Travel Blogs

My travel blogs are written from my experiences traveling around the world, and they contain all the stories, tips, and awkward situations that I have gotten myself in. 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.

Apartment Hunting in South America: Wimdu Review

WIMDU

I don’t think that I could ever get enough of South America.  Being born and (partially) raised on the continent, it feels like home to me.  Every time I hear the different accents and interact with the people I feel like I was a kid again.  With good reason, I will be returning to make […]

How to Prepare For Kidnapping in Somalia-land

I admit it, I’m crazy for wanting to visit Somaliland.  Many people told me I was crazy when I wanted not only visit Colombia, but live in one of the cultures that has fascinated me for decades.  While the dangers in Colombia weren’t what most people were expecting: I don’t anticipate the dangers in Somalia […]

Things I didn’t like about Traveling To Israel

Israeli Stamp on passport, isreali stamp

My trip to Israel was nothing short of amazing and the one reason that I was invited to the country was to experience it.  The only thing that was asked of me by the Once In The Lifetime 2.0 Crew was that I talk about my experience in the country.  They didn’t ask to talk […]

It was 2pm when I arrived at the bus station in the capital of Lusaka after I started my journey at 11pm the night before.  My flight with Ethiopia airlines left Nairobi at 3.30am and I arrived in Lusaka, Zambia at around 11am where I would have to catch the bus.  The bus that people […]

Traveling to Africa is Tough? Try Madagascar!

I realize that Madagascar is in Africa but most people never consider visiting the country (definitely not Americans).  I was intrigued by the country ever since I found out about the Tsingy stone forest.  Once I arrived, I was completely caught off guard by the people and after a week & a half on the […]

Tel Aviv: The New York Miami Beach of the Middle East

Graffiti in Tel Aviv

My trip to Israel wouldn’t have been the same if I didn’t experience one of the world’s renown cities for both nightlife and financial prowess.  While Jerusalem may be the cultural & political center of Israel, Tel Aviv is the blood that feeds the veins of the country.  TeI Aviv is nowhere near as large […]

Visiting Madagascar isn’t Africa, Its Asia!

I never did any type of research before I decided to visit Madagascar.  There were only two things that I knew of and wanted to visit very badly, the stone forest in the Tsingy National Park and the Avenue of the Baobabs.  It was very similar to the reasons why I wanted to visit Zambia, […]

I didn’t get robbed in Johannesburg!

Gated doors in Johannesburg

I don’t think I have ever had as bad of a feeling about a city other than Johannesburg.  I met a young South African woman that grew up in the city while we were partying at Carnival in Brazil and she said to me “you can’t grow up in Jo’burg without getting robbed or mugged”.  […]

Curse You Central Africa!

Funny T-shirt from Livingstone, Zambia

Curse you Zambia!  After my trip to Israel I really thought I had my life figured out for a few days; live in Colombia for a few months, live in Israel for a few months, and go travel somewhere new for a few months.  Traveling to Zambia made me realize again how traveling around the […]
