111 Chambers St # A, New York, NY 10007, USA
I didn't have change for the meter, but then I looked up and saw the bank. Problem solved! But then I realized it was closing in 30 seconds. I had a decision to make... Do I take a shortcut to the teller and get the change...or do I waste money in...

Meet Jose. As of my first trip to Oahu in 2009, Jose had worked at a diner in downtown Waikiki for 29 years. He was our server that morning - a soothing elixir to our hungover and woozy spirits. All we wanted when we plopped ourselves into the...

Vang Vieng, Laos
After hearing the horror stories of drunk high-school graduates floating on inner-tubes from bar to bar, I was determined not to visit Laos’ Vang Vieng. I didn’t come half-way around the world to hang out in bars watching Friends. But, as fate...

Have you ever seen a man in a wet suit playing the bass cello? How about a band of 5 guys in wet suits? Walking into Side Bar (East 7th and Red River) I thought to myself, how weird and so very appropriate to stumble upon this sight while at SXSW...

McMurdo Station, Antarctica
Working at McMurdo Station offers no promise of seeing wildlife. However, one amazing summer weekend, a crowd of Adelies came to visit and observe the human contingency posted at Ross Island, Antarctica. Humans are prevented by order of the...

1428 Post Alley, Seattle, WA 98101, USA
Taking just the 'right' wrong turn on a visit to Pike Place Market can land you in Post Alley, where spearmint, wild cherry, and tropical punch bubble gum drizzles down the window panes and grape, peppermint, and lemon ice gum-cicles form from...

3800 Chemin Queen Mary, Montréal, QC H3V 1H6, Canada
Mark Twain, when visiting Montréal, wrote: "this is the first time I was ever in a city where you couldn't throw a brick without breaking a church window." The general vibe here is no longer very religious, though. Montréal, in fact, has one of...

Av Central, León, Nicaragua
With its doors almost always open, the cavernous interior of the Cathedral is a welcome place to pause at mid-day. The majority of homes and many businesses in León don't have air-conditioning, and the Central American sun at noon can be a cruel...

Al Haram, Nazlet El-Semman, Al Haram, Giza Governorate, Egypt

Traveling with mom to a destination that many tend to shy from. We had an incredible journey traveling throughout Egypt and cruising down the nile.

Indochina
Walking through a local market in Bagan, Myanmar and came across a little girl and her mother sitting waiting for customers. The girl had thanaka covering her face as did many local people. It sort of looked like a mask, but as they say, the eyes...

28 Frost St, Brooklyn, NY 11211, USA
The Sketchbook Project lives within the Brooklyn Art Library, filling their entire left wall from floor to ceiling. Yes, leave it to a place as cool as Brooklyn to have an art library. Anyway, my friend and I stumbled onto this fascinating place...

I took the East Austin Studio Tour while visiting in November. One of the stops was a warehouse shared by several wood, fabrication and print studios. They built a creative and inviting porch with a play area in the front lot complete with a...

A visit to the Perhentian Islands is a must if you find yourself in Malaysia and want some beach time! If you want a nice quaint island stay on Perhentian Besar. If you are looking for more action then stay on Perhentian Kecil, but even Kecil is...

Bagan, Myanmar (Burma)
The secret to having a good time in Bagan has nothing to do with getting there - all that takes is faith in a Burmese pilot and his ancient aircraft, or an unwavering belief that your 13-hour bus ride from Yangon will actually deliver you to the...

Japan, 〒381-0401 長野県下高井郡山ノ内町平穏6845
I left tropical Southeast Asia for Japan in the dead of winter for one reason - to see snow monkeys. I'd always seen pictures like the one above, of zen macaques in steaming hot springs surrounded by snow, and had no idea how accessible they were...

All roads in Krakow lead to Rynek Główny, the largest medieval market square in Europe. In the city's heyday, this central point would have been full of merchants and traders who would bring and take away all manner of goods in their...
