Alaska: Part 4

If you’re just starting off, you might consider these first: Alaska: Part 1 Alaska: Part 2 Alaska: Part 3 Day Seven (Cont’d): Ye Olde Bunque Haus is owned and operated by Pat McGee, an octogenarian who has run the hostel for ages. The main house serves as the classier hostel. The “bunque haus” in the […]

Alaska: Part 3

If you’re just starting, you probably ought to read Alaska: Part 1 and Alaska: Part 2 first. Day Four: I was too excited to sleep much. As quietly as possible, I arose, slid into my boots, and slipped outside. Clouds swirled around the peaks that towered over me. In the distance, back toward Talkeetna, I could […]

Alaska: Part 2

If you’re just picking up here, you might consider reading Alaska: Part 1, first. Day Three: The stifling heat of the four-season single-wall tent woke us with no mercy. The tiny vents at the top of the tent let in little more than hundreds of vociferous mosquitos. The past few days in Alaska temperatures had […]

Costa Rica: Esterillos Oeste and el Gris

We have this car, right? The name of the car is Gris (grees). Gris is a 1988 Toyota Tercel 4WD Wagon. On earlier trips here, I drove Gris all the way to the Nicaraguan border, onto the beaches of Puerto Soley, to Esterillos Oeste, Puntarenas, and everywhere in between. My last trip down here, I […]

El Campeonato de La Tigra de San Carlos

Sunday I had the propitious opportunity to attend the campeonato de futból de La Tigra de San Carlos. Some readers may know that La Tigra de San Carlos is on the northern slopes of the cordillera de Tilarán. It is a small rural community; most people who live in La Tigra farm or work in […]

Costa Rica: Montezuma and the Trip Home

Montezuma. I’ve been there a handful of times, and every time is just a little bit different. The first time I wound up there, I was with my buddy with whom I traveled throughout Central America and three of our friends who had come to meet us there. We stayed at a villa on the […]

Costa Rica: Travel Day

We left the house around 5:30. The bus was coming at 6:00. Nobody was thrilled to be awake so early. It would have been way more convenient to have hired a private shuttle from La Tigra to Montezuma. But we weren’t interested in traveling like tourists. As anyone who has traveled extensively knows, much of […]

La Tigra de San Carlos

The first trip with our travel company (that is yet to be named) was to Costa Rica! My partner and I have traveled there extensively; I’ve spent over seven months there throughout my life. We have come to enjoy and appreciate the country and its people immensely, and so were overjoyed at the opportunity to […]

Our New Business!

I wrote this as an author’s note in my last post, but want to make sure that everyone sees it. I’m writing this a pre-announcement. Stay tuned for the real deal. My girlfriend (and now business partner) and I have been unbelievably busy the last two months starting our new personal growth travel business! I […]

England Trek: Bolton Castle

Bolton Castle is a photographer’s dreamscape. Not only is it among the more well-preserved castles in England, but there is also ceaseless medieval entertainment. Because parts of the castle have crumbled away, the lines and shapes that the eye are drawn to are magnificent. The eraser of time has opened up most of the roof […]
