Yoga Lovers In North America Get Your Passport To Prana

While I was living in Rishikesh, India for a couple of months, I met a yoga teacher from Canada who spends half of the year teaching in Canada and the other half teaching in India and Thailand.  She introduced me to both acro yoga and Passport to Prana. Now some of you may know what acro yoga is but what is this Passport to Prana?

Ibiza Outside The Clubbing Season

Ibiza may be the most well known party island in the world, but there is so much more to offer from the Golden Isle than hedonistic all night parties. Making a trip to the Balearic Island outside the clubbing season is an experience not to be missed. It’ll be much cheaper too.

What’s Happening With Society?

The other morning I took a bus to get to the subway station so that I could get to the gym. It was a fairly early rise for me as I tend to often sleep in. As I walked out my door, the bus literally pulled up right in front of me – I love it when that happens. I walked onto the very crowded bus to see almost every single person on their crackberries or iphones. Seriously, who are you texting in the early morning?

Doing Deco in SoBe

Good thing we got all rested up and contemplative on our crawl through the Mediterranean and across the Atlantic. Turns out we needed that huge reserve of physical and mental energy for what was to come next.

Photo Friday: The Road to Bogota

Did we ever tell you that we are planning to bus all the way down to the southern most tip of Argentina? I have seen some of the most amazing sights just starting out the window. As we headed out of Medellin to Bogota, I saw the most stunning landscapes I had seen in quite a while. They literally took my breath away.

Medellin, You Changed EVERYTHING

I felt like I was going to puke. My travel nerves were at full force that day – something I hadn’t really experienced since Mexico. I was a pro at this. Why was I feeling so shitty? “You’re already missing them.” Shaun’s replied. And you know what? He was right. Our travels have taken a completely different direction.

Italian Gelato Showdown

Now that we’ve been to Italy – and had us a lot of gelato in the country – we really get the obsession that gelato devotees have with the stuff.

A Day in Our Life (in Rome)

During this travel adventure, we’ve had a few days that are a pretty accurate representation on what life is often like for us on the road. Balancing working and exploring can be frustrating at times. And, because we’re away from home-base so much, we try hard to keep fitness and some awareness of nutrition an active part of the mix (or this would be a weight loss blog).

Nirvana in Italy’s Fat City

We loved Bologna the minute we arrived. By the time we made our way to our hotel – we even splurged and got a cab – it was well into the evening and dark.

Having arrived in italy and ready to start our “pick a random city” experiment, we had only one thing on our minds.

Travel and Social Conscience as it Relates to Egypt Today

Whether one should travel to a country or not, based on what is going on internally there, is one of the thorny questions for every traveler. Right now, Egypt is in the midst of some internal turmoil (though we all hope it ends soon) and in this post, I address my feelings on current travel there.

Top 8 Sights in Jordan You Should See

During my week in Jordan, I saw Roman ruins in Amman, the world wonders of Petra and the Dead Sea and the desert/canyons of Wadi Rum. Anything else you think should be on the list of must-see sights in Jordan?

Good Jordanian Wine?? Yes… It Does Exist

One of the things that surprised me when I traveled in the Middle East earlier this year was that there are some really good wines made in that part of the world. Both Lebanon and Israel have a series of good wineries, but I was most pleasantly surprised by the Zumot Winery in Jordan. There were some wines here that would retail for $60-100, if the label said Napa Valley.

Monte Carlo Train Station in Photos

I was lucky enough to get to the Monte Carlo train station while it was almost empty one afternoon this summer, so I had a chance to take some longer exposure shots and turn them into HDR photos. I hope you enjoy them, as it is one of the prettier stations I went to on the Ultimate Train Challenge.

Dear Older (hopefully healthy!) Selves:

Remember all of the talking you used to do about getting to the Cinque Terre one day? Well, this letter is about what happened back in 2011 when you were hoping to make it there, but it didn’t work out.

You’ve probably forgotten a lot over the last few decades, so let us refresh your memories…

Technology and Changing Family Dynamics – Welcome to the world Chloe!

Last night I cried. I cried tears of happiness as the first baby of the family was born. I cried because I couldn’t be there physically to hold her in my arms. There is one thing that I am ever so grateful for – today’s technology. We are connected at a level that has never been seen before in history.

Jaguar Rescue Center in Puerto Viejo Costa Rica

Contrary to popular belief, there are no jaguars in the Jaguar Rescue Center. Long story to be honest – but that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t take the time to hit this place up. It was a gloomy, rainy day – something we had gotten used to over the past 3-4 months had gotten used to over the past 3-4 months following rainy season south.

Our latest adventure begins.

Notes from our first few days in London…

An Interview With Nadine Sykora – Video Blogger, World Traveler, and Internet Personality

There are different ways to travel for an extended period of time. You can save up money for a while and then quit your job like I did, travel and work various jobs along the way, or find a more permanent job that involves traveling. For Nadine Sykora, traveling and sharing her experiences through Youtube videos is her job.

Reggae Beats And Great Vibes At Big Milley’s Backyard

When I think back to the summer I spent in Ghana, the first memory that comes to mind is of the night I spent at Big Milly’s Backyard in the small fishing village of Kokrobite.

The Travel Itch By Mandi Courteau

I almost felt as if I had this force field deep inside me, waiting to erupt. It was becoming so nagging that if I didn’t exert this energy somewhere I was about to seriously go crazy. This is how I describe my burning desire to travel the world and the feeling I felt everyday walking into my waitressing job.

Back To The Beginning Of My Travel Addiction – My Paraguay Experience

I want to travel back in time to the experience that gave birth to my travel bug.  It all happened during the year of 2005.   It was my last semester of high school, and spending four months in Paraguay, South America was an opportunity offered by my school as an co-op program in exchange for six credits.  I was 17 years old, and boarding my first plane without my parents to a foreign land called Paraguay.

Jump Off That Bandwagon And Explore A Place By Foot

One of my favourite things to do when I first arrive in a new place, is drop my bags somewhere safe and go on a no time restraint, no specific direction, no plans, kind of walk.  I let my senses guide me in the direction of excitement and adventure.  I stop and chat to people I meet along the way, take in my surroundings, and test my willingness to try new things.

Museum of Broken Relationships

In Zagreb, Croatia I randomly walked into the Museum of Broken Relationships thinking that it would make the subject of a funny post lightly making light of the subject matter. An hour later I walked out thinking it was perhaps the best museum I have ever been to. It was breathtaking in its emotional connection to me.

The Damascus Souk in Photos

The Damascus Souk is simply my favorite market in the world. It is huge. Simply huge. And the variety of products you can see and buy there is immense. Here are just a few of my hundreds of photographs I took on my last trip there, before things blew up in  Syria.
