Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Not for the faint at heart.

Edinburgh, Scotland. August. Fringe Festival. Amazing. This is a little guide/taste of what fringe is like in Edinburgh. It's fun, silly, serious, insane, intense and pure delight. It's when art takes over an already artistic city and puts it into overdrive. https://youtu.be/7DYZilI4HA4 There is performance happening in every single corner of this town, from large...

Unsilent Night: NYC most weird & wonderful holiday tradition.

Unsilent Night is by far my favorite (and surrealist) holiday activity. Phil Kline composed a song in 1992, and each year he comes out to Washington Square, with a bunch of boom boxes and cassettes to meet up with hundreds of people. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y-SCI-9HUtY&feature=youtu.be You can download the song or grab a cassette (yes, cassette) and...

Nuku Hiva – Pig roasts, mythical cultures, and rich history in the Marquesas.

Nuku Hiva has always been the most magical and mythical of the Polynesian Marquesas islands, attracting Herman Melville and Robert Louis Stevenson to its idyllic shores over a hundred years ago. Today you can still find much of the magic tucked away in its dramatic coastline, or through its misty plateau called To’ovi’i, which is... Continue Reading →

Fatu Hiva: The best of the Marquesas.

Today aboard the Aranui we visit perhaps my favorite of the Marquesas Island chain, Fatu Hiva, which has some of the most amazing culture, local arts, beautiful bays, and amazing hiking that Polynesia has to offer. https://youtu.be/o1Nx2JuuFIM From Tahiti Island Travel: At about 75 kilometers from Hiva Oa, Fatu Hiva is the southernmost island in...

Eating a donkey meat sandwich in Beijing, China.

A donkey Sandwich in Beijing China sounds disgusting, but actually this common asian treat is rather delicious. Soft, tender, and super flavorful, I equate it to a "Peaking Pastrami" if you will. Here, I risk, life, limb and indigestion to try this new delight. https://youtu.be/fBmb_Au2vN4 This is a special episode of TravelClast that is honoring... Continue Reading →
