I have developed a slight addiction to road trips since moving to southern California, after ...
This past June I spent 5 days exploring Maui, and it completely defied my expectations. It was my first time visiting any of the Hawaiian islands, and my previous experience with tropical islands was mostly limited to the Caribbean; I found myself completely unprepared for the much more peaceful, spiritual vibe in Maui. Before I […]
In the inland desert area of Southern California, affectionately dubbed ‘Methland’ by those who sometimes pass through, there sits an unusual roadside attraction called ‘Salvation Mountain‘, located in the actual middle of nowhere. It is approximately 45 minutes from the semi-abandoned communities dotting the the Salton Sea, and close enough to the Mexican border that […]
Pictures and stories about faraway places and unseen wonders can be very inspirational to jump start a travel hobby or lifestyle. But sometimes, a simple quote from an inspirational traveler or a great work of literature will be what really gets you out of your routine and into the world. No one can better express […]
A few years ago, I was on a Royal Olympic cruise around the Caribbean – my first one – and we made a pit stop at the San Blas Islands. Royal Olympic may now be defunct, but the memories from that trip will always stay with me, and none so vivid as my memories of […]
I lived four years of my life in Manhattan, and spent my middle and high school years in the Long Island suburbs of New York. Even with the schizophrenic weather, the hurried pace, and the massive crowds that make their home in this city, I will always love New York, and so will most people […]

I walked into an elegant dining room […]
Urban exploration has become a fun hobby for quite a lot of people, and I definitely count myself as one of them over the last couple of years. I’ve always had a fascination with abandoned places, whether it be individual buildings or whole towns. Besides giving visitors a little sneak peek into what a post-apocalyptic […]
Today’s rambling and completely unhelpful post brought to you by a Korean BBQ dinner. The good thing about living in large, diverse cities such as New York, Los Angeles, or London, is that you can get a small taste of different cultures without ever really leaving your city. New York has it’s famous Little Italy […]
Nothing drains the fun out of travel like four days of sleepwalking through a new city due to jet lag. Unfortunately, that’s what happens after flying across time zones in an uncomfortable, cramped plane. No matter how hard you try to beat jet lag, it will always affect you somewhat, but there are a lot […]
I always prefer spending a long time in a destination in order to really get to know a place, but sometimes my schedule just doesn’t permit me to do that. Short excursions provide their own kind of excitement, as I only have a day or two to get the most I can out of a […]
