Traveling Through the Andes Mountains

Santiago de Chile is about 20 hours away by bus from Buenos Aires, but thankfully in Latin America bus companies provide several options besides just a regular coach bus seat.

What to See and Do in Kyoto

Kyoto is a beautiful city in Japan with an ancient past. If you appreciate seeing firsthand how the foundations of a culture were laid as well as centuries-old architecture, you can’t miss it. Probably the easiest and most cost-effective way to get to Kyoto from Tokyo is to take the Shinkansen (high speed train). Along the way, you’ll be rewarded [...]

Visiting North Carolina's DuPont State Forest

The DuPont State Forest is a great system of trails for hikers, swimmers, bird watchers, bikers, and more. It’s about an hour’s drive from Asheville, North Carolina, and a lot of the terrain is rocky so I can’t stress enough that you’ll want good shoes.

Iguazu: The Eternal Falls

Iguazu consists of a park, split between Argentina and Brazil, that boasts some of the biggest waterfalls in the world. Even when I was consulting with a fellow creative writer, we were just at a loss of words to explain their glory and enormity. Pictures don't do the place justice. Iguazu is the Guaraní word for "big water." According to [...]

Exploring the Blue Ridge Mountains

The forested valleys of the region surrounding Asheville, North Carolina are famous for their breathtaking sights. It’s certainly worth a drive or even a hike to the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Staying at a Youth Center, Community Bath Time, and Other Adventures in Tokyo

Youth Center If you’re looking for a relatively cheap place to stay in Tokyo, the National Olympics Memorial Youth Center should be a consideration. The rooms are very bare: they only have a bed, desk, and hangers. The pillow is so hard and flat I almost thought about using a rolled-up t-shirt instead. At least the bed is comfortable in [...]
