Documents of the Black Lives Matter protests, New York City

As the world struggles with racism, we have been watching the United States closely as black people continue the fight against police brutality. To our audience of many different races and cultures, black people are the only people who came to America in chains. The treatment of black people in Am…

Belgians show us how horseback shrimping is done.

Unlike shrimping on a boat, traditional Belgian fishermen catch ‘em on horseback. The Belgians have taken this kind of fishing to great heights. The horseback fishermen’s love for the sea and unspoken bond with their horses are key to keeping this century-old shrimping practice alive. This slow food…
The Underwater Winery

The Underwater Winery

Today we head out from the comfort of our couch to the Southern part of Croatia to the Penisular of Pelješac, diving down to the seabeds of Adriatic sea in search of the underwater winery. We’ve all heard of the boozy treasure salvaged from shipwrecks, from the 170 years old Champagne to the 200...
Tram Ride In Johnson Space Center

Tram Ride In Johnson Space Center

A trip to Johnson Space Center, home to human space exploration since 1961 has been a long time dream. I was thrilled to finally set foot on the holy space ground, walking down the same path where great men and women have paved the way to space. What an honor! No doubt I got good chills running thro…
The Deep South of Area 51

The Deep South of Area 51

One of the greatest fears I had when traveling through the desert was the thought of car breaking down in the middle of nowhere with no water, no cell service and ‘help’ offered by the unexpected stranger. I am blaming this entirely on all the films and series I grew up with. Learning for the past..…

Ponytail + Glasswing in the Pacific North West

Last week I went over to see my friends Forest and Alissa who own Glasswing, a beautiful store in downtown Seattle, the meeting point for mountain and sea in the Pacific North West. The store is a proud reflection of the area's incredible geography, a lush terrain where trees are as tall as skysc..…

Welcome to the second rendition of our Saigon series, with special guests, Kiro Hirata and Eric Kvatek! This chapter, we stop for a hearty breakfast, visit the army surplus market, and take a moment to reflect on the terrible wars that held Vietnam captive for decades. For me Vietnam is a gat...
Crossing The Bottleneck

Crossing The Bottleneck

One of the most exciting train rides I had was across the Straits of Messina from the tip of the Italian boot in the province of Reggio Calabria to Messina, Sicily. The train journey started in Milano Centrale, stopping in Naples for transfer. As the train came to a halt at Villa San Giovanni sta..…
