Travel Charms

9 Comments 19 November 2013

I’ve been traveling for 7 years, thanks to a little luck, I’ve had relatively few bad luck experiences. Sure, I’ve experienced some issues – luggage delayed a number of times, flights canceled, items stolen, faulty gear, and illnesses. But none of these things were ever really serious or horrible. Not like my friend Charlie’s story [...]

Faking It

9 Comments 09 April 2013

Sometimes I feel like I’m one of those people living in the US for 20+ years and they still don’t speak English – yet they somehow get by. I used to look at them and wonder how that was possible. How can the old woman in China Town get through each day without really knowing [...]

Meat Lovers Parrilla Tour

1 Comment 02 April 2013

It’s 11:30PM, you are drinking Malbec and socializing with friends across a long table.  The noise is deafening – but it’s the noise of joy, fun, and laughter that only friends can share.  Your waitress brings out a big plate of sizzling meat and sets it in the middle of the table with a cloud [...]

Earlier this week I wrote all about the two famous glacier treks you can do in Argentina/Patagonia.  One of my favorite things about trekking Perito Moreno and Viedma glaciers were the views and perspective you had on the ice.  You can’t really appreciate the sheer size and power of a glacier until you walk on [...]

I looked around the table and wondered – how did this happen? How is it that at 43 I’m the youngest one on this hiking trip AND I’ve got the dullest stories? For the first time in my travels, my travel and adventure experiences are overshadowed by the people around me. I eagerly ask them [...]

Coming to My Rescue

8 Comments 19 March 2013

I’m walking towards the door, I remember reaching my hand to grab the handle and turn and then my vision went black. I feel arms around me as my legs go limp and I feel like one of those toy giraffes who’s limbs were held attached by elastic string. When you hit the button on [...]
