The Namib: A Journey Through the World’s Oldest Desert Experiencing the Flora, Fauna and Getting Lost in the Namib Desert My time in the Namib left me with an enduring fear of dehydration. Friends complain that I bring too much water on outings, that it’s not necessary to bring a bottle to walk a couple [...]

Cyber Vagabonding: Travel in the Information Age

Couchsurfing: A New Way to Travel
Print Friendly

Hospitality Services: A New Way to Travel Couchsurfing can mean a wide range of accommodations, from mansions and penthouses to tree houses, partially furnished caves, vans, school buses, or vans welded onto the tops of school buses, like this one at an anarchist collective in Northern California. There is a new kind of tourist out [...]

Seville, Spain in All Its Glory: Contrary to Itself and Alive with Obsession

Cathedral

Seville, Spain: Travel The city of Seville is the encore and after-party of Spain. People will trudge through congested Madrid, where flickers of flamenco and traces of tradition quell a normal tourist. It builds the suspense though, it’s the pre-game. The next wave is Barcelona–far quicker and more clever, but still so big and intimidating [...]

In stark contrast to the quiet village life of Eastern Uganda is the capital city, Kampala. My Ugandan cousins, frustrated by the constant questioning and curiosity of their North American and European family members during a reunion, coined a term to explain how bizarre the city can seem to westerners: ‘T.I.U.’ Short for, “This is [...]

Last spring, as the final days before receiving my bachelor’s degree in English ticked themselves away, I was faced with the question university students often procrastinate on addressing: now what? Everyone was asking it; mom, dad, friends in more “practical” majors who thought they had it figured out. Even the professor had no answer. You [...]

Oh, London. London, England, is full of dynamite people and things to see and beverages to drink and the queen and…well alright, who doesn’t want to go to London. But there’s something just as good about a three hour drive west of the city. It’s a whole other country that’s lush, friendly and inexplicably exciting [...]

Dublin Does Winter: A Survival Guide

Parnell Street, Dublin
Print Friendly

The fairy light garlands are swooped over all the major shopping areas, every vendor on Henry Street has this year’s ticket items (Justin Bieber posters and giant lighters, though the two are apparently unrelated), and it’s now socially acceptable to drink before noon, so long as your particular poison is garnished with a cinnamon stick.

The Other Side of Northern Ireland: A Traveler’s Advice on What to Do in Belfast

Belfast, Northern Ireland
Print Friendly

Belfast is a city that doesn’t get nearly enough loving. Despite the constant barrage of pamphlets about ‘rediscovering roots’, or the horribly cheesy radio advertisements about quaint Irish villages and the unbelievable hospitality of their inhabitants, Northern Ireland is rather poorly represented. Don’t get me wrong. I spend most of my year in Dublin, but [...]
