  • And This Little Tourist Swam With Piranhas | Amazon, Peru

    By Emese Simm on November 21, 2014
    Following the outline of the Madre de Dios river on the far outskirts of Puerto Maldonado, our tour group trekked through eight miles of a jungle so thick it was right out of “Planet of the Apes.” Spider monkeys and other primates in Caesar’s family swung along the Rio, mocking us non-natives below. Overgrown brush and dangling vines framed the […]

  • Ninja Pussy Blow-Dart | Bangkok, Thailand

    By S. Bedford on October 8, 2014
    What Vegas is to forty-five-year-old businessmen with cul-de-sac hairlines and cocaine-ravaged septums Bangkok is to twenty-five-year-old backpackers with sun-kissed skin and alcohol-soaked livers (and cocaine-ravaged septums if they’ve traveled through Latin America). The same rules apply: what happens in Bangkok, stays in Bangkok… unless you were threatened by a blow-dart-wielding vagina, in which case you write an article about it. […]

  • Police Cars are Cheaper Than Taxis: How to Seduce a Panamanian Cop | Bocas del Toro, Panama

    By S. Bedford on July 24, 2014
    Her name was Zarra, which should’ve been my first clue. If she’d been a Millicent, our evening would have proceeded differently. Millicents don’t seduce Panamanian policía for a ride to a nightclub, and then perform cunnilingus six paces from the dance floor—at least, none of the Millicents I’ve ever met do. My (platonic) friend Paul and I arrived in Bocas […]

  • I got scammed in Budapest | Hungary

    By Josh Ferry Woodard on April 8, 2014
    I felt my cheeks burn red as I started to panic…. I remembered reading about a scam a few years ago before I visited Riga… This couldn’t be happening to me… I wasn’t looking for that kind of thing. *** Let’s get one thing straight.

  • All in a Day’s Work for a Holiday Rep: A Barricade in Desenzano

    By Alessia George on June 26, 2013
    I rounded the corner and stopped, astonished at the sight in front of me.  Fluttering flags and hand-written placards blocked the street ahead.  I wondered if I had stumbled upon a very local festival, Italians love their festivals, but already I suspected something more sinister.  It had all the hallmarks of a protest. I gathered up my belongings and carried […]

  • Bad Guys and Borders (Dummy Wallets & Dumb Ideas), Canada

    By Michael Howard on October 27, 2012
    I’ve traveled extensively, and have learned that the world can be a hostile place for U.S. citizens abroad. Researching “next level” security options, I found online advice recommending “dummy wallets” with just enough cash to satisfy robbers, and even “novelty” or “fantasy” passports. The U.S. State Department offers a wealth of travel tips – including their website, Travel.state.gov – but […]
