Beijing attracted worldwide attention as the home to the 2008 Olympics. Now that all the hype has died down, it’s the perfect time to visit. The city is a mix of modern (in part due to the government’s onslaught of construction to prepare for the influx of tourists during the global games)...

The World’s Largest Marathon: New York City

The World’s Largest Marathon: New York City
My favorite way to explore any city is to run or bike through it. And I was lucky enough to be able to join 39,000 people running through all five boroughs for the ING New York City marathon last Sunday. More than 100,000 people applied from all over the world. I took the Staten Island ferry to the...

Finding Nemo

Finding Nemo
I had many goals for my yearlong, around-the-world adventure: Hike the Inca Trail in Peru, volunteer in Kenya, do yoga school in India. I wanted to explore all the things I never had time to while slumped over my computer. Somehow I got the chance to try it all, and my final frontier was to dive into...

When spending time in Brazil, there are a few unofficial rules and must dos, such as: Make like a local and hit the beach in a skimpy bikini or speedo; initiate impromptu caipirinha happy hours any time during the day; find a reputable capoeira school and sign up for classes; and, last but not least,...
