The things said of Florianopolis were nothing short of exceptional. “There is nothing like the beaches on that island” one traveler told me. Anytime I googled anything including awesome and South America there was always one result that appeared continuously. Awesome + South America = Yep, Florianopolis. Considering that I have lived in 5 of […]
What the hell Portuguese? You have taken my language learning prowess and completely torn it into shreds. I can honestly say that Portuguese is my kryptonite (green rock that makes superman weak for my international readers).

It was the easiest way to enter Somaliland since getting a visa to Eritrea and Djibouti is harder than Angelina Jolie adopting an American baby. Once I arrived in the […]
You read that right, arrested and detained in the newest country in the world, South Sudan. I should have known when the South Sudan Embassy in Ethiopia asked for a written letter in order to take a picture. I should have known when a group of police officers told me I needed special permission from […]
