Paraty Brasil Visuals

Paraty is one of my favorite places in all of Brazil. Just a few hour bus ride from Rio de Janeiro, its the perfect combination of rich history and natural beauty. The Cobblestone streets and white-washed buildings are surrounded by turquoise water and lush green mountains. And the best way to experience the area on … Continued

Ireland Road Trip

Sometimes you just have to say “let’s have a random adventure.” After a travel conference in London this past November, I had a few days to spare before I needed to catch a flight back to New York. With that time, I could have easily stayed put and wandered around London, but that relentless voice inside my … Continued

Mt Everest Base Camp Trek – Vlog V

Today is the day! We made our way up the trail in between the Khumbu glacial moraine and the mountain walls. We picked our way through massive boulders before reaching the town of Gorak Shep where we stopped for a well earned lunch. Recharged, we made our way past the moraine wall of Khumbu Glacier; … Continued

Mt Everest Base Camp Trek – Vlog IV

The golden rule of acclimatizing slowly is ‘climb high, sleep low’, so that’s what we did on day seven. Just outside Dingboche is a small peak called Nangkartshang. It’s a steep climb up the ridge, but slow and steady wins the race. We looked straight at Makalu, Lhotse and Cho Oyo – three of the six … Continued

Mt Everest Base Camp Vlog – Part III

Easter Sunday was spent as an acclimatization day, letting our bodies adjust to the higher elevation. We spent most of the day relaxing and playing cards at the Rivendell Lodge in Deboche, before a short acclimatization trek in the afternoon. We visited the Tengboche Gompa, an important Buddhist monastery in the Khumbu region, and we were … Continued

Mt Everest Base Camp Vlog – Part II

Starting out on day two in Phakding, we set off through a narrow valley divided by the Dudh Khosi River, passing terraced crop fields, small villages and ever-present prayer wheels (always pass on the left and spin them clockwise!). As we approach the entrance to Sagarmatha National Park, we were greeted with sensational views of massive snow-capped … Continued

A Journey to Mt Everest Base Camp [VIDEO]

The journey to Mt Everest Base Camp was nothing short of spectacular. It was exhausting, emotional, and unlike anything I had ever done. After a few days trekking through the Himalayas, it became very clear that Base Camp was no joke. It was such an amazing experience with our Active Adventures crew. If you have the chance, … Continued

Mt Everest Base Camp Trek (40 Photos)

The Mount Everest Base Camp trek was one of the most incredibly intense and beautiful adventures of my life. Unfortunately, just days after that amazing experience was complete, a massive earthquake shocked the region, and the storytelling from the trip was put on hold. Instead, we focused our attention on Active Hearts Himalaya and the relief efforts in Nepal. … Continued

The Tiger’s Nest Monastery (aka Paro Taktsang) outside of Paro, Bhutan is a magical and mysterious place that you have to see to believe. It’s a sacred Buddhist site cut high into the beautiful Bhutanese cliffs, where time slows down and tradition remains paramount.
