The Egyptian Revolution

Traveling to Egypt in January of 2011 was one of my most intense travel experiences–and I don’t say that lightly, considering I’ve traveled to many crazy places during many crazy events! I’ve taken awhile to write about this because it was such an all encompassing experience. It’s hard to really do the whole thing justice; […]

Majorelle Garden (Marrakech, Morocco)

I visited Morocco several years ago–I believe it was back in 2010 or 2011—and it was a fabulous trip, full of the most amazing natural vistas, stunning architectural marvels, as well as lively markets and very friendly people. I had always wanted to visit Morocco, mainly because that’s where Penny Lane, the groupie from the […]

Kibera Slums (Nairobi, Kenya)

Going to sub-Saharan Africa for the first time was quite an adventure. I had always wanted to visit West Africa (Ivory Coast, Liberia, etc), however, I had a few friends who wanted to do the whole safari thing and see the Serengeti National Park and the Ngorongoro Crater, so I decided to tag along. Well, […]

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 […]

Crashing Weddings in Varanasi, India

(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, […]

The Taj Mahal (Agra, India)

I travel to India A LOT. Let’s just get that out of the way before anything else is said. I have invested in several businesses in India and I have a lot of friends there, in addition to simply loving the country. That being said, I’ve seen the Taj a lot. More than 3 times, less […]

Gold Zanzibar (North Coast, Kendwa)

These photos are from my stay at the Gold Zanzibar Beach House and Spa on Zanzibar’s north coast. It was a lovely property, absolutely stunning architecture, which was complemented by the natural beauty of Zanzibar’s northern shore. The Gold Zanzibar is a new property in the area, and it benefits greatly from having brand new […]
