One of the most important trips I've veer taken was a honeymoon that spanned 10 months across 15 countries. There were a slew of places that really shaped me into the independent traveler I have become. This collection shares some those key places.

There's no other day hike in all of New Zealand that is as diverse as the Tongariro Alpine Crossing. The terrain is so unique, the location was used to portray "Mt Doom" in the Lord of the Rings films. The nearly 20 kilometer trail winds into high...

San Telmo, Buenos Aires, Argentina
The attractive San Telmo barrio began as an upscale area before tenement living took over. It’s back big-time now, helped by its famous antique flea market. On Sundays tourists and locals descend upon the Plaza Dorrego and its side lanes for...

Everest Base Camp Trail, Khumjung 56000, Nepal

On the trail to Everest Base Camp, it's commonplace to find an impressive mountain view. I took it for granted on the road even though I stopped frequently to gawk and stare. Looking back through my high altitude photos from my trek to Everest...

Baidam, Pokhara 33700, Nepal
After spending time in the numbing chaos of Kathmandu and trekking the arduous trail up to Everest Base Camp, Pokhara felt like a tropical island. Cows and water buffalo roamed the streets, the traffic was only minimal. The road was actually flat,...

Chong Kham, Mueang Mae Hong Son District, Mae Hong Son 58000, Thailand
I woke up one morning in Mae Hong Son to a thick morning fog. I'm no stranger to fog as I grew up outside San Francisco, but fog in a foreign place always feels different. It somehow shrouds an already mysterious place in even more mystery. I...

Santiago, Santiago Metropolitan Region, Chile
On a quiet side street in the Providencia neighborhood of Santiago, this dog patrolled passers-by. He protected his colorful home from travelers and locals alike. It's buildings like this that made me curious about Chile.
