Save Place
Panama City, Panama
I love exploring a city without any plans and letting spontaneity drive your nights. The experience of getting lost in a warren of side streets and stumbling across little bars and restaurants packed full of locals having a great time is one of my...
Save Place
Almora, Uttarakhand, India
In 2008 I took an overnight train from Delhi up to Almora and spent five days trekking through the valleys and hills of Almora, staying in local villages as we moved through the bewitching landscape. It was a both humbling and uplifting...
Save Place
Brandberg West Mine, Namibia
One of the most desolate places on the planet but one of the most beautiful also. I travelled through this striking landscape for a week and fell in love with it a little more each day. Just when I thought it could get no better I would turn a...
Save Place
Þórsmerkurvegur, Iceland
For good reason Iceland takes the plaudits when it comes to stunning landscapes. My favorite memory of this country is driving along the southern coast and at sunset trekking behind waterfalls such as Seljalandsfoss to watch the sunset through the...

64200 Biarritz, France
The view from this corner bar encapsulated great people watching, excellent French cider and a surreal view of the ocean looming above street level.

People talk about the Amazon as being the home to Brazil’s best wildlife. Few may argue with this but for me, the better place is the vast area of jungle and swampland that is the Pantanal in southern, central Brazil. I lived and trekked for two...
Save Place
Red Square, Moskva, Russia, 109012
I lived in Moscow for a year a decade ago. My favorite way to capture the spirit and magnitude of this city was to take a post-midnight walk through Red Square. It would often be near deserted at that time and was never better than when snow was...
Save Place
Lalibela, Ethiopia
Travel is about living with and experiencing life through the local’s eyes. A favorite moment for this was when I found myself dancing with the locals in a bar set high on a mountainside to Ethiopian music in the hills of the northern Ethiopian...
Save Place
Jyväskylä, Finland
As the son of a Finnish mother I was lucky to spend my summers growing up in this magical country. A country that has thousands of lakes where the water is so clean you can drink it like bottled water makes for special place. Last summer I spent a...
