When you think of Thailand, what comes to mind? Maybe gleaming golden Buddha statues in chalk white temples. Or idyllic beaches with karst cliffs edging bays full of clear blue water with a white sand rim. Or spicy street food on a steamy Bangkok soi… How about campervans? No?

Our guide helped all the other women get into their climbing gear to prepare for the via ferrata in Sant Feliu de Guixols “I understand you are the spare,” he said in heavily accented English as he pulled the climbing harness straps tight around my legs.

I’ve been home for a week and I am still buzzing with excitement.

I have been to travel conferences where people are cynical and snooty and seem to more »

We are very much in favor of family adventures here at All Over the Map. And we are very much in favor of social activism as a family activity. So we were interested to hear about how one family from Nigeria took their activism to the ends of the earth. To the North Pole, in more »

Oh please don’t tell me there’s a Buddha theme park in the works, I thought. I spotted a brochure with this title at the Thailand booth at the DC Travel and Adventure Show not long ago. I feared it just might be something dreamed up by an enterprising Thai or expat to suck up a more »

Often when I travel I find that I get much more exercise than when I am working for hours at my computer at home. But I also often consume many more unhealthy calories while on the road. And any exercise routine I have developed is completely forgotten. But there must be a way to keep more »

    1 day ago by alloverthemap Saying "Hasta la vista" to the Vanamos family as they drive off into the sunset tomorrow to start a year-long adventure through Central America via Volkswagen van is bittersweet. We have really enjoyed getting to know this family over the past year, and we know they are going to have the adventure of a lifetime. We're going to miss them immensely, but we are going to love reading Paul's missives about their voyage on All Over the Map. Buen viaje! Continue reading »
