Walk For Miles Into Dublin Bay

Walk For Miles Into Dublin Bay
Next time you’re flying into Dublin, look out the window and down into Dublin Bay. Right at the center, stretching out from the smokestacks of Ringsend, is a sea wall with a little red lighthouse at the end. While it is a great sight from the air – it is even better when you’re strolling along it on a warm spring evening. Yesterday I decided to take advantage of the sunshine and go for one of my favorite walks in the city: the Great South Wall. Sometimes during the winter, this...

New zip line launches in Saint Lucia

New zip line launches in Saint Lucia
Admittedly, I’m a bit of a wimp when it comes to heights, but Rain Forest Aerial Trams in Saint Lucia has launched a new zip line that sounds too good to pass up, even for those of us who don’t like flying through the air at incredible speeds strapped to a cable. The eco-adventure company, which also has zip lines in Costa Rica, Dominica and Jamaica, has a new zip line tour called the Adrena Line (one can only assume this refers to the adrenaline rush produced by participating in said activity). It...

Seattle Author Harry Rutstein: The Marco Polo Odyssey

At last year’s adventure travel Expo, I met Harry Rutstein, a local Seattle writer and big time adventure traveler.  Over a period of about 10 years, Harry re-traced the steps of Marco Polo, and his 13,000 mile route across Europe and Asia.  In doing so, he became the first person to travel the route over what’s been called the Silk Road. It took three expeditions (1971, 1981, and 1985) to cover the Silk Road.  The journey started in Venice, and traveled through Israel, Turkey, Iran, Afghanistan,...
