    A few weeks ago, I didn't even know Central African Republic (CAR) was a country.

    My principle has been that if people live there, I can visit there. But in planning a visit to CAR, I couldn't even find a single hotel online, and none of m

    Wanted to go somewhere to test out my new passport, so I booked a ticket to Georgia (the country).

    Within an hour driving around, I got pulled over by an angry officer who handed me a little tube in plastic wrapper and asked me to open it. I had no

    I’d always believed Vancouver is (objectively) the most beautiful city in the world!

    It’s the only city I’d known that’s uniquely situated between mountains and ocean. One can spend a day hiking or skiing the beautiful North Shore mountains, then en

    Goodbye Venezuela!

    Thank you for reminding me that generosity and kindness transcend economic crises and currency devaluation; that even in the midst of a dire situation, people are capable of staying beautiful.

    I was becoming increasingly nervous about visiting Venezuela, since every single person who heard about my plan to visit the country was extremely discouraging; some people bluntly told me I was pretty stupid to go.

    After one night sleeping in the freezing wilderness of Patagonia, I realized this region required more planning than I was able to muster, so it was time to fly back north to a warmer place.

    I found a cheap flight leaving in 12 hours, but the airpor

    Not having learned the lesson that some basic planning can spare me difficult situations, I arrived in Patagonia without a plan or a place to sleep. After knocking on few hostel doors, I quickly learned the small town of El Chaltén was entirely sold

    Eastern Tibet was long time in my travel plans. It is a less known part of this famous highland,

    Most people traveling to Cuba choose popular destinations such as
    Varadero or Havana. They stay in 5 star hotels, they go on some city
