Sometimes You Just Gotta Riot

September 19, 2009  |  No Comments

yo ice cream, i’m really happy for you, and imma let you finish, but NUTELLA CREPES ARE... There was something I wanted to do before leaving Nice. This was a mandatory item on the itinerary. Before I left France I wanted to have the delicious springtime treat that is nutella crepes. There’s a dessert cafe in the middle of Nice that’s in the same square as the best restaurant and best ice cream shop. The last side of the square holds the Palais de Justice courthouse. I’m about to overpay for a simple crepe but at this point I’m locked on like...

Surviving Nice Part 2

September 13, 2009  |  No Comments

It was 4:30 in the morning in the north of Nice when me and Nikolov started wandering towards the beach to my hostel. I was on my guard while walking with him just in case the fucker was gonna try to mug me along the way. It was a nerve racking and helpless feeling at the same time. At any point I was ready to Usain Bolt away from the guy. He must have sensed me being unnerved, and kept saying: “No worry, I am a good boy” I thought what he said sounded weird coming from a fully grown fat man with...

Change Clothes and Go

September 3, 2009  |  No Comments

“you know i stay fresh to def, boy from the projects and imma take you to the top of the globe so let’s go” - Jay-Z Hostel One was a nice choice and I’m gonna be sad to leave it and Madrid. Something tells me though, that I will return there one day. Unlike most hostels, it’s clean and has a nice living room area to hang out in. Which is important because sometimes you just need a place to crash after checking out of your room for the day. There’s also a computer lab for people to use the internets....

Vodka Redbull Por Favor

“..but late in the evening, the Spanish people they make party about 1 or 2 o’clock in the night...” - Michael the German In the past week I’ve been both thoroughly seduced by Barcelona’s nightlife while charmed by Valencia’s extensive collection of street art. I always thought my sleeping cycle was weird until I landed in Barcelona. I’ve just been living in the wrong place my entire life. In España the locals usually will have dinner around 10PM and then start getting ready to go out at about midnight. This is my kind of city! For my first night in this vibrant bustling...

Mustache Fun

August 21, 2009  |  No Comments

As facial hair goes, there’s the full on beard, the 5 o’clock shadow, and then there’s the mustache. I feel as if the mustache gets a bad rap these days (just like fanny packs, but that’s another story). We all know the mustache used to be prevalent in society. The news man used to wear one, and we trusted him. Now, mustaches are found few and far in between and are worn mainly by child predators. I feel the need to change this perception. Chicago, prepare to be mustache-ized! Anywhoo... I’m here in Chicago and I bought a CTA pass at...

Some Things You Just Can’t Pack

August 6, 2009  |  No Comments

So I’m sitting here in my apartment in Fountain Valley and I’m starting to pack for the first time for this trip. Which sounds pretty great, but I’ve never gone on a worldwide trip before so it’s difficult to know exactly what to bring. But whatever, it’s time to finalize the roster on what to bring! Each selection was chosen to help me in my travels around the world. Namely, it has to be highly functional, somewhat light, and finally rugged. This is what I think I’ll need to survive: Of course I’ll be doing the touristy things, but I...

Preview: Chicago

August 3, 2009  |  No Comments

One week in Chicago during St. Patty’s Day weekend and I knew this is what I was looking for in a city! No, Chicago isn’t exactly foreign (one can argue), but it’s my first and last stop within the United States, and I can’t think of a better place to visit. Chicago is home to the basketball team the Bulls (ha.... go Lakers), the Sears Tower (nobody will EVER call it the Willis Tower), Kanye West, Common, our 44th President, Oprah, and an Irish Pub for every man, woman, and child. The winter is cold so you’ll want to drink...

Travel Tips Part 1

July 14, 2009  |  No Comments

Couple more weeks until I touch down to the first destination: Chicago! But before I leave on a jet plane, there’s a good amount of things left I have to do. Here are a few tips that might come in handy if you’re planning a long trip of your own: • If you've got a Capital One credit card, use it on your trip! Capital One is one of the few credit cards that doesn't charge a foreign fee when you use it. JP Morgan Chase, Wells Fargo, and US Bank are among the ones with higher foreign transaction fees....

Preparation is Key

June 25, 2009  |  No Comments

Even though it sounds romantic to just one day walk from my cubicle to the car to the airport to embark on my journey, a lot of planning must be done for the trip. In the next month my passport will do some busy traveling, visiting many foreign consulates (India, China, Thailand, South Africa to name a few). With each stop it’ll obtain a visa that will allow me entrance into the country. This is Trang. She’ll be throwing parties at taking care of my apartment while I’m around the world. All kidding aside, I can’t ask for a better...
