Photoset: 12 hour in Doha, Qatar

he flight options from Philadelphia to Bangkok are not ideal. For the first time in years I broke from my Delta/Skyteam fan-boy tendencies and grabbed a flight on Qatar Airlines. I did this for a couple reasons:   There happened to be a one stop flight option available. Qatar Air is considered one of the…

Communism & Cocktails – A Cuba Recap

Visit any other Caribbean island or Central American beach town, and you could easily mistake one for another. But in Cuba, you always know you are in Cuba. The contrasting sights, smells and sounds are clearly Cuban and generally in your face. If you go: (and you should) Stay: Skip the Hotel and opt for a Casa…

Norway Part 3: The Trolltunga Hike, a Postholing Adventure.

indlessly scrolling through my Instagram feed, I came across an image that stopped me in my tracks.

Hector State of Mind

Steep cliffs and deep water,  vineyards and waterfalls. Hector. Filled with Sailboats and ski boats, pontoons and party barges. Hector. Where Chris Craft and Kubotas are more sought after than Mercedes and McMansions. More kegerators than cable boxes. Hector. Where road noise comes from the road course. Where tractors and tourists cause the traffic jams….

Certified Marineros

‘ve been sailing for a number of years. And by sailing, I mean drinking on a boat that happens to have sails. My buddy Liam and I have that was passed down to us by our fathers (primarily because neither of them wanted it in their yard). While over the years we’ve gotten better, we…

Survival In The World’s Most Dangerous Nation

“How about Honduras?” she said as we were researching trip destinations… I figured, why not? I’d never been, plus on the surface it seems a lot like the rest of central america. Turns out, the answer to the “why not?” was a few reasons deep: Hon…
