2015 – A Retrospective

2015 has been a great year.  Some people get bummed on New Years.  The freak out by the inexorable passage of time, feeling older. I do not. For me, the 31st of December is like a viewpoint that suddenly emerges from the covered canopy of a mountain trail.  It is a chance to pause, catch one’s breath, … Continue reading 2015 – A Retrospective

Marko’s #OneDayOffline | New York

I used to be a neo-luddite. In high school, I mocked my father’s dependence on his “crack-berry.” In college, I stood aside while my friends rushed for smart phones. After school I remained proudly analog while teaching English in Spain, a country that still valued life offline – communal lunches with friends, leisurely afternoons paseos, and languid hours in … Continue reading Marko’s #OneDayOffline | New York

Rolling with the Blackfoot

There is a place in the Blackfoot lands of Alberta called Writing-on-Stone, where the stories of their ancestors are carved into the sandstone walls along the banks of the Milk River. For a tribe whose lands stretched across the great plains of North America, Writing-on-Stone is as sacred as Mecca or Jerusalem, a place where … Continue reading Rolling with the Blackfoot

Alberta’s Badlands

I don’t know who came up with the name Badlands, but I like it. To me, the name conjured images of a sparse and beautiful land where outlaws hide from the law, a place best explored by horseback with a bottle of whiskey in hand. It wasn’t quite like that, but neither was I too … Continue reading Alberta’s Badlands

Berlin – City of Freedom

It’s nearly four PM on a hazy Sunday afternoon as Alex and I walk past one of the top clubs in Berlin. From the outside, it doesn’t look like much – a dilapidated factory, one of many former industrial buildings that birthed Berlin’s underground rave scene in the early 90s. The party was still going … Continue reading Berlin – City of Freedom

Pilsen, Czech Republic: Birthplace of Good Beer

“That doesn’t look like beer,” I think, peeking into the massive open-topped wooden barrels fermenting the latest batch of Pilsner Urquell. The barrels are about two meters high, hold 40 hectoliters of beer, and are covered by a crust of hardened brown bubbles. “It looks like crème brûlée or a burnt cheese.” I’m from San Diego, … Continue reading Pilsen, Czech Republic: Birthplace of Good Beer

Making Travel TV on the Internet

If you’d stopped me on the day I graduated university and asked me what I’d be doing in five years, I never would have predicted that I’d run a YouTube travel show with my brother – not to mention one that was popular in Finland. But a lot has changed since 2008. When I was an … Continue reading Making Travel TV on the Internet

New Year’s 2015 – Camping in Ensenada, Baja California

Alex and I are blessed to live so close to Mexico. With the border only twenty minutes from our door, adventures abroad are possible every weekend. But for too many years we’ve taken Mexico’s proximity for granted.  In 2015 we intend to spend more time exploring our neighbor to the south – Baja California, Mexico. As … Continue reading New Year’s 2015 – Camping in Ensenada, Baja California
