Recently I spent two weeks in the Philippines exploring Palawan and Manila. Check out what I saw and did during that time. They say, “It’s more fun in the Philippines,” and I got to find out for myself that the country certainly lives up to its tourism slogan during my visit in October for TBEX Asia Pacific. Below is my 15-day itinerary, along with some of the …

After spending a relatively quiet Fall in Boston, I was able to squeeze in a 10-day trip to Peru over Thanksgiving. During that relatively short time, I managed to hurl myself down massive sand dunes, soar over the desert in a Cessna, cruise on a traditional reed boat on Lake Titicaca, and hike through the jungle to the magnificent Machu Picchu at dawn – and, of course, have a pisco sour or two …

I know I’m biased, but I think there’s no better place on earth to spend the fall than in New England. Last year I missed out on all the pumpkin beers, changing leaves and abundance of gourds since I spent October through December traveling in Southeast Asia. This year, however, I needed to stay put and make some money.

After spending most of the past year in Southeast Asia and India, and then suffering through a terribly cold and snowy spring, I was happy to stick closer to home this summer and take advantage of what I consider to be the best time of year in Boston. I spent a lot of time near the water,  another Green River Music Festival Now that the temperatures …

Following a busy summer in Boston, I embarked on a 10-day adventure to the vibrant country of Colombia. From the hot pink and bright yellow houses that line Cartagena’s narrow streets to the pale blue waters surrounding Isla Baru to the deep green mountains that soar over the high-rise apartment buildings of Medellin, Colombia is saturated with color. Here is proof, in the form of the Instagram photos I took during my travels …

Instagram Roundup: My Daily Life in Chennai

My home base for the seven weeks I spent in India working with The Travel Scientists on the Rickshaw Challenge and India’s Cup adventure races was Chennai, formerly known as Madras. Chennai is the fourth-largest city in India and the capital of the southern state of Tamil Nadu on the eastern coast. Despite its population, it’s not as popular with travelers as the larger, northern cities, and that …

After recovering from the Rickshaw Challenge in Sri Lanka, I hit the road again with The Travel Scientists, this time in a car. India’s Cup Ambassador car rally left from Chennai and took me through six southern Indian states over two weeks. Even though I desperately missed the excitement of traveling by rickshaw, we were able to cover a lot more ground and take in some incredibly …
