One summer, I went to Europe for 12 days. I had been hitting up the gym for months, eating super healthy and was generally feeling really good about myself. But then I got to Budapest and it was like I had amnesia, I had forgotten how to eat healthily. There was no sprouted bread or sweet potatoes to make up for my carb cravings. Breakfast at the hotels...

Two weeks ago, I was walking by a local pizzeria and the owner came out to chat (my kid is a lady magnet). Next thing you know, we were talking about our travels in Costa Rica. "C'est le Paradis!" she kept repeating. "It's virgin, it's not polluted, it's quiet, it's absolutely beautiful and I can't wait to go back." The feeling is mutual. When I first...

I didn't go on an eco-tourism trip to Costa Rica with the hopes of getting out of my comfort zone. What I wanted to get out of was the nine to five work routine. I wanted to do something meaningful. And of course, I wanted to bathe in waterfalls and hike in rainforests, meet new people and practice Spanish. But we don't always get what we want, and...

I've made so many mistakes while traveling. It's embarrassing. My lowest low was without a doubt in Nicaragua, back in my early traveling days. I forgot to book a cab to take me to the bus station, it was 2 am, and I had no phone and no ride. Stranded and desperate, I knocked on a parked car's door, pleading with the driver to take me to the bus station,...

Living in a country that gets travelers from all over the world, I think about how a hundred years ago, simply getting to another city was a real mission. And here we are now, sailing over continents overnight, falling asleep on one side of the world and waking up on the other. The ease with which we can experience new cultures and different landscapes...
