NYC post – What are the chances I’d eat here?

Dead car batteries, black eyes from insecure housemates I probably will never explain on this blog, and a spontaneous free press trip outline some of my surprises on my road trip this past summer.

In Colombia, No Dar Papaya

That’s right folks, you shouldn’t give papaya. In America, we often say “‘Murica!” or “This is America!” in response to someone telling us we can’t trespass on that sweet climbing surface that just happens to be a local grocery store.

I’m going to be a Freemason for 3 days…

We’re off to MHacks, one of the biggest and baddest hackathons in the US. I don’t know much about it except it’s supposed to be tons of fun and it’s being held in the Detroit Masonic Temple! I nabbed the role of bus captain because I love to take every opportunity to flaunt my ego-…

Travel is Self-Improvement

The road to nowhere is the quickest road to yourself. When you change your surroundings, you are forced to look within yourself.
