In most places, kayaking down a river would be a chance to commune with nature, but according to Michael Buckley, that’s not quite the case when the river you’re kayaking down is in Bangladesh. In Crowd-Surfing in Bangladesh, Michael discovers getting away from cellphones and finding personal space is impossible in poor but well-connected Bangladesh, especially when you’re paddling down the Teesta River.
Beebe Bahrami explains why visitors to Spain really should add historic Segovia to their itinerary. Once the headquarters for the bloody Inquisition, this easy to walk medieval village is steeped in history, complete with a Roman aqueduct and famous castle.
