Tue, 14 Nov 2017 07:16:17 PST

Can you actually make money with a sports, fashion, food, travel or any kind of blog? Most people either don’t believe it’s possible or feel that they lack the confidence, computer skills, and writing ability to begin. In the beginning, I had held a similar skepticism, and complete lack of confidence. But today, I’m making enough money through this blog to […]

After a Tom Yum soup filled five days in Bangkok I’ve just arrived to Nepal.

Sala Rattanakosin: Bangkok’s “Floating” Boutique Hotel

Wed, 17 May 2017 20:34:28 PDT

We had just spent the day exploring Bangkok’s Grand Palace, and the great reclining Buddha at Wat Pho. As we headed back towards the river to catch a boat home, I took us down the wrong ally. Little did I know, it would be one of the best wrong turns I ever made. At the end of the ally, […]

A Bamboo Forest Cabin In The Japanese Countryside

Sat, 13 May 2017 21:12:53 PDT

Our train hurries away from the murky concrete sprawl of the world’s largest metropolis. It now hangs slow and tight along a winding ridge. A bright green bamboo forest brushes by. It suddenly gives way to an expanse of fields and mountains that take some seconds to comprehend. In the distance, pinks, reds and whites juxtapose dark greens. The colors flow down into […]

In Thailand we discovered a unique blend of Buddhism, learned how to ride scooters, and of course 6$/hour massages. In Japan we gained insight into the Japanese philosophy of life. We learned to […]

In March I want to travel from my hideout here on Lake Atitlan, all the way back to Japan for Runaway Japan 2016. At first glance, inserting Guatemala City to Tokyo Narita on Kayak, Google Flights and Skyscanner offers dismal prospects; 18 to 40 hour flights that are all over 1000 USD. For my budget […]

Lake Atitlan Hideout is a private apartment nestled among pines and palms on the side of a mountain with epic and unobstructed views of the sunrise & sunset. It’s where perspective altering views meets pure living, deep sleeps and hammock relaxation. It’s a place to simply slow down, de-stress, discover the Maya, live incredibly cheap, and enjoy spring […]

If I Could Go Anywhere…

Thu, 22 Oct 2015 08:43:03 PDT

Where would I go? The answer for me is a simple one. The birthplace of my favorite explorer with whom I share the same name. One of the most historically enigmatic and geologically epic islands in the world. A country that I’ve flown over more times than I can count yet still haven’t blown open the […]
