(Season Three) New York City may be the most overwhelming city on Earth, but it's also quite arguably a much friendlier place since the tragic event of 9/11 over eighteen years ago. Walking around Manhattan, you're almost certain to see 'that g
(Season Three) Hong Kong is a true feast for the senses. Uniquely blending centuries of Asian culture with more recent British influence, the adventure starts as soon as you land at the airport. Brave drunk taxi rides, soaring cable car rides a
(Season Three) Emily's mom is originally from Northern Mexico, so it was only a matter of time before we went to visit la familia. The problems all started when our vehicle of choice for this road trip was a bright yellow Hummer with Texas tags
(Season Three) It's no secret that Kenya is one of our favorite countries. Every moment spent there is high adventure, from the laughing ibises in the morning to the afternoon game drives on the Maasai Mara and the almost surreal experience of
(Season Three) Exotic and exciting in the minds of most adventure travelers, Sri Lanka's civil war is becoming more of a distant memory. That means all of the amazing, sights, sounds and tastes of this Indian Ocean island-nation are safer than
(Season Two) The Republic of Georgia is one of the most underrated destinations on Earth. This former Soviet Socialist Republic has most recently made headlines for political strife, but has been famous for its wine for 8000 years. Indeed, it's
(Season Two) If you've never been to any of the countries in the Arab world, Jordan is a great place to start. The people are friendly, the food is fantastic, the scenery is unforgettable and--of course--you have access to one of the world's g
(Season Two) On a plane from Colombia full of over 170 travelers, only three of us were from the United States. Even nowadays most tourists can't shake the image of the fierce Medellin Cartel, and continue to stay away in droves. But hey, that
(Season Two) A state of emergency has been declared in Ethiopia shortly before this episode was published, so our thoughts and prayers are with the warm, wonderful people of this beautiful country. Indeed, much of Ethiopia is nothing like the
(Season Two) It may look like the surface of another planet, but it's really part of central Turkey. It's Cappadocia, of course...the weird but wonderful land of 'fairy chimneys', cave hotels and a mid-air traffic jam of hot air balloons almos
(Season Two) We kick off the brand new second season with a weird and wild visit to North Korea. Going there is like being transported to a different planet, starting with airport check-in. It's like a fully unique version of 'urban adventure t
(Season One) They should sell t-shirts in Tirane that say 'Keep Albania Weird'. But then again, it's weird that they don't. Maybe they don't want to stay weird? But for now, they can't help it...what with the 'ancient pyramid ruins' from 198
(Season One) Canyonlands is the Rodney Dangerfield of the National Park system, isn't it? I mean, this place would be incredibly famous if not for the Grand Canyon. And yet, unique and hair-raising adventures abound...from the precarious walk
(Season One) Small time rebels such that we are, we ignored the crappy (but hilarious) advice from the rental car guy, stuffed gas cans into the back of his Jeep Liberty and drove the infamous Dalton Highway to the Arctic Circle. In addition to
(Season One) Until about ten years ago people used to say, 'Angkor what?' But nowadays Siem Reap, Cambodia is near the top of every adventure traveler's 'must see' list. That's for good reason. People go for the renowned jungle temples, floatin
(Season One) Belarus is best known for being in the Opening Ceremonies parade at the Olympics. Actually, that's probably not true. Nevertheless, it's the most Soviet country left in Eastern Europe and that alone makes it incredibly interesting
(Season One) Switch on the heated floors and reach for new Hites, because it's this episode that truly exposes what travel dorks we really are. First, we have no idea how to pronounce anything in Korea. Then, we have no idea how to eat anything
(Season One) Punjab state in India is home to Sikhs and theatrical border showdowns, yet it's visited by relatively few Westerners...especially with infants. While others hurry off to Rajasthan, Mumbai or Agra, we were sure to head northwest t
(Season One) Iconic surf spots like Burleigh Heads and Snapper Rocks make the Gold Coast a surfer's paradise, even if the ironically named Surfer's Paradise isn't. What is that supposed to mean? Listen to this episode and it'll all be crystal
(Season One) While everyone else jets off to Costa Rica, make a run for the border just north to Nicaragua. You'll save about two-thirds of your hard-earned Cordobas if you do, all the while enjoying a rich natural experience and authentic Spa
(Season One) Big lizards on the sidewalk, prickly pear jewelry, moonwalking, boobie watching and more...all part of the thrill of visiting one of the most exotic archepelagos on Earth. Think it's going to break the bank to go? Not necessarily
(Season One) Why is it that flights to the craziest countries tend to land at the craziest times? Sure enough, we hit Cairo at about 2:30 am, only to encounter pure confusion punctuated by beat up old Peugeots and two guys on a motorcycle with
(Season One) The airport is huge and modern, and like so much else in Beijing it was pretty much built for the 2008 Olympics. Eight years later they're still taking your temperature when you enter the country. The Forbidden City has long sinc
