Taking Travel For Granted

They say that travel is the best teacher, I really can’t describe how my perceptions and thoughts have changed while I have been traveling around the world during the last year.  I was born in a third world country, raised in a 1st world country, spoke 3 different languages at the age of 20, and […]

Conquering Eastern Africa (Madagascar & Vic Falls Too!)

Map of Africa

The time has come to explore all of Eastern Africa.  So far I have only explored Nairobi, considering that I have been officially living in Kenya for about 2 months and my South Sudan Visa is going to take longer than expected, I decided start my journey at the Victoria Falls.  The main reason is […]

How Traveling is Breaking My Heart

Petting a cheetah, petting cheetahs

Traveling around the world sucks, literally I can’t even begin to organize all of the thoughts, pictures, people, weird things I have put in my mouth, and unique things that I have experienced within just the last 6 months let alone the last year. This site was only meant to be a traffic generator for […]

Traveling to Israel is like Colombia, Sababa Parce!

Colombian Men

I didn’t know that two countries that were so different could have so many similarities.  Both countries happen to be bordered by 5 countries and have a great coastline.  While I didn’t get to explore the coastline in Israel, be aware that the Colombian Coast is the land of hustlers.  It isn’t so much the […]

Exploring the Religions in Israel: The Bahai Faith

There were some very exciting things that I did on my trip to Israel like doing back flips into the Jordan River and scuba dive with Dolphins.  There was also very interesting aspects of religions and culture that we were able to learn about.  Two of those religions that I learned about most people haven’t […]

Nairobi is Sweet. Wonderful. Chaos.

Picture of Nairobi Kenya

I have been living in Nairobi for nearly two months and I cannot describe what the city is like.  Living here is similar to describing what cheesecake feels like in your mouth for the first time, you just can’t do it.  I just came back from my trip to Israel and received culture shock for […]

The Big K & Israeli Backstreet Superstars

One of the things that I love about traveling is meeting different types of people from around the world and interacting with them.  My trip to Israel included roughly 10 or 15 Israelis otherwise known as our babysitters, 2 women from China and Singapore otherwise known as the kids, an Australian, and an Indian known […]

The South Sudan Visa Project

My 13 Day Trip Israel

I can’t really begin to describe how amazing the trip to Israel was.  I got to see a side of Israel that is so far from the conflict that is always described on the news.  The Israel Ministry of Tourism, Stand With Us, and the entire Once In  Lifetime Crew did a great job of […]

Learning How to Speak Hebrew (Basic Expressions)

Hebrew is one of the oldest languages that is still spoken today.  While traveling to Israel I was able to pick up on many of the basic expressions to get around such as “are you single” and “you are very beautiful”.  Oops, wrong blog!  Its a bit harder language to pick up since the vowels are […]
