The most remote train journeys

Train travel has a fresh spotlight on the tourism stage thanks to movements in slow and sustainable travel. One of our greenest choices, trains make us nomads back on the ground level. It’s a strange, meditative speed with ample time to process and daydream. Trains also allow us to roam where roads don’t go and gaze on things planes don’t see. These epic train adventures epitomize this spirit, giving us the best of both journey and destination. 1. Trans-Siberian Railway — Russia, Mongolia, a...

"... where tourists seated at white tablecloths drink sparkling wines and eat canapés as the setting sun turns Uluru a vivid red. Those tourists point to other dualities, too. While Uluru is so sacred to the Anangu that there are certain parts that they do not want photographed or even touched, they welcome the visitors who tool around its base on camels or Segways, or take art lessons in its shadow. Then there is the challenge that comes with making the case that the rock is sacred without bein...

Hikers flock to Uluru before closure

Uluru, the popular sandstone rock in northern Australia, is closing to hikers this month due to the wishes of its indigenous owners. Before that happens, however, thousands of tourists are flocking to the site to hike the rock before it closes on October 26. In November 2017, the management board of the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park voted to ban tourists from climbing Uluru, and since then people have been showing up in record numbers. This really is nuts. The #Uluru climb two days ago. I...

6 Things You Should Consider Before Climbing Uluru

Because Uluru is the world’s largest rock, it’s human nature to see it as a physical challenge. Something to conquer. But just because you’re allowed to climb Uluru, does that mean you should?

Ten Reasons to Visit Australia

Australia is one of the most remote countries in the world and, ironically, one of the most popular places to visit, especially among backpackers and budget travelers. Because of its distance from the US, not many Americans tend to visit Australia.

More Favorite Travel Experiences in Australia

Travel is a funny thing. Sometimes we connect with foreign lands so profoundly that we ache for them even years later. I’ve been fortunate enough to spend quite a bit of time in Australia, at least comparatively, and have traveled to nearly every state and territory, gradually learning what makes this massive country tick. Along the way I’ve found many a kindred spirit and have deeply fallen in love with the Land Down Under. It’s a strange and quirky place, which is maybe why I love it so much,...
