How to Introduce a Loved One to Adventure Travel

“Are you crazy?” my friend exclaimed. “He’ll never want to travel again!” I simply smiled. We were catching up and discussing my upcoming travel plans, which involved a multi-day jungle trek with my city-slicker brother in tow.

I’m a well-seasoned travel vet, with more than 35 countries on my passport. On the contrary, my younger brother had never left the country. Somehow, I had managed to convince him to come trekking and surfing in Colombia with me. We decided on the destination together. He wanted to visit some place tropical, but one that didn’t have a resort vibe. I can’t resist the temptation of a good hike. After a month or two of back and forth, we settled on Colombia.

10 Amazing (and Attainable) Thru-Hikes Across the Country

Weekend backpacking trips are one of the greatest gifts of the summer. You can get so much in just two to three days: a breathtaking vista, a serene mountain lake, a secluded old-growth forest. The only problem is that all too soon you’re back at the trailhead, preparing for the long drive home and wondering how you’ll get through five more days before your next big adventure.

Biking Los Angeles

West Coast

I recently made the jump from the east coast to the west, and have just settled in the beach city of Santa Monica, where I will be doing a bit more of the same: a little bar-tending, a little sailing, pursuing that dream of dreams, now in the City of Stars.

One thing that I’d heard over and over again from experienced Los Angelenos before I moved is: “You’ll need a car,” “You have to have a car,” “You definitely should get a car” …welp, I have been here for over a month now, and I have some news to share.

You don’t really need a car in Los Angeles.

The Adirondacks to the Andes

January 2017 was a month of adventure.

 

I started the New Year snowboarding with friends at Whiteface Mountain in Lake Placid, NY. Temperatures hovered around 0 degrees Fahrenheit at the summit of the mountain.  Visibility was poor at times but it was still some amazing riding. After 4 days in the Adirondacks, I made my way down to Eastern PA to meet my girlfriend and fly out of Philly to volunteer in Ecuador.  Our nine hour layover in Atlanta gave us enough time to leave the airport and explore what the city had to offer.
