Rim Trail, Grand Canyon Village, United States

How my teacher helped me live my life

By Cindy Trillo Location: The Grand Canyon I grew up in Tucson, Arizona, the second-largest population center in the state.

Why Take a Gap Year to Travel the World?

Travel broadens your horizons, opens doors to new experiences and people, and changes you unequivocally, as you realize that you are capable of setting your fears aside and being a citizen of the world. The problem with setting aside travel to the future is that once you start working, it can be challenging to take a ‘real holiday’. But here is why you need to do it!

It sounds ridiculous, but… Continue Reading

48 hours in Kauai

Better known for honeymoons and lazy romantic getaways than nonstop 48-hour solo blitzes, Kauai easily proved itself easily capable of handling the latter. Booked at the last minute when an upcoming weekend freed up, I avoided looking at pictures ahead of time; I wanted all 550 square miles to be a surprise. The crowing of… Continue Reading

Tom Lais Bicycle Tour Logan Pass

Tom’s Bicycle Tour of Africa

Home is where the bicycle is. Editor’s Note: I’ve met few men who love bicycling as much as Tom. That’s actually an understatement.
