Three Days In Brunei.  Of South East Asia’s myriad and popular options, Brunei might be the least known country in the region (well, except for East Timor). Brunei is located on the island of Borneo, which it shares with Malaysia and Indonesia. The Sultanate of Brunei was an independent nation for some centuries, whose power waxed [...]

20 Best Photos Of Afghanistan.  An ancient culture and land.  A country often invaded, enslaved and in turmoil.  A country in the news for all of the wrong reasons.  I spent two weeks exploring the country and witnessing a side of the country not typically shown on the front page of the newspapers.

Worst Travel Company Ever

By |2020-01-03T01:36:30-06:00January 3rd, 2020|Categories: Advice, Asia|

Worst Travel Company Ever.  I started to plan my trip to Pakistan, and I began the process I have utilized many times before.

Best photos of Uzbekistan. Uzbekistan had been on my bucket list for a long time. I heard the Silk Road and its rich history calling me.

Two-Week Agenda In Uzbekistan. Islam Karimov, Uzbekistan’s first leader from independence in 1991 to his death in 2016, ruled this country with an iron fist.

Watching Buzkashi In Afghanistan

By |2019-12-08T20:07:11-06:00November 27th, 2019|Categories: Asia, Unique Experiences|

Watching Buzkashi in Afghanistan. Buzkashi is not a sport for the faint-hearted. Think of polo on horses, but the ball is dead goat, missing its head. Men on horses compete fiercely to grab the goat off the ground (or from a competitor) and race to the goal while fending off other players. In Farsi, Buzkashi [...]
