Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia
Severely dehydrated, severely under-dressed, severely cold (the sum of these parts means, of course, that I am severely stupid) my travel partner and I dragged our sorry carcasses through the woods and over rocks in the dead of night in search of...

Jomsom 33100, Nepal
Reporting live from Upper Mustang: We've successfully hiked in and out of this remote, inaccessible region in north-central Nepal over terrain that was variously bleak and spectacular. We traversed rocky, sandy trails (I use that word loosely)...

The Veerabhadra temple in Lepakshi, India (also simply known as the Lepakshi Temple), isn't the easiest place to get to. It's a 120 km journey north of Bangalore through rural villages. Your best bet for getting there is to hire a driver for the...

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...

Milford Track, Fiordland National Park 9679, New Zealand
One of the greatest walks in New Zealand, the Milford track is just over 50 kilometers and leads into the famous Milford Sound. Considered one of the most beautiful places in New Zealand, the Milford Track is categorized as one of New Zealand's...

The top wildlife viewing experience of my life. Hands-down. So wild, remote, unplanned...no other people, no other vehicles. Damaraland is my favorite region of Namibia - incredible scenery, geology, views, stars, and so few other travelers. Stay...

Breathtaking, awe-inspiring and terrifying. A hike to the Mendenhall Glacier.

Tasiilaq, Greenland
Ammassalik Island is in the fjords of eastern Greenland - one of the most stunning and harsh places I've ever been to. This spot was at the end of an 8-hour grueling hike where we were led before our guide realized that our campsite was actually...

Derrybawn, Glendalough, Co. Wicklow, Ireland
Reaching 30 meters into the sky, the Irish round tower at Glendalough, or the valley of two lakes, dates back to the time of Saint Kevin. After visiting the monastic sites, I climbed to the top of the valley for a heavenly view of the historic...

Monacnapa, Blarney, Co. Cork, Ireland
Do better way to experience a bit of mythical Ireland is to make a pilgrimage to the famous Blarney Castle. Make your way up to the top of the castle to kiss the famous "Blarney Stone" for the gift of eloquence. Stroll around the castle grounds...

Glen of Aherlow, Gortnafurra, Co. Tipperary, Ireland
On our drive from Cashel down toward Cork, we took a scenic detour to drive through the Glen of Aherlow, a valley dotted with farms. The Glen of Aherlow Nature Park has several trails of varying length and difficulty that make for a good place to...

Rathclaren, Farrannagark, Kilbrittain, Co. Cork, Ireland
On the coast south of Cork, this beautiful house is tucked away among cow pastures. The beds are comfy, the bathrooms clean and spacious, the doggies are friendly, but the thing that really struck us was how blissfully quiet it was. They had...

We weren't going to leave Ireland without seeing some legitimate bogs. This road, which we don't think even has a route number, delivers the boggage. It's in the Connemara, and we drove there on a day trip from Galway. You take N59 to R341 and...

2 Sea Rd, Galway, Ireland
When the cashier at the Guinness storehouse in Dublin found out I was going to Galway, her hometown, she suggested checking out the Crane Bar for traditional music. Based on the crowds that showed up, this is not a great secret. But it's still...

In the middle of the Burren, the region of Western Ireland defined by its limestone landscape, you can see how ancient people lived at the Caherconnell Stone Fort. It's an archaeological site where they've reconstructed the 'ringfort' homestead...

Coast Road, Craggycorradan East, Doolin, Co. Clare, Ireland
OK, just to be clear, you don't actually stay in a castle. The tower house is next door and it's behind a locked fence. I checked. But you do stay in a stately house with high ceilings and antiques. A sitting room looks out over fields to the sea,...

While this picture may appear calm and serene, the journey to reach this point was anything but that. It was truly an adventure, and once you arrive you will be grateful that you made the journey. You start off in Kuala Lumpur at about 8 a.m.,...

18 Folgate St, London E1 6BX, UK
There is no sign for Denis Severs' House. Walk down Folgate Street in Spitalfields, look for a flickering gas lamp over a relatively nondescript door, and knock. Wait. Eventually, someone will come to the door and welcome you into the past. It...

Swain's Ln, Highgate, London N6 6PJ, UK
Why would anyone spend a day in London walking through a cemetery? Morbid fascination? Possibly. Voyeuristic peek into past lives? Probably. Highgate Cemetery is a peaceful and leafy resting place for over 170,00 souls, although rumor has it not...

20 Maresfield Gardens, London NW3 5SX, UK
The Freud Museum in London is off the beaten path in a lovely part of the city, and the museum is a house and garden well worth the visit. The entrance fee is much less than the cost of a psychoanalytic session, but you only get to see the couch,...

9a St Thomas St, London SE1 9RY, UK
Part of the old St. Thomas Hospital, the Old Operating Theatre and Herb Garret really was a functioning operating room where students (and spectators) crowded in to watch live surgical procedures performed without anesthetic. Wooden and metal...

Euston Rd, Kings Cross, London N1 9AL, UK
This was the meeting point for my friend Newman and I once I arrived in London. I didn’t have a cell phone and his was pretty much useless for phone calls. He was staying near Kings Cross Station, so we settled on meeting here at 10pm on Friday....

17 Gough Square, London EC4A 3DE, UK
No trip to London is complete without a trip to Dr. Samuel Johnson's House in Gough Square. It's impossible to leave without a strong sense for the man and for his life in London, and the house is a beautiful sight to behold in its own right (and...

13 Lincoln's Inn Fields, London WC2A 3BP, UK
Sir John Soane was an 18th-century architect who died nearly 200 years ago. He was also an undiagnosed hoarder. The man's townhouse, which has been left untouched since his death and which free to the public, is an extraordinary jumble of his...

Art lovers in London should not miss the Courtauld Gallery. Housing one of the best collections of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist works outside of France, this museum features pivotal works by Manet and Van Gogh. The pastel walls, detailed...

The second largest atoll in the world, Rangiroa is made up of over 240 tiny islets (or motu) ringed by a string of coral—a layout that, from the air, resembles a giant pearl necklace lying in a bed of blue velvet. The lagoon between all the...

Spend more time in Cambodia. Making a three day tour to Preah Vihear from Siem Reap qualifies nicely. This World Heritage site has been contested between Thailand and Cambodia for a millennia. Fighting still breaks out making things edgy. We...

Hiking the Great Wall was an amazing experience. What made it even better was going to Simatai, which isn't as heavily visited as Badaling and other parts of the Wall. It's harder to get to and takes more effort to reach, but it's worth it. The...

Orcas Island, Washington, USA
At the strong recommendation of people familiar with the region, we were told the San Juan Islands are a "must." It didn’t take long to see why. Just the 75-minute ferry ride from Anacortes (90 minutes north of Seattle) to Orcas Island was one of...

Ever since our boys were old enough to look through a pair of binoculars, we’ve been going on whale watching excursions every chance we get. Our fascination with whale’s tails started in the summer of 2001 when we took our first outing off the...
