A very funny tale about how I almost got myself missing by the Russians aboard a spy ship in the Arctic Ocean.
One of the greatest trips of my lifetime was exploring the NorthWest Passage aboard a Russian research vessel with One Ocean Expeditions. I was there on assignment for Get Lost Magazine, and had never been that far North before, well above the Arctic Circle. We left from Greenland, and traveled across Baffin Bay, visited abandoned...

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...

The last trip to Edinburgh yielded simply the best place to drink Scotch whisky in all of Scotland, The Scotch Malt Whisky Societyin Leith, Edinburgh. This place is everything you want it to be, secretive enough not to be overrun by uncouth tourists, accessible enough to feel at home not knowing as much as you... Continue Reading →

Unsilent Night is by far my favorite (and surrealist) holiday activity.

Just a quick peek into my favorite place to stay in the city of Papeete, Tahiti, and this great little jeep tour that explored the inner beauty of the island, with waterfalls, tall mountain peaks, and lush valleys. The Hotel Tahiti Nui is a great place to stay, very centrally located, super modern, safe and... Continue Reading →
Drone paradise film aboard the Aranui 5 cruising French Polynesia from Tahiti, to Bora Bora and into the Marquesas.
https://youtu.be/Y_iWQIBsH5Y You want to talk about epic trips? This was one of them ... cruising around for 10 days aboard the crazy Aranui 5 through some of the most remote, beautiful, idyllic islands of French Polynesia was an adventure and a treat. And this party the last night aboard was the bomb. A feast unlike... Continue Reading →
The Aranui is a very special cruise ship, part cargo, part luxury liner, and all love. The dual nature of the vessel allows it to travel to some very unique destinations that most cruises do not service, mainly, the remote Marquesas Islands. The fact that you can visit this lost paradise island chain, free of... Continue Reading →
