Guide to Ethically Volunteering in Asia

Volunteering in the Philippines Even at seven o’clock in the morning the sun was riding high and strong over Tacloban City on the island of Leyte. From inside the colorful Jeepney amongst a jumble of spades, sledgehammers and wheelbarrows, a voice called: “Let’s Go Alan!” and our Filippino driver started the engine. From my perch on the roof I held on tightly as we bumped towards the seashore, where piles of debris stood as evidence...

Funny Travel Lessons

My Initiation Traveling has been like my own personal eccentric Kung Fu master. When I began I expected to be gently washed of my narrow world view, but that is not what the teacher had in mind. Rote repetition, bruises, and often just straight up weirdness was to be my guide. Here are six life changing lessons I learned on the not-so-glorious side of the road: The Original Position A friend of mine who lived in Korea for a year...

10 Things to Know About Fiji

My Insights into Fiji Since Fiji Airways flies from LAX (Los Angeles) on a brand new A330, I thought with more people having an opportunity to visit I would offer some of my insights for travelers from my last trip. 1.

The Experience of Walking Beside Laotian Monks

The Experience of Walking Beside Laotian Monks

One Buddhist morning. The colour of the air is infused with orange and pomegranate. And still, it is before dawn. Nothing can be heard except for the quiet barefoot steps of two dozen monks dressed in deep orange robes. And the morning song ( a strong word for this sound ) of the early birds – the roosters. The field with buffalos, the trees and the Buddhist monks in front of me – they are all silhouettes against the...

Locally Sourced and Loving It in St. Lucia

Locally Sourced and Loving it in St. Lucia First I felt the itch, then the raging burn. I ran like a bat out of hell from the greenhouse, not entirely sure what was making my feet feel like they were on fire. It was my first attack by fire ants and it was horribly unpleasant. Usually, I might grumble and moan all day about the pain, but I gave it only a second before shaking it and moving forward. There was no time to dwell, as I was...

Skipping the Beach on Aruba Vacations

Skipping the Beach in Aruba With a threat of endangered bats bound to fly into my hair, I was not crazy about climbing the steps to the mouth of the cave. But this was the real, natural Aruba I hoped to immerse myself in, so into the hole I went found inside the Arikok National Park. After a jeep drive through cacti field, herds of goats and some hilly, colorful residential areas, I arrived at the Quadirikiri, Fontein and Huliba caves...

London Tenement Blues

The London Tenement Rough Living London-Style I was living, if you could call it that, in various London hostels before I found a room for rent. I was eager for my own space, for drawers and a door. It had been weeks since I could unpack my bag. The room was in a house in the East End, a 45-minute commute to the city center. The neighborhood never made me feel unsafe, exactly, though I grew to recognize it as a bit rundown and...
