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.

The Jaffa Clock Tower: Israel

jaffa clock tower,

Enter Jaffa, Israel.  Its thought to be one of the oldest cities in the world.  Who would have thought that just outside the party mecca of Israel (Tel Aviv) there would be a city with so much history? Aside from partying, Tel Aviv is also home to one of the fastest growing hi-tech sectors in […]

Back Flips Into the Jordan River: Israel

The Jordan River. THEE JORDAN RIVER.  Yesterday the Once in Lifetime Crew took us to a Kibbutz where we were able to swim on the Israeli side of the Jordan River.  I of course had to do my holy back flip into the water.  God did bless me with a great landing but he took my hair […]

Visiting Israel: My first Impressions

save a childrens heart

Visiting Israel has opened up my eyes to a world that I have never seen before, in or out of the media.  There is a conflict in Israel this is known.  What I don’t know is who stole who’s milk and cookies.  What I do know is that if someone stole my Butterfinger I would […]

No I will not lie and say that I took this bad ass picture on my safari in Kenya.  What I will say is that it was taken at Safari Walk inside the Nairobi National Park.  There were two cheetahs in the park and they were great posing for pictures.  The one that you are […]

Riding An Ostrich & Then Eating It: Nairobi, Kenya

  I don’t know if riding an ostrich and then eating it is the most ironic thing that I have done my life.  I do have to be honest that playing with the ostriches at the Maasai Ostrich Farm in Nairobi was very cool.  I got great video of a female mating dance and since […]

Maasai Ostrich in Nairobi, Kenya

This male ostrich can be found at the Ostrich Farm roughly one hour away from Nairobi, Kenya.  The current ostrich that you are looking at is a Maasai Ostrich that are originally from Kenya.  There are also Somali Ostriches on the farms as well which is the one that I was able to ride.  The […]

The Matatu Experience – Nairobi, Kenya

Riding a Matatu in Kenya is no easy task.  It can be one of the most horrible experiences in Nairobi or it can be one of the most unique things to do in the city. Figuring out exactly which Matatu to take is in a league all by itself.  There aren’t official bus stops and […]

The View of Montserrate – Bogota, Colombia

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 […]

Giraffe Up Close & Personal – Nairobi, Kenya

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 […]
