Pacific Voyages — Travel to places you will never go

My motto is: 'Travel to places you will never go.' Trust me when I say that where we're going, there are no roads.

Pacific Voyages is a new weekly multi-media magazine about the bizarre history and happenings of the vast Pacific Ocean, the world’s largest playground.

Jamis MacNiven is the founder and proprietor of Buck’s of Woodside, the restaurant known around the business world as Venture Capital Central for almost 30 years where Valley tech companies including Netscape, Hotmail, Paypal, Tesla and countless others had their earliest investment meetings.

With management of the restaurant now in the hands of his three sons and origin stories of tech giants now stuff of legend, Jamis has set his sights on new voyages — chronicling the fascinating and wondrous history of distant locales and remarkable voyages of the vast Pacific Ocean.

Subscribe to the blog and read articles weekly that are packed with intrigue and stranger-than-fiction history.

"When your work life is focused on meeting and greeting, it’s unsettling to slam the door shut and move on. But move on I did," Jamis said.

"My motto is: 'Travel to places you will never go.' Trust me when I say I will take you to places you have not considered. This is a vacation from the cares of the world with not a whiff of the virus. But watch out for malaria, beriberi, blackwater fever, typhus, cannibals, murderous mosquitos, sharks, sea urchins, saltwater crocodiles, deadly jellyfish, political shenanigans, white bread with Spam and wildly overpriced pina coladas."

"For me, it’s time for some blue water under the bow; so come with me and my parrot, Zimbabwe, and I’ll take you on a trip to strange and wondrous places."
