Sprawling over 20,000 acres, El Yunque National Forest is the only tropical rainforest in the United States. It’s been part of the National Park Service since 1903, but the Taíno tribes left their petroglyphs all over the peaks of the forest long before the Spanish arrived. Today it’s one of the most touristed regions of […]

Vieques is one of Puerto Rico’s barrier islands, known for the former military base and the wild horses that have their run with the place. Most people choose between it and Culebra as a way to get back to nature. You won’t find the crowds of tourists like you do in Old San Juan, but […]
When getting ready for my trip to Puerto Rico, I assumed that the food would be similar to Mexican food. But on our first night in San Juan, the server at Cafe Puerto Rico told us all we needed to know about the food on the islands. It’s based heavily in proteins and starches with […]
The name is synonymous with rum. In fact, every classic rum cocktail was created with Bacardi, including the Cuba Libre and daiquiri. My first taste of it was mixed with Diet Coke in a college dorm room, long before I could appreciate the delicate flavors of a white rum. Since then I’ve come to appreciate […]
Getting around Southeast Asia is never dull, rarely on time and always a gamble. What seems like a straightforward journey can be an epic adventure, so be prepared for just about anything. You’ve got dozens of options at your disposal on how to get around, so why not try a little bit of each? Here […]
I’ve talked about plenty of things I don’t think are worth it in Southeast Asia, namely things that other people think are fun that I’m not overly interested in. The Full Moon Party. Elephant rides. Tubing in Vang Vieng. Selfies with tigers at Tiger Temple. Shooting off guns in Vietnam. Halong Bay party cruises. But […]
If you saw the last few editions of Travel Writing Round Up, welcome back! There are a lot of great opportunities this month, so I hope you will take full advantage of them. A lot are repeats from last month as well, but new posts are denoted with stars. I have checked all the links to […]
Flying on budget airlines can save you plenty of money, but can make you want to rip your hair out from all the extra fees and nonsense that go along with it. In my years of being a budget traveler, I’ve flown Ryanair in Europe, JetStar in Australia and Asia, AirAsia in Asia and Spirit […]
As you walk past the colorful houses lining the cobblestone streets, you’re immediately aware that San Juan is a city brimming with history. The architecture reminds me of my time in Portugal, apart from its iconic tiles. The unincorporated archipelago of Puerto Rico may technically be a territory of the United States since the Spanish-American […]
As if my post on Vietnam’s Street Food wasn’t enough, I’ve made a video called Eating Vietnam about all the delicious things I ate during my month there. If you like what you see, please subscribe on YouTube!
Before deciding to go to Vietnam, I could have told you little to nothing about the man known as Ho Chi Minh. I knew he was once a chef and spent time overseas before returning to his home country and ushering it into the modern and Communist age. But until turning up at the Ho […]
Beng Mealea is one of Siem Reap’s lesser visited temples and was long so for good reason: land mines set up by the Khmer Rouge. Only a few people had visited the temple before its mines were cleared in the last decade and those who did faced a painful death if they took the wrong […]
