About Me

I am a constant explorer and the only thing I like to do as much as travel is to take pictures of what I am seeing.

Places I Follow

Matthew's Activity

ANew York City: Recommended tours in New York? Best way to experience New York City?

The best tour experience by far can be had from an organization called Global Greeters . The organization was started in New York and gives you personalized tours of places for free. Essentially you head to their website , signup for a tour and then you and the guide... See More

ABest gift FROM United States to give to hosts in Italy

Amanda I would think in the lines of food on this one. Possibly even cooking something for them when you are over there. Maybe pick a couple key ingredients (ie. spices that can't be found in Italy) so that you can do it together. Italian culture is all about people... See More

ATravel from Charlottesville VA to San Francisco by car on I-40

Shirley, with lunch breaks and gas stops you are looking at 9-hour days easy. While I think it would be good to have stops to break up the monotony of the freeway, I wouldn't pick anything too far off of your path. I have done several drives like that and by day 3,... See More

AEl Nido: Transportation from Incoming El Nido Bus to Hostel (How)

Makenzie, unless you have a crazy amount of luggage, just take a tuk-tuk (3-wheeled motorbike). The only info you should need for the driver is the name of the hotel, Casa Yolanda. If by some strange reason he doesn’t know where that is, just move on to the next guy.... See More

AMarrakech: Is it safe for a pregnant woman?

If you want to get a taste of Morocco and actually enjoy yourself, I would NOT go to Marrakech​ under any circumstance. Fez​ is a thousand times more enjoyable, a million times less stressful than Marrakech and serviced by all of... See More

ASri Lanka: Need info on getting from Colombo - Kandy - Bentota

Hiring a car to take you between all of your destinations would be the fastest, but it is truly unnecessary. One of the best ways to see Sri Lanka is by train and all three of the cities on your itinerary are connected via train. Colombo to Kandy... See More

AChefchaouen: Is Chefchaouen worth an overnight stay?

If the plan is to explore and photograph it, I would spend the night. The blue part of the city lays on a hillside and both sunset and sunrise provide a different experience, as the light touches various alleys and buildings. Without the sunlight though the town is just... See More

ASri Lanka: What is a great, secluded beach in the south or west to visit?

If you are looking for a truly secluded beach I would head more towards Tangalle over Mirissa. In particular check on Google maps for Surya Garden Guesthouse , you don't need to stay at that hotel exactly, but within a few hundred yards in either... See More

AItaly: What is the best way to get 4G Sim card for 10 days in Italy?

I haven't gotten a sim in Italy before, but I have done it in half a dozen other European countries. Typically you will need your Passport to get the sims and your phones must be unlocked to accept the new service. If your phones are not unlocked, it... See More

AHudson Valley: Best places to stop on a 3-Day Hudson Valley road trip in NY?

The first way I would look at it is to divide the trip into up on one side of the river and then back down on the other. Some of our favorite sites on the road trip where: 1) A walk through Sleepy Hollow Cemetery​ 2) A visit to Kykuit,... See More
