tt. Sa Pa, Sa Pa, Lào Cai, Vietnam
I went hiking through the rice paddies in Sa Pa, Vietnam (northern mountain area). The town is swarmed with Hmong girls trying to sell handicrafts, following you throughout the city from the minute you leave your guest house. So yeah, it's full of...

RT 8, Morondava 619, Madagascar
Baobab trees, which grow up to 100 feet tall and 30 feet wide, carry a prehistoric grandeur worthy of their title as Madagascar’s national tree. Of the six ancient baobab species native to the African island, only the largest, the Adansonia...

It's great to walk around the spice market, where a dizzying cocktail of sweet, spicy, and earthy aromas fills your nostrils. But don't forget to walk into the significantly less pleasant-smelling chicken market, where people barter and purchase...

Ganga Path, Kathamndu 44600, Nepal
Durbar Square in Kathmandu makes for a fascinating visit. It's difficult to tell in a way where the ancient square begins and Kathmandu proper ends, so entwined is the old and new in this city. A tourist hotspot and a hangout for locals, Durbar...

Tehran, تهران Ferdowsi Avenue 198 11316، 91144, Iran
Iran may be one of the most misunderstood countries in the world. While this ancient civilization—and the region as a whole—is undeniably going through a period of turmoil and change, the sensationalist newspaper headlines and...

Kenai Peninsula Borough, AK, USA
It was the experience I was most looking forward to when planning my trip and it did not disappoint! On a beautiful Alaskan summer day we took a 30 minute sea plane ride on the Kenai peninsula out to a little john boat where we took another 15...
