Cycling in Snowdonia

Cycling in Snowdonia: that just sounds like an awesome place to cycle or mountain bike. Sure enough-it is! Snowdonia National Park in North Wales is a beautiful piece of the world and a seldom-visited area of Great Britain-at least by mainstream tourists. Truthfully, cycling in Snowdonia in March (when I did it) requires some cooperation [...]

Via Ferrata Cumbria

I had never heard of Via Ferrata until a few weeks ago when I was traveling in Great Britain. I was spending 3-4 days in the Lake District in Northern England for the first time since 1998 and was to do a bunch of really cool activities. To be honest I wasn’t that excited to [...]

My Australian Open Experience

For Americans and many people in the Western Hemisphere, the Australian Open has always been that tennis tournament that was on in the middle of night every January.

Guantanamo Bay, Cuba: What It’s Really Like

I went to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba (GTMO) with no expectations, no preconceived notions and an open mind. Of course, I had heard all the criticisms, opinions, and negative media coverage but as always, I wanted to see it for myself and form my own opinion. So after five days on the Guantanamo Bay Naval Station, [...]
