Travel Like A Boss: Paragliding In Rio De Janeiro, Brazil

Jun 25th, 2013 at 11:00AM: Rio de Janeiro boasts some of the beaches you'd spy on calendars, postcards and the odd screensaver in your dentist's office cubicle farm. So when we passed through on a whirlwind trip to Brazil, I took the advice of our friend Kent Wein to jump off a mountain to get a better look at things, as they say. Paragliding – it's a growing sport in this South American country, and it's easy to...

Travel Like A Boss: Secret Speakeasy, Please Don't Tell - Secret New York Food Spots Part III

Mar 29th, 2013 at 9:00AM: Like "Best Pizza" and "Most Delicious Bagel" lists, New York City also has its own unofficial hot dog competition outside of Nathan's annual gorging-on-the-beach. Amongst the contenders, I side with Crif Dogs in the East Village, hands down. While you can always grab a bun filled with a wondermeat dog on any NYC corner, Crif packs each hot dog with enough love and artery clogging goodness to...

Travel Like A Boss: Tehuitzingo Tacos - Secret New York Food Spots Part II

Mar 25th, 2013 at 11:00AM: A number of years ago while hitchhiking up Baja, Mexico, I ended up on the bed of a pickup truck, rolling around with pickaxes, rakes, bags of trash and my backpack. Gripping the edges of the truck's frame, I was so hungry; I wondered what would be worse: dying in Mexico of starvation, or dying in Mexico from being flung from the truck. I figured that regardless of how it went down, my Jewish...

A Tour Through The World's Longest Bar In Düsseldorf, Germany

Aug 29th, 2012 at 1:00PM: Taking advantage of a long layover in Düsseldorf, Germany last month, we took a team into the city to check out the reported longest bar in the world. Bad news? It's not an actual bar but actually a series of bars linking across several miles of real estate in downtown Düsseldorf. Good news? It involves copious amounts of drinking and bar-related activities, including but not...

Travel Like A Boss: Onboard The Fastest Monohull Sailing Boats In The World

Jun 11th, 2012 at 12:00PM: Gadling Labs was on assignment in Miami last month, checking in on the progress of The Volvo Ocean Race. Things were going well for our old friends on Team Abu Dhabi, who finished in first place in the in-port race and continued on to win leg seven in the marathon race around the world. In episode two of "Travel Like a Boss" we wander through Azzam, Abu Dhabi's VO70 ocean racer for a look under...

Travel Like a Boss: Onboard Singapore Airlines new A380 out of JFK

Travel Like a Boss: Onboard Singapore Airlines new A380 out of JFK Feb 15th, 2012 at 10:00AM: Casting away most comforts afforded a modern traveler, Gadling Labs typically ventures out as cost-effective as possible; be it on a boat, the back of a pickup truck or the occasional Mongolian yak. But when Singapore Airlines announced they were bringing the A380 to the United States, we couldn't resist. Packing our bags for JFK we checked in on the new aircraft which started service among...
