The view from Montserrat in Bogota, Colombia is an incredible thing to see.  The view you are looking at is to the left of the main city center but one of the best shots that I could take.  Since Bogota is higher in elevation it is usually cooler than the other cities in the country […]

Petting & Kissing A Giraffe – Nairobi

This is probably one of the funnest things I have done so far while living in Nairobi.  The place where you can get to pet and slobbered on by giraffes is called The Giraffe Center located roughly 12.5 miles (20 km) outside the core of Nairobi.  It was a really great experience especially since I […]

The Giraffe Center in Nairobi Kenya is one seriously cool place.  Not only can you get completely slobbered on by giraffes but you can also capture pictures like the one I took below.  If I am not mistaken this is the “dude, stop playing with me and give me some food” face.  I tried to […]

This picture was the only time that the cheetah actually stood up.  There was a group of three under the tree and if you look very closely the animal looks pregnant.  It was 12pm and it was most likely after a very large meal.  There were roughly 11 safari cars huddles around the group of […]

Ah Zebra Love.  I wonder how the mating process goes exactly and which one of these two creatures is the man in the relationship?  I mean they did just approve gay marriage in New York guys I am not judging.  I saw these two love birds on what I call the poor man’s safari while visiting […]

The Tempting and Tasty Food of Thailand

Thailandis one of the most popular tourist destinations the world has to offer and a regular on the wish list of backpackers and mainstream tourists.  It’s certainly easy to see why the country is so popular if you begin to examine everything it has to offer.

The Big 5 in Africa are truly amazing especially if you get within inches of animals that could tear your heart out.  “The Big 5” refers to the major animals that you want to see whenever you go on safari; Rhino, Elephant, Lion, Leopard, and Buffalo.  I had an out of world experience when I […]

Only Token White Boy at the Club: Nairobi Edition

It was Saturday night and there was a brisk cool breeze coming out of the Serengeti in Nairobi, Kenya.  How a wind stays cool for a few hundred miles is besides the point.  It was pouring rain and everyone was wearing a jacket since they thought it was cold.  The first question that I was […]

A New Game for Travel Bloggers: Travel Roulette

And The Winner Of This Weeks Travel Roulette Is “You might think you go home, but you are not going home.” Words you don’t want to hear when you’re travelling alone in a strange place. In my case, it was the middle of the day in Rio and the man who uttered them slipped next […]

The Punta Tombo Penguin Colony is one of the most amazing places to see penguins.  I found this little guy after I saw the hoard of people crowded around the imaginary “do not cross line” taking pictures.  Its one of two penguins chicks that I have ever seen.  The other I was fortunate to see […]
