Travel Tip: Always Check Your Visa

I handed my passport to the customs agent at Denpasar Airport in Bali, Indonesia. “30-day visa?” He asked. “That’s the one!” I replied. In my mind, a 30-day visa is equivalent to one month. If you enter on January 10, you should be out by February 10. However, travelers who are much smarter than me will assume that 30 days means 30 total days. So, if you arrive on January 10, you need...Read the whole entry... »          Related Stories Monkey Business: How Not to Get Bit by a PrimateWhat th...

First Timer’s Guide to Skill Focused Travel

You’ve probably never heard of Skill-Focused Travel or SFT. Skill-Focused Travel is essentially about going on a quest. Instead of looking at your trip as a list of experiences to get through, I suggest using your travels as an opportunity for deeply rooted personal growth. The Bucket List Mentality After my trip through Asia, a friend asked to meet with me to discuss a similar trip she was planning. I saw her itinerary and shook my head. She had a mile long list of activities that couldn’t ev...

Dogs welcome at White Sands park

Stepping out of your vehicle onto fine gypsum crystals is the closest thing to walking on the moon that most of us will ever experience. At White Sands National Monument, dunes of white sand ripple across a vast expanse of open desert, ceasing only at the feet of the towering Sierra Blanca mountains. This 224-square-mile protected area of rolling gypsum dunes in southern New Mexico is the truest embodiment of the state’s catchphrase as the “Land of Enchantment.” But any dog owner knows that p...

5 Ways Indie Travel Has Changed — And Stayed The Same — Since 1999

Twenty years ago, when I set off on my first multi-month vagabonding trip around Asia, I noticed that a lot of the backpackers I met – cool indie travelers from places like Denmark and Tasmania and Oregon – were fixated with the notion of what travel must have been like in the 1970s. Indeed, as enjoyable as Thailand and India and Japan were in 1999, there was this sense that we had missed out on an earlier, purer era of travel some two decades before – a time before the advent of dial-up Interne...

'Overtourism': Surges in unsustainable tourism are destroying islands in the Pacific

The tourism industry is booming throughout the world but nowhere more noticeably than on the small tropical islands of Southeast Asia. Millions of tourists flock to these remote islands every day to enjoy the beaches and snorkel among the coral reef, but the traffic and waste they produce has forced some ecosystems to reach their breaking point. “Overtourism” is the new term for the overpopulation of tourists who wreak havoc on fragile ecosystems. Many Asian governments have had to close entire...

Life Without Toys – Minimalist Family Travel

Is our travel life truly toy free? Nope. We’re not purists. But we are traveling with 99.9% fewer toys than we had at home, and our choice of toys has changed significantly. So, we’ve got stuff. It’s just different stuff than you might expect. At first, our paring down of child paraphernalia was an act of necessity – we simply could not carry a bundle of toys around the globe. That meant parting with many beloved staples- the ukulele that Bird got for his second birthday, Spider Monkey’s “fast” ...

Visit the Nusa Islands off Bali

The beaches, surf, and culture of Bali have been attracting sun-worshippers for nearly a century. Yet most visitors to this Indonesian island still don’t venture further than the mainland, despite it being just a short boat ride from a number of other visit-worthy isles. Bali saw more than six million tourists in 2018. But the far less crowded islands of Nusa Penida, Nusa Lembongan, and Nusa Ceningan — just off of Bali’s east coast — are reminiscent of the serene Bali of decades ago. These is...

Biden Unbound, on Foreign Policy

I’ve been publishing a series of emails about Joe Biden and his candidacy. Here I want to share something different. It’s an window into his candidacy and potential presidency. Back in 2004 I was writing an article for The Atlantic about John Kerry’s foreign policy. I did a range of interviews for that piece and one of them was with then-Senator Biden, in his office one evening up on Capitol Hill. It was loose and unstructured. When you talk with Biden he’s thinking out loud, discussing ideas, n...

Redefining Road Travel, Family Style

I had no idea that traveling the world with my small children would be as challenging as it is. My parents, who have been with us for the last few weeks of travel, are joking that they are going to make T-shirts that say “We survived a year of travel with Bird and Spider Monkey.” Quite frankly, I think I’ve already earned more than a t-shirt at this point. If you have read my other posts, you will not be surprised to hear that this is way harder than I thought it would be. Maybe that’s because ...
