Ziplining near Machu Picchu in Peru

I have a choice, I realized as I was swinging in midair. Either I freak out or let go and enjoy. While fear is an emotion, often used as an excuse – I can't help it, I'm just too afraid to do it – I took a rational decision not to ...

Sandboarding The Dunes of Namibia

I ran a few steps and threw myself across a waxed slab of Formica, starting a screaming freefall down a huge sand dune in Africa. Sandboarding, both on your stomach and, better yet, on your feet, is bigger than big here in Namibia. You come to this country, made famous by ...
