Santa Teresa

Santa Teresa

Posted from Address not found. Friends of mine have been going to Costa Rica for years. Some particularly go to Santa Teresa, a surf destination on the west coast.  I’ve heard so many good things about this country, that it was a relief to finally step foot here and see what all the fuss was […]

can you Cancun?

can you Cancun?

Making Cancun my introduction to Mexico probably wasn’t the best idea. Why? It’s a tourist zone. Plain and simple. But in order to begin our trip from Yucatan to Panama City, we had to start somewhere. Where could travel be more efficient than a place filled with heaps of tourists? From the airport to downtown […]

Koh Mak – the secret paradise

Koh Mak – the secret paradise

Posted from Ko Mak, Trat, Thailand. When a traveler comes across something special, like a magical or idyllic place unspoiled by the riggers of tourism and commercialism, especially in Thailand, they get very excited.

Sure, there’s resorts and bungalows absolutely everywhere, and maybe it’s because it’s low season, but it seems like Koh Lanta didn’t sell their soul to tourism the way so many […]

Hua Hin

Hua Hin

Posted from Hua Hin, Prachuap Khiri Khan, Thailand. A cheap and easy way to get anywhere from Bangkok is to take the BTS to Victory Monument and catch a minivan to your destination. I did this and paid 180 Baht to get to Hua Hin in about three hours. I’m still getting Mario Andretti for […]

if this is it

if this is it

Posted from Motueka, Tasman, New Zealand. The coolest part about living on an island in the far corner of the world is that the rest of the world is a place I can truly say is quite far away – on so many levels. There’s a sense of isolation here. An almost roguish inkling to […]

Vienna

Posted from Address not found. The train ride from Salzburg to Vienna is a short journey. There are a few train stations in Vienna, with trains departing and arriving from different locations. I wasn’t sure where my ticket would leave me, but the transportation system in the city is excellent and very straight forward to […]
