Sometimes adventure means going home

I made my way up the winding path, the South Pacific Ocean spread out before me, sparkling in the late afternoon light. It was a steep hike from my hotel, down below, in Paihia New Zealand. The air was crisp, cooling in preparation for the winter months ahead. A wave of fear came over me. Soon I would return home to Seattle, where the opposite was ...

LATAM Now Flying Direct to Puerto Natales

LATAM Now Flying Direct to Puerto Natales
With a new flight route direct from Santiago to Puerto Natales, the wonders of Chilean Patagonia and Torres del Paine are more accessible than ever.  CN Traveler says: It's never really been easy to visit the 935-square-mile Torres del Paine National Park in Chilean Patagonia, but that's part of what makes tens of thousands of travelers every year endure over 20 hours of travel (each way!) just to see it. This park, all pristine mountains and lakes carved by glaciers, is one of world's great natural wonders and, from this December, it'll be easier to reach than ever before.  The South American airline LATAM is set to revive a rare route from Santiago, Chile to Teniente Julio Gallardo Airport in Puerto Natales, the airport nearest Torres del Paine.

One of my favorite places on Earth lies in the verdant northeastern corner of Ecuador; Yasuni National Park is home to the Napo Wildlife Center , one of our most popular rainforest lodges. More importantly, Yasuni is home to hundreds of species of birds, mammals, insects and plants, as well as traditional home to two of Ecuador’s main indigenous cultures, the Kichwa and Huaorani . It sits at the convergence of the Andes, the Equator and the Amazon rainforest, what National Geographic has called “ … an ecological bullseye.” The name Yasuni may ring a faint bell, as this was the spot that Ecuadorian President, Rafael Correa, offered up to the world conservation community to purchase, rather than turn it over to oil companies for exploitation. Unfortunately, the deal never materialized. Here, on this 3:23 minute video, is a look at what we all stand to lose if this amazing...
