As a devout reader of the Washingtonian’s annual “100 Very Best Restaurants” edition, it’s safe to say that I’m a bit of a foodie-in-training. After 10+ years of living, working and playing in DC, I’ve eaten at my fair share of notable places. Rather than compile a list of my top

This week, I'm co-hosting the #FriFotos Twitter Event with @EpsteinTravels, @CharlesYap, @TravelDesigned and @lindsey_epperly. The theme? TREES! Here are my favorite tree photos... enjoy!

Most African Tourists Like Elephants.* No, this isn’t the latest travel trend. Rather it’s a mnemonic device for Africa’s northernmost countries: Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya and Egypt. I work at the National Geographic Channel, part of one of the smartest and most worldly organizations on the planet. I take a lot of

As a kid, I was fascinated with the concept hidden passageways and the thought that there could be a whole world of secret doings behind an otherwise ordinary facade. I've never found a hidden passageway of my own... until one recent night in DC I stepped through a secret doorway

I've always loved photographing windows. The structure, the architecture... the promise of what view lies outside it. Something about them always has enticed me to whip out my camera and snap a quick shot. And sometimes, it isn't even the actual window itself, per se, but the way a reflection bounces off

Living right outside DC, I see the Washington Monument all the time! Despite the relative normalcy of it, whenever I pass it by I always bring out my phone to snap a quick picture. Except, one day about a month ago, I was walking by the stone obelisk. It was ridiculously,

The Consitution, the Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights... Many people come to visit DC's National Archives to see some of the United States' most valuable documents. But outside the massive building (on the less-traversed back side) are two gigantic statues that yield a surprisingly profound message for passerbys

The weekly "Jazz in the Garden" event is one of the most popular summer activities in Washington, DC. Centrally located right off the Mall at the National Gallery of Art's picturesque Sculpture Garden, people pack in each Friday to enjoy the night's jazz act (everything from Brazilian jazz to Afro Funk to

Washington, DC is unquestionably beautiful during the day, with its vast marble monuments and powerful landmarks. But if you really want to see DC at its finest, stick around until after sunset... At night, a quiet beauty envelops the city, and it's hard not to feel humbled by the beauty,

Who hasn't wondered what it would be like to be on the Amazing Race? The idea of racing through some unknown land, uncovering clues and having a rip-roaring time along the way is enough to entice anyone to apply for the show.Luckily, I didn't have to go quite to that
