    Being a Westerner growing up in the 70's and 80's, I actually never really had Japanese food until I was in my teens. Even then, it was usually just the Bento box and if feeling brave, some sushi. I'm not really sure how the food scape changed, bu...

    I am an avid scuba diver, and conservationist. I began searching for dive trips where I could do some volunteer work. All Out Africa had a program working with Whale Shark and Manta Ray Identifications in Tofo, Mozambique. I thought, why can’t ...

    Every day around 7PM he's here, maybe it's just a healthy habit to take a walk in the neighborhood after dinner. He looks like he's in his early 70s, a bit hunchback. He always sits down at the same yellow bench by this tree and lights up a cigare...

    In April of this year, my Fiance and I took a weekend trip to the Big Island of Hawaii to hike to active lava. Little did we know that just a few weeks after our departure, the Big Island would experience an earthquake that would cause an eruption...

    I travel mostly because I want to learn about other cultures, and what is a better way to do that than through food. So when I was in Taiwan, I wanted to taste the authentic local dish that all Taiwanese people cherish.

    If you ask them about t...

    Well, my travel through Asian cities this year has eventually brought me to the capital city of Taiwan: Taipei!

    Before arriving in Taipei, I have done quite some research about the city, what to do and what to eat. Yet once I arrived there, the...

    I knew I would love this place on seeing the sour-faced guards. It was late on a rainy afternoon, and they so obviously wanted to be elsewhere.
    I, however, wanted to be here. The Schwarzenberg Palace Museum is in the palace precinct in Prague, in...

    My homeland of Wales is pretty spectacular. It has a rugged coastline and stunning mountain ranges, so there is no shortage of locations to catch a beautiful sunset. I think I found one of the best last month.

    When you go to Paris, you think of the Eiffel Tower, l'Arc de Triomphe, perhaps even Versailles or French cuisine. I already shared my experiences of visiting nothing but the Eiffel Tower looking for a missed connection.

    Call me morbid, but thi...

    Myself and a few travelers I'd met in the city of Yogyakarta in eastern Java (Indonesia's most populated island); found ourselves on a train barreling towards the town of Probolinggo. Our mission was to visit the Mount Bromo, and it's excitable ne...

    I recently visited Sintra, a town long known for its villas, palaces, and connection to the monarchy. Easily a day trip from Lisbon.

    So much history, politics, scandal, just like with every aristocracy. Sintra is to Portugal as Versailles is to...

    Perhaps for someone raised on these waters. Perhaps for someone who had been using these boats from the time they could walk. As I went around in circles, my guide has his boat rocking and rolling across the water...

    Today we headed out of Bangkok for the first time. After a stop/start journey through the suburbs we got out into the countryside, and, well, WOW! This is the Thailand we'd really wanted to see! Rolling green fields, cloud topped mountains and sma...

    It was 4 am. I got up from the creaky bed and dragged up Alison and Charlotte. We were ready to head to Borobudur and experienced it's famous sunrise view.

    As we walked to the temple, we could hear chanting being broadcast in the compound. It ...

    When I graduated college, I decided to take a year to teach English in Japan. On one of the first few nights, a few of us foreigners went out to explore the city and check out the nightlife. We went to a few restaurants and bars and we all had a g...

    I've connected through Newark before, but this was my first time outside of the airport making the trek to Manhattan. I thought surely there was an easy way, but four hours later, I was still en-route.

    I had a LOT of luggage with me as I was th...

    My girlfriend and I visited Amsterdam over the holidays. It was a long bus trip from Italy to the Dutch capital without any stops, almost twenty hours of travel in a bus without sleep.

    Amsterdam was as incredible as it was beautiful. It was ver...

    During our toadtrip through the Balkans we came across Sarajevo’s Tunnel of Hope - it kept the city alive through the harrowing siege and now it has been brought back to life by the very same people.
