Getting Acclimated To Life In Rio de Janeiro

Day Trading in Brazil

Life in Rio De Janeiro hasn’t been the same since I arrived in the largest country in South America.  I would beg to mention something else that was very big that I found on the beaches of city but I will refrain from frightened the kiddos. It reminded me of many places I visited around […]

Dear Florianopolis: I am NOT impressed

Florianopolis Brazil

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 […]

The Portuguese Enigma: Stop Messing With My Head

Brazilian People

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).  I can compare the language to what I felt the first time I sent out to explore in Rio […]

Rio De Janeiro Reminds Me of Israel, USA, & Latin America

Sunset in Rio De Janeiro, sunsets

There is something very unique about not only Rio De Janeiro, but Brazil as a whole.  There are some countries that are similar to others and very few countries that are completely unique.  I wouldn’t consider Brazil to be entirely unique but the way that everything comes together is unlike any place in the world. […]

Returning To Where I Was Kidnapped & Shot At: Venezuela

Merida, Venezuela

I have a fascination with traveling to dangerous places but it’s not because they’re dangerous, it’s because most people don’t travel there. Everyone travels to Europe and Paris, c’est la vie!  I like visiting places that people don’t travel to and since the capital city of Caracas, and Venezuela,  have turned into one of the […]

First Impressions of Ethiopia: Beyond Fascinating

St Georges Cathedral Lalibela

I decided to visit Ethiopia not because I was interested in visiting the country, but because I wanted to visit every country in Eastern Africa. 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 […]

Welcome To The New & Improved WanderingTrader: Updates

Wandering Trader, WanderingTrader

I would like to formally welcome you to the new and improved WanderingTrader, I have made a significant amount of improvements to the site since I started being a travel blogger roughly 2 years ago and I thought that the site needed a much needed pick up. When I first started I honestly didn’t know what […]

The Chiva & Campesino: Jardin, Colombia

Jardin Colombia

This shot was taken on my trip to the Colombian coffee region in the small and quaint town of Jardin.  The small town is rich in culture and also on architecture and happens to be in the coffee region which is something great to experience. When I sit in the city we were able to […]

Cheetah Side Profile: Zambia

The Cheetah, my favorite animal since I can remember.  This was part of a few hour tour where I was able to walk Cheetahs and Lions.  This little guy was my favorite since he kept insisting on licking me and cuddling.  Cheetahs actually purr 10 times louder than cats and their tongues are extremely tough […]
