First let me apologize for the massively long post, I was inspired. Think about this for a second, where does everyone want to travel to? According to World Tourism Rankings, Europe has 5 of the top 10 visited countries in the world. The most visited city in the world is Paris, that’s why they say […]

We have one goal in mind, keep going. Keep seeing those unique wonders of the world that everyone strives to see.

I really love it when I see cultures resonate through other cultures.  We have seen this extensively in the world with American culture.  Jamaican Reggae has also resonated through the world with its laid back music.  Reggae music can be found through Europe, (Alborosie-on of my favs), and even through Brazil (Nati-Ruts).  I met a […]

Admiring Penguins in Port Lockroy, Antarctica

Port Lockroy, Antarctica

Antarctica is very magical place, to try to describe it wouldn’t give it justice.  This picture was taken at Port Lockroy, a British museum and post office.  The official “most southern most post office in the world” which will take 2 months for post cards to arrive since everything is sent via ship.  Ironically the […]

First Impressions of Living in Colombia

EFFECIENCY: When you think of Latin America there is nothing more that comes to the mind other than corruption and disorder. Many have even gone as far to say that part of the charm is the disorder. That charm may be the case when you are visiting for two weeks, but when you are living […]

Dangers in Colombia?  This is a topic of heavy conversation especially in Colombia.  Since the era of the drug wars and Pablo Escobar, there has always been a tainted mentality about the country.  Everyone thinks its not safe to travel there and that every American is going to get kidnapped! I was kidnapped last night, but only to […]

Food in Italy: Don't Mess With My Pasta

The video below is just for kicks and giggles but the story you are about to read really did happen to me.  When I was living in Sicily I had one of the nicest landlords on the planet.  He was Italian which means his name had to be Giuseppe (insert hand motions here).  During one […]

I honestly was never a huge Godfather fan, I have watched all three films and did enjoy them but not fanatical about them.  What I have been more obsessed with is the actual Italian Mafia.  When I was living in Sicily for close to two years I actually ran into the Mafia, everywhere. The first […]
