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.

This is what I had the pleasure of looking at for two days on the southwest coast of Madagascar.  Its a small city of Ifaty with a great hotel where I made a great Malagasy friend.  The most popular beaches in Madagascar are found on the northern coasts of the island while most beaches in […]

My 3 Week Trip To Madagascar

Map Of Madagascar, madagascar map

Madagascar is such a unique country that is blessed with a special mixture of people.  Not only will you be able to see the unique blend of people on the faces of the Malagasy, you also will be able to see a variety of flora & fauna that is unique to Madagascar.  When I decided […]

Getting Smuggled Into Somaliland

Ethiopian Customs Somaliland

It really felt like we were being smuggled into a country territory that is deeply misunderstood by the entire world.  We left Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia, at a shockingly good time (at 5.28, roughly 2 minutes before we had to leave at 5.30).  What was even funnier is the advertisement on the bus […]

Confessions Of A Sleepless African Safari

Confessions Of A Sleepless African Safari

The day turned out great after we spent our first day on Safari.  I was able to see The Big 5 after it was all over but there is one night that sticks out in my mind like it was yesterday.  It wasn’t when our car broke down and we arrived late or even when […]

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 […]

Twinkie & Pretzel Bus Ride: Zambia

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!

Antananarivo Madagascar, Antananarivo, tana 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 […]
