A recent trip to Austin, Texas for the annual Austin City Limits Festival (ACL) of 2009, had me both confused and excited. As we began our final decent into the “weirdest part of Texas,” I had no clue what I was in for. From my previous travels and venturing around Austin, I was reminded somewhat Read More
It’s getting to be that time of year again, the time I usually start setting things into motion- a habit learned from…
A few weeks ago I made a trip up to Los Alamos, CA to visit Flatbread- Full of Life, the home of some of the most amazing food Iâ€™ve ever had. I struggled with this post (hence it being weeks overdue) because there simply werenâ€™t words for how impressed I was…
We made our way back to visit Cuco and Pilar at Rancho Pilar where we witnessed a lot of growth in the area. A family of Canadians has begun constructing a huge house at the top of the hill overlooking the beach where Wil and I camp. It’s sad to see the land develop, it was kind of nice having a remote camping spot with friendly neighbors.

I came back from a Semester At Sea, travelling the world for 103 days in 12 countries and coming back to America was in no way anything like I expected. I came back with new eyes, a new perspective and appreciation for cultures and humanity in general. I found myself so confused by the arrogance Read More
Port #6. Chennai, India. I am sitting here at the Varanasi with a red clay dot (Tula) on my forehead and I honestly don’t know where to begin. India is not what I expected. I arrived in Chennai and it gave me a horrible impression of what I was going to be experiencing for the Read More
Hawaii. We got onto the ship in Ensenada, Mexico and Alie and I went to the closest bar for some serious Margaritas before on-ship time. T minus 1 hour. These Margaritas were huge!
Port Number 5. Myanmar. Myanmar, or Burma as it was called, was absolutely amazing! I arrived at Yangon Port and took a 45 minute bus ride into the city. Rangoon city was unlike any of the previous ports and to my surprise, Hong Kong now had competition for my favorite city on the itinerary. The Read More
