You’ve probably heard that Ibiza is the party capital of the world; It’s a title that’s well deserved! My trip to Ibiza came about because I drank way too many mimosas and booked a cheap flight. I’m not sure why my mimosa-brain chose Ibiza because to be honest, the all-day […]
Thanks to having a wild need to make my dreams come true, a serious problem with impulse control, and a stubbornness that only my Mother would understand (because it totally came from her), I went to Australia with no money. Is that stubbornness or stupidity? Either way, I spent four […]
After arriving in Brisbane to begin my four months in Australia, my friend Elizabeth and I decided to make Byron Bay our first destination. We loved it so much that when our trip was coming to an end, we returned to Byron Bay one last time. Byron Bay is the […]
Gros Morne National Park is a World Heritage Site on the West Coast of Newfoundland, Canada. If you’re spending any time in Newfoundland, especially in the summer, Gros Morne is a must see. If you’re an outdoorsy person, you’ll never run out of things to do in Gros Morne. There’s […]
When you think about Colombia, your mind doesn’t automatically jump to beaches, sunshine, and fresh fruit salad served up from street carts, does it? Most people think of guns, cocaine deals and misery; but in six weeks of travelling around Colombia, I barely saw a glimpse of anything like this. […]
France is a place that I slightly have a hate/love relationship with. I do really enjoy parts of France and the scenery can be some of the most spectacular in the entire world. The French people on the other hand…. Let’s just say that old line about France — “France […]
Recently I was contacted by some folks wanting copies of some of my old photos from a number of locations. Hopefully they end up liking some of them and using them. It did make me go back and re-edit some of my pictures from my RTW trip in 2009-10 though, […]
I had the chance last fall to head to Grenada to spend a month or so with one of my good friends who works there. I scored a really great couple of sailboats to stay on there though my friend, including a 43 foot catamaran that I fell in love […]
I am writing this quick post from the wonderful little beach town of Dahab, Egypt on the Red Sea, following my 2011 travel plan so far. The question I got most often before my little jaunt over here to the Middle East from everyone back home was twofold, “why go […]
First, an update on the recent weeks. I got to Lebanon about a month ago and spent two great weeks there. Then a quick week in Syria and now I am a wonderful week-long guided tour of Jordan, sponsored by the Jordan Tourism Board. The problem? Hardly any time to write.
Over breakfast a few weeks ago in Tobago, I was listening to the conversation of a table of four locals next to me. The only man was an older man that looked, and sounded, like he had immigrated from India at some point. He had a big, sweeping, bushy mustache and his English was a mix of proper British style English, that I imagined he learned in India, and more of the local creole dialect, which is damn difficult to understand at the speed they throw it out.
As you read this, I am in route from Bogota, Colombia to St. George’s on the island of Grenada. This whole trip came together on Sunday, October 24th and five days later, I am on a couple planes (yes, I feel like a traitor to my overland travel roots) to […]
