Save Place
No one could have ever imagined that one day there would be a tourist shop here, selling T-shirts and maps, fleece jackets and bumper stickers. But today there is, at this renovated former British refuge hut. Roughly half of the 30,000 who visit...
Save Place
San Pedro de Atacama, Antofagasta Region, Chile
My favorite small town in the world. Period. Dusty and dry, located on the edge of the Atacama desert in South America’s Altiplano (High Plains) this little post-hippie adobe town has boomed in recent years as tourists have “discovered” the north...
Save Place
Taranna TAS 7180, Australia
We kayaked halfway around Australia’s heart-shaped island state in four weeks and almost every night dined off what we caught or pried from the sea. When the tide was low, we would pull over and knife oysters and clams from the coral and bake them...
Save Place
Tuamotus Islands, French Polynesia
The Tuamotu archipelago – 78 coral reef atolls spread north and east of Tahiti – are just remote enough they’ve not been spoiled by excessive tourism. There are a few high-end hotels, but just a few. Instead of tourism, the local economy is still...
Save Place
Hanoi, Hoàn Kiếm, Hanoi, Vietnam
One of my favorite big cities in the world because it was designed by a Frenchman, thus low buildings and big skies (see Washington D.C. and Paris). Nothing can be built taller than Ho Chi Minh’s mausoleum. Start the morning observing tai chi...
Save Place
Hội An, Quang Nam Province, Vietnam
Just a little away from the more touristic area of this beautiful city, we find real life settings in quiet streets.
Save Place
Aleutian Islands, Alaska, USA
The Aleutian Islands, days away from civilization, with winds blowing 70 mph and pouring rain, I'm glad that I like to write (with pen and paper, because there are no battery chargers). Dutch Harbor is a main point of interest, but the whole of...
Save Place
Ave du Prince Hīnoi, Pape'ete 98713, French Polynesia
There are many accessible waterfalls on Tahiti that are perfect for a refreshing shower or swim after a hike or long car ride. If it is good enough for the locals..why not?
Save Place
Ul. Butina 2, 22243, Murter, Croatia
The biggest national park in Croatia is made up of 89 islands in the northern corner of the Adriatic Sea. Located along the coastline known as Dalmatia, Kornati National Park is accessible from Zadar. It boasts islands that are not much more than...
Save Place
Wandering the many alleyways of Dubrovnik, Croatia. Such a beautiful place!
