Surviving the World’s Most Dangerous Road in Bolivia

[WATCH IN HD] To be fair, it’s technically not considered the “World’s Most Dangerous Road” anymore. Due to the construction of a new highway close by, which directs most traffic away from its path, they’ve recently upgraded the trails nickname to a much more simple, passive and inviting moniker… “The Death Road” Okay, so the … Continued

Vancouver Riots 2011

Shots Needed For South America

I am trying to figure out what shots I need to go into South America, in particular Argentina. I’m guessing I don’t need anything to wild because Buenos Aires is such a big city, but if I travel elsewhere (which I plan to do) I will need to be on top of my game. Here … Continued
