Padre Burgos Pier

March 1, 2010

From the surface, the Padre Burgos pier doesn’t look like much: a cement roadway jutting out into the bay only a few feet above the water at high tide supported by cement pillars. But underneath, especially at night, there is an ecosystem that we had the pleasure of exploring. Entering the water at night was […]

What brought us to Padre Burgos in the first place was the promise of whale sharks in Sogod Bay this time of year. From February through April whale sharks follow their food — plankton — into the warm waters of the bay and the dive shops around here make a killing charging upwards of $70 […]

Freediving

February 12, 2010

Freediving: the art of diving on a single breath. Sounds very simple and in principle it is, but good freediving requires strong discipline, physiology, and training. After a little research I began to understand what freediving really is and became fascinated. The beauty of the sport is the simplicity and naturalness. With just a mask […]

Swimming with Sharks

January 13, 2010

In the ’90s, the little island of Koh Tao in the Gulf of Thailand, started attracting backpackers for its beautiful and affordable diving.

A Climber’s Paradise

January 6, 2010

Railay, Thailand: Not quite an island, but an isolated isthmus accessible only by boat due to impenetrable rock formations. The area is famous for its climbing. In addition to over 700 routes and a laid-back climbing-focused hippie culture, it seems that you can’t go very far on the island without encountering a pathway involving at […]

A Jungle Night

December 8, 2009

I want to share a very vivid recent experience I had in Bokeo Nature Reserve, in Laos. It was the last chilly night in Bokeo, we were all nestled in our jackets were drinking hot chocolate in our wooden tree house, 40 meters off the jungle floor. As the sun sank behind the distant mountains, […]

Plunge into the cold water and repeat.

November 28, 2009

Ever drifted down a river only 20 feet before you had two shots and a mixed drink, lost your sunglasses, and swung on a 30 ft trapeze swing into the river? It caught us by surprise too. The 6km drift down the Nam Song River can easily become a drunken blur after visiting a few […]

Elephant Festival, Surin

The first day of the Elephant Round Up festivities in the town of Surin was brilliant. The main event was the Elephant Breakfast. Hundreds of meters down a long curved road, were tables full of pineapples, cucumbers, tomatoes, sugarcane, and bananas for the 280 elephants to feast on. While we waited for the elephants to […]

Life in the Mekong Delta

November 3, 2009

The Mekong Delta is the area in the Southwest of Vietnam where the mighty Mekong River fans out and flows into the sea. Through a tour company that prides itself on off the beaten track experiences, we were able to spend a night in a homestay in the heart of the area, in Vinh Long […]

Two-day Motorbike Trip

October 13, 2009

What’s the best way to see Vietnam? To really see and experience Vietnam? You hop on a motorbike and make your way through the country. Now, we would be doing more of this if renting a bike for more than a day weren’t so outrageously expensive. But luckily we met Quy and Ty, two Hue […]
