The Utah Desert by Motorcycle

By |2021-05-05T18:41:27+00:00May 15th, 2017||

One of the last things one looks forward to when planning to ride a motorcycle is snow. Yet, as my flight landed in Salt Lake City flurries were falling from the steely April sky, obscuring the mountains that ring Utah’s capital. I was in the state to spend a few days exploring courtesy ...

An Off-Season Guide to Montauk, NY

By |2021-05-07T16:17:58+00:00October 4th, 2016||

The sleepy town of Montauk is 120 miles from New York City, on the easternmost end of Long Island. Long hailed as the "anti-Hamptons", the chichi-ness of the Hamptons is slowly creeping in—but nonetheless, the fishing town still maintains its rough, rustic charm.

With equally picturesque water and shore landscapes, Block Island has been a favorite spot of mine since my initial sailing excursion there a few years back. Formed by glaciers that pushed their way down the East Coast ten thousand years ago, the rocky landscapes that make up its shoreline lie 15 miles from Montauk Point, and ...

An Off-Season Guide to Nantucket, MA

By |2021-05-05T19:29:28+00:00August 22nd, 2016||

Though I'm now embarrassed to admit it, our invitation to Nantucket felt confusing. The only preconception I had of the island were thanks to J. Crew magazines—and therefore the only mental pictures I could conjure up were of model types wearing "Nantucket red" (aka pink) polo shirts with popped collars on fancy boats. ...

American Tourism in Cuba: How We Legally Visited a Long-Forbidden Gem

By |2021-05-05T19:35:55+00:00July 17th, 2016||

In June of 2016, we escaped Brooklyn to a place that felt much more like time travel than jetsetting. We "escaped" our familiar American culture and all that comes with it: the internet, our credit cards, cell phones, and readily available anything. We went to Cuba. Armed with a government approved itinerary, a Spanish-English ...

Nestled alongside the Hudson River at the foot of the Adirondack Mountains, The Brampton is a classic lodge that balances rural isolation with contemporary comfort. A recent invite for a weekend in the woods had me headed north via motorcycle to take advantage of roads a far cry from NYC’s traffic-clogged pavement. Being located ...
