Thailand’s Phanom Rung Festival

At the Phanom Rung Historical Park in the province of Buriram in rural Thailand, a 1,000-year-old Khmer temple sits atop an extinct volcano surrounded by rice paddies. In early April, the rising sun shines through all 15 doorways of the hilltop temple, creating a stunning visual effect. Locals gather each year for the annual Phanom Rung Festival to pray, give offerings, socialize, celebrate Thai culture, and observe the solar phenomenon which is said to bring good luck.

Running An Event In A Pandemic – Worse Than Bungy Jumping But It Gets You Thinking About The Future Of Meetings

I've done many things in my life - bungy jumped, tandem skydived, climbed Mount Kinabalu, trekked many trails, ran into armed gunmen in Thailand, rolled down a jeep in Namibia, contended with a scorpion sting in the middle of the night in Bostwana - but I've never ever run an event in the midst of a global pandemic.

12 books by black authors to read

Just when the Black Travel Movement was gaining so much speed, we now all find ourselves confined to our houses.

What to expect visiting Alaska

“You’re driving through Alaska in February?” said my local bartender, looking up from the tap as though I had told her I wanted to wrestle a polar bear. “You know the highway is, like, a huge sheet of ice, right? If you don’t have four-wheel drive, you’re screwed.” As it turns out, she was born and raised in Fairbanks, and I was suddenly terrified of what I had signed up for. Alaska holds an interesting place in the American consciousness. In a country with few real wildernesses left to exp...

18 Easy Steps for Planning Your Next Trip

Updated: 02/24/20 | February 24th, 2020 I remember when I started planning my first trip around the world. I had no idea what I was doing.
