TRAVEL STORIES FOR THE WANDERER:

 
 

When traveling, we're often told to stay within the lines. Sometimes lack of planning and leaving the tourist zone can bite you in the rear. We have those stories too. Puerto Barrios, Guatemala; poor planning dumped us in  a near-abandoned resort with nothing else around us, no real form of transportation, and nothing to eat but Ramen Noodle for two days....

Seashells, foreign currency, maps, tickets, a hand-drawn picture of myself. As we travel, we collect all sorts of things; memories, experiences, souvenirs, stories. Littered throughout my house are small reminders of the people I’ve had the pleasure of meeting and the places I have been fortunate enough to explore. Many of them have slowly started to blend into the background, no longer demanding my attention or forcing me to relive a moment. There is one that I haven’t been able...

Cuba : a country that has few luxuries but an undeniably alluring personality. Whether it's the classic cars that are held together by tape and string, the crumbling buildings held up by wooden scaffolding, or the welcoming people that have an irresistible charm - there are countless stories to be told here. Rooftop bars awkwardly open into a family's living room, old men ride oxen carts down the main road, and on every other corner pizzas and tamales are sold straight...

Imagine being tucked back in the African bush, far from civilization. Landscapes that rival storybooks and crystal clear...

Koh Phi Phi Islands : Thailand This is the type of place that can make postcards jealous. Its breathtaking, its extremely well traveled, and its filled with picturesque long tail boats. The islands of Koh Phi Phi and Koh Phi Phi Lee are ripped from a fairytale. The tall limestone crags frame in crystal clear waters and the powdery white sand melts softly between your toes. While your risk of getting a little too drunk, or a little too sunburned are extremely high...

I don’t think you could package paradise much better. There isn’t much the sleepy beachside town of Tulum doesn’t offer. There is a pleasant city center filled with culture and trendy hangouts. The beaches are magnificent with pristine waters and white, powdery sand. The food scene is world famous, have you heard of Hartwood? The people are friendly and the streets are lined with charming boutiques and picture worthy scenery. Ancient Mayan Ruins peek out from behind the palm trees and...
