, give me […]
