I arrived early this morning on Boxing Day in steamy Guyana. My friend Johnny who I met a few years ago in the Philippines is a Canadian Guyanese (I think that’s how it would be said) and he picked me up from the airport and gave me the quick royal tour of the capital of […]

Belfast, Northern Ireland

Nothing tells me that I am on the Emerald Isle quite like having Guinness for breakfast. Granted I’m in Northern Ireland but it’s still as good as it is in Dublin. Even if you don’t like Guinness, you almost have to drink it here-it’s so good. Belfast itself is a really cool city thusfar an […]

Last Stop in Athens, Greece

As we left Cyprus and headed to the ancient city of Athens, the realization that the trip was ending had ensued with the usual mixed emotions of being excited and happy to see people back home but sad to be done with a fun time. I was making my second trip to Athens and was […]

Cyprus and Northern Cyprus

Cyprus is one of those places that you picture seeing in a Bourne or Bond movie as a place where someone goes to launder money or run some shady import/export thing. In truth it may be but the divided island of Cyprus has a lot to offer and a lot to do.

Rhodes, Greece

Once home to the Original 7 Wonder Colossus that bares its name, Rhodes is now a major tourist destination. The biggest island in the Dodecanese Islands, just off the coast of Turkey, Rhodes is a popular package tourist place for Germans, Italians and of course, Brits. Although all we seem to see is Germans by […]

4 Days in Corfu, Greece

Corfu, a Greek Island in the Ionian Chain is the kind of place you go to once and never return to. It is way to fun to go back to because you may never leave. Corfu is home to the legendary Pink Palace hostel, the crown jewel of the famous European hostels and certainly the […]

Albanian Adventure

When people think of Albania, they generally don’t think of good things. I knew this coming into Albania but was looking forward to it anyway because it was my last country to visit in Continental Europe. I still have a few islands to go but the hard ones are done and what a way to […]

Happy Birthday to Me in Dubrovnik

A great way to spend my 29th birthday was in Dubrovnik, Croatia where we met up with my other friend Jake and we explored the ramparts of the great walled city all day and celebrated way too long into the night in the alleyway bars of the old city.

Kotor, Montenegro

Kotor is a gorgeous coastal town in Montenegro-the newest country in the world. It is located in the most secluded part of Gulf of Kotor. The town has a population of 13,500, and is the administrative center of the Kotor municipality.

Belgrade, Serbia

Belgrade is a funny place. It’s not particularly pretty or that interesting on the surface but once you kind of dig deep down there is a lot to appreciate and like about this capital city.
