Central Asia
I have had my fill of adventure traveling: corrupt officials, motor bike bus chases and the odd pack of wild dogs are all situations I have met and survived. But for whatever reason, when it comes to heights, the hurdle is always that much harder...

Lake Bohinj, 4265 Bohinjsko jezero, Slovenia
It's a bit cold, yes - even in August. But the spectacular views and pristine water easily make up for the chilly swimming. We packed our beach towels, bought a few cold beers, and hiked around the lake for awhile until we found a more secluded...

Nuwakot,, Trisuli 44900, Nepal
To experience Nepali life off the tourist trail, head to the one-lane town of Nuwakot, a four-hour bus ride northwest of the overcrowded alleys of Kathmandu and an easy detour on the way to the popular Langtang trek. Terraced rice paddies, pumpkin...

Last summer, Tim and Kathy Turner took a break from the Mont Blanc hiking circuit for a night at Refuge des Mottets, a French backcountry lodge decorated with cowbells and old iron cookware. The Turners, from the United States, were the only...

Historic District, Luang Prabang, Laos
You haven't done Asia until you've done a temple stay - so sayeth a snobby backpacker I once met. I hate to admit it, but that snobby backpacker was on to something; nothing replicates the experience of breaking bread with a monk, discussing the...

Don Kaeo, Mae Rim District, Chiang Mai, Thailand
So close to Chiang Mai and yet a million miles from the dread-locked backpacker posse fighting to stay on their raft whilst carrying an elephant with a Hmong villager clinging onto their ankle for dear life... this place is the perfect retreat for...

The town was such a surprise. It is right on the beautiful coast of the South Island of New Zealand. The whole country is breathtaking but Nelson is a hidden gem. Many a night were spent drinking beers on the beautiful beach with friends I had met...

Kabin Buri District, Prachin Buri, Thailand
The train was probably the best decision I have made as a form of transportation in Thailand. We woke up early to catch the 5:55am train at Hua Lamphong Railway Station in Bangkok to Aranyaprathet. Then it was only a ten minute tuk tuk ride to the...

When I think of India, words like color, life and vibrant....raw, open and warm.... come into my mind. From the perspective of a Westerner, India is beautiful chaos. Life opens up in Varanasi, India, along the banks of the Ganga. Arrive at sunrise...

Mühlwiese 12, 6166 Fulpmes, Austria
Doug’s isn’t your typical hostel, as there are only 8 or so beds in the entire place, but it’s the best place to experience the Austrian Alps. Located a 30 minute tram ride away from Innsbruck in Fulpmes, this is as Alpine as it gets. Picture the...

Over 1,000 years ago, a king built a walking bridge for his people. It helped them get to the markets faster than traveling on boats. The bridge remains today, just as it was all those years ago. Generations have crossed it to get to the markets....

If you know me at all you know that I'm not much of a backpacker. Don't get me wrong - I love hiking, camping, trekking, and the outdoors more than most people. What I don't dig is sitting around ramshackle guesthouses with 20-something tourists...

During college, I found a random photo online of an Italian village jutting into the sea; cue sunset backdrop. I posted the no-name land on Facebook with the caption, "Hello, place I will someday go." More than four years later, I stood, awed,...

Ansted, WV 25812, USA
We're crazy about waterfalls, and rarely give up a chance to see one. 2011 had been a hot, dry summer in West Virginia. There was a chance that Mill Creek Falls would not be flowing. Along the rail trail leading to the falls, we passed an old...
