On this episode, Inca and her group continues with their money robbing spree. Later, Inca gets identified as the Fifth Pillar and Shinra attempts to get her before the White Clad.Okay, I can already tell that Inca is going to become one of those antagonists due to her crazy evil-ish personality.

Otherworldly images from the Puna

The Puna de Atacama is the high plateau of the Atacama Desert that stretches across northern Chile and Argentina. Last August, during the South American winter, we visited this eerie Mars-like landscape, where volcanoes, sand, and salt mingle. In the middle of the Puna sits one of Argentina’s highest villages, Tolar Grande, with an elevation of 11,500 feet. Surrounding it are some of the tallest peaks in the Andes, many soaring well over 20,000 feet high. We stayed in the village for a few ...

7 Popular Mountain Destinations That Are Being Destroyed By Climate Change

We all know human-induced climate change is happening.   But when most of us think of climate change, we envisage the melting ice caps in the Arctic and Antarctica, or the disappearing Maldives. Unfortunately, our fragile mountain environments are also rapidly being transformed by climate change. Major glacier changes are leading to scarce water resources, significant wildlife impacts, drought, and forest fires. Here are just a few mountain destinations that are being affected by climate change ...

The Sacred Valley of Peru

“The reasons the Incas called this the ‘Sacred Valley’ are all around you. Discover them in each of our explorations.” So read the welcome note left on a desk in our hotel room. It rang true: The mountains and fields and Incan terraces surrounding the hotel amounted to quite an awe-inspiring scene. I’m not sure I was even aware of the Sacred Valley of Peru prior to this trip. I knew about Machu Picchu, and I suppose if you had mentioned the Incan empire, I would have had vague awareness of the ...

La minga on Chilean island

A flying house is not a common sight, especially one that’s gliding over grasslands pulled by 12 galloping oxen. Yet, not a single face in the crowd of denim and cowboy hats suggests that the sight is unexpected. Mysticism and solidarity saturate Chile’s Chiloé Island, and here lies a tradition conjured up from both — a minga. The very word minga embodies the heart of island life. It means “an exchange of help for benefit,” and can be applied to everything from helping your neighbor plow and ...

Though they’re not as popular as hotel gyms, hotel libraries are still becoming a point of pride for many properties around the world. Here are 11 you should, obviously, check out. ...

9 Tips for Your Trip to Machu Picchu

I went to Peru’s Machu Picchu and Sacred Valley with a dear friend of mine to celebrate the big 4-0. To mark this milestone birthday, I had a certain scenario in mind. After an absolutely punishing year that included a health scare, job loss, a move, the aftermath of a nasty breakup and a family tragedy, I imagined myself standing powerfully on top of Machu Picchu, where I’d throw my hands up in the air and shout: “Hey world, look at ME! I am a goddess! A superheroine! A doer of great things!” ...

World's most sustainable restaurants

Farm-to-table dining is no longer a niche concept. Restaurants around the world are sourcing local produce, minimizing waste, and reducing energy use. Part of the drive to sustainability is because of flavor — fresh, local food simply tastes better than the same food out of a package — and part of the recent resurgence of sustainable practices in restaurants is because it’s what the people want. While there are locations where local and sustainable food has always been present, this new crop ...

The best things to do in Ecuador

Ecuador is not a large country. The nation, which sits on South America’s Pacific coast, is about the size of Nevada. But packed into that small land area are distinct regions that offer vastly different experiences for tourists. In a few hours, you can go from island to beach to snow-capped mountain to lush rainforest — thanks to Ecuador’s expansive bus system and reliable puddle jumpers. This geographic diversity, along with bustling cities and rich pre-colonial history, makes Ecuador a gre...

Why You Should Stay for Days in Peru’s Sacred Valley

If you look through major tour company itineraries for Peru, you'll see that most of them don't spend much time in the Sacred Valley between Cusco and Machu Picchu. They rush through the Valle Sagrado to tick off a few sites like Pisac and Ollaytantambo on a bus tour. Or they skip the valley altogether and just ride through on the Hiram Bingham luxury train. This is a big shame and it pains us to see so many travelers rushing through Peru. When you only hit the well-known highlights, you spend...

How the Inca Used Intricately-Knotted Cords, Called Khipu, to Write Their Histories, Send Messages & Keep Records

Those of us who learned to write in a (mostly) phonetic language learned to take it for granted that writing should correspond (roughly) to sound. Then we learned of the pictographs, ideographs, and logograms of the Chinese alphabet, or of Ancient Egyptian or Mayan, or of other non-phonemic orthographies, and we were forced to revise earlier assumptions. Those who pursue the study of symbolic systems even further will eventually come to meet khipu, the Incan system of record-keeping that...

10 Hiking Trails Around the World That Will Blow Your Mind

I have always been a nature person. Cities, for me, seem unnecessarily chaotic and at times, overwhelming. Nature, on the other hand, is simple, straightforward in its beauty and comes at no extra cost. There is nothing better than walking in the peacefulness of the mountains, around the calming sound of rocks and rivers, and having the front seat row to Mother Nature. Whenever I have a chance to disconnect from the world and go on a four-day trek in the mountain, I would do so with no hesitati...
