The $10 million award also includes Apple employing its...

Explore the Maya world with the British Museum

At first glance, the British Museum and Google may not seem like natural partners. One is a 266-year-old institution venerated as the first national public museum in the world. The other is a 21-year-old former startup and now the world’s largest digital company. But if you take a closer look, you’ll see some strong ties. The British Museum was created to host the knowledge of the world in objects and to unlock their stories. Google’s mission is to organize the world’s information and make it un...

Here's I want to go back to Honduras

Honduras is under the radar for a lot of people, but I had the chance to go and I can say this for certain: it’s excellent. It has mountains, dense rainforests, beaches and scuba diving, diverse ecology, Mayan ruins, a culture all its own, and much more. I understand why it made a bunch of must-visit lists for 2017. I’d return in a heartbeat — here’s why. Editor’s note: This trip was sponsored by Pica Bonito Eco Lodge. 1 It's incredibly lush I me...

Copan strategy: the wild plan to revamp the ‘coolest building in Latin America’

Long Term Travel As Education

Our family of six ended up spending seven years traveling full-time travel, and despite what many may think, we aren’t the only ones who live and raise kids this way.  We know dozens of other families out there in the world doing fabulous things. We didn't live this way by default, because our first lifestyle choice didn’t work out. We walked the world as a family on purpose, specifically for the education of our young people. When we were on the road, it drove me a bit crazy to be asked, repea...

5 Reasons Travel Should Be Part of Education

You might have noticed that I’m a strong supporter of travel and education. The two are not mutually exclusive in my book. In fact, I would argue that travel is a richer experience for the depth that a proper education adds to a person’s ability to think, reason, and question regarding his experiences in the world. I would also argue that no education is complete without a stint outside of one’s own culture. "What is life but a cradle to grave education and re-education?" Does this mean that you...

Central America Tops and Flops

This time last year, I was flying back to America after four months spent in one of my favorite pockets of planet earth: Central America. Over the course of five different trips, I’ve now been lucky enough to visit each of the seven countries making up this sub-continent — some of them multiple times! A rough calculation reveals I’ve dedicated over six months to the region. This part of the world captivates me and should I ever decide I need a change of pace from calling Thailand my home base, y...

Combine Mexico and Central America With Tropic Air

You probably know you can get to Belize on a lot of airlines from the United States, but did you know that Tropic Air can get you there from seven locations in Mexico and Central America? This means it's probably easier than you think to combine a trip to Belize with one or two other countries on the same trip. For Mexico, there are Tropic Air connections between Belize City and two places in the Yucatan Peninsula: Cancun and Merida. This is really significant for two reasons. First of all, i...

Not in Buffalo: I think we've covered the Mayans!

After our great experience last year with my friend in a different part of Guatemala, we decided to go to Antigua to explore more Mayan culture and, of course, some Spanish colonial history.  After loads of church ruins and museums, we decided that we better hit some major Mayan ruins in case we are unable to come back to Guatemala.  Most people think of Tikal.  We thought about going there, but Copan is quite a significant site and closer to Antigua, not to mention being able to visit Honduras....

5 Reasons to Visit Honduras: The Murder Capital of the World

The Great Escape: Month 48 Roundup

What a crazy month this one was. I transitioned from my Central American spring into my North American summer by tropical island hopping north-bound, from Roatan to Grand Cayman to Bermuda. That was the first half of the month. Then, after a quick spin around Upstate New York, I was island bound again, this time of the quaint New England variety: Martha’s Vineyard. I was surrounded by friends and family at every turn. As much as I love my big solo backpacking trips, it was nice to fall back in t...
