Hello everyone! I wanted to take a moment to cross post a link to my newest article about my travels to Kiev, hosted by Wheat City Magazine. You can read the article containing the interviews I did with the protesters on the Maidan here. I have another article that I have written that goes deeper […]

On the Road in Rajasthan (Jaipur, India)

A short video of my epic road trip from Jodhpur to Jaipur and then onwards to Delhi, where I caught a flight to Almaty and then Kiev. I had asked to stop for a snack, for some fresh roadside samosas, so we had pulled into a local market in a small town between Jodhpur and […]

The Maidan (Kiev, Ukraine)

The last time I visited Kiev was back in the summer of 2010, and it was blisteringly hot, full of packs of wild dogs, gypsy cabs, and general wackiness. Landing on a plane from Budapest on ’10, we exited the aircraft directly onto the tarmac and were shuttled through a very simple terminal, into a […]

La Recoleta Cemetery (Buenos Aires, Argentina)

I had always wanted to visit Buenos Aires, Argentina for one reason–to see Evita’s grave! I have been a fan of the charismatic and infamous first lady since I first saw the movie “Evita”, starring Madonna. As a young kid at the time, her style and her forceful personality struck a chord with me, and […]

Floating Down the Ganges (Varanasi, India)

Part of the included activities for Varanasi, as part of the GAdventure tour I joined, was a sunrise boat ride down the River Ganges. This event was an absolute once-in-a-lifetime experience (although, truth be told, I’ve experienced it several times now). Seeing the crematoriums alongside the Ganges was truly astounding, although it was difficult for some […]

(In this video, you can see the wedding procession I later crashed; it’s filmed from a rickshaw I was riding, that actually crashed into a car midway through the video. I flew off the rickshaw and landed on the ground, hence the several seconds of black in the video, before my friend and tour-mate, Rick, […]

Cairo, Egypt from the Pyramisa Hotel

The city of Cairo, Egypt from my hotel room at the Pyramisa Hotel in downtown Cairo. This was shot in January of 2011, just before protests rocked the nation and changed the course of Egyptian history forever. And yes, I was there when that happened, and I will blog about the entire experience (including US […]

Driving on the Roof of the World (Leh, India)

Driving along National Highway 1D right outside of Leh, India (in Kashmir). Half of the year these roads are closed due to extreme snowfall, as they pass right through the highest parts of the Himalayan Mountains. The roads are maintained by the Borders Road Organization (BRO) and it’s actually really hilarious because every sign alongside the […]

Stone Town, Zanzibar (Photoset)

I visited Stone Town by ferry from Dar Es Salaam, after a long and arduous tour of East Africa (including all the major Kenyan and Tanzanian national parks). It was a welcome and relaxing end to a rough safari, and the ferry ride from Dar Es Salaam to the island of Zanzibar, which sits about […]

Jaipur By Tuk-Tuk

A video I shot while riding around Jaipur last winter in a tuk-tuk, so you can get an idea of what it’s like on the streets of Jaipur, India.
