Puerto Princesa Subterranean River

A few years ago, the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River was named one of the new seven wonders of nature. At the time, it was one of two that I had not been to: the other being Komodo Island. So when the opportunity for this cruise on the Azamara Quest came up and I saw I […]

South Pole Video

It’s the day after Christmas so exactly one week since my friends and I stood at the bottom of the world. My good friend Patrick put together this amazing South Pole video. It’s a great watch and really captures the experience of the day from the nervous excitement and anxiety, to relief, to pure elation […]

How I Made it to the South Pole

I made it to the South Pole!!! After years of planning, attempting, failing and tons of time, energy and money-I finally made it to the South Pole and it was every bit as incredible as I knew it would be. Standing at the bottom of the world, where so few have been before me, was […]

Meteora is Otherworldly

I’ve wanted to go to Meteora, Greece before I even knew where it was. I remember watching the James Bond film ‘For Your Eyes Only’ as a kid and thinking, “Wow that place looks cool”. Fast forward some 25 years later and there I was in Meteora and it was just as cool as I […]

5 Awesome Things To Do in Aswan and Abu Simbel

On my seventh trip to Egypt I finally made it all the way down to Aswan and Abu Simbel. This trip had been years in the making as each prior visit I had always gone elsewhere in Egypt saying next time. This time was next time and I couldn’t have had a better experience. There […]

5 Awesome Things to do in and Around Whistler

I first went to Vancouver and Whistler in October 2002 during my first British Columbia trip right after I quit my job for the first time. I basically fell in love with the lifestyle in Whistler and I don’t even ski. I basically just hung around, hiked, mountain biked and wasted a few weeks chilling […]

As many of you know, I am co-writing a book about 20 of the 98 people who have ever visited every country in the world. The book is going to be a Q&A format with each traveler and there will be a lot of other background and substance. I just answered my questions and the […]

5 Things to do in Western Newfoundland

Western Newfoundland is a place that few people know much about. If you know Newfoundland at all you probably know it as that big island off Canada that you fly over on the air map on your plane en route to Europe and back. You may also know that several planes were grounded there just […]

Molokai is the Most Interesting Island in Hawaii

Molokai is the least populated of the inhabited Hawaiian Islands but certainly one of the most beautiful. Molokai is a step back in time; it feels like something out of the South Pacific like the Marquesas Islands or the Solomon Islands; certainly not America. Molokai is laid back and slow-paced but there is much on […]

Hiking Mount Kosciuszko in Australia

The seven summits are the highest peak on each continent. To achieve climbing the seven summits is about as rare as traveling to every country in the world; very few people have actually done it. In 2006, I climbed Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa; which is the highest peak in Africa and was my first seven […]
