What Ever Happened To Biosphere 2?

Tuesday, April 26, 2011

For anyone who attended 6th-grade science class between the years 1990 and 1994, they know what I’m referring to. Remember Biosphere 2, the self-contained space-colony-in-the-Arizona-desert experiment that seemed to be part of the requisite science class curriculum alongside rainforest degradation, saving sperm whales, and making model rockets? For those of you not old enough to […]

In Search Of Northern Exposure: The Greatest Show Ever

Monday, March 14, 2011

As people who are not stupid know, Northern Exposure is the single finest American television show ever produced. Or, to clarify, it is the very best fictional series ever produced. Non-stupid people could argue, for example, that Ken Burns Civil War is similarly excellent. Some have even credited Northern Exposure with introducing dramedy, the popular […]

Miami’s Newest Hotspot Is A Parking Garage?

Wednesday, February 9, 2011

This time of the year, folks from all over the world flock to the white sand beaches and warm temperatures of South Florida (especially those of the New York persuasion). And like many a hip city around the world, Miami is home to an ever-rotating cast of hotspots for the wealthy and connected to attempt […]

How I Became A Man v. Food Show Convert

Thursday, September 23, 2010

There’s no question Anthony Bourdain reigns king over everything travelers dream about — getting paid traveling around the world with a film crew documenting it all. His snarky personality and textbook Kung Fu displays create perhaps the purest travel show that exists. When the Travel Channel was bought by the the owners of the Food […]

TheExpeditioner Mailbag: An Invite From Prof. Albus Dumbledore

Thursday, May 27, 2010

Dear Matt, It has come to my attention that you may have a bit of doubt regarding Hogwart’s School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Upon my request, the Ministry of Magic believes, along with Hogwarts, that to mutually benefit one another, muggles and non-muggles should live together. It is with that in mind, on June 18th, the doors will […]

Happy Birthday Glacier National Park

Wednesday, May 12, 2010

Looking back, there is really only one reason that I ended up in the state of Montana: the awesome beauty of Glacier National Park. After finishing school on Alaska’s Kenai Peninsula, I deemed it only appropriate that I continue to surround myself with that kind of majestic beauty. A previous road trip through the park […]

A Quest Of The Mind, Body And Soul Atop Wyoming’s Heart Mountain

Monday, April 19, 2010

Rising from the plains of Wyoming, Heart Mountain has stood for eons, witnessing everything from the formation of the Great Plains to the internment of thousands of Japanese Americans during World War II. Trek to its peak for a view millions of years in the making. By Thomas M. Hill and Scott D. Slothower Jutting […]

Know Your Passenger Rights!

Thursday, March 25, 2010

I had no idea I could be compensated for a delay. I thought delays were just part and parcel of taking the plane,  domestic and international. Apparently we have rights as travelers, something worth considering when sitting for an overnight delay or last-minute cancellation. You could get a food voucher! I would be interested to know for […]

Finding The Real Hawaii One Bite At A Time

Thursday, March 4, 2010

Quickly, name the first thing that comes to your mind when I say, “Hawaiian food.” I thought so, probably pineapples, roast pig luau — all those stereotypical Hawaiian things, right? I don’t blame you. I’m definitely not a resorter, and won’t be any time soon, but those touristy eats are the same things that pop […]

Is The Train The Best Way To Travel?

Thursday, February 4, 2010

I have always thought of the train as the most romantic way to travel. Maybe it´s because you can sit back and relax, doze off without swerving into traffic. Maybe it´s because you get to see other paths other than the pavement. I don´t know what it is, but I love taking trains. When I read […]
