Because of the media, and any news source that I have come across recently, my expectations for my visit to Israel were quite low. In my mind the Middle East and Israel was going to be dangerous and not worth a visit. Thankfully I made the trip anyways, to find out for myself. I was [...]

Even after four years and 67 countries, I have yet to see the Pyramids of Giza, which are arguably the number one destination on anyone’s list. Until today. Today I dumped the backpack and flip-flops, and went full tourist here in Cairo. I left my tiny budget hostel, rode the dirty metro, took a taxi [...]
This is a post of what I hope isn’t too much of a generalization of what I have learned about religion, and the conclusions I have made in the process. To make it clear, I (think) I believe in god, but I definitely don’t believe in religion. I wholeheartedly believe that religion was made by [...]
Have you ever planned an amazing trip and just knew your photography skills just wouldn’t be up to the challenge of really showing the true beauty of the place? I have, quite often in fact. So when it came time to dive Thislegorm near Sharm El Sheik, Egypt, I was pleasantly surprised and relieved to learn [...]
If anyone ever tells you that Italy isn’t all that, you should know they’re plain and simply wrong. Italy IS all that and then some more. The movies, the magazines, the postcards – they don’t just portray a beautiful myth. The streets really are narrow with laundry drying out on tiny balconies, flowers hanging over [...]

This hitch in particular, Croatia, Bosnia, Serbia and Romania. Hitchhiking the Balkans How it started out, was [...]
Street art in Miami is taken pretty serious by its artists. The Wynwood Art District is filled with street art every which way you turn.

WARNING, Dahab is one of those places that sucks you in and never lets you go. I was originally planning on being here for a week, and that was 7 months ago. There is lots to do, and its a beautiful place, but I think that it’s the whole vibe here, that makes you never [...]

If you were to map all of these claims, you would see spatterings in the Caribbean, The Red Sea, [...]
