Travel Blogs

I have traveled to roughly 80 countries now and have visited all 7 continents. Traveling around the world has taken me to the from desolate deserts of Africa all the way to the tropical climates of Asia and South America.

Getting To Know The Beautiful People Of Somaliland

Getting To Know The Beautiful People Of Somaliland

I’m not talking about physical beauty although there is a lot said about the beauty of the women in Somaliland (sorry ladies, you will have to judge the men on your own).  I am talking about getting to really know the people of a territory that is dying to be proclaimed their own nation.  The […]

Dear Peru: I really DON’T want to get to know you

flag of Peru

A traveler should never say that, especially a traveler like myself that has been living overseas and experiencing new cultures almost his entire life.  I don’t know if it is a mood that I am in but considering I had to leave Brazil to make a visa run at the end of the month anyway, […]

Getting Ready For the Next Adventure

I have been living in Rio De Janeiro now for two months and while I have loved it here I need to do a quick visa run.  What else is there to do than to take a quick trip to Peru & Chile?  After all, I can claim that I have been able to day […]

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 […]
