What is curry and the differences

Curry isn’t actually a spice. Granted, in America, we’re used to strolling up to the spice aisle and picking between a few different jars of curry powder. Or, for the more adventurous, going to the local farmers market and picking between two dozen different curry “blends.” Yet curry on its own isn’t an actual spice but rather a mix of spices. And if you associate curry with India, well, curry powder doesn’t exist either. “Back home, we don’t have anything called curry powder; that doesn’t ex...

AK Monthly Recap — April 2019

I used to freak out whenever I spent a month without leaving the confines of New York City. It brings to mind that episode of Sex and the City when Miranda briefly dates the guy who hasn’t left Manhattan in a decade. These days, it happens about once a year, but I don’t mind anymore. It’s nice to have that respite from trips and concentrate on the things that mean most to me — spending time with friends and family, working out, and enjoying my routines. And of all months to spend ensconced in N...

‘It looked like a gunshot wound’: how a flesh-eating parasite felled a British adventurer

The largely unexplored Essequibo river snakes through Guyana’s vast rainforest for more than 1,000km – and after kayaking its length, Pip Stewart felt fitter than ever.  The 34-year-old was part of the first team to paddle the entirety of South America’s third longest river, from the source in the Acarai mountains, through untouched jungle to the river mouth at the Atlantic Ocean. But three months after completing her “magical” journey, Stewart found herself hooked up to an IV in a hospital room...

Prince Harry reveals hidden passion for photography as he shares Instagram pictures of his travels

How Scotland erased Guyana from its past

The portrayal of Scots as abolitionists and liberal champions has hidden a long history of profiting from slavery in the Caribbean.The mangrove-fringed coast of Guyana, at the north-eastern tip of South America, does not immediately bring to mind the Highlands of Scotland, in the northernmost part of Great Britain. Guyana’s mudflats and silty brown coastal water have little in common with the lush green mountains and glens of the Highlands. If these landscapes share anything, it is their remoten...

U.S. to face old foe Trinidad & Tobago in CONCACAF Gold Cup

LOS ANGELES — The last time the U.S. men’s national soccer team played a competitive match, Trinidad & Tobago stunned the Americans on an October night in the West Indies. The 2-1 defeat on Oct. 10, 2017, ensured that for the first time in 24 years the U.S. would not qualify for the FIFA World Cup, prompting head coach Bruce Arena to resign ahead of a 14-month search to find his replacement. Another meaningful match between the U.S. and the island nation will be on the docket in June after the 1...

What’s It Really Like to Travel Guyana?

When I knew I was traveling to Guyana, I had no idea what to expect. Even for the girl who grew up constantly reading about other countries, I knew very little about Guyana and never really had a desire to visit. Then in November, I received an opportunity to visit Guyana on one of the Guyana Tourism Authority’s very first press trips. At the time, I was in Kenya on another press trip. One of the writers with me was Guyanese-American, and I excitedly told her I got invited to her home country. ...

AK Monthly Recap: March 2019

March brought me to Guyana. That, far and away, was what dominated the month — my weeklong trip to the little-visited country in South America. It was an unbelievable trip and I can’t wait to start writing about it for you. Honestly, this month was so dominated by work that I didn’t get up to much else. I was working like crazy to write all kinds of solo female travel guides, and I still have quite a few. But even though I was crazy busy this month, I still got a TON of books in. Behold: March ...

How I Became a Successful Travel Blogger — My Smartest Decisions

How did I become a successful travel blogger? It sure wasn’t intentional from the start! Back when I started Adventurous Kate in 2010, I had no idea it was even possible to make money with a blog. Recently I read the book Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell, which explains how certain individuals became successful. People tend to believe that genius leads to success — for example, that Bill Gates became successful because he was so smart. But that’s not all of it. Intelligence is a huge factor. So is ...

Where to celebrate Holi

Many of us know the Holi festival as that event where you gather in huge crowds to throw powdered dye at each other, but it’s much more than that. Holi or Spring Festival is an important Hindu festival that marks the arrival of spring, and is celebrated all over the world. The festival’s roots lie in one Hindu legend that features the demon king Hiranyakashyap, who believed he was superior to all the gods. His son, Prahlad, rebelled and worshiped the god Vishnu, so Hiranyakashyap conspired to...

Out-of-State Marriage: If I Marry Out of the U.S. a, is It Valid Here in the USA

My question involves marriage law for the state of: Arizona. I'm planning on marrying a girl in another country (Guyana) and going to live over there. (This is a real marriage, and we both love each other). We have decided we will stay over there. Given we ever split up, will my marriage be valid in the US?

AK Monthly Recap: February 2019

What’s the best thing that could have happened this month? I became an auntie again! My beautiful friend welcomed an adorable baby boy to the world and that, more than anything, made this month special. I’ve been an auntie for ten months now and it is one of my favorite roles I’ve ever had.

Guyana government to challenge no-confidence vote in court

The Dec. 21 vote triggered new elections within 90 days, after one lawmaker from Granger's APNU-AFC coalition sided with the opposition, which accuses the government of mismanaging the country's oil resources by granting Exxon Mobil overly generous contract terms. The government plans to argue that the motion needed 34 votes to pass, rather than the 33 it received, and that the lawmaker who cast the deciding vote was ineligible to be a member of parliament because he also holds Canadian citizen...
