It’s a Jungle Out There

5 Comments 23 September 2014

“The tarantulas are out all night so they won’t care if we are running a bit late,” our amazon jungle guide responded when I asked him if we could move back our night jungle hike in order to watch the World Cup USA/Portugal game. I was actually surprised at his answer for two reasons. First, [...]

Inca Trail Alternate Route

5 Comments 11 September 2014

Taking the Inca Trail through the Sun Gate to Machu Picchu seems to be on everyone’s bucket list these days. The problem – not everyone can go on the Inca Trail (even if you plan it months in advance) as there are only 200 tourist permits given out a day for the trail. If you [...]

War Games Along the Lycian Way

As the light started to filter in through the tent I heard it. Chug, chug, chug, chug, chug, chug. The even puttering sound was soothing to wake up to, but when my mind woke up and remembered where I was – camping at a remote lighthouse in Turkey – I was immediately confused. I should [...]

Lycian Way By Land and Sea

11 Comments 16 January 2014

I stared out at all of the boats and yachts on the vivid sapphire blue water and wondered – what the hell am I doing here on the rocky ground, when I could be gently swaying on a boat? The Turkish Mediterranean coast is some of the most lovely in the world. Most people who [...]
