Odessa, Ukraine

I am a bit behind on posting again and the last few days have been super crazy and action packed. I spent some time in Odessa, Ukraine which is an old Soviet summer resort which is now a crumbling shadow of its former self. The other major Black Sea resorts in the Crimea, still in […]

Yerevan, Armenia

I was only going to have about 12 hours in Yerevan before I had my hellish 3am flight this morning to Odessa via a six hour layover in Prague (which it rained the whole time by the way). I was mixed on what I was going to do in Yerevan on my hellish Minibus ride […]

Tbilisi, Georgia

I have some catching up to do here so stick with me. By the way I will add pcitures once I get back and can easily upload them, thanks for asking everybody though. I have been running around ragged the last few days having blast but not really sleeping and not having any time to […]

A Long Day and Night in the Caucasus

Yesterday was a long, long day. I woke up early in Baku to catch a short flight to Nakhichevan which was of course delayed but once I got there it was worth the hassle of getting out there. Going to Nakhichevan was kind of like visiting another world. The place is in no mans land […]

Baku, Azerbaijan

I finally arrived here in Baku, very early this morning. Flying in here, I had that great feeling of “This is really cool”. I had that same feeling flying into other new mysterious places like Sri Lanka, Western Sahara and Easter Island. Baku has not disappointed, it is a very cool and an extremely pleasant […]

In Transit at Heathrow

I am currently in the British Airways lounge in terminal 4 at Heathrow Airport. I arrived at 6:10am this morning and have been in London all day because my flight to Baku isn’t until 9:05pm tonight. Crazy layover but thankfully my good friend Morroni has a flat here in East Central London so I went […]

Brits Are Voted the Worlds Worst Tourists

Britons have been labelled the world’s worst tourists in a survey of tourist boards around the globe. Research by online travel service Expedia suggests Brits abroad are the least well-regarded by foreigners. They are the rudest, meanest, worst-behaved, most linguistically incompetent and least adventurous vacationers, the study published on Friday claims.

Le Tour de “Who Cares”

I have never been a big Tour de France fan. So I am not going to pretend I long for the days of Lance Armstrong and Greg Lemond winning the worlds most prestigious cycling event. I really couldn’t care less. I am a huge sports fan and not just American sports so I feel that […]

Where am I?

Palma de Mallorca, Mallorca, Spain

Be Like Hemingway

I think that every traveler has a little bit of Hemingway in them. His writings are equally inspiring and interesting. My favorite Hemingway book is The Sun Also Rises. Of course, this brings our hero to Pamplona, Spain for the Fiesta de San Fermin, which is more commonly recognized as the running of the bulls. […]
