48 hours in Calgary

Thousands of out-of-towners descend on Calgary in early July for Stampede. The 10-day, rodeo-centric event isn’t everyone’s can of beer, but as I discovered, you don’t need to like barrel racing or bull riding to fall in love with Cowtown. The city’s bikeability, dynamic dining scene and proximity to unspoiled wilderness prove she’s no one trick pony.

Photo Essay: 36 hours in Amsterdam

Choosing to take a lengthy layover in Amsterdam en route to Kenya is a ‘Dam good idea, I recently discovered. The Venice of the North does more than simply break up the monotony of 20-odd hours on planes and in airports; it winds you down and fills you up. There’s even a Dutch word for the feeling: gezellig. Easy to get around, on foot or by bicycle, the city makes a little time go a long way. Art, sightseeing, genever tasting, Michelin star meals—all in under 36 hours.

The Itinerary: Robert Wright’s Miami, Part I

Robert Wright’s Instagram bio simply reads “escape artist,” and he’s good at it. His last gig as Soludos’ director of marketing took him ’round the world—India, Morocco, France, Portugal—and now that the New Yorker is running his own global wanderings-inspired brand, he’ll be racking up even more miles.

Photo Essay: Park City

A spotlight shines on Park City, Utah every January when celebs and film execs clog its quaint streets for the Sundance Film Festival, but the ski town doesn’t need star power to entice visitors. Just 45-minutes from the Salt Lake, it’s one easiest ski destinations to reach from an international airport. That leaves more time for skiing, obviously, but also all the other good stuff, such as whisky tasting, boot shopping and hot tubing. Herein, I recount my winter weekend itinerary.
