Boat in the amazon, Galibi nature reserve, Suriname pictures, traveling by boat in the guyanas,

Put down your fat burger and swallow that carbonated sugar drink and hear me out for a second. I am not saying that we shouldn’t have environmentalists in the world but sometimes they take it to extremes. I experienced just this on my trip to French Guyana when trying to see the massive leather back […]

I arrived in Colombia with a completely different view of what I thought Colombia was going to be. My first impressions weren’t negative I just expected to see a little cocaine on the street, gorgeous women walking around, and the occasional AK-47 here and there. I didn’t see any cocaine on the surprisingly clean streets, […]

Best Fast Food In the United States of America

Best Fast Food In the United States of America

One of the things that characterizes the United States over any other country in the world. Our fast food has infected the entire world begrudgingly and they all love it as much as we hate to love it!

  Rolling through The Guianas in South America I ran into something that I didn’t think existed in our society today.

What McDonald's & Chinese People Have In Common

  I have been traveling most of my life and there are two travel lessons that I can give you that have saved me every single time.

Learning About A Country On A Drive From The Airport

Learning About A Country On A Drive From The Airport

It’s hard to learn about a culture before you have been there. Everyone usually is curious; what its like, is it going to be dangerous, what you should do, and what you shouldn’t. Being in awkward situations where people can’t understand you is part of the fun! Until of course, something dangerous happens to you […]

This is my 2nd story of my awkward situations in Argentina. If you would like to read more about these funny stories see the list at the end of the post. All of these stories seem to deal with Argentinians and their.. uhh.. manhood. The men of Buenos Aires are quite different in this respect, […]

This picture was taken in Deception Bay Antarctica during my trip to the great white continent.  This curious guy was one of the penguins that decided to completely surround me while I was in Deception Bay (see pics here) which is where most cruise operators take people to swim in Antarctic waters. There are various […]

Hello Bogota: Its Not Nice To Meet You

I am very glad that I decided to live in Medellin instead of Bogota, especially after my visit to the cosmopolitan capital. When I was first planning to live in Colombia it was between Bogota and Medellin. While being a very popular city Bogota is known for its crime, especially at night. Is Bogota Dangerous I […]
