Pie is awesome, Pai sucks.

Pie is awesome, Pai sucks.

I know I’m not the first one to bash Pai. I am now, also certain, I won’t be the last. So much about this place is artificial. So what is it that put me off almost instantly from this place? Why are people trying so hard to be hippies? If you are a hippie that’s […]

Hong King Kong

Hong King Kong

I had no reason to come to Hong Kong. Zero. Other than some old (awesome) Jackie Chan movies I barely knew anything about it. It was a British something or other right? Well, the reason I stopped there in the first place was to just break up part of the flight on the way to […]

Have you been on an airplane before?

Have you been on an airplane before?

  What is your favorite part about a flight? I’ve broken down what I believe are the major categories of being on a bus in the friendly skies. I personally, prefer to actually fly the aircraft but no matter what airline you take it’s all pretty much the same routine. Who of us cannot recite […]

Favs from around the world

Favs from around the world

Has it really been this long since I posted? Well, it’s sad but true. Life has taken over for a while, a little longer than I’d like. I did have an epic trip in mind but reality stepped in and shut the door. However, it did give me time to look through some travel photos, nostalgize and […]

Boston – Part 2: It’s Fenway or the Highway

Boston – Part 2: It’s Fenway or the Highway

I’m an early bird. I know you non-morning people just cringed, and if you want to click on your home button and hate me forever, I understand…. But we both know you’ll be back. I was up early indulging in my morning indulgence. A skinny vanilla latte from Starbucks. Everyone’s wifi seemed to work but […]

Boston – Part 1: More Than A Feeling

Boston – Part 1: More Than A Feeling

Transportation: Why Boston? Everyone kept asking. Do I need a reason to travel somewhere? I’d reply. However, there was a purpose to the trip. Myself and two other bros were on our way to Fenway Park. A classic stadium and piece of Americana that is so dear to locals and baseball fans that the park […]

Dublin – Solo

Dublin – Solo

My heritage is mixed. Like most western’s we’re a mix of many other great countries. However my family name is Irish. From Gallagherclan.org: “The O’Gallaghers are the senior and most royal family of all the Kinel-Connell (the ancient rulers of what is today the greater part of Co. Donegal, Ireland)”, said John O’Donavan, the great […]

Istanbul’s Not So Grand Bazaar

Istanbul’s Not So Grand Bazaar

Istanbul, circa 17th century. The Ottoman empire rules the trade route between Asia and Europe. The Grand bazaar roof covers 3000+ shops connected by 67 roads, several mosques, Hamams and other daily merchant necessities. The appearance of arguing between vendors is simply polite negotiation. Random trinkets and textiles being thrown in your face “you buy! […]

Touring Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp

Touring Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp

 *WARNING* I am going to talk about an aspect of one of the most horrible events in human history. This is a post about what I learned at a Nazi concentration camp. The details of which can be upsetting, immoral and dehumanizing. Please if you are offended by the events or details of the holocaust […]

Bad dressing habits for visiting historical sites

Bad dressing habits for visiting historical sites

My Philosophical thoughts: When visiting specific places or sites around the world there are some considerations you need to research and be aware of before going. This is relatively challenging for me. I don’t like social conformity or being told what to wear, how to act or what not to say. Of course I’m never […]
